Some more photography over the weekend! An intimate summer evening of beautiful acoustic tunes from Michael Menager, launching his album “Clean Exit” at the Murrah Hall. Michael was joined on stage by Heath Cullen and Damon Davies, with support from Connor Ross. A great night!

On the weekend I had the pleasure of taking photographs for the local community hall’s 110th birthday celebrations – a variety night of local musicians, performers and delectable curries and company. The Murrah Hall is a not for profit venue on the Murrah River, 15km south of Bermagui, NSW. Built originally as a school and community meeting place in 1893, it came under threat in the 1970’s to demolition after years of neglect. However, overwhelming support saw the hall restored, and newfound potential of the space was capitalised upon by the local artistic community. Since the 70’s, the Hall has become an important space for performers and their audiences alike – a symbol of the beautiful and enduring, local neighbourhood spirit.

I have recently treated myself to a new camera – the Nikon D600. The performance is certainly an amazing upgrade on my old D70s, circa 2005 – there’s no more graininess! Woo! Thought I’d share with you a couple of my first shots…

Independent Photographers Festival.

A couple of photos I took while traveling through Cuba some years ago are showing at the inaugural Independent Photographers Festival here in Melbourne at Tinning Street Gallery, in Brunswick from April 2 – 8. Here are some shots from the packed out opening night, plus close ups of the actual photos. If you’re about, go check out the festival – there’s plenty of things to see, including solo and group exhibitions, a film premiere screening and photo book & zine fair.
