I had the opportunity to Document and Photograph a ceremony of a Re-burial of a "Wiradjuri Man" dating back to more then a few or more thousand years. What a way to keep my ancestral blood flowing, a once in a life time opportunity and I am Privileged to have been a part of it. Thanks to Lewis Coe and ceremonial parties/protocols for making it possible. This re-burial is pretty significant in Aboriginal Culture and our connection to the land and spiritual ancestors. Thanks to Lewis Coe for allowing me to up load this powerful image of him. Due to the sensitivity of the day, I am only able to put 1 image up until permission is given by other parties to do so.

Condobolin Debutaunt Ball 2012. A very rewarding shoot and an opportunity to play around with a location and apetures on my camera. The Location was the old Tar Water Tower in Condobolin. When I mention to the parents and the young ladies that's where I wanted to shoot. A look of confusion was seen on each face's. As we gathered for the shoot I straight away they felt at ease and not knowing what I wanted to achieve with the shots. The final results speak for themselves and I am happy with what I got. I wanted to work with my apetures  (AV) on camera and got it right the 1st time. It also helped having great subjects/models to shoot as I have known most of these young ladies most of their lives and it shows in the images. Thanks ladies for letting me be a part of something special. Courtney Escreet, Nadana Clarke, Kadisha Brandy and Latoya Kirby.
