Models……

31 May

I have blogged before about models, some are natural, some do not show up or are late, some are fun and some are just precious….well this weekend end I am shooting a local fashion show and they had a small media launch party the other night.

Two models from the show were there to add  some beauty to the evening and , I suppose, present a sample of what will be displayed on the day.

One of these models is  a newcomer to the industry, the other is actually a stylist that happens to be almost six feet tall. These two young ladies were a delight. Classy, happy to chat with the crowd, posed for photos without any forced happiness and put up with me moving them all over the restaurant to get some publicity shots for all the sponsors.

I cant wait to work with these happy, talented people on the weekend, it will be a pleasure .

Lifestyle on the coast…….

30 May

Lets face it the Gold Coast is normally associated with bikinis, blondes and boobs and probably for good reason the beaches are beautiful and the fantastic climate encourages the beachy look.

However, I also believe that this great part of the world can be illustrated with just a picture of vitality and health.

When we were shooting some portfolio images for local model Roxanne, we wondered out along a sand spit and the whole scene just summed up the Gold Coast, clean air, beautiful beaches and vital people…the lifestyle on the Gold Coast.

Surfing up a storm………

29 May

I have posted images of surfing before on this blog, hey lets face it I do live about ten minutes from a suburb called Surfers Paradise.

Usually when there is a rideable wave near here, its standing room only out the back and each wave is hotly contested.

Not the case today when this bloke was all alone, surfing up a storm…………………..

Synchronised (life)Savers……..

28 May

I have been lucky enough in my life to work alongside people like these two good friends. Very fashionable in their matching gear, this is what these guys do for a living.

In this shoot they were only training for the real thing, but its’ nice to know there are these very special people out there looking out for the rest of us.

 

Fishing for a pot of Gold…………

28 May

As a boy I would jump on my bike and chase rainbows looking for the elusive pot of gold.

Needless to say I never caught up with the fabled treasure.

This fellow at Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast had a new way to try to snag the treasure..maybe this is why its’ called the Gold Coast………….

Tiffany…..

27 May

This was shot a while ago, but I really like the look of mischief on Tiffanys’ face.

Tiff has been featured in a couple of the earlier shoots and has always managed to look glamourous and have a hint of devil about her personality.

Beach Boys music and a classic truck…………

24 May

The “Cooly Rocks” Festival starts again next week, the festival pays homage to all things Rock and Roll.

Slick hair, booby socks, swirling skirts, rumbling V8s and burger bars..Cooly Rocks has it all.

Coolangatta, the town that hosts the festival is on of the hottest beach destinations along the coast and so there has to be a fair bit of Beach Boys rocking over the beach….
