Winter Sun (Publication)

A test shoot that I captured last year has been published on Sticks & Stones online! Jonny Harris from GTR and I braved the winter cold to capture some images around the arts centre. I love playing with light and shadow, so this time of year is one of my favourite times to shoot. Jonny was amazing to work with, really relaxed but also open to trying anything. A lot of models feel awkward contorting their bodies into strange poses, or trying potentially unflattering expressions, but Jonny actually initiated the slightly ‘odd’ feel to the shoot.

Here are the images that made it into the online feature

And here are some more shots that didn’t make the cut…

One Of The Boys

It is now the end of winter (well, almost), but an editorial that I shot at the start of the season has just been released. I’m proud to announce that I’ve been published in The Model Magazine, from the US. My most recent editorial, One Of The Boys can be found in both the print and online magazine, and you can even buy it! (Check out the August 2017 edition.) Here is the online teaser featuring my work.

I was working with models from GTR Global, who were amazing as per usual. Keegan I had worked with before, but Lorenzo was a new face. It was really different working with two models at the same time, but I really enjoyed it. Having two people to pose opened up more possibilities for composition and variation. I think Keegan and Lorenzo looked really good together.

I wanted to shoot at an athletics track, as I’d recently stumbled across one by accident and liked the graphic lines and bold red colour of the track. With that in mind, I got a bunch of ‘sporty’ casual wear from Myer and H&M to dress the boys in.

It was, as per usual, a really cold day in the middle of winter, so I was glad that I wasn’t having to get changed every few minutes, and got to stay snug inside my coat (sorry boys.) I had hoped to catch some golden winter light, but the clouds had other ideas. But one of the skills of a photographer is being able to adapt and “make it work” in any scenario, so that’s what I tried to do.

One thing that I noticed whilst shooting was the change in the way that Keegan worked in front of the camera. Having shot with him before, I couldn’t help but compare his current on-camera presence with that of our last shoot. I noticed that he had improved a lot since the time before, and seemed a lot more comfortable in front of the lens. That was really nice to observe. It really like working with talent on multiple occasions, so see how they progress, but also because it’s just nice to work with good people again.

Thank you Keegan and Lorenzo for being great models.

Sooo excited to see some of my retouching work gracing the cover of Elite Property Management / Elite Agent Magazine. Featuring the fine folk at Melbourne Real Estate (MRE) South Yarra.

The photographer is James Braund. I assisted on this shoot, and also did the lighting and retouching. It was such a good day, especially capturing the group shot which contained over 30 people! Read about our efforts in James’ blog here. (You might even spot me in one of the behind the scenes photos!)

Below is the retouched group shot, which was not only inside the magazine, but is going to be printed on metal, at a gigantic scale!

Spotted!

Seeing your work in print is exciting.

Seeing your work really large in a shop window, unexpectedly, is REALLY exciting.

Look what I saw when walking through DFO yesterday. I do not claim to be the photographer here, but I worked as an assistant to Saville Coble on this campaign for Stafford Ellinson. I also did the retouching, so I feel like I was part of this final image.

How exciting!

“Call Time” Published in HUF Mag

It’s the best feeling when you wake up to an email that says your work has been accepted into a magazine. This week I was lucky enough to be published in HUF Magazine. I’d been trying to get this editorial published for a while, so I’m glad that I am finally allowed to share the images.

The concept behind this shoot was ‘Behind The Scenes,’ or what happens in between the shots of a fashion shoot. I had a lot of fun building up the sets using equipment and props that we naturally had in the studio.
