The Bank of New South Wales in Queen Street is one of many heritage listed buildings still standing strong in this growing metropolis that is Brisbane. The original building was actually built in 1928 only to be demolished and replaced in 1930, which is the building we recognise today! Back on the streets of Brisbane CBD today for the first time in a long time with my camera. Plans of hitting the beaches were changed due to wet weather 😔 Still a good day none the less. Caught up with the little brother and talked about his awesome adventures overseas recently 😊 . . . . . . #exploreeverything #wanderlust #artofvisuals #lowkey #blackandwhite #collection #photogrist #moodygrams #travelphotography #agameoftones #mobilemag #foundlost #visualarchitects #exploretocreate #leagueoflenses #streetdreamsmag #createexploretakeover #thisisbrisbane #urbanandstreet #streetphotography #clickclickboom #thevisualones #visitbrisbane #visitqueensland #createcommune #innourban #brisbane #globalnightsquad #igersbrisbane

Took my first ever self portrait today. It's crazy how much I love taking photos of other people and the scenes around me, but when it comes to getting behind the lens I feel completely awkward and uncomfortable. I've always been this way. It's a strange feeling and I think about it often. I don't have a remote trigger for my camera and I was working completely alone... So I had to set manual focus where I thought my face might be, hit the timer and then run to the seat sit down and awkwardly pose like I always do haha. I'm not sure if I'll try this again 😅😅 . . . . . #blackandwhite #blackandwhitephotography #blackandwhitephoto #blackandwhiteselfie #brisbanephotographer #brisbanephotography #brisbane #selfie #selfies #selfportrait #notphotogenic #instagram #photooftheday #nikon #tokina #photography #portraiture #bnw #bnw_captures @instagram #photoshoot #hawkers #smile #awkward #png #papuanewguinea #islander #island #australia

I can see the weekend in the horizon! This weekends gonna be a cracker. Two of my best mates get back from an epic America/ Canada holiday, I've got a personal business development meeting to get some plans on the white board (everyone should have a whiteboard) and then aiming to hit the beach for some much needed chills! Don't work all week just to get to the weekend and sit around doing crap all... Get out and get into it! 'You only live once' is a statement that's crazy overused, but as I get older I realize just how true these words are. ✌🏼️🌴🌞😊 . . . . . #exploreeverything #wanderlust #artofvisuals #lonelyplanet #welltravelled #byronbay #summer #growth #vzcomood #keepitwild #collection #photogrist #moodygrams #ig_mood #mg5k #portraitmood #agameoftones #beach #foundlost #portraitgames #exploretocreate #brisbanephotographer #createexploretakeover #superhubs #createcommune #thecoolmagazine #positivity #igersbrisbane #aovportraits #discoverportrait

As my last day of holidays comes to an end I reflect on a lot of things- 2016 as a whole, my mental and spiritual growth, and photography topping it off. Although tomorrow will be my first day back at work for 2017, I'll only be there for 9 more working days before I finish up at my current job and move onto new challenges. My outlook on this year, and the future, is the strongest it's ever been. A few people have told me over the past few months that there's no set style to my Instagram feed. I agree that it's an 'all sorts' basket and I'll always be completely content with that. I don't use my personal Instagram page as a contact point for connecting within the industry for work, but rather an opportunity to let many faces in many areas know that I'm out here.... This is me, my work and my feelings. Growing within different styles, abilities and understandings will always be far more important in my growth as an artist at this point....and for now building my Instagram following will always come second to that. This year brings a new job, a solid direction for photography, the setting up of a website for myself, a new Instagram feed for my professional work.........And possibly a blog. I wish everyone the best of luck and happiness as we start embarking on 2017! My evening is going to be spent watching a movie with a good mate, eating a crap load of popcorn and drinking coke 👌🏼😊 . . . . . #exploreeverything #wanderlust #artofvisuals #lonelyplanet #welltravelled #blogger #summer #growth #vzcomood #keepitwild #collection #photogrist #moodygrams #ig_mood #mg5k #portraitmood #agameoftones #beach #foundlost #portraitgames #exploretocreate #brisbanephotographer #createexploretakeover #superhubs #createcommune #thecoolmagazine #positivity #igersbrisbane #aovportraits #discoverportrait

In the last couple months I've had a fire in my belly which is almost unexplainable. I fire to push the rate at which I've been attacking life at for years now. It's amazing how a massive single negative event in your past can send your life spiraling downward mentally and emotionally, even years after when you had believed and convinced yourself things were all good. Since picking up a camera and starting to take photos, it's done soo much more for me then just that. It's given me direction, a bearing, a purpose.... But equally as important, the reason for creating order and organization in soo many other aspects of my personal life again- aspects of my life that have been in complete disorder and disarray for quite sometime now. I've possessed and lost many things in my life and one thing I can honestly say is I've learnt a better understanding of knowing 'the right time'. Knowing when it's the right time to let go, knowing when it's the right time to hold on, when it's the right time to stand up for your beliefs, when it's the right time to move on from that job that no longer gives back positive energy, or the right time to separate yourself from people who don't reciprocate the energy or love that you give them. The list is extensive. I've learnt the power of patience and how there is so so soo much more to that word and act than meets the eye. When it comes to my photography, I look back at my work and realize that I'm ready to move forward and step up the work I'm producing. Step up the quality, the creativity, my understandings of shooting in unfamiliar situations- everything as much as I possibly can. I'll lose followers, I'll gain followers, I'll lose followers who only started following me for a day or two only so I can follow them back (the shit's hilarious), but it won't matter in the grand scheme of things because I'm pushing myself to grow in this art form that I love.....which is all that matters right??... Love what you do, and do what you love always. Peace!
