MPP 013: EDM Music Photography, finding a niche you can make a living in and touring with a dance act (feat. Nathan Doran)

Nathan and I started doing music photography at about the same time in the same scene. We've taken completely different paths though. From his HXC moshxcore br00tal beginnings, he branched off into the nightclub scene and naturally into EDM music. It was a good move for him to say the least.

Caitlin shoots and edits different to most other photographers I know. Where in most other 2015 portfolios you might see faded, grainy and washed out tones KTB uses contrast and colour in her edits and her Alien Bees strobes to give you the kind of punch that Ali would be proud of.

I've been aware of Michelle and her work longgg before I knew her personally. She has been backed by some of the biggest names in rap in the country and as a hip hop fan that really means a lot. In a weird way, friends of the people you look up to also become the people you look up to.

MPP 008: Shooting music videos - triumphs, failures & horror stories (Feat. Ed Reiss)

I've followed Ed's work for a long time now. The cool thing about this episode is that it finally gave me a chance to reach out and get in touch. In this session we talk about his experiences working as a professional music videographer. In particular, shooting and all the things that can go wrong on a given day, balancing people's perceptions with...

Quick hack: 'S hooks' a sand bag in your pocket.

When you travel, every gram of extra weight is going to hold you back. Carrying 5 kilograms of gravel (sandbags) around the country is not usually the ideal situation. If you have an assistant to hold your gear - you're laughing mate. If like me, you don't then you might want to consider this $2 hack to save you weight, space and money. It's literally $2 for a packet of 5.

MPP 004: Moving to the big city to chase the dream (Feat. Warwick Hughes)

Warwick is an interesting character. Super enthusiastic, works hard, not afraid to take a leap of faith and the proud owner of a beard that could some day rival dumbledore. Since moving from Ulladulla on the south coast of New South Wales, he's accomplished a whole lot and seems to level up every time we talk.
