Monday Musings…

I am exhausted, a huge week at work, last week, followed by a huge weekend. After spending Friday evening booking flights and hire cars etc, for our trip to Brisbane to see our youngest daughter and her Husband, and then vegetating on the couch in sheer exhaustion. We were up early and running around on…

The creation of Rapunzel #1

This week, I thought I would do something a little different for In the Studio and write a behind the scenes for a recent shoot I did on location in Victoria’s Redwood Forest in East Warburton.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Experimental

This week’s WPC theme is Experimental, as most of you are aware a lot of my photography, especially my Conceptual Portraits are quite experimental, but generally, through careful planning and sketches, mood boards and the like they come out as I have imagined them.
