I’ve been working on this project for over a year now. Really it should have been finished a while ago, as in 4 years ago, once I came back from working on cruise ships. I do think though, that time has given me a greater appreciation for the images as I am no longer looking back on them as memories.
Rather than sorting the images in chronological order, I have paired them with another through an element that I feel connects them; to create tension or ease, to show familiarity or difference.
Only the final touches to go now! Hopefully I will have something to show soon…

It seems you can never expect at photo shoot to go exactly to plan, and today this definitely was the case. Ginger and Tonic, a fantastic a cappella group from Melbourne (that my fav house mate just happens to be part of), needed to update their photos since recently adding a new member to their group.
After finishing the more serious photos, we decided to do something a bit more playful so the girls hopped up onto the pillars just in front of the Melbourne Museum. After a few snaps the security guard ran over asking them to get down because the bikey gang (more like a group of bike enthusiasts), were coming through. Another photographer ran past and said for them to stay there, so they did!
In all the excitement I didn’t know quite where to stand but didn’t want to miss out on a great shot! I positioned myself in a place that I thought I wouldn’t get run over and still get some photos. And then they came, revving their engines, lining up at the start of the pillars.
And this is what I captured…
