My mate MIck is a gun! He’s currently following musician Donovan Frankenreiter around the Aus & Nz for a series of free, live performances for his second year running.

Here is a taste of some of the work I did on Jack Irish with Guy Pearce for Essential Media.

This is a little concept I worked on while I was on holidays with the family. I took a call from my old friend and Art Director, Tyson Sheean from Hola Freeform. He asked me if I had any shots of a curvy road in my archives for a concept he was piecing together.

Andy’s business is called Studio Moore and there will be a website or blog to come (won’t there Andy **smile**). This project you see before you is one that has been [...]
Getting this image across the line was a hell of a lot of fun but time was not on our side. It all a started with a 5:30pm Friday afternoon call from a new client asking if I could do a last minute shoot with Michael on Tuesday (yesterday) after the long weekend to help [...]
A self indulgent, self portrait back of house at the LMFF 2012 – opening night
Last night 65 RMIT 3rd year Photoraphy students visited Rokeby Studios to have a chat with Marija and myself about all things business. Discussions varied from finance to staffing and how to and how to not budget a renovation such as ours. It was a wonderful experience organised by Sally Brownbill and Alex Syndikas. I hope [...]
I shot a number of branding images for my friends at Tank late last year and what a christmas treat to receive an interactive seasons greetings in my inbox featuring one of them! It’s a lovely idea and helps to give you a little insight into the fave objects collected by the creative [...]

Here is a recently published photo I took on set along with the article [...]
Here is a new set of images hot off the press of ‘The Raah Project‘ and their bespoke 16-piece classical jazz-rap orchestral ensemble set in a stunning back street rehersal hall, just days before their sold out gig at Melbourne’s Forum Theatre.

This is a recent shoot I did with swimming legend Michael Klim. We have been talking about it for way too long & last month I decided it was time to make it happen. I’m very lucky indeed to be surrounded by such a crack team that understood my vision and helped make it [...]
Saturday afternoon’s don’t get any better than this. Playing in the front yard with you two spectacular, beautiful kids is nothing less than perfection. Very special stuff indeed. Dad x
Recently Marija & I were asked by the good people at the ACMP’s emerging photographers group Trampoline to host a discussion on our thoughts on diversification in the industry.

I recently received a call from the Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize to let me know I’m a 2011 finalist. I was completely unprepared for the announcement and my heart felt like it was going to burst from my chest! Needless to say I’m pretty excited and exceptionally proud of myself. ‘Mossman Gorge – Monday afternoon’ was [...]
Dark Side of the Lens presents the art and inner voice of Irish surf photographer Mickey Smith. The six minute film lets you experience Smith’s aesthetics translated into beautiful practice. (“I wanna see waveriding documented the way I see it in my head, and the way I feel it in the sea.”) But then it rather poetically cracks open the personal philosophy of the artist:
I never set out to become anything in particular, only to live creatively and push the scope of my experience for adventure and for passion… The raw brutal cold coastlands for the right waveriders to challenge – this is where my heart beats hardest…
Brilliance! The crew took a road trip down the west coast of Mexico in a beat-up 1976 Winnebago, following the sunshine. Legendary surf director Taylor Steele captured the journey on film along with Chris Searl on stills. Clemenger BBDO Melbourne have in my opinion have made a little bit of advertising gold folks.
Recently we had a very rare spare day to kill so my stylin’ sister Andy & I flung a lovely little foodie test together. I hope you will be seeing more of the moore & moore duo popping up here and there from time to time. Your comments are most welcome & before you ask [...]
