@hotndelicious Photo Diary | Bondi to Bronte Magic & Silhouette Sessions

Phwoar!!!!! I’ve just had one of the most amazing photography sessions of my life!
.
Mind-blowing sunrise, surf photography and silhouette sessions between Tamarama and Bronte Beach!
.
I was in the zone, zen-focused and the only way that I can describe the shoot is split second captures, moments in time and an approach that I taught myself in the music industry whilst shooting freelance for triple j/myself at festivals/gigs around Australia and honed over the past 10-15 years in Australia, the USA and around the world…
.
Be in the moment and by all means grab a diverse array of images that people expect/that the client wants, but don’t just shoot what’s in front of you… try for something new, shoot from a different perspective and take in the whole scene, then fully your gut instinct and position yourself in the best vantage points to anticipate and time where you think that the best, most unexpected and most spectacular photos will be… from your perspective. That’s how you inspire your own creative flow, keep your passion for photography and that’s how stand out as one of the best, with a style of your very own.
.
I am my own harshest critic and while I am keenly aware that I still have SO much to learn about the technical/editing side of things, I can see how far that I’ve come in this past 6 months alone and I am proud of me. In my humble opinion, we should own what we’ve achieved for ourselves, our growth and what we’re good at, as it helps generate a sense of self-worth and purpose, which keeps our energy levels high and the positivity flowing, which in turn generates a desire for forward momentum through further growth.
.
I felt so energised after this beautiful morning on Bondi to Bronte Coastal Walk that my synapses were firing on all cylinders for literally the rest of Saturday, as I hit the ocean for a bodysurfing sesh post-shoot, Bondi Farmers Market with a friend for a fresh baguette and sunflowers for my apartment and a delicious bowl of pho, Bondi Icebergs Club for a Saturday arvo beers with a close mate from my Dubai days and even  into the next day when I went at it again! It’s amazing how it can make you feel when you feed your creativity and flow… so in love with life!
.
Split second captures. Moments in time. So focused and so zen. One of the sickest f*ckin’ sunrise surf photography sessions of my life!

P.s. It has been a big week and I’m excited for the week ahead! My new biz launches next week! I’d planned it to be this week, however the joys of building your own website, writing strategy/planning, choosing/honing content and unexpected tech issues/speed humps means that we’re now launching next week. I can’t wait to tell you what it is!  😊🤫

Bondi to Bronte: Creative Inspiration & 7 Days of Sunrise.

Posted on Updated on

Sunrise Beach Volleyball - Tamarama Beach by @hotndelicious

What a magical start to Wednesday!
.
I hit the backstreets of South Bondi and Tamarama on my sunrise Bondi to Bronte Coastal Walk this morning to get the glutes and quads firing, which makes my butt feel like a ripe peach at Harris Farms on market day and kickstarts the endorphins firing through my system by the time I start shooting out the back of Tamarama Beach, as the sun rises over the ocean and I walk down the hill from above to Bronte Beach.
.
I had an energising week of little wins last week, with several prospective biz opportunities that I’m hoping will come into a fruition over the coming weeks and months, PLUS I’m launching a new business venture within the next 7 days – you know that I’m into it and firing on all cylinders when I carve out time on a Saturday afternoon to register various domain names, the business name and lock-in all of the brand new social media handles across all platforms. You’re going to love this – it’s going to make you crack up with laughter and give you squeals of joy when you see it. Watch this space!
.
That combined with 7 x sunrise walks and 7 x lunchtime bodysurfing sessions in the 7 days from Monday to Sunday last week, had me flowing with energy and joy, so I was well ready for a 3.5 hour sunrise photography walk this morning after being stuck inside of the wet & cold, blustery winter weather of Bondi Beach the past 2 days (yes, it happens sometimes in winter) 😁✨
.
I met Maria at Bronte Beach just after sunrise and we had lovely little chats, whilst capturing silhouettes of waves against the Mackenzies Point and North Bondi backdrop, bumped in Uge AKA Aquabumps at Bronte Beach and a bunch of different peeps back on my home turf on the promenade at Bondi Beach, including one of my Instagram followers Kirsten, whom I’d never met in person before. She stopped me to say hi and tell me how much she loves my pics. Thank you! (Do it, don’t be shy, peeps – it makes my day every single time). I love our little Bondi Beach community!
.
As we speak, I’m editing this morning’s images with a smile on my face and you’ll note that I’ve given the captures some rustic yellows and deep, sky blues in Lightroom, as to me they fit the vibe this morning – coming out into the light of a beautiful sunrise after a stormy few days and the sea is still quite wild. Can you guess which shots are my faves?
.
I am looking forward to my lunchtime bodysurfing sesh and excited for the beautiful weather forecasted for the week ahead!
.
Happy Wednesday everybody!

