TISSOT Exclusive LIVE-NBA Finals Party - Sydney Overseas Passenger Terminal

With a select group of local sports and fashion identities and the events own HUGE satellite dish parked out back - TISSOT hosted an exclusive LIVE-NBA Finals Party at the Sydney Overseas Passenger Terminal Cargo Hall, on a perfect sunny autumn day. NBA and Australian Boomers stars Isaac Humphries and Sterling Brown did a pre-game warm up interview; shot goals in a mid game free throw comp as entertainment against Josh Dugan of the Cronulla Sharks and Lachie Whitfield of the GWS GIANTS. There was American themed food; Burgers, Tacos, Caesar salad, Nachos, all of which was rather good; washed down with beer, water or wine.. Or a coffee; which was how I started out the day..

Head On Photo Festival & The Fujifilm X100F

It's now the last week of the 2019 Head On Photography Festival here in Sydney. Thanks to Head On and Fujifilm Australia I have been sponsored with the fabulous X100F to document openings and well; whatever from the festival catches my eye. I've seen quite a few shows. I sat in on about 10 artists talks at the Head On Hub - and I certainly would not have attended quite so many if I had not wanted to document the photographers speaking - and that was a HUGE bonus as it was a really wonderful experience hearing these talented artists talking about their work. Put these talks on your list for next year; they are free, full of insights into photography, I just felt like I was getting topped up with ideas and inspiration. There are some more openings this week and of course, the HUB is still open with a lot of great work, shows are still up around town; get your skates on and check out as much as you can. I hit the Royal Botanic Gardens this afternoon, it was a beautiful sunny day here in Sydney! Mouse over the image for full details - click image to view larger.
