Dress for dinner…..or brunch!

30 Aug

With outdoor dining an everyday part of our life, people are now feeling comfortable dressing down or glamming up even going out for a Latte and nibbles.

Here on the sunny Gold Coast we are spoilt for choice of comfortable and affordable eateries. From one end of the coast to the other, high fashion mingles with swimwear and rippled jeans.

Delightful……..

I had a shoot a couple of days ago with an experienced model and one that is new to fashion modelling. I can see the faces of the fashion photographers now, “a new model, that means taking ages to show her how to pose, smile etc, and teamed with an experienced model, arghh!!”

Wrong, although they had never met before the shoot, they got on famously and not once was I waiting for them to be ready, on the contrary it was me that held the shoot up changing camera bodies, lens and other photography stuff.

Sarah who I have shot before is a true professional. Cold, hot, windy or raining, she holds poses, adds creative ideas and always looks great.

Emma is new, but honestly you would never know it. Ready to shoot, quick to change and re-pose, she remains happy and helpful.

Adding to making this shoot fun, was having my wife along to assist, her skills with a camera are certainly fast approaching pro level and her eye for detail is second to none.

Beauty and Fashion……..

The best laid plans of mice and men…………. hmmmm, I traveled to Brisbane yesterday for the first day of Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival. A grand marquee, a troupe of beautiful models, make up artists and stylists. Then of course the gang of photographers all shooting for different fashion outlets and guess what……no show. A safety issue arose concerning seating and the organisers took the right decision to postpone the shows.

In the meantime, I am no longer able to attend the rest of the shows due to other circumstances meaning the only photo I walked away with is of one of the sponsors products, albeit one that costs more than my house.

Does it tick the box for fashion, beauty and art?

Yes!!!

Sunshine and Bikinis……….

24 Aug

As summer closes in on the beautiful Gold Coast, designers are starting to display their new season swimwear.

We had a great shoot today for Fashion GC showcasing several designers new wares.

Models Emma and Sarah were fantastic, and certainly displayed the swimwear to its best.

Fashion show time is almost here…….

22 Aug

Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival is starting Sunday and going on throughout next week. Established and emerging designers will have the models strutting their wares at the treasury casino in Brisbane.

This will be a great chance to capture the latest looks for the the two organisations I will be shooting for, and a an opportunity to catch up with some other fashion photographers that I haven’t seen for a while.

Late nights and lots of images to process, but hey, someone has to do it!!

Siren……..

21 Aug

In days gone by there were fables about the “Siren’s of the Sea”. Some called them mermaids, beautiful women that would sing to sailors and lure them to their death on the rocks.

Kristina isn’t trying to lure sailors to a watery grave, but she surely is a beautiful woman.
