She’s wild and crazy but a truly talented musician and performer

Perth City, Australia

 

In the back alleys of Wolf  Lane in Perth city, Western Australia  I found Wally. Only 99 more to find.

Howard Lane hidden amongst a towering, forrest, of steel offices, reaching for the sky. Local artists The Yok and Stormy have brought the lane way to life and is a breath of fresh air for those going through the daily grind of the 9 to 5. This has got to be my favourite lane way in Perth.

The second instalment to the All Styles battles at the Cipher Dance Academy where dancers from all aspects of the art come together.

As the DJ pumps up the volume a circle forms and those that dare enter not knowing if they will ever exit.

Medal Jam 12 in Perth, Western Australia had a record breaking crowd and number of competitors.  With special guest Hideboo from Sydney on the judging panel along with local legends Burnz 1 and Edit, Medal Jam allowed dancers as young as 8 through to 30 something build a strong community of local dancers.

May the force be with you…

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

In the cipher

Say what?! I found this just outside the convention center. Now who is MR MEN?

Perth the city of lights

As part of winning the “Food glorious food” competition at mynikonlife I was granted the opportunity to write a food review and take photo’s at the Red Cabbage in South Perth, for the latest My Nikon Life issue out now. I previously posted about my dinner but here are all the pics I submitted for the magazine. 

 

 

I spotted an amazing artist in the city and stopped to get my portrait done. She did a great job and now I know what I’d look like if I were in a Manga comic!

King St by night the windows light up and our thoughts excite

On December 8th 2011 BETTY SUGAR, along with the National Breast Cancer Foundation, hosted a fashion event to help raise much needed funds to help fight breast cancer and to create awareness in an entertaining, fashionable and positive way.

The Foo Fighters and Tenacious D rock Perth! I took the day off work so I could line up early and to make it to the front of the crowd when the gates opened, but when the novice working the ticket scanners delayed our grand entrance we were disappointed to only get to second row. Smart manoeuvring and the pushing from the crowd behind me eventually led me to the very front. Normally DSLR camera’s with detachable lenses aren’t allowed into concerts but I was lucky to have my Nikon P7000, a small but powerful compact camera. All through the night, as part of the excited mosh pit, I enjoyed the show and took pictures to remember the awesome night that it was.

Jasin Boland a stills photographer for many of Hollywoods great films such as The Matrix, Green Zone, Safe House Misson Impossible  and many more shared his time to talk with us about his tips and techniques being on set during capturing all the action. A truly humble and inspiring person to learn from. Thanks to Camera Electronic for putting his event together.

 

For fun, fame or fortune

The Yok – My fav graffiti artist and here is some of his work outside a barber shop in Victoria Park, Western Australia

This is Perth’s 11th Medal Jam event which is a break dance battle also including a popping showcase, art and photography exhibition where I got to display some of my work. The event was held at The Cipher Dance Academy which celebrated its first year anniversary of giving Perth a dedicated Hip Hop venue. The event was a huge success and shows how Perths scene although small in comparisons to others has a strong community who all come out to support one another.

I was saving this nice bottle of Sake for a special moment after hearing some good news and catching up with good friends

 

 

 

Red Cabbage fine dinning in South Perth, the award winning restaurant is definitely worth a visit to experience the modern British cuisine. As part of my prize for winning a food review assignment at My Nikon Life I was sent on assignment to review their food, check the next issue of the Nikon mag for my full review and pictures.
