A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to work with an amazing makeup artist, Angela Pethig, along with a lovely model Jordan. The plan was to do some Black and White portraits and we managed a variety of different looks using found material and objects. Most images were processed as monochrome but some looked good in colour as well :-)
I love old movies and the look of film noir, a few months ago I worked with the lovely Rebecca Noir and makeup up artists Khaela Scott to have a play with the genre.
Here a few of the other images from the shoot.
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to shoot the lovely India Marie Rehwa, currently taking part in Miss 5 Crowns New Zealand great fun to work with and we tried a variety of lighting variations and props. This was one of favourites in the end.
I also liked this in colour.
I had a bit of fun with a portrait of the lovely Georgia Baynon and an image from Moria Gate Arch at Karamea on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand.
A simple natural light portrait of the lovely Georgia taken on a natural light workshop run by Scott Fowler. A fun day with lovely models and lots of different options to try. This was taken with window light a 50mm lens.
Another shot from a fun shoot at Sumner Beach standing in for Themyscira with the gorgeous Christine Cosgrove as Wonder Woman.
This is from a great shoot at Sumner Beach with the lovely Christine Cosgrove as Wonder Woman.
Something different again, I did a shoot with the lovely Amanda and at the end we did a few hair flicks just for fun. It gives quite an interesting look I think.
A bit of fun with some images from a recent shoot, a great location.
A composite image; something I had thought about a while ago and finally had a go at making.
The lovely Siobhan was kind enough to model for me a few weeks ago, I liked the motion produced by the veil I liked this image, to me it gives the feeling of being trapped by the veil and with the wedding dress an interesting combination.
This is from a fun shoot with a lovely model and dancer Yan Zhou, great fun to work with. A group of us went out to the Re:Start Mall in Christchurch and played with a range of locations, outfits and lighting. This is one image I liked.
Another image from a recent model shoot with the lovely Yan Zhou, a great location and this is really a draft version of an image I wanted to make.
Over the last couple of months I have been working on some different things, working with models learning more about lighting and starting to add some more conceptual images to my portfolio. A slow but interesting process which will continue for some time. This is one image from a set I took in a local forest with the help of the lovely Siobhan Cuttance and thanks for lots of assistance Moray, Cheryl, Pauline and Julia.
Over the last few weeks I have been working on different types of images, as a learning process and to stretch myself a bit. I have worked with some wonderful people in a variety of locations and will share a few of the results over the next few weeks. This first image is of the lovely Yan Zhou at Godley Head just outside Christchurch. I actually used a flash in a large softbox just outside the window on this occasion as it was getting a little dark.
