Attached to the back of a fire truck shooting a stripper while yelling at the Sydney Harbour Bridge to the sound of Beyonce Single Ladies .... It was a Friday night. Sydney Event Photography is like a hidden art.
While most standard events such as weddings, birthdays, Christmas, Melbourne Cup exhibitions and parties are the bread and butter for any professional photographer, his photographs weird and wacky that really spices up a shoot.
The trick is to find these events to keep your ear to the ground and make sure that the right people know you're a great photographer with the right attitude and understand what the client after years of shooting.
So now back to the stripper on the fire. Strangely it was a case of being in the right place at the right time. Way back in 2007, some fool named John V had in mind that a fire truck in retirement would be a big party bus. This labor of love and madness led to the burning through a lot of bureaucracy to obtain all permits and licenses required to deprive an old fire engine from the inside, put it into a dance floor, disco ball, and system ear bleeding surrounded by a white leather sofa-U. Make the first part NSW brigade. From the outside it looks actually quite legitimate with the only difference is the insignia of two dancing shadows and the absence of light rotating. You could hear this coming a mile with the siren and will beat the sound system if you want to be noticed in Sydney, then this is one to do it. This leaves the Hummers, Crysler 300 and bus sides in its wake inspires fear.
On the set, in downtown Sydney, took a couple of guys from a label and sent to launch its exclusive recording.
