Anonymous asked: what lenses do you own?
Right now I own a 50mm f/1.8 and a 17-40mm f/4
Anonymous asked: what camera bag do you use? I need a bag for my 60D and I don't know what brand or size to buy! I shoot with a 50mm which is pretty small so I don't need a lot of space for a lens.
I use a crappy crumpler bag that came with my camera. I would suggest getting a decent shoulder bag like this with the equipment you have, you may want to get the larger version of that bag as you might get additional lenses, speedlite or extra room for other things. I’ve been eyeing Tenba’s Vector line and Lowepro have so nice durable bags. I really need a backpack soon!
I’ve finally finished editing all of my good shots of Falls Festival, and I have a blog post sitting in my drafts about the experience, which hopefully I’ll finish and publish tonight. Now to upload them all…
Everyone go check out/follow Lizzie, just seen her pictures of Falls, shit is beautiful. Honestly, go do this!!!
Anonymous asked: I'm buying my first dslr soon! And I want to also buy the right accessories for it, so please tell me if I'm missing anything crucial. Camera bag, memory cards, and (obviously) lens. And one more question, what size memory card did you buy? 32g, 16g, 8g? I don't know how much room I'll need! I'm gonna be shooting concerts, and I know you've shot lots so I was wondering how many cards you take and how much space you use use up. Thank you thank you xx
AHHHH that’s so exciting!! All good, you will need lens cleaning kit and earplugs!!!
I have a ton of 4gb cards, this because i’m scared shitless of having 32gb of work and that card fucking up on me, i’d rather lose 4gb than 32gb you know?
For an average show with three bands, I’ll shoot between 8gb to 12gb of pictures. After every band or set I will most likely change cards unless I’m shooting a festival or a show with heaps of band on the bill.
Thank you, good luck and happy new year!
Well fuck, it's been a perfect year. First and foremost I need to thank every single person that has made a positive impact on me this year; my friends, editors, journalists, agents, managers, fellow photographers and you lot, the people who support me. Thank you so goddamn much!
This year I have met so many amazing new people, created so many amazing relationships and I couldnt be more pleased. I am so grateful for all of you. Grateful for the oportunities and everything. Thankful for your guidance, your trust and most of all your time.
This year I have worked so hard in networking; building relationships to create a network of talented people to feed off, be inspired and motivated by. I am most inspired by those of you I have come close with this year.
This year shat all over last year, no joke. I mean I shot more than double the shows I did the year before. I photographed my first festival. I started working for more publications. I started getting more work. I got published in spress twice. I got to shoot so much and I need to thank my editors so much for their time, effort and trust. They're just fucking amazing. I also need to thank the managers and agents who gave me their time of day and didnt tell me to fuck off when I emailed them for media accred. You know you're doing something right now people stop telling you to fuck off.
I've worked hard this year. I have hussled and busted my ass with stress and anxiety to make things work. And things are finally coming together as next year I will be hopefully shooting three festivals, which is freaking mind blowing! I will hopefully be getting a photo 'job' at a publication. I will hopefully shoot tons of shows. I will be working closer with a magazine. I will be doing work experience for Girlfriend Magazine and I am working on getting work experience at either TopShop, Myer, Royal Children's Hospital or something real awesome.
2013, please be good to me.
d4ncing-colf3r asked: Hi, I was thinking of getting the Canon G12. Is it a wood quality camera? Is it worth the 500 dollars I am definitely willing to spend on it?
I wrote and provided pictures about the G12 here. Check that out :) I basically carry my G12 in my bag everywhere I go when I don’t take my dslr. It’s a beautiful little thing, good for gigs and the usual stuff!
If you want to pursue photography I’d say maybe get the 1100D or whatever it’s called, it’s Canon’s entry level dslr and it’s around the same price as the G12, however if photography is your hobby and you’re just looking for a solid camera to get you by at shows and stuff you’ll be fine :)
Thanks for the ask!
