Mondays Musings…

Last week was such a busy week, I did a Vampire inspired Couples Shoot with Jess and a new model Dragon Night – now there is an interesting character, I will fill you in on that soon. It was a mid-week evening shoot, which I normally don’t do, but with so many creatives and work…

Regular Random – Kitchen Kitcsh #2

So last weekend I featured some little Americana Folk Art dolls and some kitchen kitsch, I couldn’t just leave it there, they even made a brief appearance here too. I adore just fiddling and moving and readjusting things, I know it drives some people to tears, but I love it. I also played with some…

Fabulous Friday

No flowers today, but how fabulous are these? Some sticks and seedpods I found in the studio, completely forgot I had them hidden away. Set them up on some white perspex and a studio light…voila! I love the textural elements and the interesting shadows. Stark almost black and white feel to the images, even though…

In the Studio – The Great Gatsby

This is something I have been wanting to try my hand at for a while – The Great Gatsby, you know the story written by F. Scott Fitzgerald about the roaring 1920’s Jazz Music and Flapper dresses, I adore the movie with Leonardo DiCaprio by Baz Lurman – I adored the old school glitz and…

Winter Outings – Pirianda Gardens

Located on Hacketts Road, Olinda is the quiet and unassuming Pirianda Gardens. We have not visited this site before and had not even heard of it, even though we must have driven past this road 100s of times before. It is right near the RJ Hamer Arboretum, which is the easy way in on this dirt track.…

Monday Musings…

I had a fairly quiet weekend by all accounts, I did paint a rather large canvas backdrop for an upcoming workshop, it was arduous and time-consuming, but I think hopefully worth it, my aching muscles still do not quite agree! I also made a full-length tulle skirt, for the same workshop and probably many others…

Regular Random – Kitchen Kitcsh

I have owned these two tiny American Folk Art Angels for many, many years. I have never photographed them before, but I was tidying up in the kitchen and moved them to put something away, I picked them up and looked at them, so sweet, so kitsch, surely they deserved their 5 minutes of fame?…

Fridays Flowers

Sadly no fresh flowers, I would have bought some, but this shoot was on the fly, while waiting for a client and I had to use my collection of dried flowers, still so pretty. I had this lovely new backdrop I had not had a chance to play with as yet, it’s part of a…

In the Studio – Introducing Zed Archibald

I had a call from one of my makeup artists’ Ally “Julz, you need to meet this kid Zed, he’s cool and I think he’ll be really cool to work with, he’s just started to get into modelling”. So I am like “send me his pic and some ideas and let’s see what works”. Zed (his…
