Fashion : Campaign Shoot | Bunbury Photographer

Michelle from Metro Modelling Bunbury and I came together and planned for a campaign style shoot at the Bunbury Airport. It was the first time shooting at the Bunbury Airport, although I have flown a couple times in the small plane for aerial photography, but that was entirely different. The models for the shoot was Kylie Dawson & Jonelle Fontana. They were both great. The best assistance was provided by the Bunbury Flying School, Dallas and her very friendly team of pilots, especially Shannon. They were such great help. We had to move around the airport, even had to move the planes as we were blocking traffic at times. As safety is the priority at the airport, there must be supervision at all times. Jo Clark came along with some props and even helped with a bit of posing for the models. Glad she came along too.

It was really a fun shoot, weather was just great!! very happy with that. Some shots to share below:

The last photo was just for fun, had a short intermission and wanted something different :)

South West Fashion Festival 2011

South West Fashion 2011 is such an amazing project lead by Jo Clark, with her extensive range of experience in the fashion industry in UK, I am so confident that this project will be a success and I am glad to be a part of such an amazing crew.

This was my first time taking up fashion photography. I have done some model’s portfolio, but those are entirely different. It’s normally for 2 hours and just me and the model.

Courtney, the winner and the current face of the South West Fest’10 was selected to be my model for the day. Although it was her first model shoot, she was very professional. And the rest of the crew was great, Ally with the make up, Lisa with hairstyling, Michelle with location and guiding the model, Jo with directing and April & Stephen assisting.

Jo made the right decision by confirming Metro Modelling as the main location of the shoot. We have the space and some nice surroundings for outdoor shoot nearby. As I was only preparing for a 2-3 hours shoot, it went for approx 7 hours!!..4 dresses and different make up and hairstyling, lots of patience from the team.  I was even worried that my battery wasn’t sufficient, glad the back up camera are using the same as camera and I felt secure.

We started to take some indoor studio style shots at first, and head out to the surrounding area for a more interesting backdrop. I was happy and travelling light with just basic gears as we need to move around quickly.
