Entry number 94 for the 2022 365 Black & White Challenge is from a party I photographed recently.

2022 365 Black & White Challenge – 94/365

So this isn’t a photograph you get to take every day.


I’m off to Adelaide in June to photograph in the largest roller derby tournament in the Southern Hemisphere.

Looking forward to getting back into roller derby photography as it has been far too long between bouts.

TGSS (The Great Southern Slam) is usually held every two years at the Adelaide Showgrounds and brings together the best roller derby teams in the country for three days of skating smashyness (it’s a word).

My wife and I have a story we tell people about our last three trips.

Back in 2014, my wife (but not back then) and I were sitting next to each other on the sidelines at the Division 1 Grand Final. Next to us were our respective long term partners.

Back in 2016, we attended TGSS again, this time as husband and wife and this time, my wife was five months pregnant.

Back in 2018, we attended TGSS … with a nearly two-year-old in tow.

Obviously, the 2020 TGSS didn’t happen. 

We are both wondering what’s going to happen at this year’s TGSS.

Let me interrupt the flow to bring you a message from our sponsor, Me! Did you love the photo?
