Fine Art Nude: Elia

Recently I put out a model call for Fine Art Nude models. Beautiful Elia replied to my call and modelled like a pro. Its so refreshing to see a young woman comfortable in her own beautiful skin.

If you are interested in modelled for Fine Art Nude Photography email me, Im always looking for all ages over 18-100! and all genders and sizes.

I would like to thank the following amazingly talented team:

Makeup: Angela McIntosh of Beauty by Angela
Hair: Michelle Longman of Hair Heart & Soul

With special thanks to my model Elia and Christopher, for his hospitality - kindly letting us get creative in his incredible home. 

Macro Photography - Close up in a hill top garden.

One beautiful Nelson Sunday evening I took my new Macro lens out to play at a beautiful garden belonging to family friends. The light was right, the colours were rich and the textures were sharp.  Nothing rocks my boat more than playing with my camera and light. 

Special thanks to Mike & Judy for letting me play in their pretty garden.

Today I had a fun collaboration with a great group of ladies, making over gorgeous Ling.

Georgia

I really enjoyed this studio shoot with an awesome team, including some new creatives I had not worked with before, but will certainly be again! Angela of Beauty by Angela worked her magic creating my vision for this series which was muted and pale,  the makeup blew me away! Ema did a great job on Georgias hair - but then I ruined it experimenting with a leaf blower (note: blowing hair for a shoot is not as simple as you would think - about 100 shots attempted not one worked!) I decided to ditch the blowing hair idea, unfortunately the hair was a bit of a mess after that, so Georgia and I had to do our best without a hairdresser or even a brush/comb!

I have experimented with editing out the movable wall and leaving it in the composition, with this being the third mock-up experimentation for my studio project (Fashion Photography for a NZ label)

The amazing wall artworks are actually vintage tourism posters from Nostalgia Antiques
