Welcome to First Contact Photos!

(Updated 3rd September 2014)

Photos from Creatures of the Night (Melbourne) are now online. The official photos with the guest can be found on Castle Photography.

This site is an archive of photos taken at all First Contact Conventions events since they started. 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.

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

As you can tell, this site is pretty much a clone of my old layout. A complete overhaul will be done eventually to refresh the layout, presentation and indexing of all photos, but 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
