2009 Wrap-up! and Plans for 2010

Here's a mosaic of my best 16 portraits from 2009 - a tase of things to come via my Big Plans for 2010.

The creative agenda is for 2010 to be a year of portraits.

So hear ye, hear ye, friends, Romans, Country/Citypeople: step right up, get your portraits while they're hot! (and for a limited time, free). I've lined up a bunch of friends to model, (don't be shy, there's still room for more!!) and a loose collection of keen and like-minded photographers, and we're ready to start rolling early in the new year.

So Watch This Space...!

Afro Moses Concert Sydney Opera House

The multi-talented Brad Robinson of FIG also moonlights as the guitarist in the Afro-Moses Band. They recently had a series of gigs at the Sydney Opera House, playing back-to-back concerts to large groups of two, three, four and five - year-olds in a kind of African version of The Wiggles. They invited me to make pictures during some of their concerts. I lacked a really fast lens, so some shots are a bit fuzzier than I'd like, but the energy of the performers more than made up for it.

The Afro-Moses band members include:

Afro Moses Baidoo singer/ leader
Sibo Bangoura on percussion/ djembe drum
Wendy Anggerani on keyboards
Aicha Keita dancer Rebecca Bryen dancer/ singer
Victor “Worldwide” on drums
Junichi Shiomi on bass
Bradford Robinson guitar.
