After wrapping up my assisting days with Gollings in 2001, this week I had the privilege of shooting side by side him, flying high above our fabulous city. John has been defining and informing aerial photography both nationally and internationally for a lifetime. His most recent projects include:
– groundbreaking 3D stereoscopic aerial views of Australian urban landscapes developed for the 2010 Venice Architecture Biennale, and featured in the Australian Pavilion.
– “Aftermath” – an exhibition of beautifully crafted bush fire images from the Black Saturday bushfires, exhibiting at the McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park from 18/11/12 – 03/3/13.
He has been an amazing mentor and it was really great to share our passion for photography again on this assignment.
What a spectacular night we had. Here’s some of my pic’s from the shoot:
This month I was interviewed for Gather and Fold a fabulous journal running on a referral system between creatives of all disciplines. G&F aims to provide an accurate snapshot of the art/design community – the relationships between emerging, outsider, unknown and celebrated designers, artists and creatives – through their connections of mutual admiration. It’s a lovely concept and a great read. Thanks to Ryan Russell and Byron George for referring me and thanks to Bonnie for the lovely chat.
A big congrats to Designinc for being awarded the Sustainability Award for Red Cross Blood Service at the 2012 IDEA Awards.
