The Road



I changed my shooting style for this shoot. I can see it working with retail. The desaturated look and her chill pose and the white in the sky which was intentionally blown out because pretty blue was too...pretty.


Model - Lia Forrest

    These blue doors are famous. They are attached to a studio at Trentham Racecourse run by my friend Porio Maka-Kea. I used to have half of the studio but have since moved on. These doors have been shot by many photographers over the years. This was my turn with Alex. I'll never forget that Alex insisted we shoot outside. After shooting in studio for a little while and heading out I saw her blossom and my favorite photo from the shoot was this one. Model - Alexandra McEwen Coat - Courtesy of Vanessa Forlong

    Countdown Supermarket Newtown Is where you will find this location. I had it in my head for years but never got tried it. Brittany and I were going up and down and up and down... When the doors opened we just stood there staring at the shoppers laughing and went back down, or back up until we had our photos. I thought how the light bounced around with the silver shiney was awesome. It was a great day and so much fun. These are some of the reasons I love fashion photography. Model - Brittany Gilchrist

    We had decided on a grunge themed shoot and were wandering around the city center in Palmerston North looking for grungy things to go with the Doc Martins we had borrowed from one of the other photographers. Jaime is 17. She mentioned that modelling was a goal for her. She has a super supportive mum too. I will agree that Jaime has that X factor. You can tell when you bring the camera up and look through the viewfinder. The models faces have this "go to" face that they turn on when you raise the camera. It's just for you and not many people get to see it. Between the day of me writing this and taking the photo Jaime has been signed by Red 11 Model Management, one of New Zealands best agencies. I'm so proud and very happy for her. Model - Jaime Mayberry HMUA - Ania Scott Doc Martens - Courtesy of Kelly Zinsli
