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. There's some street, some urban, some documentary and landscape in an effort to give you a glimpse of Ballarat from my point of view.

Street Photography in New York & DC, 2018

Early in the North American winter of 2018, I was lucky enough to spend a couple of weeks in NYC and Washington D.C. While there, I shot roughly twenty rolls of film mostly Kodak Portra 400, Fujifilm Superia 400 and Ilford HP5.

My Favourite Film Stocks

Since beginning my switch to film in mid-2017, I've tried a handful of different film stocks from budget to pro in a variety of cameras. This short list are my favourites to shoot street and any other kind of photography!

I only just got the little film Contax… Continue reading Abandoned Petrol Station, Maribyrnong

One Day in NYC with the Contax TVS Digital

While in the US in January, 2017 I took the little and severely outdated Contax TVSd out for a wander around Midtown, Chelsea, Brooklyn and the Financial District. I pretty much just used it to snap some really touristy shots, pretty much just whatever I saw while walking about. As usual, the TVS was a… Continue reading One Day in NYC with the Contax TVS Digital

One Day in Melbourne with the Contax TVS Digital

I took out my little Contax TVS Digital, one of my all time favourite cameras for a day of shooting in Melbourne's CBD and a few sneaky frames on the way to the train. It was a bit wet, rainy and overcast all day so I was only out for a few hours so there… Continue reading One Day in Melbourne with the Contax TVS Digital
