Muay Thai kick boxing, Thailands national sport. In Phuket, Patong Beach, Thailand, cars drive down every street with speakers blaring advertising each nights special event. “TONIGHT TONIGHT BIG FIGHT!” I paid a little extra to sit ring side so I could really feel the action. I was so close I was able to lean against the ring and poke my camera up and under the ropes to get a clear shot. The fights are a must see for anyone trying to experience the heart and soul of Thailand as you can see the passion in their eyes as they face off with their opponent. Fighters from around the world including Australia and Afghanistan come to challenge Thailand’s elite and I was even surprised to see the seriousness in boys as young ten who entered the ring and never held back.

Go see it for yourself when your in Thailand next.

Almost a year ago now I did a shoot for The Cipher Dance Academy to help promote the studio and its classes. The studio has continued to grow since then and there have been many more dance events and a few new teachers added to the roster. If your interested in learning an urban street dance style such as locking, popping, krump, breaking, house or hip hop then check out CDA some time soon!

Live a life

Hidden in Perth city behind the gates of the Condor Carpark lies a treasure trove of wonderful, graffiti delights. Multiply stories above and below sea level covered in art work is a privilege for those who are lucky enough to hold a cap space here.

Up early at 4:30am to line up for a good spot to sell goods at the Canningvale Markets. Old clothes, toys, books, jewellery and shoes, still in good condition looking for a new home. We didn’t make a fortune but it was a fun way to clean out the closet.

Four men set out on a journey with the challenge of completing a 100km walk within the constraints of twenty four hours. Raising money for The Motor Neurone Disease Association of Western Australia (MNDAWA), they trekked on foot averaging 4.7km an hour.

They had the support of friends and family along the way and not even the blistering sun, wild Kangaroos, bulging blisters, or deranged criminals on the run could stop these men on their journey.  From 7am Saturday morning until 4am the next day they successfully complete their task in record time.

Part of the walking team are members of  the Ups ‘n’ Downers Square Dance club who are all helping to raise money for the MNDAWA.

Loved ones say goodbye as they fear they may not return alive

On the Brookon Hwy, Western Australia

They solider on like Rock Balboa in Rocky V

Throw away your Nike's, these will do

At the halfway mark, only 50kms to go

There's no looking back, it's too dark...

Mission accomplished!

Call out vol 6 at The Cipher Dance Academy. Perth’s #1 Popping event!

Two days before his wedding my friend Peter tells me he’s getting married and he need’s me to be there. I almost loose my job arguing with my boss to get time off with such short notice.

Weddings are always nice 😀
