Collaborating with new people that you’ve never met before can often be a very rewarding and surprising experience. For the past three years I have been randomly connecting with people in all different manner of art forms or creative expressions to sit down with them over a coffee and then to document their day to day existence.

The most recent collaboration was with tonal realist portrait artist Avril Thomas who to be completely honest I had no idea of at the time so when we spoke on the phone I didn’t register the surprise in her voice when I suggested taking her portrait in her studio at Hope Forest in Meadows. It’s quite comical now that I think about it but at the time I felt a strong reverence in preserving the light and ambience of the room all the while capturing a natural unposed portrait.

After a very freshly made coffee Avril then took me on a complete guided tour of Magpie Springs a multi faceted establishment boasting a winery, coffee lab, livestock, rock climbing wall and the fully functioning on site art gallery. I was really impressed with the amount of diversity within the property and the love that had clearly been poured into every element.
