Guest Post: Ja Lu St, Telling A Story

The old saying goes a picture tells a thousand words. Its hard to capture the full story in one photograph however some of the best images capture a hint of it. A photograph tells you a lot about the person who clicked the shutter.

Stop Shooting Backs and Focus on Faces

This is the sort of advice I wish I had been given years ago!

Your photographs are richer, more interesting and connect with your audience much better. This short guide will help you overcome the fear!

Homeward: Ballarat

I grew up in Ballarat and since moving away, I always try to make it back home to explore. This photo series covers the sights, nooks, crannies and hot spots that make up this oddball heritage listing obsessed town.

Red Hot Australian Summer

This short project was shot over a few weekends at the famous and during the summer months often crowded Torquay Surf Beach. It examines this beautiful location's appeal to local, tourist and weekender alike through exposing the surf and sun culture mixed with documenting the crowds on the beach street style. It was shot entirely on a plastic fantastic Olympus 35mm point and shoot loaded with cheap Fujifilm Superia XTRA 400 film.

It’s little beauty and a true hidden gem of the Olympus compact line of the mid-1990s
