Terror Universal @ The Metro, August ’17

Terror Universal @ The Metro, August ’17

Plagued with guitar issues, this set from Terror Universal just missed the mark for me. They came on 15 minutes late after what has to have been the most thorough stage setting I’ve seen, then the first 4 songs were spent trying to work out what was wrong with the amp (so no guitar for […]


Grinspoon @ The Enmore, July ’17

Grinspoon @ The Enmore, July ’17

Even after all these years, Grinspoon are still Aussie favourites. Two shows at the Enmore and the crowd was loving it! I spent most of the first three waiting for the CO2 blast and the inevitable jump from the drum riser. I got both, but wish I had my 16 on the jump.


Hockey Dad @ The Enmore, July ’17

Hockey Dad @ The Enmore, July ’17

Got to the Enmore early to catch two piece Hockey Dad as I enjoyed their set I shot last year at The Farmer & The Owl. Interestingly, my daily vlog also coincided with the first three songs, so if you want to see 4 minutes of me trying to find somewhere quiet at a gig […]


Dragonforce @ The Manning Bar, June ’17

Dragonforce @ The Manning Bar, June ’17

I shot Dragonforce at Soundwave a few years ago and really enjoyed their set, so I was pretty pumped to shoot them in a smaller club show! They were great!


The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus @ The Manning Bar, May ’17

The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus @ The Manning Bar, May ’17

Didn’t know anything about The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus aside from the controversy related to the stealing of a photo on their last tour of Australia, so I went to shoot them. Good show and some great photo opportunities.


Tim Rogers @ St Stephens Church Newtown, May ’17

Tim Rogers @ St Stephens Church Newtown, May ’17

Have shot gigs in a church a bunch of times before but this was the first time I actually felt conscious my shutter noise was on the loud side! Tim Rogers was in fine form! Didn’t know you could swig from a bottle of wine in a church tho!!


Steve Smyth @ St Stephens Church Newtown, May ’17

Steve Smyth @ St Stephens Church Newtown, May ’17

Have shot gigs in a church a bunch of times before but this was the first time I actually felt conscious my shutter noise was on the loud side! Steve Smyth for the most part was whisper quiet so I had to time my clickety clicks!


Toby Martin @ Carriageworks, April ’17

Toby Martin @ Carriageworks, April ’17

Carriageworks was an interesting venue to shoot Toby Martin at. There was no stage, no raised area at all, just the public sitting on tiered seating and the floor directly in front of him. And that tiered seating was flush with the rear wall of the building so there was no way to move behind […]


Wolfmother @ The Metro, April ’17

Wolfmother @ The Metro, April ’17

Wolfmother were totally on fire at the Metro!! This set was a band at it’s peak, a long time after they peaked. Insane!!!


Release The Hounds @ The Bridge Hotel, April ’17

Release The Hounds @ The Bridge Hotel, April ’17

After shooting promo with Release The Hounds earlier in the day, I also shot their set at The Bridge Hotel. There’s video of both shoots here: https://youtu.be/9iy2tHDaJMo


Nic Cester And The Milano Elettrica @ The Basement, April ’17

Nic Cester And The Milano Elettrica @ The Basement, April ’17

Didn’t really enjoy shooting at The Basement. Nic Cester And The Milano Elettrica was great, but no access to the front of the stage unless you squeeze through seated patrons enjoying “dinner and a show” isn’t much fun.


Olympia @ The Basement, April ’17

Olympia @ The Basement, April ’17

Didn’t really enjoy shooting at The Basement. Olympia was great, but no access to the front of the stage unless you squeeze through seated patrons enjoying “dinner and a show” isn’t much fun.


Violent Femmes @ Waves, March ’17

Violent Femmes @ Waves, March ’17

For fans of this band their set was a brilliantly plotted mix from their entire catalogue at Waves recently. The Violent Femmes definitely have a wealth of tunes to choose from but for my money it was rad to hear Never Tell, Life Is An Adventure, Jesus Walking On The Water and Country Death Song. […]


Coast & Ocean @ Rad Bar, March ’17

Coast & Ocean @ Rad Bar, March ’17

After a chance meeting with a random guy on a train a few weeks ago I went to check out his outfit Coast & Ocean performing at Rad Bar in Wollongong. Great stuff!! Check my vlog of how it all happened: 


Nuclear Assault @ The Manning Bar, February ’17

Nuclear Assault @ The Manning Bar, February ’17

It took them their entire career (and then some) but Nuclear Assault finally toured Australia.


Hidden Intent @ The Manning Bar, February ’17

Hidden Intent @ The Manning Bar, February ’17

Stoked to see an Adelaide band on the support slot for Nuclear Assault. Never heard of Hidden Intent before tonight but they killed it and won a new fan.


Tiger Army @ The Metro, February ’17

Tiger Army @ The Metro, February ’17

Tiger Army played a fun and energetic set at The Metro recently. Good to see such great vibes on stage too!


Fireballs @ The Metro, February ’17

Fireballs @ The Metro, February ’17

Good to see the Fireballs cranking out another round of shows, even tho there was hardly anyone there to see them. These guys used to pack out venues in the day!!


Mother’s Cake @ The Factory Floor, February ’17

Mother's Cake @ The Factory Floor, February ’17

Was sent PR about Austria’s Mother’s Cake recently in the lead up to this tour so went to check them out. Great set and surprisingly nice lighting too!


Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds @ International Convention Centre Sydney, January ’17

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds @ International Convention Centre Sydney, January ’17

Media photographers were only given 1 song from side of stage and behind a designated line to shoot Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. Here’s why I think this is a good idea: 


Airbourne @ The Metro, January ’17

Airbourne @ The Metro, January ’17

There was plenty of rock at this show from Airbourne. I knew the beer can thing was coming so got just to the side of it and fired off a few frames before my lens was covered in VB.


The Ugly Kings @ The Metro, January ’17

The Ugly Kings @ The Metro, January ’17

These guys were on it!! Never heard of The Ugly Kings before tonight but they won a new fan. Great stuff.


Birds Of Tokyo @ The Enmore, December ’16

Birds Of Tokyo @ The Enmore, December ’16

Great to see Birds Of Tokyo back with a solid new album. Awesome show too!
