Phil Ferguson AKA Chili Philly

I got to shoot the one and only Chili Philly for frankie magazine's Look What We Made book. 
I've been in awe of Phil's work via instagram for years, so it was a real pleasure getting to hang out with him for a few hours and getting a behind the scenes peek. Check out Phil's instagram at this link right here.

RMIT University - Meet the Maker

I had the pleasure of photographing artists and RMIT postgraduate art alumni, Julian Clavijo and Hannah Bertram for RMIT University's marketing department. RMIT published the photos with interviews online, and also as a large newsprint publication.

Julian Clavijo is a painter and sculptor, you can read his interview with RMIT here. Hannah Bertram is an artist working in the medium of dust, temporary art works made by sifting dust through stencils, read her interview with RMIT here.

Georgia Frances King - Editor

Sometimes I can't believe I get to meet the inspiring people I do and see the amazing homes I get to step foot in because of my job. My time with Georgia Frances King in her street-art-collecting parents' home was right up there with the best experiences so far. Georgia was previously the editor of Kinfolk magazine, assistant editor of Frankie magazine (my two favourites!), and is now the new Deputy Ideas Editor (what a cool title) at Quartz in NYC. Have a read/look at her interview feature over at Extraordinary Routines

I love what Georgia had to say about the curse of being busy. "When people are asked how they are, their answer so often is 'I’m so busy.' So I banned those words from my vocabulary and decided that I wasn’t going to define myself by how busy I am." - Georgia Frances King for Extraordinary Routines. 

Tai Snaith - Artist

Photos from my visit to Tai Snaith's drool-worthy home for Extraordinary Routines. Check out her insightful interview with Madeleine over on the Extraordinary Routines website, where she talks slowing down and balancing motherhood with her art practice. 

"I never used to have enough time but now I feel like that’s all just a concept – you decide how much time you have, you choose that. You can work instead of watching Broad City, or first thing in the morning. I’m just starting to feel a bit more in control of that." Tai Snaith for Extraordinary Routines.

The Hall - Aftermath of a house fire

After six years of renovating a four storey luxury home in North Adelaide, a fire started in one of the walls of the top floor. 

The top floor including a cinema, two bedrooms, a bathroom and a living area were severely damaged and smoke and water seriously damaged the remaining floors, altogether causing an estimated $1.5 million damage. The fire occurred just days before a 100-guest black tie grand opening. 

The owners were asleep on the second floor bedroom when the fire broke out. Luckily, their dog Murphy woke them up by barking and they were able to escape uninjured. About forty fire-fighters had to cut through the roof to access the fire and use cranes to direct water onto the flames. 

Ironically, one of the owners founded and ran a fire prevention equipment company that sold, installed and maintained the equipment. The equipment was installed in the house, but not yet on the top level.
