Rock’s photos are on show


Some of my favourite music photography work is currently on display at the Yarra Ranges Regional Museum alongside genuine Australian music photography hero Kane Hibberd‘s work, and accompanying the museum’s exhibit of ‘Rolling Stone: The Covers 1972 – 2010′. Both exhibits are on until July 7th 2013 and you can find all the details on […]

Falls Festival 2012 photos

Photo of Hilltop Hoods at Falls Festival 2012

Well, Falls Festival is done and dusted for another year. A rather epic 4 days of the usual Falls Lorne dry, scalding heat in the sun, freezing cold in the shade, dusty, heavily-trodden paths from campsite main stage and that goddamn hill from Valley stage to Grand Theatre stage but, of course, plenty of good […]

Triple J sure do know how to throw a party. A surprise party! Returning Aussie, Grace, got the surprise of her life when her best pal and triple j Breakfast hosts Alex Dyson & Tom Ballard surprised her with a homecoming party like no other. The party kicked off at Billboard with celebrity music guests […]

A Spring wedding at Lyrebird Falls

Spring wedding photos at Lyrebird Falls

Melissa & John had been together for ten years before tying the knot (or locking the locks together as they chose to do in their ceremony!) in September at Lyrebird Falls reception venue in Melbourne’s Dandenong Ranges. The couple chose to hold their ceremony at the intimate chapel onsite before wandering forest paths for photographs and returning […]

Foals secret show for Myspace

Yannis Philippakis & Jimmy Smith of Foals at Trades Hall, July 2010

My website got hacked a couple of weeks back which is a total pain because they completely trashed the backend of the site and I now have to redo the whole thing. The silver lining is that in trawling my archives to find the content to get it back to the state it was, I’ve […]

Bands at The Forum Theatre

The Forum live music window poster

I have no doubt that much of the Victoria population has the same sentiment as I about Melbourne’s Forum Theatre. It’s the iconic, decadent, old school styled theatre venue that sits on the quieter end of Flinders St. It has hosted thousands of bands, concerts, artists and comedians over the years and for anyone who […]

A Spring wedding in Brighton’s Kamesburgh Gardens

Amy and Leigh were gorgeous. So ridiculously happy, and they came complete with an equally happy army for a bridal party. Seriously, an Army. There was five bridesmaids and five groomsmen. Large bridal parties are always a challenge, when documenting humans, the risk of capturing someone with their eyes half shut grows exponentially the more […]

The Jezebels do Melbourne’s Festival Hall

The Jezebels are stellar. It’s that simple. The Byron Bay foursome Hayley Mary, Heather Shannon, Nik Kaloper  and Samuel Lockwood are showing us all that Australia really does have international calibre musicians and they don’t have to be ACDC. This show was shot for triple j and you can see the full Jezebels gallery here

Cake, streamers, dress-ups, balloons, smiles – how can you not love days like this? Happy Birthday, Alice!

Florence + the Machine came to Melbourne in May 2012

Photo of Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine in Melbourne Australia

I’ve shot Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine a couple of times now. Each tour to Australia since the first time I photographed her at the Laneway Festival in 2010, she’s commanded larger and larger audiences at larger and larger concert venues. She’s come all the way from the tiny Footscray Laneway Festival stage, […]

For the last three years, triple j has broadcasted with a live audience on Good Friday to celebrate the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. For the third year of Good Az Friday, as with the first and second, I covered the event for the triple j website. Good Az Friday is always solid fun and has grown […]

An Autumn Wedding in Malvern

Photos of a Wedding in Malvern by photographer Kate Griffin

Last month, I had the pleasure of playing second photographer on a wedding shoot with friend, fellow photographer,  and web designer extrordinaire CC Hua. It’s the first time I’ve had the opportunity to be the Second shooter; I’ve used Second photographers with my own wedding clients and I’ve always envied their role – I perceived it […]

Sarah Blasko at the Forum Theatre

Photos of Sarah Blasko at the Forum Theatre

Way back in October 2007, Inpress sent me along to cover Sarah Blasko at the Forum Theatre in Melbourne. By the time this show came along, I’d been shooting music for just under a year. I was still getting the hang of it and I’d shot most jobs like crap  (I still cringe when I […]

A March Wedding at Marybrooke

Wedding photos in the cigar room at Marybrooke

Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of taking part in Erin and James’ wedding day at the ceremony and reception venue, Marybrooke. This gorgeous, heritage listed, tudor style mansion is hidden away on the edge of Sherbrooke Forest in the Dandenong Ranges, just 45 minutes from Melbourne. James and Erin curated an elegant day which […]

Soundwave 2012 rolls through Melbourne

Dillinger Escape Plan at Mebourne Soundwave 2012 by Kate Griffin

I think I’ve shot every Soundwave Festival that’s ever come through Melbourne, except the Faith No More year when some bright spark decided to supply me a writers pass rather than a photo pass. Which sucked because they weren’t letting me in with a bag full of cameras unless I had photo accreditation and I […]

SLAM day 2012 at the Espy

Valentiine perform in the Espy front bar on SLAM day 2012

On February 23rd 2012, the two year anniversary since 20,000 people marched through Melbourne to the tune of AC/DC’s definitive ‘Long Way to the Top’ to protest against the Victorian Government’s misguided policy link between live music and violence, Australia celebrated it’s first ever National SLAM Day. National SLAM day is about supporting your local artists and […]

MS Australia 24 Hour Mega Swim – Fitzroy

Photos of MS Australia 24 hour Mega Swim at Fitzroy Swimming Pool

This year I was privileged to be the event photographer for MS Australia’s 24 Hour Mega Swim at Fitzroy. The Fitzroy Mega Swim event has been running for 12 years and has raised almost $1.5 million since 2001 for MS Australia’s Go For Gold scholarship program. The event is made up of up to 37 teams, with no more than 15 swimmers […]
