Brisbane Cultural Centre Fashion Shoot

I’ve always found the architecture by Robin Gibson at Brisbane’s Cultural centre a formalist’s dream. For ages now I’ve been wanting to do some sort of shoot here, and last week I was lucky enough to have this chance. One of my creative advertising assignments required me to create a lookbook for a fashion label.

Collaborating with Brisbane based fashion label Beau In The Woods, who provided the garments, the shoot went underway last Monday.

A big thanks to Beau In The Woods, model Meghan Andersen, makeup artist Molly Dunkle from Dunkle Authentic and Arts Queensland for giving me access to the site.

Looking Back

This house once stood a couple of doors down from mine. One day it just vanished.

Vanished

The shot of the house was taken almost two years ago. The shot of the empty block I shot just a couple hours ago. Both were taken in almost exactly the same position with the same lens (Nikon 50mm 1.8 G).  The extra coverage is due to a recent upgrade to full frame.

Vintage Sunbathing Fashion Shoot

The time has come! Dangerously close to the end of the uni year and I’m desperately trying to get together a folio to present as my last assignment for “Illustrative Studio Techniques” .

The assignment calls for 4 shots: a character portrait, fashion shot, studio set, and a still life. They all should be linked with a theme of some sort.

As usual I left the planning to the very last minute. I figured “incongruity” was a suitably flexible theme for a man on deadline.

This is the first shoot and should tick the “fashion” box. I’m very pleased with it and can’t thank Emily enough for being such a fantastic model. A photographer/graphic designer herself you can see her work here: http://emily-jayne.net/

Jeffrey Smart Tribute

I’ve always loved Jeffery Smart’s work. There seems to be a piercingly truthful element to his architectural paintings. He doesn’t produce this sense of verisimilitude by simply revealing the hidden flaws of our infrastructure, instead he forces us to gaze onto something we have been trained to ignore, highlighting the beauty that nestles within all sad scenes. It’s not a new concept at all, but I think he did it well.

I took this on my way to work in the morning with him in mind.

Wide eye on Brisbane

Ever since the switch to full frame Iv not had a compatible wide angle lens to play with and consequently forgotten how much fun they can be. A few weeks ago I found what I thought to be quite a bargain on ebay, a second hand nikon mount ,sigma, fixed 18mm f/3.5 lens. It finally arrived and, although the explanations for its low asking price are endlessly revealing themselves, I’m having fun with it. These are a few I took today after dropping off some film to Big W. The first one is a .gif so may take a sec to load.
