The Key to My Heart

Have you ever been in love? Or been in love with the idea of love? The butterflies in your stomach threatening to escape. Your heart beating so loudly, you fear it can be heard in the next room? The object of your affection and obsession walks into the room, you wish to hide and become…

Winter Workshops – VPC Dark and Moody Fruit

I recently ran a Still Life workshop for my photography group, Victorian Photographers Collective. I enjoy the opportunity to give back to my community, as I have gained so much knowledge, insight, friendship and experiences through this group. The fact that I can offer 1/2 price workshops is a bonus for them as well. Not…

In the Studio – Working with Designers

I saw an Instagram post, maybe 1 or 2 years ago from a Melbourne based Designer Miss Krissy Tee, I adored her stuff from the start and have followed her ever since. You could say it was love at first sight. Krissy then started following me and commented she would love to work with me…

Tuesdays of Texture – Once I was whole.

I was once whole, I was once me – whoever Me is? How do we end up where we do? I don’t even think the bits and pieces were stolen or given away, I think just we misplace them. Who do you see when you look in the mirror? I look in the mirror and…

In the Studio – Karen’s Sneak Peek

Fabulous Friday – I’ve Leeked

No, I did not spell it wrong, I have in fact leeked, well deconstructed a leek in any case. Oh, the things we do for art… This was actually a little harder than I anticipated, this is not several leeks on the same perspex,  it is one leek in different stages of deconstruction. Desley and I…

Monday Musings

Another week, another shoot, only one but such a massive day we did 7 concepts in one day, different costumes, different makeup, mostly just two sets. This is just a tiny taste of just how awesome it was. Actually, we had no idea WHAT to call this shoot so it got nicknamed our Awesome day…

Regular Random – Red, Red Roses

I recently bought some red roses and used them for several things, including a workshop. They were just so beautiful I had to do a quick 5 minutes on the white perspex, for some added simplicity… Shot on Sony a7ii on either ISO 50 or 100, 30mm F/5.0, shot with a Strobe on white perspex,…

In the Studio – Dark Romance

What can start as a spark of an idea can literally burn bright with passion, as was the case with the shoot. Two models, plus me and a Hair and Makeup artist, all who work at least part-time, plus family etc, trying to find a time that suited us all was difficult, so we ended…
