Spectra light installation

The inaugural Dark MOFO festival has been a great success in Hobart.

Last Saturday I was able to photograph one of the most popular pieces of the festival : Spectra by Ryoji Ikeda. 16 massive xenon lights shot their beams 15 kms straight up into the atmosphere.

The shoot was quite tricky as they were people moving very quickly, the timber floor was shaking a lot, people were bumping my tripod, etc. I’m happy to have pulled that one of ! Hope you enjoy it.

Below is the view looking straight up from the centre of the installation.


Portraits of MMA fighters

I have just re-processed a shot that I took at a mixed martial arts event in Hobart a while back.

I love the intensity of his eyes.  The image was taken just before the fight… the adrenalin was definitely pumping.
