Winter Workshops – Carnival of Darkness Conceptual Portraits

For me, Winter is the height of the workshop season, as it is cold and wet and people prefer to be inside, my long anticipated Conceptual Workshop for this season was finally here. Sold out, of course. Beautiful Jess was our model and we played predominately with lighting, posing and direction, with an emphasis on…

In the Studio – The Red Queen

When I worked with Gemma on the Great Gatsby shoot, we discussed another collaboration for an idea I had, that would involve some of Gemma’s Fire Twirler/Breather talents. I had ordered the costume and had been waiting for it to arrive, before setting a date. The items came quite quickly and when I contacted Gemma,…

Still Life in the Studio – Dark and Moody

Spent a few hours in the Studio working on some new Dark and Moody for fun and ideas for an upcoming workshop. I adore the Eiffel Tower and florals on black perspex, such fantastic reflections, the red chillies were fun and the sugar on the strawberry, loads of fun, but so, SO messy!! I hope…

Fabulous Friday – High Tea

A friend of mine recently bought me this oh so sweet oversized teacup and saucer, so pretty in pale green and florals; how could I resist a quick photo session? Shot on black perspex, with some pretty silk roses and my little concrete bird. Love the reflections as well. I seem to be going ga-ga…

Tuesday’s Textures – Urban Jungle

I created this piece of art just for fun, the model image is by Caroline Julia Moore (I have her permission). I even wrote a short story to go with it, it’s been far too long.  Through some of the smoke haze that was beginning to clear, she could see the shattered remnants of the…

Tuesday Textures – Art of Tasmania

After I finally got through a quick edit of most of the photos from our trip to Tasmania, I went back and re-edited a few images, giving a more painterly feel and in the case of Bridestowe, adding some lavender, which was sadly missing when we visited. I really wanted the keep the warmth and…

Share Your World – 12th June 2018

Some hard-hitting questions from Cee this week for SYW, I had to take a little extra time to think about these ones, thanks Cee, great topics. If you could choose any person from history to be your imaginary friend, who would it be and why? That’s a tough one, it would need to be someone creative,…

Tuesday’s Textures…

They often tell me I am Brave and Creative and Imaginative, and perhaps I am. But I often just see myself as inquisitive,  but shy and scared. “Fear is the Dream Killer” – Seth Godin  This is so true, there were times when I did not do something because I feared people would ridicule me,…
