k&a - happily ever after

I was so lucky to be asked to photograph such an amazing, creative and magical wedding. The last year has been quite hectic and I hadn't had a great deal of time for this sort of thing so when November rolled around the sparks were flying. I shot for about 6-7 hours and was able to spend the day surrounded by truly happy individuals. Kim made pretty much everything for the day and the ceremony was held in the backyard of their lovely old home in front of their little revamped retro caravan. 
Considering how much I enjoyed getting back behind the camera, I am hoping it means 2012 will bring many opportunities and if time is limited... make some. 
Here are some of my most favourite shots from the day :)

move forward like a shark through life. so many roads. so many stars. so much space. be easy. be the space between the lines. settle there. and live inside. tell me of the better days to come.

beth hoeckel.

i've always had such admiration for those with patience (mostly because I have almost none...).
A friend of mine recently shared with me the website for Ms Beth Hoeckel. This lovely lass creates a number of mixed media, painting and photography pieces, but most admirable are her collages.
All her collages are created using found paper and are in no way digitally edited (except for scanning in).
I loved her work that much that I grabbed myself one of her 'moonrise' (second down) prints, signed and numbered. A steal price at only $60.00 (US) and of course supporting such a brilliant artist. 
you can check out her website here to see more of her work and perhaps even purchase something for yourself :)

a few images I snapped from today :-) a wonderful day with some amazing moments. 

Currently on my playlist: lake light by breathe owl breathe
Dance with me, dance with me-
not in the corner.
We're both a ways away
from where we want to be.
Let the lake light
pour in.

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.” -Henry David Thoreau, Walden (1854).

La Sardina.

I just purchased one of these brilliant LOMO cameras :) 
hopefully it does not take too long to arrive, as I am keen, keen, keen to give it a try and also use it for my beautiful friend Kim's wedding which she has asked me to photography (candidly) in November.

"The peril of every fine faculty is the delight of playing with it for pride. Talent is commonly developed at the expense of character, and the greater it grows, the more is the mischief. Talent is mistaken for genius, a dogma or system for truth, ambition for greatest, ingenuity for poetry, sensuality for art." - Emerson

I just love how drastic lifestyle changes can really ignite creativity. 
I have been drawing and creating a lot and have been really enjoying it. 
These are my latest creations. They are digital imagery created in photoshop using a range of techniques, drawing and overlays :)
