I was browsing through Russell James’s beauty, fashion and lingerie photography work today and I was blown away by his work. Particularly his beauty work. Its simple but dramatic and amazing. His story is really interesting as he is now Victoria Secret’s main photographer yet he is a Perth boy, obviously he has gone a long way! Anyhow it got me to looking through some of my old work from my previous life as a fashion / glamour photographer and I realised that the photos I liked best were the close up face shots. Why? Because you get a great view of someone’s eyes, its cliched I know but it is like your looking into their soul. If you can capture the eyes accurately you’ve got a fantastic shot. That’s my rant for the day. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by,

Another photo from the lingerie advertising test shoot. In the proper shoot we used a house and didn’t use any tacky white wool rug. LOL. In this shoot the company just wanted to make sure the girls were right and that I could take a decent photo. I’m pretty sure that I can, the company were as well they ended up commisioning us all to do the advertising shoot.
This is from a shoot I did with Ash late last year, just like Alina she is so easy to shoot, she just works the camera so well. So well in fact that she made the cover of this month’s Ralph magazine…. but I shot her first! The shoot was for a lingerie advertising campaign for a national lingerie company.
Hello Everyone. This is from a shoot that I did a few weeks ago, the more I worked with the photo the more I was convinced that it should be in black and white, I think it turned out really well. This was a really fun night and everything just ticked along like clock work, this was done with just one light as well which made life very easy. Normally we use four lights and are continually adjusting them.
Again having Alina as the model made life easy as she just knows how to work the camera. Anyhow, it was fun and the results were awesome. Enough said!
Because someone has to do it. Yep its me.
This was the first time I ever got to shoot Alina and the first that stood out was that not only was she amazingly beautiful, she was a fantastic model as well. Since then we have worked together on a number of projects. If you ever get the chance to work with her you should.
