Top folio shots 2014: July and August

July and August were busy editing months this year, so to catch up on some belated posts I’ve rolled some highlights together. There were a few stand out shots over this period, as there always are, so here is some Southern Hemisphere eye candy (with a slice of the tropics). Wendy Brandon, Wellington I am thrilled to introduce

Top folio shots 2014: June

We are currently dealing with horrible winter storms here in NZ. At our home in Titirangi we’ve had numerous power cuts, and some of our windows and doors are boarded up. Oh, and the family dog is sick. There is more but I won’t bore you. Suffice to say it might explain my slightly jaded (and possibly green-eyed) post last

Top folio shot 2014: May

Zoe’s shots intrigue me. She has a way of sorting the higgledy-pigglediness of urban sprawl, jumbles of roads, clusters of buildings, and even everyday objects, into an orderly pattern.

Last month I asked a creative from the ad industry to pick his top shot from all the folio edits I had done each month in 2013. I first met Mick Bakos when he was the CD of DDB Singapore and we have crossed paths many times over the years-more recently at TBWA in Melbourne. As

Top folio shots 2013: July-December

Last year saw some fabulous work cross my desk. Folio edits seem to absorb much of my time at the beginning and end of the year, and this year is no different. Unfortunately there wasn’t anything too inspiring in August last year, so I gave it a miss. Equally, there has been so much great
