Welcome to Armageddon Photos!

(Updated 28th October 2013)

Photos from the VIP Cocktail Party and A Night a Feldman's Bar from Armageddon Melbourne 2013 are online.

This site is an archive of photos taken at all Culture Shock events such as Armageddon, and Heroes and Villains since they started in Australia. All images on this site are freely available. At present, only small and large thumbnails are online. I intend to put better quality ones from recent events online once I've got all the new websites operational.

If you are interested in reprints of OFFICIAL photos with guests from these events these are still available for sale at Castle Photography as before. Please note that I can only supply photos taken at the booth I was responsible for - as such, the coverage will vary from event to event.

If you like this site, you may find my others interesting too. They include: Pete's Fan Photos, First Contact Photos, and Castle Photography

As you can tell, this site is pretty much a clone of my old layout. A complete overhaul is planned, to refresh the layout, presentation and indexing of all photos, and also to support downloading of hi-res copies of photos.

To contact me, send an email to: . Or ring anytime in the afternoon or evening on (+61 3) 9736 9568

Armageddon Wellington - June 2013

The lure of well over 10 guests from The Hobbit was too much to resist, so I'm over in Wellington for the first time in 6+ years. Since I have no official duties, I can take photos across the whole event - so there is more here than I've put in the site for a long time… Enjoy.

I will update the site each night over the 3 day event…
