I’m an Australian furry who lives in the state of New South Wales in the town of Katoomba. I’m 30 years old and have lived in Katoomba most of my life. Katoomba is a small town located in the Blue Mountains located west of Sydney.
My relationship status is single. I am not currently looking for a partner. To describe my personality I would say I’m a shy, introverted person. Who is really chill and quiet most of the time. It takes a while for me to open up to people.
I enjoy eating out, chilling in a cafe on the internet and seeing the sights. I love to eat Asian, Italian and Indian cuisine. I always like to drink coffee. I'm a non-smoker but I do enjoy a drink occasionally. When I do drink I enjoy cocktails such as Espresso Martini's, Beer and Red Wine.
As far as spirituality goes I am an atheist. My political beliefs fall to the left of center on the political compass. I have worked for Dan Murphy's as a customer assistant. I am currently a carer for my schizophrenic, diabetic father Graeme.
The furry fandom has been a positive influence on my life. The fandom has made me travel across Australia. I’ve meet great people and I’m meeting more positive people with each event I attend. I attended my first furry convention Furry Down Under in 2016. I’ve been to Melbourne for ConFurgence and back to FurDU in 2017.
WHAT WILL YOU FIND IN MY GALLERIES
I’m a furry photographer who likes to take photos of fursuits. I think fursuits are beautiful wearable art. It’s a photographic passion of mine to capture them in front of my lens. You will find photos from furry conventions, local furry events and sometimes even one on one photo shoots. If you find yourself in one of my photos you are free to repost as long as you give me credit as the photographer. Being from Australia don't expect any photos from Anthrocon or Midwest Furfest (Yet) but I have photos from the Australian furry scene.
Next is artwork the art that I post are pieces that I have commissioned from artists. I make that clear in the titles and / or description in my gallery. Sometimes I win an art raffle or receive gift art. The artwork mainly features my fursona Silver Sheep. I don’t have adult art of my fursona. I don’t think that I would do that with Silver Sheep. Perhaps a secondary fursona in the future. The highest rating is mature like on the tank commander piece.
Last but not least is my writing. I don’t really consider myself a writer but I occasionally write short stories. These tend to be furry homosexual themed erotica they are pretty out there too. It’s just a bit of self expression. An expression of my sexuality. If you don't like that sort of stuff don't click on it simple.
Silver Sheep is based of the sheep in the Wicked! story series by Paul Jennings and Morris Gleitzman. I read Wicked as a teen and the cover art for the third book in the series I thought was very cool. The story of the steel sheep was something that fascinated me.
Silver Sheep is an anthro Suffolk sheep. I went with the Suffolk breed because Silver isn't a jock archetype like that is often represented by the American bighorn sheep for example. He has the ability to turn his fleece into steel wool like that of a steel wool scourer. He works as a Zoid pilot. Zoids are large robot animals from the anime of the same name. Silver Sheep lives and works in a Communist dictatorship with other anthro Sheep.
Sheep have a collective nature so I thought of what a society of anthropomorphic sheep would be like. It would be a communist nation or something along the lines of the Japanese philosophy of valuing the group over the individual. A communist dictatorship setting offers great artistic ideas and also fits in with a militaristic pilot of animal robots so I went with that.

FURRY CONVENTIONS ATTENDED
As you can see from my feed I have been uploading photos from The Mid May Meet. I will choose seven more photos and resume working on my FurDU photos. Mid May was a fun meet and it had a few surprise furs attend. The lighting conditions were a little tricky due to the harsh full sun but I took some good shots. It helps that I am getting more comfortable asking fursuiters to move into better lighting conditions for photos. I wanted to get the Mid May photos out because people like having photos quickly.
I still have many FurDU photos that I can use so expect more over the coming days. My target is to publish at least as many FurDU convention photos as I have published from ConFurgence. I have already surpassed my old total from FurDU 2016. I am impressed by my photography skills and how much they have increased in just a year. Comparing my photos from last year's FurDU to this year's I have seen a marked improvement.
My next photographic outing will be on the 24th of June at the Winter Magic Festival. For years I have watched from the sidelines as the fursuiters walked past Dan Murphy's while I was stuck inside working. Last year a smart ass manager said as I was crouched down pulling a box of wine forward that I should watch out because I would be tempting the furries to have their way with me. Good thing I was still in the closet and they didn't know I was gay while working there. Now I am free to join in on the parade.
I hope it isn't fursuit only in the parade. I don't know if you can just rock up or not. I'll have to find out. I will get to hang out with my friends ether way. Katoomba is my home town so it's just a walk up the street for me. My only real fear is a certain person (not a fur) who I had cut from my life ruining my time with my friends. I'll just have to man up. It will be a great time.
In July I am going to the Bathurst fur meet. It's on from the 7th to the 9th of July. I'll have to get my act together for it. My plan is to stay in one of the local Motels / Hotels for the weekend maybe try to coordinate with my friends to book my own room in the same hotel. Transport could be via Train or asking one of the furs for a lift. I am super keen now that I know some of the furs better. Diego raves about how good it is so it has his paw print of approval.
My last event in July is The Pound dance party in Sydney on the 21st. It's dubbed a pup play / furry club event with drinking and dancing. I'm not the clubbing type (don't own a fish net shirt) but since it's fursuiters and dancing I am down. It's on the same weekend as HCFC. I am not attending HCFC this year. I hope they do well some of the furs could be in town and come over for a party at The Pound.
On a side note if The Pound does well it could be the Australian answer to Frolic Party. One of the photographer furs that regularly shoots Frolic Party is a guy who inspired me to buy my first DSLR camera and get into fursuit photography. His name is Loc0 he is quite the talented photographer as well.
