The Dead Shall Inherit The Earth
I’ve lost track of the amount of Melbourne Zombie Shuffles I have shot, but without fail, it is one of my fave shooting assignments of the year. It’s always a ton of bloody fun and of course, 2012 was no exception.
Melbourne unleashed a glorious Spring day and that ensured that an even greater throng of the undead would be at Carlton Gardens.

Fear Is The Mind Killer
You prepare hard for a photo shoot at any given music venue. No two venues are the same and now that I have been doing the Rock photography for several years, you begin to know the intricacies of each venue and pretty much know what you will expect from the get-go.
Having said that, Melbourne’s Hifi Bar is always a venue I have struggled in. The lighting is the worst you will have to deal with so it is a given, it will be a hard, frustrating shoot almost always. In the rare case the ‘lighting’ guy actually uses the front lights and (shock, horror) lights the stage, it can be a fun venue to shoot in. But those instances seem to be few and far between.
