Captain Cook & Cockatoo feathers: Botany Bay

A recent tag on instagram reminded me of this wonderful shoot I had with Geoffrey Cutts when I was in Australia (again!) at the end of last year.

This was such an enjoyable shoot for me – definitely one of my favourites of the trip – in part because it involved quite a bit of sightseeing along the way as well as great company in the sunshine. I’d worked with Geoff on a previous trip and knew how relaxed and friendly he was, and particularly remember really enjoying the leisurely pace and opportunity to explore the area around Botany Bay National Park… and marvel at stray cockatoo feathers.

Piano & Leaves

Catching up again… This time with a little handful of images by David, who I remember had an enviable poetry collection in his home as well as a load of creative enthusiasm. I love the moody whimsy in the first shot here, and everyone knows I can’t keep away from pianos. (…And I suppose the same can be said forΒ leaves, this last being a clue as to my occasional absences here!).

I’m having what feels like the first concetrated ‘modelling admin’ day in forever, keen to book a few more shoots in Holland this summer and in July onwards. I model just a handful of days per month, now, so do catch me if you can! πŸ™‚

Yellow Flowers in Iceland

… & lupins and Christmas trees!

If you’ve been following this blog, you’ve hopefully already seen two blog posts from my wonderful adventure to Iceland with Alex Nason, Bragi Kort and fellow model Lucy Magdalene.

I posted:
– ‘Black Rocks, Snow & Rushing Water
– ‘A Herring Factory, a Piano & a Window

And now here’s a little post with images taken of me posing in some of Iceland’s vegetation – flowers & trees. These are all by Bragi Kort.

Byron Light

Cam Attree has got to be one of the most amazing photographers I’ve worked with and I’ve been lucky enough to have done so multiple times over the years – he points to a bit of driftwood, says he reckons it could look good and five seconds later he’s made magic. Typical. It’s partly down to waiting for the light to be perfect, of course.

These are from a very quick session at a beautiful beach in Byron, Australia, taken at the end of last year.

Botticelli dreams + 3D rock textures

I love these shots by Stephen Wong (creator of the free digital magazine celebrating the artistry of nudes, ION magazine), taken when I was in Sydney recently. It’s at a location I’ve been to many times (I think I’ve now been to Australia about 6 times and almost every time had at least one shoot in this spectacular spot!), but each time has been different, and Stephen definitely made the most of the incredible rock structures. I love the textures and incredible dips, grooves and colours as well as the warm glow that shines through the final edits. It was a really windy day and I was DEEPLY jetlagged after just flying in from England (I have been told my phonecalls home were making very little sense), but it was such a good shoot and I threw myself into what felt like channelling some kind of Botticelli/Venus situation.

Stephen had such a cool set up to create some 3D images, of which I’ll include a few (at the end of the post), but also sent me plenty of the single images too. He sent me off with a few pairs of 3D glasses so I could see his results once he sent them through to me – one of those ‘my job is so cool’ moments, and hey, it’s a bonus that the glasses look so fetching… πŸ™‚

The Grapes of Wrap (dress)

To warm us all up (I am particularly addressing my fellow northern-hemisphereans, here, and if tomorrow’s snow forecast is anything to go by we need all the help we can get), here are some images taken in the balmier, English countryside with Stuart Johnson, who was a pleasure to model for in these beautiful locations. Some of these images have already seeped into my instagram account, but it’s lovely to show a fuller collection. I felt like I was in the south of France for some of this shoot – so good to look back on now!

By the way, many of the images in this post are unedited – in fact I believe most are straight from camera. I actually think this sort of suits the carefree vibes we ended up doing.

The god of the Tiber river

I had SUCH a nice shoot (as always) with Imagesse in September last year. We drove from different ends of the country to meet in Wiltshire at a beautiful estate, and it was such a pleasure to explore and see what images we could come up with there and in some nearby locations. I even got to sit in Poseidon’s lap (well, I was absolutely convinced it was Poseidon, silly me making assumptions based on the beautiful lake we were next to, but we later researched and discovered it was the god of the Tiber river!). Looking forward to working with Imagesse again (along with another favourite photographer and a beautiful model friend) in Cornwall in May. πŸ™‚
