Month: April 2013

a long work in progress…

travel April 7, 2013

I’ve been working on this project for over a year now. Really it should have been finished a while ago, as in 4 years ago, once I came back from working on cruise ships. I do think though, that time has given me a greater appreciation for the images as I am no longer looking back on them as memories.

Rather than sorting the images in chronological order, I have paired them with another through an element that I feel connects them; to create tension or ease, to show familiarity or difference.

Only the final touches to go now! Hopefully I will have something to show soon…

just a casual sunday shoot…

people April 7, 2013

It seems you can never expect at photo shoot to go exactly to plan, and today this definitely was the case. Ginger and Tonic, a fantastic a cappella group from Melbourne (that my fav house mate just happens to be part of), needed to update their photos since recently adding a new member to their group.

After finishing the more serious photos, we decided to do something a bit more playful so the girls hopped up onto the pillars just in front of the Melbourne Museum. After a few snaps the security guard ran over asking them to get down because the bikey gang (more like a group of bike enthusiasts), were coming through. Another photographer ran past and said for them to stay there, so they did!

In all the excitement I didn’t know quite where to stand but didn’t want to miss out on a great shot! I positioned myself in a place that I thought I wouldn’t get run over and still get some photos. And then they came, revving their engines, lining up at the start of the pillars.

And this is what I captured…
