Living in Los Angeles has given me many cool opportunities to work in the Film Industry here, mostly shooting Stills on movie sets for production companies, but also introducing me to some fine actors like Brian Glanney. After working together on a film we became friends and when it was time for him to get new promotional shots he hit me up. Brian wasn’t after the usual actor headshots though, he wanted something more creative, something that could show he range and acting abilities. We decided on a few themes and headed out for a full day of shoots around Los Angeles. Many thanks to Kerrin Jackson for coming along to do Brian’s hair and makeup, and Ellee Jane for jumping into some shots! If you’re looking for some Not-So-Usual headshots, please get in touch.

Last year, when we came back to Los Angeles after a 3 month trip back to New Zealand, we house-sat for some friends who work in the film industry as well. Whilst they were down in Georgia doing makeup and FX for a large TV show, we were enjoying the amazing house they had, and I was mostly enjoying the Air Conditioning and Ice Machine.

When I was younger I used to watch a show called All Together Now that was about this old time rock star, Bobby Rivers played by Jon English, who ends up having no career but twin children that keep trying to pull him in to the 90’s when all he wants to do is stay in the 70’s where the music was good. No, when the music was GREAT! Jump nearly 20 years later and here I am in the Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre being taken back to the 70’s by that self same Mr English, being treated to a musical buffet of 70’s classics and having my god damn socks rocked off by a bunch of over-talented and probably under-age* musicians in The Rock Show! * Well probably not under-age, but half of them were under 20 at least. Cheeky buggers with their multi-talents, makes me sick 😉
