Aaron Bishop: A man, a guitar and a hill.

Sometimes last-minute shoots turn out great against all odds – you don’t have time to plan, you just work with what you’ve got… and what you’ve got turns out to be exactly what you need.

Aaron called me about his music promo photos one night – he needed them fast because his EP was set for release the next week. The following morning we went shooting in Bilambil. Aaron had some ideas, and I had some ideas, and together we made some really cool images. Here are my favourites.

(You can find Aaron’s music on ReverbNation and on YouTube)



Amanda Palmer Goes Down Under – More Specifically, to Byron Bay

Way back in February I had the honour of photographing Amanda Palmer during her interview with Mel Bampton for Yen Magazine. It was my first super-important shoot of anyone I really idolise, of anyone REALLY famous (this woman has over 50,000 Twitter followers!), and way outside the realm of live music that I’m used to shooting. Lucky for me, it was not so far outside of the realm of portraiture! So I figured, what better way to kick off my brand new blog than with a little AFP?

It was all very casual – I just shot while Amanda and Mel chatted, and I was really happy with how the photos turned out. Someone else must have been too – one of the shots was printed on a full page in last month’s Yen Mag, and another quite large on the page facing. Maybe one day Amanda will see them, and I hope she likes them too.
