Elegance………………

21 Jun

Elegance is a quality that is fast disappearing from our day-to-day lives.

The way people sit, the way we all lean against walls or desks, the way we dress…..

Yes, I know times have changed, mostly for the better of course, but occasionally it’s nice to see a return to the past.

Vash Te is one of those models that can pull off this olde world elegance and she can do it with ease………………

Photographic “Master chef” style program

17 Jun

The popularity of photography has not been lost on Australia’s government owned TV network.

The ABC, which has always had a strong focus (sorry..I couldn’t help it) on documentry/lifestyle shows has debuted this show “Photo Finish”

I wonder if, like so many successful ABC documentry style shows it will end up on the commercial networks as a platform for Nikon or Canon to showcase thier products.

At the end of the day, it should be a good thing for our artform, with more people realising that a great deal of skill and knowledge goes into a great picture !

Have a look and see what you think.

Behind the scenes…a new frontier !

14 Jun

Behind the scenes images or video is now sometimes more awaited than the actual shoot.

At fashion shows, I have had designers say “come back stage, I really want some candid black and whites” this is kinda strange considering they put so much effort into displaying the colour and vibrance of their garments.

Clients also enjoy some bts imagery from their shoots and recently instead of my wife taking on this role the awesome make up artist, Keeora stepped in.

Now we were in a dark studio and low light photography can be a challenge at best, so some of the images are best described as “arty”, but others have worked well and I got a kick out of looking at them.

Studio Fitness……..

12 Jun

I have been in a gym….actually last century (really) I was a bit of a gym junkie.

No more, but when I was asked to do a few shots of  fitness model I was worried.

Did she just want the normal sweaty machine seated shots ?………

No! was the answer, “I want to show just some muscle definition in a dark edgy lit studio”.

I can do that, and the results were just what she wanted….

……the behind the scenes taken by the MUA were fun too.
