Selfie Made Day!

Are you between 18-35, female and Australian? No wonder I’ve ended up with so many pictures of selfies!! It’s the Aussies that gave us selfies and we’ve done a pretty good job of taking it on. About 350,000 a week on Facebook! But do you cock your head to your left or your right when you take your selfie…..? Ah, right! Well apparently you always do it to the left side. I prefer the funny side of a selfie at my weddings…like the shot of Dan, Emma and Frankie at Cheryl and Dave’s wedding. The bath! Why not.Cheryl_and_Dave_049Well, Instagram may have over 53 million photos with the hashtag #selfie but it doesn’t take much to get a sneaky shot of the bride and groom with the old selfie stick..Jenna_and_Matthew_171_aEveryone one at a wedding becomes a celebrity. I love seeing people being themselves and just, well….celebrating. A selfie orchestrated during the Oscars by host Ellen DeGeneres is the most re-tweeted image ever. She had twelve Oscar celebs on stage including Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Channing Tatum, Bradley Cooper, Kevin Spacey, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Lupita Nyong’o, Jared Leto and Jennifer Lawrence. The selfie was re-tweeted over 1.8 million times in the first hour!!

He’s me, the photographer, who’s given up on watching the others photo themselves and is just jumping into a bit of the action for himself. Selfies are a mark of being there. Being there for your family and best friends and being there to acknowledge the love and fun. Long may it continue!
