So recently on Instagram I made pledge to eat more pizza and do more shoots. Well “Pizza Mondays” are now a thing in our household…
While eating pizza and discussing Avengers — Age of Ultron with Spadgerina we noted how similar her hair was to Natasha Romanoff’s — we also realised that she still had a black catsuit from a previous shoot. The stars were aligning.
Dead Girl x Mary Choppins!
Had an awesome time doing two Halloween shoots in one last week! Dead Girl featuing Spadgerina & Mary Choppins featuring Rosie & Robyn! Happy Halloween!
I’ve been doing an awful lot of client work lately, and thats lead to a dramatic decrease in the amount of images I’ve been sharing. Not because I can’t share the shots, more because… where does time even go? My lady & I put an end to that last night by having a few hours of […]
Daydream In Blue
She & I spent a few days at the cabin in the woods over the weekend. In between coffee on the balcony & trips to the beach we made some time for a few photos.
Enjoy The Little Things
Well 2013 has been an interesting year to say the least. Ups & downs, back & fourths… you know how it’s been. I’m not big on New Years resolutions, I never have been, but for 2014 I am going to try to enjoy the little things more.
My friend Daniel is a pretty awesome illustrator, the kind of illustrator that likes to draw axes & beards as well as beards & axes. At the end of last month I did a quick promo shoot for him in the attic of our favourite local independent coffee shop.
Maid In The Mist
“There’s a smoke machine in the other room if you want to use it?” Erm… yes! Yes I do want to use it! I want to take a photo in the dark! With lights & candles & drama & aweomeness. So we made this.
Shooting in extremely bright midday sunlight is always a challenge, harsh shadows & ever-changing lighting don’t help the situation. It’s even more ambitious when you want to balance/fight the sun by adding a flash or three. I wanted to get a super bright, almost dreamy, backdrop so I wanted to shoot from a shaded area with a few trees for framing & then use strobes to even that out with the rest of the scene.
Leah / Warehouse Part Two
Another small set of Leah from yesterdays shoot, but with a really different feel. I used two softboxes almost paralel to the wall, this gave me a really large spread of soft light. I then shot along the wall to get a profile with lots of depth & contrast. That helped to bring out a lot of detail & give the location some verticality.
