About Me


Welcome to my little patch of Model Mayhem. Come on in & take a peek at the visual delights waiting to tantalise your optic nerves.  
Hi there, my name's Pete. I'm an experienced professional photographer & filmmaker passionately inspired by the beauty of the female form. The delicious play of light & shadow produced by the shapes & curves of the female body has always held a deep fascination. I'm obsessed with colour, consumed by lighting & shadows, infatuated with intriguing shoot locations. I specialise in shooting beautiful, whimsical, artistic nudes, edgy, alternative, grunge, glamour, bikini, fitness & couple concepts. I thrive on the collaboration between model & photographer working together to create images of exceptional beauty & appeal. If you have the desire to update your portfolio with my unique brand of imagery or wish to say something different with your photographs & possess the ablity to collaborate in producing artistic, sensual, tasteful, sexy, erotic, playful, nude imagery please contact me. I'm respectful, like to have a laugh, lotsa fun & very easy to work with.  
**MODELS PLEASE NOTE: I have no interest in shooting tasteless, talentless, vulgar, degrading, adult / explicit / pornographic / skanky / open leg / spread shots that focus on female genitalia. If you want that type of cheesy porn, there's many 'togs,' GWCs & PWCs on Model Mayhem who will be more than willing to shoot that shit for you. But not this artist.  

I have a quirky, organic, unusual visual style that is not easily categorised. Some fans have even called it unique. I enjoy collaborating with models, MUAs, bodypainters, hair stylists etc. to create beautiful & provocative imagery. The sublime beauty of the female form inspires me to create evocative images that celebrate & enhance the beauty & sensuality of women in a creative, sexy, erotic, tasteful way.  
A female model I recently worked with sent these words to me: 'Just wanted to thank you again for the amazing work that you do and giving me the best images! Every moment spent with you was breath-taking and every photograph you take is inspirational and speaks a thousand words.'  
I also enjoy shooting fitness concepts. I live a healthy lifestyle & maintain a high level of fitness. I run 6km most days. I've been a producer on 2 seasons of The Biggest Loser. It's true: you are what you eat.  

The art of capturing beauty is a challenge I enjoy. I like to create unusual imagery. I strive to give models something a little different. I'm always searching for captivating faces, beautiful figures & unique, dynamic concepts. I'm a relaxed, fun guy, very laid-back & easy to work with; I like to have a laugh. I'm happy to shoot with inexperienced models. Please leave your boyfriend / mum / escort / chaperone / bodyguard at home. If you wouldn't bring them to work, don't bring them to our shoot. It would be distracting to everyone involved in the shoot. I encourage you to contact anyone I've ever worked with to verify my professionalism.

