Earlier this year, I collaborated with AER design to create a set of hero images for Melbourne’s “Winter at Fed Square” campaign. We worked on producing 4 final artworks, that had the flexibility to fit different print formats, digital promotions, way finding, signage and an animation. I couldn’t have asked for a more iconic Melbourne location than Federation Square to have the work displayed. Special thanks to Stray Orbit for the excellent retouching work you put in to help me hit our deadline and 77 productions for the animation.
Here are a few images and final artwork from the shoot.
I recently made another visit to the United Stated to attend the Creative Mornings Summit in Austin, Texas. We started our road trip with Creative Mornings crews from Oakland, Montevideo, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Tijuana and Melbourne. Following the event, I joined Phoot Camp friends David Worthington and Kristina Yamamoto for another road trip from Portland back down to LA where we drove, hiked and photographed some of the most beautiful spots in between. We had almost made it to LA, with coastal fog obscuring most of our Big Sur drive. Despite the poor visibility, it actually made for some dramatic photos which I hope to share more of soon. This was the Bixby Creek Bridge which apparently rarely ever looks like this.
I recently converted one of my old backup cameras into a “Full Spectrum” DSLR. The process allows me to use the camera to filter out specific ranges of light using filters. I was specifically interested in photographing in the infrared spectrum of light and brought my camera along to a weekend away with a few talented photographers in Mt. Beauty, a few hours drive from Melbourne. This is one of my favourites from the weekend. Im thrilled with the results! I’ll update the “Projects” section of my website soon with a few more, once I get around to sitting down in front of it all!
Sharing a studio with One Fine Print has its perks. We had some fun filling up our massive office walls with some huge new prints! You can read more about them here and check out the little timelapse we made below!
