Ready for lift off

Fashion week is in 2 days! There are so many exciting things happening. I'm going to be absolutely flat out so blog/twitter/facebook/e-mails are going to be put on hold until I get back and recover from fashion madness.

I'm off to Sydney tomorrow and in the middle of packing, I can usually manage to squeeze a weeks worth of items into 7kilos of pure carry on baggage bliss. Trips to and around Japan, Chile, and fitting 2 months worth of gear into my backpack for Europe have  turned me into a super duper packing pro. 

Even though Sydney is only a small hop skip and a jump away I've found blogger Lady Melbourne's travel tips quite handy when packing for the week of fashion madness. Thank you Lady Melbourne!

30 instant days - on hold for now !

SO I got my fashion week schedule and it's very very busy so for now...until things quieten down I shall put the 30 instant days project on hold because gurl's gonna need to carry the least amount of extra cameras as possible!!!

T-shirt shoot

I recently did a job for Tokyo based t-shirt company visible elephant 47. The pics are on the way to the Japan, in the mean time some random shots from the shoot as we speak. We had so much fun doing it-especially the night time shoot riding around on a chopper bike in the dark is a blast!

We used the model's dog Woody, also a great model and was very interested in my camera...tehehe

30 instant days-Day 3

I went for a trip to Mornington Peninsula and could not find my camera ANYWHERE. So as a consolation I snapped this picture instead...I wore this hat all day in the sunshine. Later, my Mum (who's visiting from NZ) discovered the camera under a pile of scarves.

30 Instant Days- Day 2

A little birthday celebration with friends=a cake that collapses because you failed to put it in the fridge and due to it's  chocolate moussey consistency it turned into a flop but was delicious.

30 instant days - Day 1

Flowers on our dining table....

30 instant days

Today is my birthday, and today I also begin my new personal photo project "30 instant days". I will take a photo every day with my instax mini camera and post them on this blog for your viewable pleasure.

 I chose to start from today because (a) it's my birthday- a monumental point in time & I'm also getting a scanner to scan all my dreamy instant film pictures (b) there is a lot to look forward to over the next 30 days ... you'll see and (c) April is the time when Summer turns to I guess there will be a lot of changes over the next 30 days...some good, some bad...but who knows? 

 We'll only find out as the project progresses....

disclaimer: Today's photo will come tomorrow, until then I've posted an alternative and I may not upload a photo every single day....because of technical restrictions or  pure laziness haha (non commitment from the first day?!) but I will take a photo every day regardless. I promise.

Justin Wu

Photographer Justin Wu not only creates fabulous fashion stills he also adds a little extra sparkle with these "behind the scenes" videos. Glimpse into the lovely lively lifestyle and livelihood of a photographer's life...

(ps he has my dream life...)

I heart this picture

I don't like posting blog posts without crediting the photographer but I don't know who took it... I did pull it off this rad Japanese blog though...

sunny days

Summer is almost over :( These little piccies should help drain out the last ounce of warm weather before Autumn sets in...and for any northern hemispherians (is that even a word?!) these will put you in a lovely summery mood :)

Victoria Street

Take a stroll down Victoria Street in Melbourne's Richmond suburb. Award your senses with cheap, tacky and crappy crap shops, old chinese ladies shopping for their groceries, pho noodles at 7 dollars a bowl and illegal dvds of chinese blockbuster movies. 

Instant Gratification

I hope you all managed to devour yourself with chocolate, sleep ins and a long lazy Easter Sunday morning.  I spent the Sunday at Brighton beach and snapped this instant pic of the coloured houses (a Melbourne icon). I love my instax mini camera, it brings me great joy.

An actress and a camera

I recently did a shoot with the extremely talented and goregeous Aimee Perry. Aimee is an actress and needed head shots in order to find herself the right agent. We went on fun adventures around the city. Thank you Aimee for being so comfortable in front of the camera, made my job a tonne easier! Aimee has a showreel have a look at it...
