I took a little holiday to Japan a while ago. It’s an incredible place, on so many levels.  The people, the culture, the food, all amazing.
I love holidaying alone, it’s almost like gaining another sense, because you’re always so hyper-aware of everything going on around you – don’t get me wrong, I can’t wait to meet the right person to take with me and share all these new experiences – and talk about it all… But there’s something about just getting lost in a completely new city, and taking it all in. My son has started saying “yolo” (you only live once, for the less savvy…) a lot at home, and when I’m on the other side of the world – alone, yolo is definitely not just a word(?), it’s a state of mind.

They make a fantastic little family, and it was awesome part of their special day, both as friend and photographer.    
White Night, Melbourne ’14
So I've been down here in Melbourne for pretty much the whole month of February working on the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. Yeah, I know - Sochi, but from Melbourne. Hmmm... Well, I was working for Channel Ten (I'm an editor/director/vfx artist too) doing all of the music pieces you might see going to the commercial breaks etc. Aaaaanyway, a lovely friend I met down here - Sharon, insisted on taking me to White Night - an all night light festival similar to Sydney's Vivid festival. I'm glad she did, we had the best night! And props must go to Melbourne, for opening the National Gallery of Victoria for the whole night - until 7am. There's de ...
