Travelled through the South Island of New Zealand in July 2014. My partner and I hired a camper van from Christchurch and set off for two weeks! We had the freedom to stop wherever we wanted to and soaked up a few good sleep ins! We were worried about being too cold but our little heater kept us warm each night which made the trip really enjoyable.
When I travel I sometimes find it hard to get motivated to take photos as it just feels like work, when instead I just want to get away from it and enjoy myself 🙂 On this trip we had a bit of a theme of Ashbey and I kissing in a fair few of our photos which gave me some inspiration to find some different angles of New Zealand rather then just seeing some mountains and rivers!
A trip to NZ is highly recommended if you have never been make sure its on your bucket list!
I had a work experience boy in a couple of weeks ago so i decided to get my friend Pia into the studio to do some glamour stuff. Pia has a unique face and killer collar bones! so i thought it would be cool to experiment with some lighting set ups i have been wanting to try!
One being a beauty dish from front/above, a beauty dish being below front and finally a 1.5m Octo soft box from above/ behind to light her hair and shoulders… i quite like the shot 🙂
Pia has never done anything like this in her life so i really enjoyed working with her from the very start to capture some photo’s that she really liked and felt comfortable with 🙂
So i have built this new studio and figured i should start using it! So i have started to do some actors profile shots and at the end we got a little creative 🙂 Gill was a little nervous when she first rocked up but soon after we had started she relaxed into it and we got some nice shots 🙂
Here are a couple –
