"TAKING THE PHOTOGRAPH IS JUST THE FIRST STAGE OF THE IMAGING PROCESS"
"I do not want to make negative pictures about people, and so I do everything I can to help make them feel comfortable in front of the camera. That is what is going to control your picture, because you are alone if your subject is not with you. And that is the simple answer to getting a good picture."
Douglas Kirkland - legendary photographer to the stars
"The camera doesn't make a bit of difference. All of them can record what you are seeing. But, you have to SEE."
Ernst Haas - comment in a photography workshop, 1985

"...I have already had a huge response from the pictures, I have a list of photographers that are wanting to take photographs from Melbourne and Sydney and a designer noticed them last night that does high class couture and wants to meet when he's next over here. Zoo has asked for the name of the photographer when I uploaded the pics so I hope you don't mind but they have your email contact, it may generate work for you. ...."

NAME CHANGE - PIXEL PROJECTS IS NOW THE PIXEL PRACTICE.
Thanks for having a look at my port.
My main focus these days is devising concepts and then bringing them to fruition. This can involve hiring costumes, shooting backgrounds, buying stock images, and nearly always quite a bit of editing work. I also have quite a large wardrobe of my own including dresses,hats, gloves, jewellery etc.
The aim is to create a bit more of that elusive "wow" factor. I like images that make you stop and look.
I'm always looking for models to help bring these ideas to completion so have a look at my port and if like what you see and you'd like to be involved please contact me.
I'm very easy to work with and totally professional at all times. Because there have been a few less than professional people in this business I have now obtained a National Police Clearance Certificate for your peace of mind. You are also welcome to contact the models I've worked with.
I always insist on using a professional MUA unless you're a qualified makeup artist.
My aim is to produce a professional result that shows you at your very best.
Experience has shown me the best shots come when everyone's relaxed and having a bit of fun so there's always some humour on my shoots - often at my expense.
You're welcome to bring an escort but they must stay in the background while we're working, I don't work well with attentive mothers or boyfriends looking over my shoulder.
I have worked with the MM models and MUAs listed in the credits box below, most of them several times, and can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
