October’s Blue Ring Octopus

Shoot numero one in Australia and I’m already being educated about their wild and wonderful creatures. Blue octopi (extraordinarily pretty, but not particularly friendly) hang out in tide pools, etc.. I didn’t actually spot one but after they were mentioned on this lovely little shoot with photographer Geoffrey Cutts, I kept an eye out! I love Australian shoots – every moment is a wildlife lesson. And, alarmingly often, the creatures they describe are not actually made up.

I’d actually modelled at this particular location a few times before, but it seems that every time I’m there, the water revs up and goes crazy, which makes for some dramatic shots. I’m going to just assume it’s because I’m extremely powerful – some kind of magnetic force. 🙂

Well, to avoid this post seeming like clickbait, here’s a blue octopus so no one is disappointed:

And here are a few of Geoff’s photos of me. We had a lovely time – I really enjoyed it! 🙂
