recent picture taking

I have to play a big catch up on my blog - so I might lump a few blogs together in one, then it is much easier. I have had a few photography jobs come up recently which has been very fun. I've photographed mostly people, some fruit and some bands.

Tono need a new promo shot for a BFM gig, so we took this. Because his Finance Company changes a bit, it was easier to keep them to Hans Solo and Theodore Roosevelt.
Here's a cool video of Tono and the Finance Company.

Then, Miss Hannah Curwood needed some promo pictures to take with her to the UK. We sequined a horse, chucked on some glitter and spent a lovely afternoon out East. It's quite nice having a horse lick your cheek while you're shooting.
This is my favourite of the many:
And Hannah and I both like the creepy factor of this one:

Paquin has just released their E.P. and their first gig is coming up in June. I newspapered my living room and (very carefully) placed them on the couch.
There are also some sweet shots where the wee kitten Alvin got amongst the papery domesticity.

And here is Simon Comber playing live at Golden Dawn in Ponsonby. Best stage ever! You can listen/download his sweet tunes here.

sad blog

Hello friends,

My computer was stolen last week by a bad, bad robber who came in while we were sleeping. Anyway so I have a few blogs to catch up on. My new computer should come this week and then I will have some time to blog and post pictures.

I just drew this cover art for my friend Tom Healy's new band Paquin. I think the music is rad and you can listen to it here.

Crafternoon Tea

I hosted my first crafternoon tea today. It was mainly an excuse to be able to use all my lovely things from Mrs. Moore AND so I could make this amazing butterscotch rhubarb cake.
It's two vanilla and rhubarb cakes cut into two, with a caramel cream cheese icing in the layers along with more baked rhubarb.

My darling friends made lemon meringue tarts and delicious banana healthy biscuits. Somehow two bottles of wine were also bought over too!
