I have returned. I don't know what that means just yet, but at least it's warm. I'm happy to be seeing old friends and looking forward to meeting new ones. Feel free to drop me a line some time. I do bite, but I tame nicely with regular feeding and contact.
I'm still in Berlin. Still dreaming. Still trying to work out what to do and how to manage the monetary aspects of my mid-20's day-to-day life. By profession, I'm an IT generalist with communication as my greatest asset. My German is barely passable. My understanding and usage of the German language could be described as 'scooping up a wounded butterfly with a broken backhoe'. This does not lend itself to a fruitful career in a German city. Yes, I can improve my skills.... but what am I going to do to buy food over the next 3 years other than wait tables like a broken university student? Let's not get into the complexities of explaining such
Wow. I'm always amazed how much this place has changed when I've been away for a while. What on earth are 'badges', and why on earth am I a llama? Llamas are cool still I guess. I vaguely remember them being an ongoing joke in the Maxis Sim games, and Silverchair's first album Frogstomp had a picture of one for some reason....
So, I guess I kind of live in Berlin, Germany now. I don't know a single soul here, but I'm okay with that for the time being. My mother is visiting from Australia next week, so I'll be getting a hold of some of my photo equipment again (speed flash etc). Time to get back to work.
Drop me a line if you're in Germany a
Well, maybe there is no need to be so melodramatic. Anyway, hello from wherever I have been the last few years (the land of paid employment, in case you're wondering).
Here is a comprehensive list of reasons for having not posted DA:
- Being swallowed by the corporate beast
- Falling in love (no, not with myself, though you may disagree)
- Having my laptop and DSLR stolen
- Lack of talent
- Fear of Eric's scorn
- Not loving you all enough
Anyway, the bad news is, I still don't have any new works to put up. The good news: I will soon have time to edit photos again. I'm off on another overseas excursion, so stay tuned for more exciting
Hello 2008, how have you been? I've been spending a bit of time chilling out, getting settled into my new 9-5 job and doing a fair bit of rock climbing. I heard you and 2007 aren't talking to eachother, what's going on there?
Hey, so, like, I was wondering 2008.... what have you got in store for me? I've been thinking it was time I started doing some more photography and having a bit more fun with photoshop. Do you think there's any possibility that you could help arrange for awesome people to get in contact with me about shooting? Maybe they could have cool ideas for wicked fashion alternative stuff, or some really moody portraiture.... or
After a week of feeling sorry for my poor self for being back in the country and still without gainful employment, I'm working hard at silly shenanigans. This time, with my wonderful friend and sometime-travel companion Pip - ~blairsavage (https://www.deviantart.com/blairsavage)
Somehow she managed to talk me into a quirky facepainting project of hers and the results are as follows:
But that's alright, because I got to take some piccies of her on the side. Hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed making them!

Recently, a friend of mine was disrespected on this site by some rude individual. My friend is a bondage artist who has worked with some fairly high-profile models and photographers on DA. The rude individual has for some reason taken it upon himself to watch my friend's rope-work gallery, though when thanked for the watch, he has decided to voice his disgust at bondage art.
He is quoted as saying: "Other than the beauty of the model, the binding (both as concept and as depiction) in your work is more objectionable than offal." and made it clear he was watching the gallery because of his appreciation of the model and not to "applaud your nee
Sounds like something my would-be employer will be saying to me as soon as I get back into the workforce after my 3 month jaunt overseas. But instead, this is something I'm saying to myself regarding photography - and back to work I have gotten.
So thanks to ~stillman3 (https://www.deviantart.com/stillman3) I got back in the saddle this week with another superb day of shooting, and yesterday I had the lovely pleasure of a crazy day of lollies and shenanigans with :iconmissbecca: and :iconbelieve-hope:.
So I'll be editing the pics the next few days and hopefully, by early next week my adsl connection should be up and running so I can swiftly upload the results.
Well, I guess my trip is drawing to a close - I'm on my final leg of the journey, through sunny Hawaii. I'll be back in Syd very soon, laying low for a little while, going through my 40gig worth of photos.... and then I expect to get back into some serious photography.
Any aussies out there, please feel free to get in contact with me if you'd like to shoot some time in October (or later), any kind of shoot - not just nudes.
Somehow, I find myself in Newfoundland Canada. I hope everyone is well and maybe, just maybe I might get some work up on the net some time in the near future.... holiday snaps mostly, but hopefully some of them are pretty enough to amuse you.
