Five minutes with Festool

Five minutes with Festool is the title of a new series of articles I’m working on which will give you an in depth view of a wide variety of Festool tools and accessories tied up in a bite sized package. With each article being about 500 words they’re intended to be a quick and informative read.

Being the lead salesperson in one of the busiest dealers in Melbourne I field a lot of questions about the whole range Festool products and this article, which covers the range of blades available for the Festool TS55 , will hopefully address some of the questions you may have about them

Festool Blades 

 As always your questions and comments are appreciated and I’ll endeavour to answer as many as I can. 

See you next week for the next instalment.

Cheers

Bryan

I’m back in the saddle…..

Well I’ll admit that it’s been a long time between posts and a hell of a lot had gone on in the last few years. The biggest change, which has shocked most of you who know me personally, is the fact that I’ve gone from a weight of 178 kg down to a meagre 74kg. I had a number of quite serious medical problems which resulted in 7 hours of surgery and me losing 75% of my stomach.

That was back in Dec 2016 and whilst the body healed a while ago it’s been a challenging 18 months dealing with all the changes to my body and working on getting my head in the right place so that I can focus on writing again. A big thanks to those of you whose words of support have helped me move forward and and I must admit that It would of been a damn sight harder to get through this without the love and support of my wife Sharon and children.  Love you all guys.

Cheers,

Bryan

Street Photography

Now, I’m not afraid to say that I’m new at this style of photography.   When I was in my late teens to early twenties my primary camera was firstly an Agfa Billy, then an Olympus OM2 and I burned through a lot of my  weekly pay check  on film to support  my hobby. I remember picking up the two to three rolls of processed film from the photo kiosk in my local shopping centre, rushing home to check them out and and and proudly showing my parents, friends, and whoever else would look, endless shots of trees, cars, our cats and whatever else I thought would make a good image.

Eventually, I suppose, I got tired of shooting the same style of image and my attention drifted to other interests.

Now, some 20 years later with amazing developments in technology, I’ve armed myself with an iPhone 6+ and have jumped  in feet first and have rekindled my passion for photography. After all these years I’m now shooting work that I’m proud of and am fortunate to have found a market for.  I’m back to shooting a lot of images and love having the ability to post process on my phone and to be able to consign my duds to the trash bin.

This series of work represents my first real foray into street photography, an area I thought I’d explore after reading an article on  Eyeem  about the noted street photographer Saul Leiter
