labporn
I can’t say how I stumbled upon this, but I did. The photographer seducing the model is a porn cliche so wasn’t I surprised to see the humble photo lab worker having a win. It’s old but it seems to have been shot in an actual, functioning photo lab. There’s no way this would stay on Flickr or Facebook so I uploaded it to my own website. Please add any cease and desists to my tab. If you would like to watch the original film, you can do so here.

The Creeps: The Movie
As we were leaving my friends The Creeps’ house the other day the light was low and I thought I would take a photo of them, I knew I had one shot left but someone else had used it, so I had no choice but to fire off a whole roll on these weirdos. Click here to see the animated version.

A website lets you make a video from your best Instagram photos from the year, I don’t know of one that makes one from Flickr so I had to make it myself. Here are my top 10 photo of 2014.

CCP SALON
I decided to enter a photo into this years Salon at the Centre for Creative Photography, it’s the first real exhibition/contest thing I have put something into apart from Unsensored and the MSM’s things at the BIFB. I think I went to one of these quite a few years ago in a building on Gertrude St, it might have been a Kodak Salon back then. It’s on from the 14th of November until the 13th of December.

Here’s the photo that Kris took of me after we recorded an episode of Photographer Stories the other night. I wouldn’t recommend looking at it at 100%, it’s a little scary.

Help me pick what photo to exhibit

Unsensored14 is approaching and I can’t decide what image or images to exhibit. I have narrowed it down to 6. Vote on Flickr or tweet me your suggestion at @fotodudenz. I may even be able to do two Xpan shots.

Hi. Hey look at that! A blog post without words! So I’ve had this idea for a project in the back of mind for a few years now and I finally got around to starting it. It’s called Photographer Stories and it’s a podcast and each episode I will have a little chat with a photographer/photo taker/photo maker/someone in the photographic industry that I know, record it and put it on the internet. My biggest obstacle has been myself, I hate the sound of my own voice, like really afraid of it, I don’t even like how I sound when someone else reads what I have written. So then I realised I am looking at the cure for this right in the face, I make myself listen to my own voice and TA-DA! I am cured. So last Thursday I drove out to Malmsbury and had a little chat with my friend Rhys, recorded it and put it on the internet. Here it is.

Look Right

Yes more nostalgia. When I was in Sydney in 2005 I took a photo of a pedestrian crossing in The Rocks and it became not only one of my most popular photos, it has earned me a bit of pocket money as well. So left is the crossing as it is today and right 2005.

The Great Wave 2014

When I was in Sydney in 2005 I took a photo of a fantastic street art version of Hokusai’s The Great Wave, I was hopeful that it would still be there but no, some fuckwit with 4 litres of shitty grey paint put an end to it.

In February 2014 Ambré and I were invited to a friend’s wedding in Rotorua, New Zealand. This gave me the perfect opportunity to sneak in a road trip around a previously, mostly unexplored part of New Zealand, known to the locals as The North Island.

Over 2 weeks we travelled from Auckland to Rotorua, Rotorua to Te Kaha, To Kaha to Gisborne, Gisborne to Napier, Napier to Wanganui and from Wanganui to Wellington.

I shot 16 rolls on the Mamiya 7, 4 rolls in the Xpan and 3 rolls with the Voigtlander.It’s been 3 long years since I made my last book so I thought it was about time I made another.

I thought it would be fun to throw something together from our recent trip to New Zealand. (un)Fortunately there are no smart arse comments but there are 81 awesome photos. There are two sizes available, 8×10 and 11×13. All profits will go towards the “Matthew wants another rangefinder” foundation.
