Kayaking on Pittwater

Jacqui's friends have told her that on one of their latest kayaking trips across pittwater , that their kayak was nudged by what they believe to be a shark ( it is not impossible so... ) But we all decided to go for a little kayaking expedition anyway ( even if we did stay a bit closer to the rocks and not really ventured out into the middle )P8240002

Some beautiful rock formations out here, can you already see a model on top ? I can ...stylists please !P8240007
The mouth of the hawkesbury river, now there's a spot I would not go swimming, as there, I believe there to be sharks lurking for a meal for sure

Bet you your girlfriend can't do this

In Australia, when you have a car older than 3 years ( or is it 5 years ) every year you have to re new your car's registration, which involves a mechanical and safety control, now big open gashing rusty holes are a safety issue ( you try living near the beach and not get rust on your car ) So nearly every australian has had a go at "putty-ing up" or " Bogging"  the holes of rust to pass the control and get another 12 months to drive your car. Now I had never really done this before, and Jacqui was in there in a heartbeat, keen to prove how good she isIMG_0786
Jac's technique involves putting some newspaper and chicken wire inside first, so it the putty mix will hold plus you don't end up wasting a whole can on filing the insidesIMG_0962
Then she fills it up, and the trick is to so as smooth as possible to minimise all the sanding work once the putty has gone hard, and a good mix starts to go hard in 15-20 minutes, so it's not like you got all day to try and smooth itIMG_0963
putt putt putt putting away
bit of backlit putty work, all done with a smile of courseIMG_1201
and voila, a few days later and new car registration, Jac's the panel beater with finished productIMG_1204

now I bet you are not as lucky as me to have a girlfriend that can do that for you

Didn't take that many pics, as it turns out I was not really supposed to be backstage, but hey , what harm could I do. So I just hung back a bit, and well, we sort of already seen most of this collection when it was first shown to us at the fashion week in Sydney back in April, but a nice refresher none the less.
For more pics and a bit more of a story ( becuase I'm such a great writer ) go to the Frockwriter for a bit more

Dean Tirkot

Fellow photographer,Dean Tirkot, makes a great little video clip , using the Canon camera, with oneof my fav models Vanessa Breur


Meeting up with the lovely Abbie Muntz from Fauxpink to go over the editorial shoot I did for KAREN mag with Rachel Rutt, and Abbie is in the middle of retouching. I'm blown away at all the layers, I think I'm being nifty with photoshop when I have a image open and working on three layers, Abbie is in the double digits, blows my mind

Another day , another sunrise

looks like a fun little wave out there even though the tide is filling it up

Banana Time

Now my friends in Europe will hate thisIMG_3599
Banana harvest time, yes, Jacqui grows bananas in her backyard, me on the fence, and a coffee bean tree ( shrub) in the foreground as wellIMG_3607
not a massive bunch, still . . . not badIMG_3601
Tastes good IMG_3609
aaah, Australia, Seafolly parade one minute, banana harvest the nextIMG_3610
deserve one of these now, but that's the downside of Australia, it ain't no Belgium beer
