In the Studio – The Girl in the Purple dress

I recently posted about the girl in the peacock green dress, such a fabulous day in the studio, however we were not done. I had won this gorgeous dress in a bushfire relief auction and had been dying to use it in the studio, so Bec who is just so generous and giving of her…

In the Studio – The girl in the Peacock Green Dress

Before the studio was shut down indefinitely to the outside world, I was lucky to have two final, amazing sessions, this was one of them. So glad I managed to get them shot. Of course, I cannot wait to shoot more, but I guess that may have to wait. Many many years ago, I came…

Monday’s Musings…

Well that’s it apparently the world has gone crazy and each country has closed itself off from the rest of the world. Pretty easy for us Aussies and Kiwis but it does make for interesting times. I am still flying to Queensland, but only because I really want to see my daughter more than anything…

When ballerinas go bad

In case you missed it I did a lovely shoot with Emily recently who is a ballerina. At the end of the shoot, still dressed in her leotard and tutu, we got a little silly, a steampunk mask, smoke bubbles and two different coloured gel lights and creepy lighting…just love how it turned out so…

Oceanic Mermaids

Last week I was featuring some of the art I created from a recent group shoot, 30 photographers and two models. We were joined on the day by Jess Ami and Jess Garrett (at least their names were easy to remember lol). We occasionally do these big group shoots, so that there is a central…

In the studio – Steampunk

These are the final group of images from the recent Creative Portraits workshop I ran recently. We shot the girls separately in the two groups, and then at the end, while the weather was still favourable we took it outside. The area we were shooting in is in inner Melbourne city and very old. There…

Monday’s Musings…

This month is going to be crazy, so much on and next month won’t be much better. Friday Night saw us down at Half Moon Bay Life Saving Club in Mentone (Melbourne), with a couple of mermaids and about 30 photographers. The smoke haze was back (Yep, those fires are still burning away, just mostly…

In the studio – The Fairy Princess

What can I say about our beautiful Jess…she has been some pretty dark characters of late and I promised to make her ‘pretty’ again. Jess loves her pretty and does it so well, so why not a beautiful Fairy Princess. Jess is always a good sport and loves getting messy and dirty and covered in…
