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… 🙂

The sea sees me

These photos were taken in Fuerteventura in Dec by Jeremy Howitt (who wins awards for not being bored of me after so many shoots and wanting to photograph me so much in so many places; it’s a joy!). It was a quick whirlwind of a trip for me, a few days in the heat and dunes – I was actually horribly ill during this trip and struggling to breathe/function, but I don’t think you can tell. I really do consider myself to have had great luck with my modelling in terms of what I’ve experienced. SO grateful for these opportunities! I’m finding it quite a balancing act at the moment while going in multiple directions, but I will always want to come back to this sort of thing and say yes to as many things as I can.

And it’s a great, visceral pleasure for me to pose in and around water – flowing, peaceful and wild.
