Last weekend I was invited to a photo shoot organised by aLauren Payne, an MUA (make up artist) I had wanted to work with. Initially it was just to catch up and talk briefly about availability and make up styling, but at the last minute I decided to take part in the group shoot. The theme was “rainbow” and most of the looks were incredibly colourful, dramatic and overtop, which was exactly the kind of look that I needed. I arrived quite late in the day so I quickly setup some basic lighting and grabbed all the models who weren’t busy and did some quick close up beauty shots. Heres some shots from the day, thanks to all the models and make up artists who took part in all this and we’ll see you next time 🙂
Some time late last year I did a photoshoot inspired by the story of the ‘Snow Queen’. Originally this shoot was supposed to take place in autumn last year but due to the other photographers and models busy schedule I had to shift the shooting time to later in December. Along the way a few things needed to be altered to the design/concept since originally I had come up with the idea in autumn, the concept consisted of more layers, furs, jewellery and such. Unfortunately since the shoot was moved to December (which by then we were experiencing summer) alterations had to be made to the initial idea so I had to come up with a new substitute for the shoot. Over the last weeks of putting everything together we finally did the shoot on a lovely hot 36 degree day and after several hours of make up and styling we got our shots in under an hour.
Thanks goes to Siera who was my lovely model and to the incredible Marina Pi who did the hair and make up on the day.
Phew it was a long day but had lots of fun with great company and good times. Below are some BTS shots as well as the final shots from the day. Enjoy!!!

Over the weekend, “One Day in Paradise” decided to hold a make up day for the Lolita’s in Melbourne. We all met up at Melbourne City Myers at the Illamasqua make up department where the talented make up artists began their work. I shot some video and took some pictures of the beautiful transformations and had a lovely chit chat with the girls and oggled at the amazing make up. Here are some shots from the day.
You can see the rest here on my flickr site. I’ll be posting up the video soon once I do a quick edit.
