midnight sun

model: alexandra bromley
make up: lisa boswell

so many photos still to come from the shoot with alex and lisa almost two saturdays ago, what a great poser she was.  i'm going through a black and white phase and am tempted to convert them all but i suppose a splash of colour's nice too - which do you prefer?

i'm also prepping for tomorrow which is a big day, it's my first time shooting a wedding and i'm super excited - maybe a little nervous... so here's hoping the rain in sydney will stop for the photos but umbrellas are on the ready just incase, wish me luck.

sneak peak...

model: alexandra bromley
make up artist: lisa boswell

i love tim burton movies and had wanted to do a tim burton inspired shoot for a while so when alex asked me to take photographs for her portfolio i suggested we base the shoot upon this theme.  this is the first photo from the series taken the saturday before last but i'm still trying to catch up with all the editing after a busy assessment week at college.  alex was an amazing model, she's also a dancer so she was very aware of her body and the shapes she was creating.  she really could pose beautifully.  the location is angel place, right in the city centre, it was unbelievable.  birdcages were strung across, hanging between the buildings, i'm sure you'll know the place if you passed by but it is quite hidden considering it's in the very centre of sydney.  it was part of an art project which they decided to keep and there were also speakers projecting bird tweets to set the scene.  i did struggle a bit though, since the birdcages were hung so high i found i had to shoot upwards to get the cages in shot and there were also tourists, construction workers and later security guards to battle with too.

shoot out photos

more photos from the shootout with julia trotti, modelled by ayesha jane.  i cannot believe two weeks have passed by already!  i still have so much to edit, including a tim burton inspired shoot from last weekend which i can't wait to start. the workload with college has gone up 'heaps' as the the ozzies would say and i've also started a part time job last week because i haven't found assisting work to be very consistent. can't complain though, it's nice to be so busy...

shoot out day

this saturday just past i had the wonderful opportunity of attending a shoot out day that the very talented Julia Trotti had organised.  there were ten of us photographing one model, Ayesha Jaye who was made up by make up artist, Ally Cussell and wearing the beautiful designs of Suzi Rose.  through the heat and the sunburn we got some great photos and it was amazing to meet so many photographers, can't wait to see everyone's photographic interpretation.  for now here's some behind the scenes shots, finished photos to come soon...
