Barwon Heads hairdresser Lisa Stehn with her vintage caravan she takes to rockabilly festivals styling hair and makeup for festival goers.

What a rockin' idea.

Birdcage fashion

Spent today inside the Birdcage at Oaks Day, Flemington Races.

Ashley Hart was the stand out off track. A very elegant lady.


Mad hatters

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop talks with Geoffrey Edelsten and his new fiancee Gabi Grecko inside the Birdcage at Melbourne Cup Day, Flemington.  

I can't imagine what they were talking about.

Mystical ruins

Great to be here in Cambodia where the temperature is above 30 degrees and travel is by tuk tuk.

After four days of working with Cosi on his charity Cows for Cambodia, I finally got a day to tour the famous Angkor ruins.

I was here ten years ago backpacking around Asia with my wife and it's amazing to be back a second time.

Incredible to imagine these ruins at their prime about 900 year ago, surrounded by rice paddies growing food for the kings and soldiers.

As with most of the world's great civilisations it all fell apart because they tried to get too big, exhausted their resources and were eventually invaded by stronger neighbours.

Tuk tuk anyone?

Arrived in Cambodia two days ago for a magazine assignment.

Writing about Cows for Cambodia, an amazing charity set up by South Australian television identity Andrew "Cosi" Costello.

Using his profile as host of the Channel 9 television show South Aussie with Cosi, Cosi is using money raised from South Australians to change the lives of dozens of poor Cambodian farming families.

Shot this picture on a dirt road about 20km from Siem Reap in the country's north west, not far from the famous ruins of Angkor Wat.

Onboard are our tuk tuk driver Buan, our guide Jet, and charity workers Thomo, Cosi and Bomber.

They're a happy team at Hawthorn

Was lucky enough to get tickets to the AFL grand final today.

The only problem was I had to work.

But I suppose there are worse ways to earn a buck then plonking yourself in the middle of the Hawks cheer squad and photographing the colour and excitement of the grand final for the Herald Sun.

The Hawks were unstoppable.

Farming for Christmas

Posted on Tuesday, 16 September 2014 02:08 by .

Alessandro Costa keeps an eye on the 35,000 trees at his Treerite Christmas tree farm at Napoleons as he gears up for the busy season.

Travelled to Ballarat today to shoot a photo for the Herald Sun and came accros Alessandro at his Christmas tree farm.

Every one of those 35,000 trees needs to be shaped every year to ensure they are perfect when harvested.

Alessandro also gives each tree an annual blast with a high-pressure air cleaner to remove spiders that might have made their home inside.

Off and racing, almost
