Life happens and we get busy doing the things that we are in a routine to do from day today. Beauty is amongst our daily grind and I think that’s important to notice these things at the start, during the day and towards the end of the day.
As much as I love shooting and making images, which I pretty much do every day, I don’t always make the time to put together the posts that I’d like to onto Instagram or Facebook.
So I have a few images that I will start sharing in the next week, a little bit of behind the scenes, check the stories and yeah by all means reach out to me and I’d love to hear any struggles you have. No only that, I am so keen to communicate and collaborate, especially in my home town or places I travel to.
This weekend in Townsville, the following weekend Yeppoon and attempt to convince a couple of people to jump in front of my lens and make something special happen.
The thing is, everybody is special and it’s just a matter discovering that little place where the look in the camera has a story to go with it - and that’s what really drives me to capture portraits.
Sometimes looking through the lens and you know that’s a keeper image. It’s just exciting and I feed off of it, and the person in front of the lens feels, and becomes more giving and accepting as they may never have seen themselves looking so amazing, different. It’s so empowering and so exhilarating to the subject, and yes to me to see what can unfold.
Ruby had her hair in few different ways, but I liked the way it just fell casually across her face as we moved from look to look. Ruby is such a talent, see the story and listen to us in the little video clip as we got closer to the end of the image making session.
