Cycling through the Eras

Premierships are the benchmark of successful teams.  Geelong had been starved of real success since 1963.  A founding member of the league as we know it, influential on the rules as we know them, the once powerful Geelong had become mediocre.  A spate of losing efforts in Grand Finals dating back to 1967 against Richmond, 1989 against […]

Power House – my home away from home

I’ve been involved with Power House footy club since 1985, I played just 66 games for the Club over 15 seasons (I retired from playing in 2000).  I’ve been a player, a committee man and since 1995 my business DISKMANdotNet has been the Club’s web designer, domain name and web hosting provider and more recently I’ve […]

Angry Little Man – Alastair Clarkson

The Footy Show’s (Sam Mitchell’s) gag about Alastair Clarkson being found in the images section of Google images was just that… a hopeless gag… but to prove how Keywords are important for SEO and how DISKMANdotNet can help you with your web site’s ‘find-ability’ within Google; we’ve embarked on this exercise.

Tom Hawkins: Rise of the Tomahawk

Tom Hawkins, much maligned, much anticipated.  Some supporters always knew he’d take time to develop; but many were screaming for his head on a platter.  It’s time now for the nay-sayers to give him the respect he richly deserves. Finally he is getting the recognition that he has fought for; that he was going to […]

JDP Spotted on KISSOPOLIS

It’ always a thrill to find my photos on other people’s web sites.  In this case I am really over the moon as KISS is one of my all time favorite bands.  Mixing music and photography (equal par as far as my passions go) is always going to be enjoyable.  Photographing Bruce Kulick at the […]

Jimmy Bartel; the Cats Greatest?

I have such beautiful eyes

Having to put up with wearing glasses every waking moment of every day is a pain in the backside, and annual checkups are a must to make sure everything is going ok.  Prevention is far better than any cure so staying on top of it all is good peace of mind.  Recently I have been […]

Bruce Kulick Photo Shoot

In February 2012 I had the pleasure of photographing Bruce Kulick (ex-KISS guitarist 1984 – 1996) at the Corner Hotel in Richmond, Melbourne. Bruce put an awesome band together comprising of Tim Henwood (Vocals), Travis Dragani (Drums), Paul Drennan (Guitar), Matt Macauliffe (Bass) and of course Bruce himself on Vocals and Guitars.  The band bashed […]

Led brilliantly by Joel Selwood, Jimmy Bartel and experienced defenders, Tom Lonergan, Harry Taylor and Josh Hunt the Cats were able to hold off a desperate effort by the young Tiger team, who actually drew […]
