Apartment Feature/ Real Living Magazine
Having moved to my new apartment somewhat recently, My friend and brilliant Photographer Hallie Burton (who shot my last apartment for "Inside Out" Magazine a few years ago) and I decided to shoot my current one, It's always amazing how a new space breathes new life to the things you own. When I moved I put a lot of "work props" into storage so this place although much smaller was not by nature as packed with things as my last one.
Now I would never claim to be a minimalist, I like a clean feel, but I do love stuff, I would not be in this profession otherwise, right!? When I move in, I always pretty much have the place set up within a week, I will stay up till 3 am if I need to, to get it done. A new space does excite me as it is a fresh canvas in which to start my exploration of how to piece everything together, some people do crosswords, my puzzles are more 3-D! : )
We shot the story and it was picked up by "Real Living Magazine" An Australian publication edited by Deborah Bibby, who has supported Hallie's and my collaborations for some time, Thanks Deb and the team! The layout is really fun and I love the illustration that helps describe the space, Check out Deb's blog on http://reallivingmagazine.blogspot.com, It's Style Director, Jason Grant also has a great one at www.mrjasongrant.com and of course Natalie Walton, The magazine's Deputy Editor has http://dailyimprint.blogspot.com, on which has and interview with yours truly! Check them out!
Hope you like the story, Now I just have to move or do a re-furb to guarantee the next, It will happen!
