Autumn Workshops – Macro in the gardens

Even though I had visited Cloudehill recently and I often do, at least 3-4 times a year, maybe even more. I still went back a few days later. You see I had a workshop planned a few weeks back, which was postponed several times due to poor weather. I was a bit worried about postponing…

In the studio – Sleeping Beauty #2

I know I shared sometime back in February the Sleeping Beauty studio shoot I did with Jesi Faun, this was our second shoot together. It was so popular, I was asked to run it as a workshop, which I did recently. As you will see from some of the images I took, not much changed,…

Autumn Workshops – Steam Punk with Alexia

I have always had a fascination with Steampunk, I adore working with it in the studio. I guess many people do, as my Steam Punk workshops are often sold out. This one sure was. We were really lucky with the weather again and could leave the main doors open for most of the workshop. Gives…

Summer Workshops – 1920’s with Emily

Recently I had a whole weekend of 1920’s inspired shoots, just a coincidence, but still so much fun. I ran a workshop with Emily, one that had been postponed since March 2020, thanks to you know who! Finally we managed to get it done. It was a small group in between lockdowns, but glad to…

Summer Workshops – Still Life

I recently ran my first Still Life workshop in quite a while, it was lovely to get back to basics. Initially, I thought it may not go ahead, due to poor bookings, but a week before the class it was full with a waitlist, funny how things work out. One of the ladies (and this…

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…

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…

In the studio – Ice Princess

I recently ran a huge workshop for Creative Fantasy Portraits, we went all out, I need to offer something different to what is currently on offer. Being Summer there has been some bikini portrait and sports attire shoots (not my thing) and some nudes (yes I shoot nudes, but I prefer a more artistic approach).…

Monday’s Musings…

Yesterday was my first official day with the studio open for workshops for 2020. Like they say go big or go home? We had two models with two costume changes each, plus an outdoor shoot, so essentially 5 mini shoots in one afternoon workshop. It was organised chaos and very hectic, but loads of fun.…
