Some of my work collegues and I were so lucky to be able to go to the swanky swankfest which was the New Zealand Book Awards. Hosted at the Langham Hotel, we dined on some fine champane and food while rubbing shoulders with some great literary fellows.
We dressed up in our finest...

Our names were printed all over the place.
Though, sometimes we just can't hide our lack of class. (Butter everywhere!)
My friend Tono took me on an amazing photography adventure one day for an article he was writing for "Real Groove" about musicians moving to Auckland. We walked for SIX HOURS, stopping for cups of teas and photographing the musicians in their homes/studios.
Here is Joel from Popstrangers and below that is it in print along with Andrew from Die Die Die and Flip Grater.
