Cold And Shitty But I Don’t Care!!

After what seemed like a full day yesterday of hoping it would rain and the sun shining through, the rain finally did come toward the end of our shoot yesterday. Yay!!!!!

The rain fell and we rejoiced!!

We must of seemed like a gang of weirdos as we all stood around in the rain cheering as it got heavier and heavier.  And then the cheering turned into chattering teeth and what was the real heavy rain that we wanted hours before. Ha ha ha ha

I must say it was the heaviest rain I have ever shot in and I used to shoot a lot of equestrian……  The rain on me and my gear was so heavy that I couldn’t see the LCD on the back of my camera. I kept wiping the water off but it was very quickly replaced with rain either from the sky or the rain falling off my face.  Lol

At that my friends is why I have weather sealed pro photographic gear.

The people that I was with yesterday are true professionals…. Man…. I do a lot of crazy shit to get my shots but I do it because I love what I do!!! To find a collection of people that were not only willing to help me pull off my concept yesterday and see it thought in horrid conditions was just truly amazing.

The one downer of yesterday was that my dear friend and personal makeup artist (that kinda sounds like I get makeup on me) got her phone stolen out of her handbag.  A hand bag that was sitting with us all the time and would of had someone not a few meters from it at any one time. 🙁

I hope who ever took it gets their armpits infected with a million fleas…….  How dare they take our shit off our set….. Grrrrr.

Even after she noticed  it was gone she was the perfect professional, and kept on with a smile. 🙂

Enjoy your day everyone!!!! As for me I will tucked away inside, on a heater, in front of a computer screen working through photos. Yay…

The glitter Queen

I’m not sure how many of you out there have actually worked with glitter, but I can tell you, that it gets everywhere!

Gets in your hair, gets on the tables, it gets on carpet, it gets on the camera, it gets on the backdrop, it gets in your fingernails, and it gets all over your model.

This was a concept shoot which I have to admit turned out so much better than what will trying to go for. The colour and the make up along with the hair on the backdrop on the ground just really made it for me. It has lots of depth and dimension along with drama and beauty.

It really is one of my better shots I think.

What do you think?

Had the opportunity this evening to pop out and grab a few shots of a friend of mine before she leaves town. It was such a fantastic opportunity to catch up with her again and talk about……… well……. just random stuff really.

She is always a fantastic person to photograph and I must say I have really enjoyed the time I’ve spent with her over the shoots we have done, and it’s kind of a shame that she will be moving to Sydney. Hopefully one day in the future we will catch up again but if not I wish you all the best.

Safe travels my friend.
