Sahara – awesome person, one of the most incredible souls I’ve known – very strong individual – actually ran Big Day Out for about 10-15 years from booking the acts through to ordering the portaloos.

In the 1990’s photography for me was about SLR’s & dark rooms, it was about printing your shots at 3-6am to ‘beat the light’ in you homemade darkroom to get your shots to press. I worked in music, hair and a little news, but love portraiture. Now I use a digital slr, but try to replicate shot control like in the old film days. I now longer make my living out of photography, but prefer to better my life by embracing a passion ;)

    Great portrait!

  • thanks Michael, one of these things that just worked… I was actually taking some pics of Sahara’s tattoo’s when, while dicking about a bit, she did this … camera loaded, click.
