Promo Shoot: Sydney Singer/Songwriter Lily Fisher

Lily Fisher Promo Photo Shoot

We recently had the pleasure of conducting a photo shoot with Sydney singer and songwriter Lily Fisher. We travelled up to the scenic national parks of Sydney’s north shore area to help reflect some of the environmental themes in Lily’s lyrics.

CLICK HERE or on the image above to see six images from the shoot. Some images were taken using only natural light, while others used a few small flash guns to provide the main and rim lighting. Photography enthusiasts can check out the lighting and EXIF info on each image by visiting our Flickr page.

We’d definitely recommend checking out Lily’s music. You can keep up to date with her gig dates and listen to her recorded music by CLICKING HERE. Or, you can scroll down to view a video of her live performance.

CD Review: Filter – ‘The Trouble With Angels’ for Lifemusicmedia.com


28 Sep

Lifemusicmedia.com have just published my review of Filter’s latest album, ‘The Trouble With Angels’. It’s Filter’s fifth studio album since the group formed in 1995 and is definitely one of their stronger releases. Read the excerpt below and CLICK HERE to read the review in full at Lifemusicmedia.com:

…At least in this country, Filter has never attained the level of success that they deserve. Besides a couple of chart-bothering flirtations with tracks like ‘Hey Man, Nice Shot’ and ‘Take a Picture’ way back in the mid-to-late 1990s, Richard Patrick and company have travelled unfairly under the radar. Hopefully the Cleveland, Ohio group’s luck will change with the release of their fifth studio album, ‘The Trouble with Angels’…

Blind Faith: Turkish Singer Sets New Blind Land Speed Record


13 Apr

We recently brought you a story of Hein Wagner, a blind South African man who successfully completed a road circuit with the aid of a co-pilot helping to navigate. Wagner had also previously become the world’s fastest blind person by travelling at over 200mph with the aid of a co-pilot.

Well, it seems Hein’s remarkable bravery has inspired others to give it a red hot go, too. We recently heard of a Turkish pop singer named Metin Senturk setting a new unassisted world record for the fastest speed set by a blind person, taking his Ferrari 430 to a top speed of 292.89km/h (182mph).

With his helper halping to navigate from a support vehicle driving behind, Senturk broke the record on an airstrip in Eastern Turkey. Senturk was quoted as saying that the run, “was really hard, like a dance with death”, in true dramatic pop fashion. According to a news story on Autoblog, the record was previously held by a British banker who’s best was 284km/h. Amazing.
