Alexey & Bono

I met Alex Roth on the set of the MTV job, and knew straight away that I wanted to work with him again.
The idea was inspired by the Didymus character from the cult movie "The Labyrinth". Through the help of the stylist Cherith Crozier, we spent weeks revising the direction and wardrobe until finally we settled and had some custom made clothes designed and sent from the UK.

The great Dane was called Bono and was a true professional on set, thanks to Julie from Stordansk Danes

Also a big thank you to Michelle Dube for helping with hair and make-up

And finally a huge thank you for the amazing post and grade put on this image which really brought it to life. If you ever need any retouching, please get in touch with a new and exciting group in Sydney called Limehouse Creative

Commonwealth Bank

In a giant collaboration that took us to 5 states of Australia, the creative team gurus from Goodby Silverstein, the Commonwealth Bank Agribusiness team, and our production department visited some of the most incredible rural properties imaginable. We were able to have the rare opportunity to intimately experience and capture the families in their lives on their remote properties. It was 2 weeks of sharing tall stories, mustering, small pubs, giant steaks, 4.30am mornings, 4 wheel driving, riding atop enormous machines, shearing, driving, families and farmhands, and fields the size of Tasmania! Thousands of images later - these are the final results for the campaign that perfectly captures Agribusiness and the people that are the business.
