Black and White for mood……….

28 Oct

Beauty is easy to capture.

The models I work with are all of course extremely beautiful women who embody grace and style.

But without fail you can’t beat Black and White for mood…………

The view over the Broadwater on the Gold Coast with model Alless…………

The last picture of the day……….

Fashionable Burleigh Heads here on the Gold Coast really has it all. We are far enough from the tourist hub not to be affected but close enough if we want a bit of glitz, we have cafes and restaurants and enough fashion boutiques to keep the look changing constantly.

The beach and the break on the point attract surfing royalty all year round and there is the most brilliant safe swimming beach for the family just around the headland.

This young body boarder was catching the last picture of her boyfriend surfing for the day………….

More studio fitness………………

being able to stand back and change the light is the benefit of being in a studio

Another one from a studio shoot…………..

Chaise lounge……..

Every house should have one, comfortable, stylish and great for photography.

Those of you that watch television will see examples of this classic style in every period movie and show.

We have one at home ready for the day that i can justify the expense of a studio.

I shot this image of Vashte whilst using the studio of Nicola Parsons Photography.

Excitement everywhere…………..

8 Jun

One of the things I enjoy about fashion shows is the level of excitement that is evident amongst the participants.

The organisers and designers are nervous, the make up artists are hurrying around, always smiling with that “nothing is too hard” attitude..

…and the models are smiling, chatting and laughing.

They are so excited they still laugh at my old jokes………

 

Strutting in the rain…………..

7 Jun

Real professionals can turn the worst situations into unique and memorable occasions that people talk about for ages.

Like the models at the local outdoor fashion event when a storm roared up the coast and dumped all its rain on the runway.

 

Dedication or stupidity?………………..

5 Jun

At the outdoor fashion show, Fashion on James(see more at http://www.facebook.com/andrewplacephotographyQld ) that I have blooged about, the weather was always going to be an issue.

A blast of winter had zoomed up the coast from colder climates and was drenching the whole region.

Backup plans were in place but they would be no where near as effective exposure for the streets traders, so with the little amount of sunshine that was around the show pressed on outdoors.

It was gret until the last half hour when the heavens opened.

The designer taht was still left to showcase her wares and the models got together and decided to push on, as the only two professional photographers present and with me covering for Fashion TV Australia ( http://www.facebook.com/fashionTVaustralia ) Joel Stafford and myself enlisted to willing mobile umbrella stands and kept shooting.

I got drenched but the Nikon stayed dry………………….

Captured Beauty………….

4 Jun

When you get the images from a fashion show up on your Mac (you do use a Mac, don’t you?) there is a parade (sorry, pun intended) of similar images to process, and that is okay, after all they are a showcase for designers collections.

These parades are of course populated by beautiful, stylish models with fantastic make up and hair.

As the photographer, you are there to capture the garment or whatever is being displayed.

I have to say, I struggle to stay focussed and my lens quite often strays to outstanding beauty.
