Gigs Photographed South of the river vs. North - 2002 to 2013
A by-the-numbers history of some of the photos I have taken with some previously unseen shots.

The photos on this were taken by me at various gigs and events around Melbourne.

The ones after Christmas 2003 were taken with a Canon Powershot A80 and the ones in 2003 with a camera I borrowed from work. A couple of the earlier sets of photos are scans from ordinary photos.

For 2006 and 2007 I used a Nikon D50 until I wore it out and ended up replacing it with a D40 (extended warranties are worth it.) Close-up shots with the Nikon 50mm f1.8D lens which I am probably not going to use with the D40 now as I don't need it as much.

Please Contact me if you wish to use any of these photos or want a copy of the originals on CD.

Selected photos are also available on Gekko Images to purchase for use in print or the web. Cards, prints, posters, etc are available on Red Bubble.
