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.
The third in my series of time images; it seems easy to let time control you, have you ever felt that way?
The second in my series of 'Time' images, do you hold on to time, are you looking backwards rather than forwards? These were my thoughts in making this image.
I have trying to put together a series images based around time. This was my first image and it turned out much less dark than some of the others have. It is easier to be happy when you are in control of time rather than time controlling you.
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.
For the last few years I have entered images into the PSNZ National Exhibition, and have been lucky enough to have a number of images selected for the exhibition. This year I was awarded a bronze medal for this composite image made with the help of some lovely Cosplayers.
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.
This is one from a series of images I am working on with some of the amazing cosplayers in and around Christchurch.
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.
A simple portrait of the lovely Siobhan shot with a strobe in the forest.
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.
