Indian Motorcycle weekend away
As part of its 2017 marketing campaign, Indian Motorcycle put together a generous offer for prospective customers - if you were seriously interested in buying a motorbike, Indian would give you one to test for the whole weekend, including a stay at a hunter valley resort and dinner at a gourmet restaurant.
The brief give to John was to emphasise the couples aspect of the ride, the comfort of the bike for two and the extra space the bike provided to carry everything you needed for a weekend away.

The mad professor
'Mad Professor', dub legend and reggae producer extraordinaire, Neil Fraser.
In Sydney for a few gigs and remixing projects, John met up at a Surrey hills studio to shoot a range or portraits and video for the Diesel and Dub project.
Generous with his time, he enthralled us with tales from the dub scene and mixed a few tracks while on camera.

Nothing like a catchy headline is there?!
An alternative image from this shoot was published in the Sydney Morning Herald’s ‘Good Living Segment’.
Diesel and Dub, images and music video
On the left is the front cover of the reworked Dead Heart single of the Diesel and Dub album, on the right is a portrait from the music video shoot for the second single on the project, Beds are Burning.
Conceived by Declan Kelly, it is a dub style version of many classic Oils songs, the Album is a fund and awareness raiser for the Indigenous Literary foundation. A way to increase the levels of literacy in Indigenous communities across the nation and make a step toward cracking the generation poverty that still exists in too many places.
Video Production: Cristina Dio from Diaspora.
The image on the right is a portrait from the music video shoot for the second single on the project Beds are Burning. Pat Powell has sung with many of Australias top recording artists of his long career. He can be found rocking out with Melbourne Ska Orchestra. I shot the video as well in the simplest way possible, one light, one man sitting on a stool in smoky downstairs bar.
30 years of firefighting
John shot this portrait of Phil to celebrate the end of his thirty years with Fire and Rescue NSW.
The building is Rivendell House, part of Concord Hospital and featured in The Great Gatsby.
