Blue Mountains Photographer: 'Forest Girl'

Portrait session from last week-end: Had a vision of green forest backdrop, wild/crazy make-up and hair... the girls at Hairloom (for hair) and WindFlower Beauty (for make-up) came on board and... I must say I was so thrilled with their team work ! Love the results !
 If you wish to have a complete make-over or a more subtle look, added with my vision for photography, just inbox me and will work a photo-package just for you !

 (Seance photo du w-end dernier:  J'ai eut une vision de vert et de foret comme arriere plan, un maquillage et une coiffe bien pousse' et un peu folle, 
les filles de Hairloom (pour les cheveux) et WindFlower Beauty (pour le maquillage) 
se sont volontairement joint a moi et je dois dire que le resultat est 
epoustouflant vous trouvez pas ?

Have a fantastic week !!

Blue Mountains Photographer: 'Advertising shoot'

Did an advertising shoot yesterday for a local business in Blackheath, showing a quick montage of some of the photos  but... there are so many that I love from that session.  I wonder which one the owner of the Hairsalon  will choose for her advertisement.  So many beautiful ones!!

(J'ai fait un shoot publicitaire pour une boite locale la semaine derniere, je vous montre un petit montage de quelques photos mais... il y en a beaucoup que j'aime de cette serie.  Je me demande laquelle la proprietaire choisira pour sa photo publicitaire :)

on the ground nearby this week, I visualised a shoot with a girly/romantic feel to it.
Love  that gorgeous headpiece as well it just adds to it dont you think ? :)

Blue Mountains Photographer: 'B&W portrait'

Hi there...
Went down to the city last month and did a mini shoot...
Made the most of the simple and basic location and  ... love the result !
I chose to edit the images in B&W so to accentuate the lines and give a bit of texture to them...
What do you think ?

(Je suis allee sur Sydney le mois dernier et ai fait un mini shoot.
J'ai profite' du coin tres simple et pourtant... j'adore l'effet donne' !
(J'ai decide' de les editer en N&B pour accentuer les lignes et donner un peu de texture a l'image...)
Qu'est-ce que vous en pensez ?

Thank you for viewing or for  your comments, I'm also on Facebook HERE
Have a great week !!

Blue Mountains Photographer 'Miss Burlesque Australia NSW 2013'

I had the opportunity early this month to capture Miss Burlesque Australia and 
can I tell you something?: 'Wow !' 
I  love  capturing  performers  (whether burlesque/cabaret, singers or dancers)...challenging at times because mostly those are captured in low light but for me...
...it is quite something ! It's far from just clicking on the button but rather loving/enjoying what I see
through my lens and transmitting my feelings through my photos...
The beauty of those gorgeous performers, the body movements ect... and I also do feel there is more than just strutting their stuffs... those performers are also so talented and full of creativity !
Whether in creating their gorgeous costumes but also a lot of work is put into each of their performances .... just clever and brilliant !
Well done everyone and also to Cassandra Jane producer of Miss Burlesque Australia !

J'ai eut l'occasion en debut de ce mois de capturer Miss Burlesque Australia et puis-je
me permettre de vous dire quelque chose ? c'etait du 'Wow !!'
J'adore prendre en photos ce genre et style de photo (que ce soit burlesque/cabaret, chanteurs ou des scenes de danse)... c'est par moment un challenge surtout en lumiere tamise'e mais pour moi...
vraiment quelque chose ! Loin de juste appuyer sur son bouton mais c'est plutot d'apprecier ce que je  voit dans mon objectif et de le transmettre  a travers mes photos.
Non seulement la beaute' de ces artistes, le mouvement du corps ect... et je trouve que ce n'est pas seulement de montrer ci et ca... mais ces artistes sont aussi tres talentueux et tres creatifs !
Voyez par les costumes... tout les details y sont meme a voir leur demonstrations, tres ingenieux !

Un grand bravo  aussi a  Cassandra Jane la productrice de Miss Burlesque Australia!
