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…

Why do I create?

What is it to be Consumed by One’s passion? Why do we do what we do, is there a tangible Why for everyone? I was asked recently WHY I do what I do, HOW I do what I do, and to put into words exactly WHAT it is that I do, and I don’t mean…

Tuesdays Textures – Dreaming of Summer

The base photo for this image was taken of Jess in the studio, I knew I wanted to do something a little different but initially was not quite sure what. I through around a few ideas. I wanted the mirror to be a portal to another world, another time or location. Both are taken at…

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,…

In the Studio – Beauty and The Beast Pt 2

Jess had bought herself a Belle dress and really wanted to do a Disney Princess inspired studio session. Micaela joined us for the hair and make-up, so the team was back together again. We did have a little trouble with our Beast, after a few failed attempts with male models, Moth got roped into it. …

Tuesday’s Textures…

Going back a little to my Composite days on this one, I had this idea of photographing some of the outfits from the studio wardrobe on mannequins, then removing the mannequins and creating a fantasy sequence.