My 'normal' photography website:  
Although I mostly shoot for paid work, I am open to limited TFCD for select models & themes that will challenge my skills & enhance my portfolio. If you'd like to model for me, please PM me with your theme or ideas & sample images & we'll go from there. I like models to add their own ideas & poses. I thrive on synergy & energy. Let's have FUN! *TFCD models, MUAs, bodypainters etc. receive a disk full of high resolution images within a few weeks of the shoot. If it's my theme, I provide snacks & drinks & transportation if possible. Unlike some photographers, I am NOT a friend-whore. If you want to 'friend' me, please introduce yourself first and have the intention of working with me.  
I've carried a camera around with me since I was a teenager. I love being behind my camera & a beautiful body framed by my lens. I call it 'being in the zone' - the images unfold as both model and photographer resonate on the same frequency. It's an amazing energising feeling when it happens, artistic ecstasy. I crave it. My photographs have been exhibited, published, won awards & competitions but I hate to blow my own trumpet. Some of my shots were chosen as part of a collection that was archived in a North Sydney time capsule; it will be opened in 100 years & the photographs exhibited to show what life was like a century earlier.  
IMPORTANT UPDATE: I've shot enough 'normal/standard' beauty/bikini shots. I want to get down & dirty. No, I DON'T mean graphic, explicit spread shots. I mean dynamic, energetic, alternative, grunge beauty & erotica. Girls fighting, destroying shit, getting ugly, getting sexy with a 'who gives a flying fuck?' attitude. Photo sequences with images that TELL A STORY & SAY something other than 'Look at me, aren't I hot?' Images that will shock/inspire viewers & make them gasp 'WTF? How did he get THAT shot?' Female models who like or want to get naked, dirty & dangerous give me a shout. Let's ROCK!  
You’ve got to push yourself harder. You’ve got to start looking for pictures nobody else could take. You’ve got to take the tools you have and probe deeper – William Albert Allard  
The creative artist lives in a state of divine discontent - Martha Graham, American choreographer  
Which of my photographs is my favourite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow – Imogen Cunningham  
I'm based on the picturesque Sunshine Coast. If you are willing to go a few extra miles, there is an amazing range of gorgeous locations we can use.  
Beauty can be seen in all things. Seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph – Matt Hardy  
My shoots are always fun. I like to have a laugh. I make sure my models enjoy themselves. I go the extra mile to capture superlative imagery. I don't have a studio (yet). I prefer natural light & interesting locations, indoor & outdoor.  
You don’t take a photograph, you make it - Ansel Adams  
If you're a photogenic female aged between 17 and 30 with a nice figure, NOW is the time to preserve your naked beauty in digital form before age takes its toll. If you would like to own FREE high quality, creative, crazy, grungey or just plain fun images, do not hesitate to reach out to me.  
It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are – Paul Caponigro  
A great photograph is a full expression of what one feels about what is being photographed in the deepest sense, and is, thereby, a true expression of what one feels about life in its entirety - Ansel Adams  
Does not the very word 'creative' mean to build, to initiate, to give out, to act - rather than to be acted upon, to be subjective? Living photography is positive in its approach, it sings a song of life - not death - Berenice Abbott  
The photographer perceives the world as a visual challenge, constantly composing images that sometimes transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. In doing so, the photographer often reveals worlds hitherto invisible. Images that document events, tell stories and evoke emotions by freezing a fleeting moment, preserving a scene or condensing the passage of time into a single frame.

Unlike painting, writing, sculpture or music, where the artist can recreate the subject or emotion from memory, photography and filmmaking are unique mediums that require the creator to be physically present at the instant of creation, either as passive observer or interactive participant.

Therefore, photography also creates a unique record of the photographer's life, experiences and travels - Peter Enright
She's a model and she's looking good
I'd like to take her home that's understood
She plays hard to get, she smiles from time to time
It only takes a camera to change her mind

She's going out to nightclubs drinking just champagne
And she has been checking nearly all the men
She's playing her game and you can hear them say
She's looking good, for beauty we will pay

She's posing for consumer products now and then
For every camera she gives the best she can
I saw her on the cover of a magazine
Now she's a big success I want to meet her again

'The Model' - Kraftwerk
A messed up childhood is the greatest gift any creative artist could have.  
It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer. You need less imagination to be a painter because you can invent things. But in photography everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the extraordinary - David Bailey  
Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography - George Eastman  
‘Peter has a unique way of seeing the world, a vivid imagination, a distinctive gift for breathtaking visuals and an amazing attention to detail.’

William Hall, Journalist, Author, Past President of the Film Critic’s Circle, London
Most things in life are moments of pleasure and a lifetime of embarrassment; photography is a moment of embarrassment and a lifetime of pleasure - Tony Benn  
Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything - Aaron Siskind  
Now there's a girl about town
I'd like to know
I'd like to slip away with you
And if you said you love me
How could I mind?
Is there another side to everything you do?
Take in the country air, you'll never win
Gentlemen take polaroids
They fall in love, they fall in love...

'Gentlemen Take Polaroids' - Japan
Photography suits the temper of this age - of active bodies and minds. It is a perfect medium for one whose mind is teeming with ideas, imagery, for a prolific worker who would be slowed down by painting or sculpting, for one who sees quickly and acts decisively, accurately - Edward Weston
