Being the cool kids in a room full of cool kids takes some effort, but Badcrop managed it with their dope set in Cassette Nine for the VICE Cassette Day party in Auckland. VICE Article on them HERE  

Skux Punk for VICE International Cassette Day

Tasked with shooting a punk rock band in a small music venue in the centre of Auckland City I headed out with little to expect but was rewarded with some wonderful creative talent, free beer and above all else, An ironic gift of a cassette mix tape that I couldn't listen to. The venue Cassette … Continue reading Skux Punk for VICE International Cassette Day

She Loves You

I miss gigs as much as anybody does. But specifically, I miss going to gigs in New Zealand, It really felt like a little club of alternative-music lovers. It felt underground and real. Everybody knew each other in some capacity but new-comers were welcomed with open arms. Pictured below are the incredibly sexy and talented … Continue reading She Loves You

Landing in New Zealand

When I first arrived in New Zealand, I hated it. Auckland was raining and cold and the hostel I arrived at felt like it had been built from old wooden pallets. Draughty, no heating and sharing a room with four others on what felt like a prisoners mattress, I was miserable after having spent 2 … Continue reading Landing in New Zealand

Trying to Remember the Auckland Races

The Auckland races is the Grand National for New Zealand, minus the inevitable horse deaths thanks to the lack of hedge jumping. As is the case with all horse racing events, it's an excuse for women to wear stupid hats and for everybody to get drunk in the sun. Not to mention a way to … Continue reading Trying to Remember the Auckland Races

I Was Let Down by the K’Road Circus

In December last year I was informed K'Road was planning a street circus, somebody had told me that it only happens every couple of years so I was stoked, assuming it was something I had only one opportunity of seeing with me leaving Auckland in a few months. I had already stayed in Auckland for … Continue reading I Was Let Down by the K’Road Circus

RBSS X Vice was 🔥🔥🔥

Vice and Red Bull Teamed up to put on one hell of a show, with free socks as you walk in, plenty of Red Bull Vodkas to drink and LE1F headlining the night, everything was set for a LIT night. I was tasked with getting a few shots of people holding socks which I figured … Continue reading RBSS X Vice was 🔥🔥🔥

I went to the Auckland Weed Walk and Smoked a Tulip

Every person with no vested interest in putting petty criminals into a dysfunctional system agrees that weed should be legalised. Fortunately there are pro-active people out there putting up a fight on behalf of those who simply wont. I was notified via Facebook of a march down Queen Street (the main shopping street in Auckland) … Continue reading I went to the Auckland Weed Walk and Smoked a Tulip

I Blagged Entry to the Heaviest Band I’ve Ever Seen

My friend Rohanna had been pestering me for months to buy a ticket to the Meshuggah/Thy Art is Murder gig and I kept telling her that I was definitely going to buy one (I didn't). The day of the gig finally came and I figured I actually wanted to go. I messaged a couple of … Continue reading I Blagged Entry to the Heaviest Band I’ve Ever Seen

Auckland Pride Parade was Lit

I expected Auckland pride to be underwhelming, Auckland Pride failed to disappoint.                                       Photos taken on K'Road, Ponsonby Road and Family Bar.  

I Shot an Underage Festival for Vice

Shooting bands is one of my favourite past times. Drinking cheap beer at an inflated cost is part and parcel of watching your favourite musicians sweat it out within jizzing distance. New Zealand is pretty strict with underage drinking, so harsh that kids can't watch their favourite artists in their natural habitat - dark, dank, … Continue reading I Shot an Underage Festival for Vice

The $100 Pot Brownie

Buying $100 worth of weed and sticking it in a brownie is both ambitious and downright sensible. Fortunately I live with a Colombian couple who both have worked in the food industry and know how to whip up some good eats, so when my flatmate suggested buying a ton of weed and sticking it in … Continue reading The $100 Pot Brownie

Maori Clubs are Underrated

Most people go to clubs for one of three reasons: To get laid, to get drunk, or to innocently dance. I tend to only be interested in observing the chaos of these three interest groups collide.  I recently ended up in a Maori club on K'road (Le Box) and couldn't have been happier. Everybody changes … Continue reading Maori Clubs are Underrated

I Joined the Media Circle-Jerk that is the Pacific Island Music Awards

A writer friend of mine invited me to join her at the Pacific Music awards show, what I didn't realise is that she wanted me to shoot for Remix magazine so instead of being a co-operative freelancer I captured the absurdity that was a media-circus, I still took shots that she asked of me but … Continue reading I Joined the Media Circle-Jerk that is the Pacific Island Music Awards
