1000 Photos, 300 Bands, 15 years, 10 Books
For 15 years I've been photographing and filming live music in New Zealand and overseas. In 2003 I started my own magazine, A Low Hum, partly as a vehicle to showcase my work, a magazine which has warped into the weird beast A Low Hum is now. I've been lucky enough to work with some amazing bands over the years and have watched, firsthand, a movement take place
A Movement is the name I've given to my work over the period 1999-2014. In March 2015 I'll be releasing a set of ten photographic art books and a film.I have created a book club where members pay weekly and receive a new book in the mail fortnightly and receive a sweet case at the end to house them all.

The books are not released publicly until the book club has finished, and members of the book club will get the books less than the retail price (effectively getting two of the books free).
While the books present some my work over the past 15 years, the film focuses specifically on the A Low Hum tours of 2005-2007, a series of tours where many of the bands have gone onto gain recognition nationally and overseas, bands include Connan and the Mockasins, So So Modern, Die! Die! Die!, The Ruby Suns, Surf City, Disasteradio, Cut Off Your Hands, Jakob, Over the Atlantic, Lawrence Arabia (The Reduction Agents) and more.
