OK GANG – MONDAY APRIL 18th 2016 in Adelaide South Australia the mighty ATKINS photo lab {the oldest lab in Australia and the best lab in the world} is putting on a one day class about shooting with film for professional photographers – run by two working pros who shoot film for weddings: 
Mark Dohring from Bentinmarcs Photography and
Dan Wooldridge from Eon Images.

I am going and i want you to go too. Flights are cheap to go for the day. Adelaide is rad to hang out in for the night. If you come over – we will go out for dinner together and grab an authentic hamburger.

If you in the AIPP you get in for cheaper – and if you mention to the Atkins team that you are a listener of the podcasts, you might just get a discount too.

Stop faffing about, book the tickets and come over and do a great class with great people in a great lab in a great city. I’ll be there and give you a high five.

SUPERNATURAL – the journey begins.

OK – so i’ve waited a decade to finally start on this TV Show. I have always known that it would be something the 16 year old me would have loved – problem was it launched in my 30′s when i was busy building family, moving states and building businesses….
Now i’m 43 and it’s a new year and i feel like starting something i’ve always wanted to do…. something the X-file loving “Strange Stories, Amazing Facts” reading, “Mysteries of the Unexplained” studying, Chick Tract collecting and horror movie watching teenager i was {still am down deep?} would have LOVED.
So let the bells ring: DJ Paine has begun the Supernatural TV Series.

God is Cool

And now a friendly message from my 8 year old son @galvinpaine – this is a school art project that he brought home where he could come up with any cool slogan or message he wanted to…. ahhhhhh Galvin boy, the friendly neighbourhood theologian. #god #cool #art #blue (at The Brothers Paine)

i just found this message from years ago….

“Hey DJ.
