Ekala… truly Super !!

12 May

Yes, I have worked with Ekala before!

She is truly a model that I would be happy to shoot everyday.

Ekala is a true chameleon, a new outfit, different hair and make up and she takes on whole new look and genre…effortlessly.

We shoot for FashionGC this time and you can see the whole post at http://www.fashiongc.com.au/winter-warmers/

Playing with Nik Silver Efex is addictive.

Black and White Beach……

I have downloaded the trial version of Nik Silver FX because after much discussion I have been assured that its the B&W converter to have…

Quite simply, I love it.

Here is one from this morning, Black and White Beach…..

Black and White Beach….

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…………

Sometimes an image has far more impact if there is a range of contrast instead of colour…………

Sunrise textures………..

14 May

I went for a walk the other morning, more to enjoy the beautiful weather than to capture anything special.

But those of you that take pictures will understand that after a while your eyes become a view finder and you start looking at the world around you as potential images.

As I walked across the sands at low tide, past a spot that my family swim at regularly, I noticed the shadows, lines in the bridge and the waves in the exposed sand.

I was compelled to capture and share these Sunrise Textures…………


Surfing in clouds………

6 May

During a little photo-walk this morning with videographer Nathan from DreamSpace productions, we ended up shooting on the rocks at Currumbin Beach.

The tide was high and the swell was up, there were surfers coming from everywhere to get into the action.

The normal entry points off the rocks were constantly getting covered by the heavy swell and this left many surfers contemplating the best way to join the fun…………………..

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.


Black and White Beauty………..

Another from the shoot with the beautiful Alless.

She liked the idea of something moody and fashionable, this was taken before she entered the swamp (see the previous post).

Monochrome beauty……….

14 Apr

Yep, I am a sucker for monochrome. Colour can add dimension, display tragedy, portray joy and happiness but for me the simplicity of black and white removes distraction and allows the viewer to focus on the subject.

Be it a capture of age, feeling or as in this case beauty there are no filters, no curtains to peer through, you are just presented with the image and then you, the viewer can interpret the image without interference or corruption.

A lot heavier than my standard posts I know, but for me monochrome is special, not something to be used all the time, not a fashion fad, not arty, just plain and simply beautiful.
