This week the world, and SG lost an incredibly talented photographer @captureofcthulhu and one of the kindest men I’ve had the most pleasure of knowing. Daniel went above and beyond, he worked me harder than any other photographer, but he also flew to my state & drove an additional 3 hours to shoot sets in my home town just because he knew how much it...

@gadget Daniel reached out for help plenty of times before and had the entire Australian sg community rush to his aid, just as we did the night he passed away. But sometimes that isn’t enough, we are all hurting and don’t need to be told that we failed a friend when we did all we could from all over the country.

It was not my intent to make anyone individually feel like they failed him. I'm sure you all were there every time he asked. I'm speaking from the perspective of someone who has had the desire to leave this place, like Daniel, for a very long time. Yesterday was the anniversary of the death of another member dear to my heart who passed from suicide. The point is not that any one person failed. It's the times that we feel too defeated to ask that are the most dangerous, and of course, people aren't mind readers so... It's a tragedy, and my heart goes out to the SG Australia community, to Daniel's family, and to Daniel himself. I live every day on that same edge, so personally, when I see another person let go I am filled with a mix of emotions, and yes, the strongest feeling for me is failure. I feel that personally and I didn't know him. I've struggled for years trying to understand my own friends choice. I know Daniel was waiting to be rescued, just as I know that my friend was. I know that because I've felt it. "Somebody please help me.", so many times. It's heartbreaking, and because of my own fears, it makes me angry at the world. Not at SG Australia, not at you Sunflower, not at anyone. Anger is a stage of grief and even though I didn't know the man, I still feel that because we all deserve to be rescued.

Hi everyone!

I’m still on a bit of a hiatus but just wanted to let you know I have a set coming out in the next 24 hours shot by @victory. It’s very different to all my others and has a beautiful soft mood to it, I just love it!

It was shot over a year ago, in Sydney the morning after our SGAU annual

Hi guys!

I haven't been around much lately, but I'm taking a break for at least the next year or so. I've still got a set coming out, and I'll be lurking around checking friends sets that come out, but all in all my life outside of SG is so full and rewarding that SG is no longer serving me the purpose it once did,...

Beautiful people, I have a lot going on right now and probably won't be around much. Except for the odd photo here and there. Sorry if I have missed any of your incredible sets, comment here and I'll check them out the second I have the time & brain space.

Lots of love,

Sunflower

Oh holy moly was this blog topic made for me haha! But truthfully, I don't think I have even done half the things I'd like to be remembered for. @Rambo @lyxzen @missy

I really want to make a difference in conservation (surprise, surprise right?!) and be remembered for it. I am currently completing a course at my local zoo to become a certified zookeeper, giving...

I'm lucky enough to call one of the most beautiful places in the world my home town. Australia's South West is one of 25 Biodiversity Hotspots worldwide. Essentially this means it's full of incredibly diverse ecosystems occupied by endemic species of flora and fauna found no where else. I've been able to visit a lot this summer and do more exploring than I used to
