The other week I did some assisting work for Bev Short at the now infamous Fever Hospital.
As well as my usual assisting duties Bev asked if I could take some shots of her working for some future publicity. Bev usually lets me take a few shots when she is working on her own projects and I have put up some behind the scene shot previously but this meant I took quite a lot more than I usually would.
Anyway here’s what it looks like behind the scenes at one of her shoots…and yes that is a custom made snoot on the second setup 🙂 We are after all living in a number 8 wire and duct tape country…
Go see some of the finished shots HERE
My favorite shot of Bev is definitely the last one 🙂
Black And White: Rolleiflex 2.8 E, Ilford HP5+ 400 ISO Film, CanoScan 9000F Scanner.
At the Fever Hospital assisting… Had to step out while Jolene was being wrapped in clingfilm 🙂
Two mirrors… Don’t mind if I do

I walked past this the other day… Im not sure why they are all standing in front of the bus. I thought that maybe someone had been hit, but there was no one on the ground… But no
A couple of weeks ago Alex and I did a photo shoot for Wellington band Spook The Horses for a publicity shot for their upcoming album Brighter.
This was the first time for me shooting on a roof and the logistical quagmire of setting up lights and getting angles. Luckily we had a couple of extras to hold lights since light stands weren’t an option an apart from my equipment showing its age and a few workarounds with duct tape things went pretty smoothly (shots of setting up to come).
It was a great group of guys to shoot and I really enjoyed the shooting them 🙂

So Movember has ended and what better way to finish it (postponed due to camera dying) than to do a series of impersonations of famous moustaches 🙂
A big thanks to Ben for helping me out with these shots.
I was wondering what they were going to do with these information stands that are left over from the Rugby World Cup… Apparently they will be used for tables for bottles 🙂
On Cuba Street…
Last week my trusty Nikon D70s decided that after 8 years of being thrashed that enough was enough.
This post is a dedication of sorts to all the fun we have had together over the last 8 years…
This is the last shoot it ever took… Finishing up the shoot for Spook The Horses on a rooftop in Wellington… You will be missed 😦
Before the internet was really popular this was how we used to do “File Sharing”