From the backstreets of Tamarama to Bondi Beach. Cracking sunrise Sydney!

From the backstreets of Tamarama to Bondi Beach. Cracking sunrise, Sydney!
.
After the dirty-ass, stormy winter weather last week, I set myself a goal to smash out sunrise photography walks and bodysurfing every single day this week. Got to earn those weekend bevies (and the shhhh… weekday COVID lockdown brews 😁🤦‍♂️ 🤫) , plus I’m a massive foodie and loves a hot dinner too! 😆🥳
.
On my sunrise photography walks, I predominantly decide on the fly which route I’m going to walk & shoot (I’ll even change mid-walk), as I adore the spontaneity of a life lived in the moment and that’s how I shoot my photography too. It keeps it fresh, makes me feel more present, which in turn builds a feeling of zen and I find that it generates even higher levels of excitement, when I discover and snap so many amazing, spontaneous moments in time (as I did this morning) by going with the flow and just seeing where the mood and shoot takes me.
.
I hit a couple of my favourite secret spots out the back of Tamarama Beach, captured surfers riding beautiful sets into Bronte Beach – shot from the park bench in front of Tamarama SLSC (check out the one with the salmon jumping out of the water in front of the dude about to fall off his surfboard!!! Seriously!!!!!) and on the home stretch, I walked up and over the hill at Mackenzies Point to soak up surfers making the most of every last second of the golden waves at high tide in South Bondi. 2 hours of absolute bliss. This morning was fire!
.
Love you Bondi!

Bam! Dark & Stormy. Welcome to wet & wild Bronte Rock Pool magic! 
.
Explosive 10-15ft waves and wet & wild conditions are pounding the east coast of Australia this week and I was excited to hit Bronte Rock Pool at Sydney’s iconic Bronte Beach with my home-boy (and fellow shooter) JB this morning to capture this little bit of magic.
.
Hit me up if you’re keen to snap up one of these wicked photographic prints and I hope that you’re having a lovely week. Stay safe out there, peeps!

Richard Branson, skin melanoma and the Million Dollar Beard – Jimmy Niggles | Podcast Episode #104

Posted on Updated on

Jimmy Niggles - Beard Season founder joins the Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! podcast in Sydney.
Jimmy Niggles – Beard Season founder joins the Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! podcast in Sydney.

DOWNLOAD the PODCAST – #104 Jimmy Niggles – Beard Season founder.

 
Beard Season is a yearly event dedicated to Jimmy Niggles’ close friend, Wes Bonny, who died in 2009 of cancer just three months after being diagnosed with melanoma. 
 
The following winter Jimmy Niggles and his mates played what is now an annual footie game in memory of Wes and in 2011 grew their beards in his honour through the winter, in an event they dubbed Beard Season.
 
Beard Season evolved has over the past 5-6 years into an ongoing campaign to spread the word about how important it is to check your skin for abnormalities that might lead to cancer only a yearly and to raise awareness of what to look for, particularly as most people, myself included, don’t know that the most people at risk from melanoma are blokes aged 18-45.
 
On Wednesday night just gone, Jimmy and I sat down at for a Bronte Beach sunset of red wine, cheese and dips and recorded a podcast about skin cancer, Richard Branson, Graham Norton, the #MillionDollarBeard, dreams with dates & much much more.
 
It’s inspiring to think that what was an event set-up to commemorate a good mate & top bloke,   has grown into a global phenomenon and it was just wonderful to spend with an individual who is striving to spend a large chunk of their time making a positive impact on the lives of others.
