Blue Mountains Photographer: 'Opening of AfterFive Fashion with the Darnell Collection'

Early last month, I've been invited to the official opening of the 'After Five', Fashion from the Darnell Collection at Hazelhurst Regional Gallery & Art Centre (Gymea NSW).  Gorgeous display of vintage dresses from Christian Dior to John Galiano and more, simply superbe ! 
(Of course, couldn't help myself, took some shots :).  If you get there, make sure to get to their shop after browsing, you can also get yourself a mini book of the collection (with photos mostly from: Brigitte Grant Photography ! Such a thrill for me to see my work in prints again ! 
The exhibition is open until 12 May.

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 !!

Merci de passer et d'y laisser un commentaire !  Je suis aussi sur Facebook ICI 
Passez une superbe semaine !!

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... 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!
