Kristen - 1960s & 1970s Kiwiana

This year, the final one of my BA in Arts & Media at NMIT I have created my own brief, 

"Create a Fashion Campaign for an New Zealand Designer"

I sent out over 30 emails to different NZ designers and received a great response.  The label I have chosen to work with (under wraps until the end of year reveal) is awesome, I am so exited to be able to photograph their fashion. 

As part of my experimentation process I have mocked up different styles of Fashion Spread. I am excited to reveal the first of many... for my 703 brief. 

A studio shoot with 1960s/70s Kiwiana theme. I'm sure many of you will remember some of these golden oldie props, the old dial phone, Nelson Photo News et :)

With special thanks to:

Admire 'Favourite Things' Product Photography Dec/Jan Bumper Edition

Stylist Sonya Leusink-Sladen and I have had a lot of fun re-vamping the product pages for Admire Magazine. We decided to create beautiful still life pages with them, rather than clear white cut outs of objects on pages. This we believe is more meaningful for us and the readers, creating high quality imagery which sells quality products.  We are both very proud of what we have achieved together creating what I call works of art in their own right on the pages. I hope you enjoy them too, Nelson and Richmond have a lot of quality locally sourced and produced, as well as internationally hand picked  products. We are very lucky to live in not only a little slice of paradise but also have our cake and eat it too!
