The 365 Project

As I mentioned in my previous post, I've decided to tackle the beast that is The 365 Project. A photo a day for a year.  I think it's traditionally self portraits but with two boys under three that task feels like it would be near impossible for me!  So my version will be a visual journal of christmas day 2010 to christmas day 2011.. guess it should be The 366 Project then.  Anyhoo, head on over to The 365 Project page to see my photographs.  I aim to upload new work every week or two, wish me luck lego kitty!!

Profile Picture does it again!

I entered the Edge Photo Imaging awards and they put together a reel of all the entries, lucky for me Profile Picture is the first image!  You can view the winners and the show reel on the Australian School of Wedding and Portrait Photography website.

I stumbled upon Rune's work via the 500 Photographers blog, and I think it's just beautiful.. I love how the installations and photographs have been executed.
