SHADY MEN IN THIS TOWN

It has been a pleasure to have collaborated with Pretty Shady this summer in Australia. Pretty Shady is an Australian movement whose aim is to stop skin cancer, one summer at a time and I hope our style tips over the past few months have helped keep you guys safe from the sun.

Here’s one last gallery looking back in the archives, highlighting sun smart street style. This one might seem obvious but it’s the simplest. Chase the shade, not the sun. Particularly during the hours of 11am-3pm when the sun’s UV rays are their harshest. Find out more over at the Pretty Shady website.

While it’s summer here in Australia, I’m proud to be collaborating with Pretty Shady, an Australian movement whose aim is to stop skin cancer, one summer at a time.

Over the last couple of months, the weekly galleries have been looking back in the archives, highlighting sun smart street style. This week, we’re looking at caps! The classic hat that manages to work its way back into my wardrobe every few years is great way to keep the sun out of your eyes while also providing protection to your face, with the use of sunscreen. Find out more over at the Pretty Shady website.

While we’re well into summer here in Australia, I’m proud to be collaborating with Pretty Shady, an Australian movement whose aim is to stop skin cancer, one summer at a time.

Over the last couple of months, the weekly galleries have been looking back in the archives, highlighting sun smart street style. This week, we’re looking at layers. With the introduction of lighter, sheer fabrics in menswear, our garments might not being doing their job at protecting us from UVA and UVB radiation. Besides using sunscreen on exposed skin, try wearing layers when sporting thinner fabrics to stay protected. Plus, nobody really needs to see your nipples. Find out more over at the Pretty Shady website.

With summer time finally here in Australia, I’m proud to be collaborating with Pretty Shady, an Australian movement whose aim is to stop skin cancer, one summer at a time.

Over the next couple of months, the weekly galleries will be looking back in the archives, highlighting sun smart street style. This week, we’re looking at covering up your neck! Walking around in the sun, you tend to forget the sun is always following you, possibly burning your neck. A neck scarf, sweater or light summer scarf are easy ways to cover up but still stay cool. Find out more over at the Pretty Shady website.

With summer just around the corner here in Australia, I’m proud to be collaborating with Pretty Shady, an Australian movement whose aim is to stop skin cancer, one summer at a time.

Over the next couple of months, the weekly galleries will be looking back in the archives, highlighting sun smart street style. This week, we’re looking at sunglasses! UV radiation not only damages skin, it also damages eyes, so it is important to protect your eyes with sunglasses. While the style of the sunglasses usually comes first when buying a new pair, the quality of sun protection should be priority. Find out more over at the Pretty Shady website.

I’ve never been a huge fan of the bow tie, or rather of the clip-on variety. Why not just learn how to tie one yourself? So earlier this year, I bit the bullet and attended my brother’s wedding in Canada determined to bare the bow. After countless hours of watching YouTube videos, I finally (almost) nailed it and I cannot express enough the satisfaction I got from it. The fact that it wasn’t perfect added that little bit of character and made it one of a kind, as the gents above demonstrate beautifully.

Ditch the clip-on!

THE WOMEN IN THIS TOWN BOOK

It’s a humbling experience to be releasing my second book this week, especially amongst other photographers and bloggers I admire who are doing the same. The journey in creating this book has given me the opportunity to really find my point of view when it comes to photography and storytelling and I couldn’t be more excited to share it with you.

This book is dedicated to my mom, super woman. Her confidence, humour, unique style and strength are the same qualities I looked for in photographing the women in these towns. Individuals who are expressing themselves through fashion on their own terms, without a care in the world of what others might think.

I hope that at least one photo or story in this book will inspire you to do the same. Women In This Town: New York, Paris, Melbourne, Tokyo, Madrid and London is available to order online now and in all good bookstores worldwide.

Thank you to Hardie Grant Australia + UK and Rizzoli New York for believing in another book and to Olympus Australia for helping me capture these amazing women around the world.

Cheers,

The Italian’s say they are born with taste when it comes to food and fashion – this couldn’t be more true. They have a rich history in fashion and it doesn’t seem to be lost on the younger generations. On my travels through Italy these past few years, it was quite evident that a lot of personal style is based off traditional elements, while still adding a modern touch through quality contemporary pieces.

It wasn’t until a friend of mine asked for my help in styling a pre-seasonal scarf on one of her shop mannequins that I actually had no clue how. I have always loved the look of light scarf draped around the neck with a don’t care attitude but it took me about twenty minutes to get it right, on dummy. Kudos to these men I photographed over the years for getting it right.

BOOTLEGGERS WINE TASTING

After a wine induced collaboration with Sydney based wine start-up Bootleggers, where we profiled how Australian men are expressing their personal style and taste through fashion and wine, we finally got a chance to celebrate. The stylish Men In This Town readers who registered for a chance to attend, got to sip on a 2008 Dal Forno Romano Amarone della Valpolicella, which retails at $549 a bottle. It was worth every bit. Thanks for everyone who came out and for the men featured over the past few weeks.
