My purpose in life is to capture the beauty that surrounds me – the way I see it, and then share that with the world. I'm the happiest when I'm creating art – weather it's in my studio or outdoors here on the east coast of Australia. I love working with other artists (models who have the same creative energy that I do) especially when we create synergy during the photo shoot, where our combined creative energy becomes something much more than I could create on my own. This synergy happened on my 'dust' photo shoots with Lana. She is a talented dancer and jumped around in my studio for a number of hours, throwing baking flour into the air, and we created some of the most amazing images I have ever been involved with. I'm currently working on another outdoors series of fine art nude images called slow. Go to my website and signup for news and behind the scenes look at some of these photo shoots. Please comment if you like. Brent

Dust Dancer - behind the scenes video

Published June 12th, 2012

Finally I have finished the video and tutorial that so many have asked me for.

Released at last – behind the scenes look at my award winning "dust" fine art dance images.

Step into my studio and discover – what goes into an actual fine-art photo shoot?

These dust images are by far my most successful prints, when it comes to winning awards. I have won awards EVERY SINGLE time I have entered one of these images, and like some of you know, winning awards is not an easy task.
