Sometimes we get lucky. A week before flying to the USA, we found out about a free event in Brooklyn about the Sony A7 lineup hosted by Focus with Dani Diamond and Tony Gale talking about some stuff. We signed up for it straight away! We are huge fans of Dani’s work and we were very happy to be able to attend and meet him. Tony was a good surprise, very nice guy and super talented photographer.
This year we decided to go to the USA for our holidays, and that was settled. Just a few days before we went out booking our flights, we got invited to photograph my friend’s wedding in Tasmania, so we tweaked our plans a little bit and managed to include a trip to Tasmania before flying to America!
In September 2009 I arrived in Australia, a couple of days before the Brisbane Riverfire. The Riverfire used to open the Brisbane Festival, the annual arts festival organised by Brisbane City Council and Queensland Government and it happens every year in September. Now the Riverfire ends the Festival.
