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………………….

Storm approaching…….

21 May

Surfing seems to be a funny sport, at a Tennis match if it rains, the game stops, Racing drivers don’t like rain, Cricket stops for rain and yet surfers leap from the VW Kombis and head for the sea in search of the rapidly building swell.

Stormy weather…………….

1 May

Just a little seascape. I will be shooting a location shot with models near here on the weekend……please don’t rain!!

 

Misty Weather………..

29 Apr

………..well, the Gold Coast version of it anyway.

We have had over 4 inches of rain in the last day or so, and I think that will do.

Outdoor shoots have had to be put off and even a simple walk to the shops with my daughter saw us a arrive a little damp.

I did manage to roll out of bed at 5.00am and scout around for a location for an upcoming location shoot.

Grey skies with misty rain on and off chased me home to a nice warm coffee.

 

Cancelled…………

15 Apr

Yep, a concept shoot for  a  Gold Coast model was sabotaged by the weather.

We had selected several locations to help her achieve the result she was looking for, ranging from parks with buildings being reclaimed by nature to waterfalls, yep it was going to be an epic!

Never mind we have rescheduled and will obtain some great images.

Here is on from an earlier shoot with another fashionable Gold Coast beauty, Kristina.

Pin up Style……

13 Mar

Pin up is one of my all time favorites.

Fun, classy and sexy has to be a winning combination.

The fantastic Naomi posed for us recently, and even though the weather ended the shoot early, we still managed to grab a couple of great images.

Many more too come.
