Rusty and I were guests on the Carolyn and Joe Show. It’s a pretty sexy 51 minutes, if I do say so myself.

If you’d like to see a sampling of the images from our calendar (as mentioned in on the show), I posted a few from the original version here.

Now that I think about it, I should do a post about our Adventure Portraits.


Hello again, I know I haven’t posted any updates for a few weeks on the GO ASTRAY page. But I have good reason. I’ve been on tour filming a documentary on America’s band, The Beach Boys. I’m serious, THE BEACH BOYS It’s their 50 year anniversary and they first time in forever they are touring with the musical genius, Brian Wilson and I was hired to be on board to capture the US leg of the tour. It’s been a huge amazing adventure to be around these legends and having them know my face and name is huge for me. As a bunch of you guys know, The Beach Boys are a huge influence on me and my influences, so there was no way I could not be part of this project in anyway possible. But I am absolutely sorry for all my clients and partners projects that had to be shuffled back because of the filming of this documentary, but we’ll be rocking like we were very soon. But you guys already knew that.

But while on this tour I have been social media documenting this whole experience so far, if you’ve been following me on facebook, twitter and instagram you know I’ve been pushing images and posts out like clockwork. I, of course, have been taking numerous behind the scenes images of our small crew as we take on tour. The access is amazing and so is the tour, crew and of course the band. I will be posting those when all the dust settles on the US tour and I’m back on my homeland. Stay Tuned.

Keep following me while on The Beach Boys Tour

ALSO, yes, The Carolyn and Joe Show! is still rocking. Check out the newest episodes.


For my newest gallery of Hannah Elvington I feel like I’m gonna take my time posting them. Maybe we’ll make it a whole fall time of Hannah. We’ll see… But this is a start. I injected a new texture to this set and Hannah has pink hair. Let it begin.

And since it’s friday, I bet you need something to listen to on your ride to where ever, how about… THE CAROLYN AND JOE SHOW

Go ahead, download it.


You guys might remember a while back I did a photo shoot with Sallie Anne (which you can see HERE) Well, that was awhile ago, and sometimes, somethings just need updating. So since Sallie was about to set off in a brand new adventure in her life we thought it would only seem fit if we did another shoot just before she left, but something a bit more fun and wreckless, and different… Have a look.

This weeks Carolyn and Joe Show podcast has an attack from the swamp people! Tune in!


A few of you might remember I won a contest awhile back, and in that contest I entered a series of images that I shot with Lauren Jaslow and those images were voted on as the winners of that show. Then for some reason or another I never got a chance to finish up the rest of those images to share you. But at long last now that time has come! Now you can check out the whole Lauren Jaslow set. Hopefully in the future Lauren and I can rock out another series, she was definitely a blast to work, let her know how awesome she is by visiting her own site

Now check out the entire Lauren Jaslow series HERE (Warning: NSFW)

It’s time to let some new photography out into the wild. Last week you saw a black and white preview image from the newest team up with Hannah Elvington and I, now you get to enjoy the whole set. Thinking about it now, I think this is the first whole set of images in gallery form I’ve released of Hannah Elvington on the GO ASTRAY site. If that’s true, I’ll be sure to go back and post all the full sets and right that wrong.

Now enjoy the new Hannah Elvington gallery HERE
