W A T E R C O L O U R S

I photographed the lovely Watercolours at our friend's Katikati basil farm (near Tauranga) while trooping around on tour with Anthonie Tonnon.
We'd been on the road, had small amounts of sleep and small amounts of time, but still Chelsea glows among the greens.


 Here are some "behind the scenes" shots. We just can't keep Karlya away from that mint...

And this is my favourite Watercolours song, it's probably the most romantic thing I've heard.

W E L L I N G T O N

I visited a dear friend in Days Bay, driving out during a terribly wintry storm. 
The waves splashed over the road and onto the window of my borrowed car that had no speedo.
I fell in love with the hazy grey blues of the coast.

Paquin II

Press Release from Bones & Woods
  
Following the release of their first EP 'I' in 2011, Paquin releases 'II' the 2nd installment of their triple EP project on the 23 August. The EP features the first single "GUNN", which was well received by many a set of ears earlier in the year, and the brand new single "Glass Houses."
Paquin is the musical outlet of songwriter Tom Healy, producer for the likes of Die!Die!Die! and Popstrangers. 'II' was recorded at the band’s home base and recording studio, The Lab, in 2012. In contrast to 'I', which was conceived largely as a solo project, 'II' was arranged and performed by the live band, and showcases a movement towards a more dance orientated style of music. Joining the band for their upcoming tour is bassist Cass Basil (Tiny Ruins, Bannerman) who joins the existing line up of Tom Healy, Stuart Harwood and Westley Holdsworth.

'II' will be available on CD and online from the 23 August 2013.

Bob & Ruth's Wedding - Portrait Session

A week after Bob & Ruth's wedding, we went to the Manurewa Botanical Gardens to recreate the photo shoot that should have been. Bob had spent a few days in hospital after the ceremony but had recovered well. He had set Ruth's hair that morning, they got back into their wedding outfits (minus a forgotten fascinator) and it was like they had just been married that morning.
As Bob & Ruth walked through the Gardens, it was like they were members of the Royal family - I could see people's faces light up and they strolled along hand in hand, and they received many wishes of congratulations. They looked adorable.

Here are some of my favourite shots:
