Tattoo Plus You, A Photo Story of Body Ink

Tattoo Plus You, A Photo Story of Body Ink is a photographic project that explores tattoos and why people get them. I am passionate about photographing people and art, so the chance to photograph two of my favourite inspirations was irresistible. But that’s only the half of it. The other half is that I found a lot of tattoo photography to be overly sensational and despite seeing some great art, I rarely got the story about the person.  Tattoo Plus […]

Kymme shares her story in Tattoo + You, A Photo Story of Body Ink

Kymme shares her story of why she got a tattoo

Kymme shares her story of why she got a tattoo in Tattoo + You, A Photo Story of Body Ink.  In her words:  They say that every tattoo has a story; here’s mine. I never thought I would ever get a tattoo. I thought it would be a hindrance to being a performer playing different roles.  I was diagnosed with oral cancer at the base of the tongue and my whole world turned upside down. This would be devastating to […]

Sharing Tattoo Stories, Elena

Tattoo + You, A Photo Story of Body Ink features Elena.  In her words:  “I was immediately interested when the opportunity arose to share my tattoo stories in this project. When I was a kid, I saw the most tattooed people on earth in the Guiness World Records and Kat Vod on Miami Ink—to get my own tattoos became my goal.  I was raised in a semi-conservative household where tattoos were frowned upon. When I expressed my desire to get […]

Tristan, Tattoo + You, A Photo Story of Body Ink

Tattoo + You, A Photo Story of Body Ink features Tristan.  In Tristan’s words:  “In my opinion tattoos have always been a way to tell a story. They can be images that a person wants to project about one’s self, or a way to remember and share a part of one’s life. The back piece began as a concept when I was 20. It started as a way for me to reconnect with my earth-based Celtic and Viking heritage, but […]

Iceberg, Antarctica

Around an Iceberg near Elephant Island, Antarctica

Here’s a short video of a tour around an iceberg that I shot off Elephant Island in Antarctica several years back. This location was made famous as Shackleton’s emergency camp after their ship, Endurance, was shipwrecked in 1916. The story of their expedition is one of the greatest stories of polar survival. Part of the crew was marooned at this location for four and a half months.  Frank Hurley’s photographs of this expedition are spectacular.  On the map, you can see […]

Leopard Seal

Leopard Seal, Antarctica

Leopard Seal, Master of the Southern Ocean Here’s a short video of a Leopard Seal that I filmed several years ago. These seals are number 2 in the top predator rank; their only natural predator in the Southern Ocean is the much larger Orca.  They are “true seals” and do not have external ears. Instead, they have an opening on the side of their head that connects to the ear canal. Their muscular bodies, massive head and jaws make them […]
