Lyrical Equations

Last week walking around Brisbane I met Ben from Lyrical Equations, he was out hustling & promoting Brisbane Hip-Hop.
Super down to earth guy doing his bit to help the youth of Brisbane and get them motivated & into doing something positive with their time.

A quote from the Lyrical Equations Facebook page.
“Lyrical Equations is one of many re-engagement programs under the “YATF” Youth Are the Future banner. We are an organisation that covers every profession within the Creative Industries.
Over the past 4 years we have been working in numerous Schools and Community Organisations across Queensland delivering tailor made programs for disenfranchised, disadvantaged and disengaged youth of all ages and backgrounds. The workshops can cover a whole range of components from learning how to write rhymes “Lyrical Poetry”, learning about different styles of Hip Hop Dance, learning about music production and Beat Making, Painting and Drawing and or Theater and Performance.

Big props go out to the Lyrical Equations team for their efforts!

Brisbane Protest

This afternoon I was walking around Brisbane (I have just moved here!) shooting some street and just getting to know Brisbane a little better when I came across a peaceful protest.
untitled shoot-002-web
The protest centered around West Australian Premier Colin Barnett’s push to close isolated Aboriginal communities in Western Australia.
When I arrived there was already an Aboriginal Elder speaking so I took some time to listen to what he had to say until the urge to take some photos took over, after a while the protest moved from King George Square onto Adelaide St, blocking traffic in both directions in the middle of peak hour, from there the crowd walked down Adelaide St to William St stopping again at the William St & Victoria Bridge intersection (It’s around here that I get a bit lost as to where the Protest walk went, being new to Brisbane and all) from William St/Victoria Bridge the protest made its way back to King George Square for the finish.

I’ll leave you with some photos from the protest.

An email from Mission Australia.

I received an email last week thanking me for my efforts photographing the Mission Australia Xmas lunch in the park last year.
I must say that it was an honor and a privilege to be able to photograph such an amazing event! (I am looking forward to doing more events like this in the future)
I still have to go through and spend some more time editing some of the photos from this event for my portfolio.
When I do I’ll post a few up here as well as them going on my website.

Barbed Wire

Another from around Perth somewhere. I saw this out the corner of my eye as I was walking past and just had to stop.

Barbed Wire

Saint Mary’s

During my walk around Perth the other week I walked past Saint Mary’s Cathedral as soon as I saw it I knew the shot I wanted and how I wanted it to look.
It was around 11am so the sun was fairly over head creating harsh shadows but that was part of the look I was after. I used a 10 stop ND filter to blur the water running down the water feature in the center. I was even lucky enough that the seagull didn’t move too much and only his (or her) head is blured, can you find where the seagull in the photo?

New Lens

While I was out and about on Monday I also added another lens to my bag, a Sigma Art 35mm f1.8.
This lens is much hyped about and is a focal length I like the look of. The low light capabilities of the f1.4 are also great.

I took my dog, Casper, to the groomer this old hotrod was parked in the car park so I snapped a few frames of it. (I took my camera along so I had something to do while I waited)

This shot is at f1.4 and it straight out of the camera, no editing only resized for the web. I cannot wait to shoot more with it!
