Here is the video for the first annual AASPI Photo Walk, held here in Melbourne on July 27th. I attended and met up with some of Melbourne’s best street shooters. I shot with my Ricoh GR3 and was extremely happy with the results, as usual.
Join me as I review the Olympus Pen-F and shoot the suburbs! I look after my daughter in the morning on weekends to give my wife a well earned break. To combat the boredom of spending time with a screaming toddler and to avoid rethinking my life decisions I picked up this camera and have been shooting it solidly since purchasing it.
Now in its 7th year, SITHOM is a street photography and photojournalism exhibition that celebrates the decisive, and often indecisive, but always graceful moments within our gritty, yet beautiful city of Melbourne.
Took my beloved Ricoh GR to the beach, but I didn't want to get it wet. To avoid unwanted moisture I brought with me my super limited, super secretive, limited run water housing...
Join me on the streets of Melbourne as I wander around aimlessly with my Ricoh GR and make some truly terrible photographs (I found an oven this time!). Along the way I share my thoughts on this little pocket sized monster of a street shooter
or this video I took the winning Ricoh R10 and film Kodak Tri-X 400 into Melbourne's CBD for some street photography. Wasn't too bad either! The little R10 is a real winner and Tri-x really ticks my boxes. I've been loving Black and White film for such a long time and I'm really seeing why Tri-X is such a go-to for many photogs.
I managed to cop a freebie ticket to the 2018 AFL Grand Final between Collingwood and West Coast. While I had no vested interest in either team winning, Collingwood fans are insufferable at the best of times so watching their team fail in front of them was the ultimate prize. I captured some of the action inside the MCG, but there was more action outside after the game. Shot with my Ricoh GR and converted to Black & White for justice.
Held annually since 2012, “Shot in The Heart of Melbourne” or SITHOM is a Street Photography and Photojournalism exhibition that celebrates the decisive, and often indecisive, but always graceful moments that occur within our gritty, yet beautiful city.
