This is the fourth year Gareth and I have spent the day wandering around the outskirts of the Sydney Mardi Gras taking photos. It's always a fantastic day, such a good vibe, everyone is happy and it is one of the rare moments in Sydney when it feels completely acceptable to start a conversation with a stranger. There was a little drizzle early in the day, but it didn't dampen anybodies spirit - the festival was as fabulous as ever.Read More
Naoshima Island, also known as The Art Island, is on the South West of Japan's main island.

In addition, a number of unused local homes have been converted into art exhibits of their own, collectively known as The Art House Project. In this post I give you the "must know" details when planning your trip to Naoshima.Read More
Way back in June 2011 I travelled to the South of France for the Cannes Lions festival. I saw some amazing speakers including Malcolm Gladwell, Eric Schmidt and Patti Smith. I also had many many drinks at some amazing parties with some amazing people. In between all that, I took some photos with my Canon AE-1 loaded with some trusty rolls of Tri-X.
In the beginning of 2015 I was lucky enough to travel to Singapore with Ogilvy (for my day job as a Strategic Planner). Whilst I was very busy all week, I did manage to sneak out to take some photos before flying home on my last day.
