You’ll be the first to know about my brand new fashion website being launched at the end of October! Yay!
I’ll give access to a whole bunch of fashion tips, podcast interviews and latest photos!
Last night I took some fashion photography at the MSIT Fashion – Modaitalia Preliminary Judging. This is the first round of the Modaitalia event which will conclude next month.
65 entries were on display with only 20 of these going through to the final. After which, one lucky student will be chosen to do a summer course at Polimoda a famous italian fashion house in Italy.
It’s basically been one year since I first did a fashion parade photo shoot at MSIT, and check out my fashion category to see the difference in both the parade production… and my photo quality! Astounding in both instances! Last years pics here.
Congratulations to the 20 students that went through! I’ll see you at the final in October.
Check out the Fashion Photography from the night here.
Modaitalia is an Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry QLD event

I got a call during the week from an editor of The Daily Mercury, a newspaper in Mackay to use one of my photos for an article on a fashion design student from QUT. They requested three photos for consideration from a shoot I did at the QUT Fashion Graduate parade in 2006.
I’ll post the PDF of the article when I get a chance later… or will I?
A couple of months ago, I was approached by the agency who is doing the EKKA campaigns to purchase some fashion photography from a parade I did.
Today I saw the photo at a bus shelter on Gregory Terrace in Spring Hill, then again on College Rd on some street banners heading towards Hale St.
Here is the photo that they chose, it wasn’t one of my best photos, but it did look good with some graphics around it.
Anyways, I was definitely curious as to how it would be used and I think it looks great what Axis Campaigns have done with it.
I did a fashion photography shoot up at Buderim on the Sunshine Coast a couple of weeks ago for my new friend Katie Gannon from Mother Maria. I also did some photos for Katie’s sister Krista from Australian Flavour.
The shot above was a spontaneous shot where the model Phoebe was standing there keeping warm from the cool breeze through the trees. The lighting and composition was already set and I had to just take the shot. If you have a look at the gallery you will see that there is another version where you can see the sun peek through the trees. I like them both equally.
The location was at a park at Buderim, with some great big trees all lined up and it gave some really interesting (and hard to work with) lighting. I used an external flash bounced off a reflector board most of the day to give just enough fill whilst still allowing natural lighting.
I use my Canon 5D and a 85mm 1.8 Lens most of the day and I was able to get some really sharp photos, particularly when the sun went down and we were getting some shots outside of the park and in the playground and in front of the trees. The shot above is an example of that.
The photo above is with both models at the end, and Katie next to me on the left and her sister Krista the right in the photo.
It was great working with these girls, they made it a fun day to shoot and it’s great getting to know Katie and Krista.

Last night I was invited to shoot at the Ethical Fashion Showcase at Jorge in Brisbane.
This event was a showcase of some of the hot Australian fashion designers such as Maiocchi, Romance was born, Limedrop, Poke, Mother Mania, Two Beat Tremble, One Colour and more. Demonstrating that making ethical decisions in fashion doesn’t mean you can’t create amazing designs. Organised to provoke the thoughts of consumers, designers and manufacturers alike the idea that using humane methods of production and environmentally responsible products can be quite innovative and stylish.
With Channel 9′s Melissa Downes presenting, this was an event organised by the Queensland Fair Trade Collective as part of the Fair Trade Association of Australia and New Zealand.
Once again I got to shoot the beautiful Diana (Dee-anna) Rodriguez, whom i’ve worked with quite a few times now. Diana is part of the Viviens Models agency.
How I actually found out this event was from meeting another beautiful girl in Tarquin whom I met at the Southbank markets after she tried to sell me a headband. She sent me the invite and after getting the ok to shoot from Kelly from the Queensland Fair Trade Collective, I was on my way. So once again proving that networking opportunities are everywhere!
I had a quick look at some other designers who are working both ethically and concious of the environment I found this post about Nudie organic denim jeans on the kitmeout.com fashion blog. Check it out, there are some interesting posts and articles on there.

About these photos, I was using my external flash as it was quite dark. Most shots were taken at ISO800 at 1/200sec and f5.6 However that first 5 or so shots taken were taken at f2.5 but my flash position (bounced off the roof) caused unwanted shadow which is why I changed to bouncing the flash off the wall instead.
