None the less this doesn’t take away the horror that awaited …

Surfer Chick

Surfer Girl Shoot commercial fashion photography One of my latest projects was working on a commercial fashion photography project titled “surfer girl”. Surfing is more than a sport, it’s an entire lifestyle choice and it’s this lifestyle and attitude that is portrayed in my photographs.   Shooting a fashion photo-shoot with a surfer girl theme involves very little props and working with basic fashion products. The styling needs to look effortless yet sexy. The surfboard needed to look used and the model needed to look connected to her surroundings. Surf style fashion is all about from the beach to the …

Levi’s Endless summer

Endless summer. That time in your life when the warm days and late nights are upon you, when all inhibitions get thrown to the wind and you can experience life as it was intended to be; carefree, wild and reckless. As we look up into the sun feeling the warmth on our faces, in that moment we are alive, in that moment we are free.

Levi’s Vintage fashion shoot

Last weekend I was lucky enough to recreate an iconic vintage image for Levi’s, using their original Levi Strauss & Co spring bottom pants. The concept was pitched to Levi’s after coming across an old illustration of a gentleman smoking a cigar in these spring bottom pants. We just loved the picture and wanted to recreate this image. Levi’s were just as keen on the idea and were kind enough to send us the original spring bottom pants. So armed with our pants from Levi’s and vintage braces from Albert Thurston we headed out to do our shoot. Here are …
