Monday in paradise

So nice…

Treasure hunters -Emma Gale


Sun kissed treasures almost buried in the sand  a while back Jessie Prince and I decided to borrow some ceramic pieces from Artist Emma Gale and lug them across a rugged beach (who needs F45 lol) and play with them in the sand.

I love being organic and spontaneous, getting creative with like minded people, having a slight plan and a few key ingredients and a heap of creativity, not your average day at the beach

in the sand

Ever since I was a small boy I have loved walking thru the bush or along the beach collecting presents from nature that catch my eye, arranging them on the ground until I like the composition and sometimes photographing them but then leaving them behind…

Today trying something new without over thinking / styling things

Here’s my encaustic tile collection “ New Paradise” in the sand  available from Di Lorenzo tiles 

sand and sticks

Found on our afternoon beach walk, these sticks in the sand, all creativity no styling required

the beach people volume 2

The Beach People (whom I recently met whilst in Byron Bay) have a brand new collection. Yes more awesome round towels!

They tell me this collection was inspired by seas near and far; from the deep blue waters of the Aegean sea comes ‘The Santorini’, from the seaside port in the Hamptons with it’s native American name comes ‘The Montauk’, from the aqua waters set against the tropical jungle we bring you ‘The Tulum’, from the pebbled coast under the heat of the southern French sun comes ‘The Paloma’ and from our favourite local spot at Fingal Head, NSW comes ‘The Dreamtime’.

These towels are designed to whisk you of to these dreamy locations in your mind and are the perfect companion for your next seaside or poolside adventure, be it Bondi, Byron, Bali, Beverly Hills or where ever you choose!

With creative direction and styling by our dear friend Sheree from Captain and the Gypsy kid who’s aesthetic feels like home to us after our Cote d’azure photography collaboration. It was an easy choice to let her take our range across the Pacific to the one and only (you guessed it) Tulum, Mexico.

Set against the backdrop of the Coqui Coqui luxury resort and perfumerie, it’s name; one word repeated twice has had us weak at the knees for a few years so it was a dream come true to have our humble Roundies photographed at possibly the most beautiful location in Mexico.

Modelled by the nomadic story-teller Hanalei Reponty, relaxed and hanging with locals, sauntering around the stone walls of the Coqui Coqui, riding in the back of trucks full of local produce. The results are feast of gorgeous images for our eyes and of course we would just love to share the full shoot with you below…
