Billy Cross for The Weekend Australian

Had the pleasure of photographing performer turned-entertainment mogul Billy Cross for the cover of The Weekend Australian. We did a range of images in studio and around his home. Billy was a great subject who put a lot of energy into our shoot and the results show. The cover is a nod back to his performing days in male review Manpower. There were so many great images that could have been used. Here’s the cover and insert page along with one of my favs. What a great afternoon

True Disbeliever

I can’t think of anyone I’ve met in person that I have less in common with then Senator Malcolm Roberts. He is a straight up climate change denier, which, coupled with his party’s views on immigration and multiculturalism are kind of at odds with my ethnically-diverse heritage with 2 mixed race children, & 24 solar panels on my home in my adopted country. But sometimes differences make nice pictures, and we had a nice time on this shoot. We casually discussed our differing views, with neither of us successful in changing the others beliefs, & that was that. Images for a story penned by Richard Guilliatt which ran in The Weekend Australian last week
