When my rad photographer friend Janneke Storm asked me to style a shoot using wedding dresses you can imagine I was a little confused.
But it all made so much sense when she flicked through pics of this green hair beauty from Sydney Madeline & a link to Grace loves Lace a QLD based formal wear label serving up some of the most beautiful lace creations I’ve ever seen.
This shoot quickly turned into one of my favourite projects yet.
Thank you for putting us in you Moustache Magazine!

While in LA for our shotgun Vegas wedding tour we collaborated with unbelievably talented photographer Yoshino to create this little editorial featured on Livefast Magazine.
True to his signature style these Yoshino images are a fusion between high fashion and fine art.

Once you enter the addictive world of photography it’s not long before your obsession with Purienne kicks in.
Here he takes sexy to the next level for rad LA brand For Love & Lemons.
This beach is unprotected & seemingly always cyclonic. Those who dare swim or surf there (locals only) are at the mercy of so many natural elements that would deter any tourist.
If it’s incredible beauty allows you to see past its fury, then you also should know legend has it down as one of 3 points on the Sunshine coast where witches gather to cast spells on all of its residents….haha. True or not this place in the PM is eerie as shit.

We have watched this business go from strength to strength & the director Sarah deserves all of the success……She’s freaken rad & I think she might actually be our biggest supporter.
It was such a pleasure to style their latest look book WHATEVER FOREVER.
Im still not sure if they are good DJ’s but fuck they are sexy!
Our friends happen to be a rad tattoo artist & writer of my favourite décor blog HER TALL TALES.
& why not get a few tatts while we’re here.
Good photos by JANNEKE STORM. Shit ones by the rest of us.
Moni Haworth aka Johnnys Bird is fucking living legend! She has a way of documenting life in the most uncompromising raw & honest way. A journalistic approach capturing love and people as they truly are…a day in their life. Scrolling through her work is like watching mini movies, each series with a clear start & end. Ains and I have been so inspired by her photo’s. You can easily get lost on her blog for hours. Hope to one day meet this amazing women!
Check out her photos and see for yourself www.johnnysbird.com Insta @monibelle
THE ACCOUNT NAME SUMS IT UP PERFECTLY. THESE PHOTOS EVOKE SO MANY MIXED FEELINGS. AT FIRST GLANCE THE PHOTO IS SUPER SEXY. THEN BEFORE YOU KNOW IT YOU ARE QUESTIONING EVERYTHING ABOUT YOURSELF….AM I ATTRACTED TO GIRLS? WOULD I LIKE TO HAVE A THREESOME WITH ELMO? AM I INTO BESTIALITY? AM I EVEN REALLY A VEGETARIAN? BEFORE YOU JUDGE ME SEE FOR YOUR SELF.
IN HIS OWN WORDS…… I like for my photos to represent a world of anonymity, where inhibitions and meaningless vanity do not exist. My work is the best example of being completely free and hypersexual. I wanted to try to capture the people around me in a carefree and sexual way that didn’t seem so forced or extremely polished. I was tired of seeing how boys and girls in LA were shot in such a glossy and clean way that didn’t seem real to me. LA nightlife can be extremely dirty and raunchy. I felt like there wasn’t anyone documenting a young and relevant way of being with dark undertones.
LA BASED BEACH RIOT HAVE JUST RELEASED THEIR SPRING / SUMMER 14 COLLECTION & INSPIRED BY THIS QLD HEAT WAVE WE ARE MELTING THROUGH AT THE MOMENT WE DECIDED TO THROW TOGETHER A SHOOT SHOWCASING SOME OF OUR FAVE STYLES.
Sadly we didn’t meet Derek Perlman (aka Fucktard) until our last night in LA. We had been insta friends for a while but that night took our relationship to the next level. It was love at first sight. He took us straight up to his huge loft style warehouse apartment and offered us pizza and beer. He took a few snaps of us at his place before he drove us around on a grand tour of Downtown LA’s seedy under belly. He warned us that we be prepared to be robbed. We were in gangland meets homeless land. This is Derek’s play ground. He takes a companionate journalistic approach to capturing people and nightlife. He also hates cops with a vengeance. The cops keep roughing up the homeless people in LA and dumping them in a four block area called skid row. We capped the night off with a visit to a bar designed by Tim Burton. Shit like this only happens in LA! Can’t wait to be together again. Here are some photos from our amazing adventure.

Jason Lee Parry was the first photographer that really opened my eyes to the wonderful world of photos & so it seems obvi to write about him.
It was around the time that we started our agency instagram & I was desperately looking for rad imagery to post.
I think I must have posted almost all of Jasons work by now.
Here are some of my fave pics from his massive collection.
