I was asked to feature in the brand spanking new FBI magazine. Originally the plan was to use some of my existing band photographs that I have taken over the years for FBI, but as it turned out, we organized a two day shoot, featuring some of Australia's up and coming musicians in some of Australia's coolest fashion.

It was a wonderful experience, and the shot of Ladyhawke and Kirin from Mercy Arms ended up being the cover of the magazine! A great honor.

We shot over two days in two locations, though we made it look as though it was shot in the same place.

Firstly we went on a road trip to Kurnell (a wonderful beach side suburb in the south of Sydney, shadowed by the monstrous refineries behind, and illuminated by the glowing lighting of the airport across the water). Catcall, Anna Lunoe and Kato, Nik from The Lost Valentinos and Tom and Alex from Red Riders came along for the ride

The second location I shot at was on the opposite side of the bay, closer to the airport, just off La Perouse. This featured Ladyhawke and Kirin from Mercy Arms. We shot scenes right on sunset, so as we created a similar feel between the two locations.
