URL switch


So... a few people have mentioned the fact that 'avfx' is kinda ... well.. what exactly? Nothing easy to remember that's for sure. I have purchased and in the coming months will transfer both the photo site and blog site over to this much more easy and clear URL for my purposes.

In fact it's already live and points to the photos. But at some point, this will reverse and avfx will simply forward to Onwards!


Here's a photo:

Shooter on the roof

A client gave me access to their rooftop today to shoot a piece. It was great to be up high in Wellington amongst shiny constructions. I could do a whole series just of rooftops! I'll post some glimpses in due course...

Birthday Camera

Well it's me birthday and my lovely wife and kids made me a camera cake! Knowing I'm a compulsive snapper, what could be more delicious than an edible 35mm cakestamatic? ;-)

Are we out of cheese and crackers?

Send someone out to get some! Quick!

See Here not anymore...

Well, the show has been taken down now and it was a highly pleasant and successful experience for me. The amount of imagery I sold far outweighed my expectations and overall the response to the show was great. I'll definitely do this again.

I'd really like to thank Sean Antrobus for helping me put it up, Chloe Holbrook and Derek Kelly for looking after it for me and Brian Lomas for helping take it down again. You guys made this whole thing possible and it really meant a lot to me.

In case you missed the show, here's a gallery of snaps of how it looked - please to enjoy:

Opening night is over but the show must go on!

The opening night for my show at Thistle Hall was a great success with standing room only a couple of points and a fair amount of purchasing! Not bad for my first show in 15 years...  I was too busy talking and dealin' to get any real shots of the crowd, but I did get some video on my new Kodak Zi8 cam so I'll post that later on. In the meantime here's a link to some shots of the gallery for those that can't make it... the show is still on and open until Sunday May 2nd, so you still got time to check it out.

Book sample images

Here's some quick snaps of how the book turned out... The myCanvas people have a really good web-based interface for putting together books and partner with Smugmug. I didn't need to upload anything to put this together. The print quality is fantastic too... click on the images below for a larger view:
