As photographers, putting work out into the world is a touchy thing to do. Especially with projects that we feel strongly about it can be very daunting to open yourself up to criticism. A while back, my mate Joel Devereux released a hardback book called Food Porn which was a beautiful, camp, fun ode to hot men and food. Apparently not everyone was impressed. Joel received a few complaints but one very enthusiastically worded one about how disappointing the book was because there wasn’t one penis in it. Joel had never actually promised peen in the book. If you are complaining about the price of a book just because it doesn

This piece published yesterday in The Age annoyed me with its opening sentence. The headline reads, Blue ribbon inner east sees 100% growth through immigration. Blue ribbon means they are prime and safe conservative party seats. I went on to read the piece, which was of no consequence as it didn't tell me anything I did not already know.

Why I read the piece was that I could not understand inner east being conservative. In my mind and to my knowledge they are either Labor(sic) or Green.

I would like you local people to tell me if I am wrong thinking of Richmond, Abbotsford and Collingwood as being inner east. In the article, Kew and Hawthorn were included as inner east, but I consider them middle suburbs. Lordy though, so too included were Doncaster, Templestowe and Box Hill as being inner ...
Autumn Leaves

A couple of weeks ago I went on a naked adventure with the group Get Naked Australia. In the year that they have been running the Instagram account they have very quickly grown their following to over 220,000 but it seems that Instagram has gotten it’s prudish pants on and the hashtag #getnakedaustralia has been shadow banned which means a lot of the images using that tag don’t show up if you search it.

The organisers are now increasingly concerned that the account will be shut down which would be a real shame and a completely hypocritical move. There are accounts on Instagram that show way more than the GNA page. They are on a mission to celebrate body positivity and the

Thanks to My Husband and I  for the questions: Town or country? Coffee or tea? White chocolate or Dark chocolate? JP  Thanks JP for the questions, I’ll start with the easy ones first. Coffee or Tea: Easily Coffee!!! Every day, every morning give me my coffee. I do like a tea when I am feeling sick. But hands down give me a good coffee and I’ll probably do anything you want. coffee White or Dark Chocolate: I definitely prefer dark chocolate I am not a big fan of white chocolate. But I am very much a chocolate in all ways, shapes and forms. 8-Surprising-Health-Benefits-of-Dark-Chocolate744-380x292 Now I am thinking about having a hot coffee with some chocolate ...
So, the Victorian Liberal Party is debating torture for young gay people, in the guise of conversion therapy (I am barely able to give it that name, as it is too respectful a term) and that fool Greg Hunt likens it freedom of speech. Really?

Of course, it is just sour grapes from the religious right having lost the battle over gay marriage. It is the religious rights bitterness leaking from everyone of their holly orifices because more and more of society is rejecting their out dated religious beliefs.
I believe this was tram terminus in Findon, Adelaide. What I really want to know is what the Prohibited Area sign on the far right about? Is it a parking ban, extreme language if it is that, or a rifle range or who knows what.


Isn't this next photo just  brilliant. The tram driver and conductor are having a break at the Morialta tram terminus within the Morialta Conservation Park to the east of the City of Adelaide. While it is to be expected that there are no houses within a park, I expect there weren't houses either before the tram entered the recreational park. Now, it is a safe bet that the area before the park is full of houses. ...
As we all know, I have been doing a lot of photo shoots of late. It’s easily the highest output that I’ve ever created since I’ve been doing photography and it’s not really looking like it’s slowing down any time soon. At least the next month is pretty busy. Yesterday I did two photo shoots, both with very sexy men in them and I’m pretty confident those downloads will be popular. The morning shoot on Sundaywas a tight bodied Brazilian guy who had no qualms about posing nude and hard in the early morning light looking gorgeous. The afternoon shoot got its own recap as you read here. In three weeks time I’m finally shooting Tate Ryder again. He’s making a comeback to porn and has his own Onlyfans page ...
