Frock Paper Scissors | Fashion Editorial

Street Roamers | Brisbane Fashion Photography

 

Recently I was approached by Frock Paper Scissors magazine to photograph an editorial for their latest issue. Frock Paper Scissors is a Brisbane fashion magazine produced annually by QUT students and 2016 is it's 11th year.

Involved in the shoot was a full creative team of amazingly talented people:
Concept/Stylist: Naomi Cao
Model: Amber Bartlett, Vivien's Model Management
Hair Stylist: Scott Dearlove
Makeup Artist: Kat McAndrew

Street Roamers redefines the meaning of street-wear in a modern era, where fashion is manipulated and photographs are constructed to fit the “look” of the moment. Contrasting Bill Cunningham’s work of real people in a real world, this photo shoot showcases the evolution of fashion photography and the new definition of the “it-girl”.

Gold Creek Reservoir | Brisbane Photoshoot Location

Model Portfolios + Fashion Shoots | Brisbane Fashion Photography

 

Brookfield's Gold Creek Reservoir is a hidden beauty of Brisbane's western suburbs. There's a lot to be explored with the various walking tracks surrounding the reservoir. Though for my fashion photography at this location, there's plenty of variety for imagery without having to trek long distances. 

The reservoir is located at the very end of Gold Creek Road and here, you can park your car without the stress of inner-city parking/costs. Even the long, windy roads leading to the reservoir are photogenic. A short distance from the parking area is a black-meshed greenhouse, followed by a stream and a large open grassy area with a hill leading up to the lake. An un-gated spillway provides an interesting concrete backdrop and, at the right time of day, the sun can back-light your subject with a gorgeous glow. Golden hour is incredible as the sun sets behind the distant trees, casting it's light across the lake and highlighting the long grass that lines a gravel road atop a hill overlooking this breathtaking scene. 

This location is great for developing/young models who are a little shy and would prefer somewhere a little more private and secluded from on-lookers for their model portfolio photoshoot. 

Check out some of my fashion photography captured at Gold Creek Reservoir below. If you would like similar images for your portfolio or fashion job - please get in touch, I'd love to chat about your ideas! :)

Sarah Waller | Model Portfolio

Photoshoot | Brisbane Fashion Photography

 

Sarah contacted me in need of some fresh images for her model portfolio. The brief: "basic but beautiful headshots". She explained that she wasn't interested in cat-walk or high fashion work, but required relaxed portraits to update her portfolio to show clients when booking commercial/bridal work. Sarah is a natural beauty, which made our goal so simple!

We spent a lovely afternoon in the sunlit suburban streets of Paddington in Brisbane and made some golden magic with natural light! I've found Enoggera Terrace to be quite windy on all of my visits and it was the perfect addition to those beautiful moments I love capturing for models during natural movement and expression. 

Since Sarah didn't require full length body shots, most of the shoot was captured on my beautiful 85mm f1.4 lens. Though I did also swap to my nifty 50mm f1.4 a couple of times too. 

Can you tell Sarah's favourite designer this season is Willow? hehe. Let me know which is your favourite image in the comments! :)
