bugGIRL :: Band Promo

The people who have known me for a while know that I started out as a music photographer. The first wedding I ever shot was for the bassist in a band that I had photographed who just so happened to like my very primitive style at the time. Moving to Brisbane from Wollongong nearly 3…

The Mercy Beat Promos

The Mercy Beat are an “electrifying” rock band from the inner suburbs of Brisbane (ha! I’m really funny). They play an uncompromising genre blending mix of fast rocky punk. They’ve been described as something similar to The Bronx, but they (and I) kinda disagree with that. Check them out for yourself and decide, I think…

The Dawn Collective Promos

These are the latest promos for The Dawn Collective, a band I’ve photographed before but have restructured dramatically to become a two-piece. This last one is a revisit of an older photo which I took when they were a 5 piece. And the original: Many thanks to Lauren and and Joseph (the provider of the…

Kaiser Chiefs and Razorlight

I had the privilege of checking out the Kaiser Chiefs and Razorlight at the Enmore Theatre on behalf of Reverb magazine, a cool little street press in Newcastle and the Central Coast. I wasn’t 100% familiar with either band’s catalogue but had heard songs by both and seen plenty of images of the Kaiser Chiefs…

Free Agent Crew Promos

It’s been a little while since I did the first set of Free Agent Promo shots. The guys have released an EP and a single since then and are in the process of finalising their 2nd EP. We got together to do some cover art for the EP and these were just an afterthought. The…
