Georgia


If you're from Sydney, you will definitely know that our summer this year hasn't been very summery. It has been raining and storming here for about two weeks now and even though it's pretty amazing for landscape photography, such crazy weather conditions are not ideal for for shoots with models, make up artists and stylists. This shoot was one of the quickest I have ever done, we had less than 30minutes for shooting before it started pouring on us and we had to run home. The girls were amazing though and worked really well under pressure.

Just let it rain.

I had a wonderful day today. Things for my graduation show are slowly coming along and I did two new paintings today and I must admit I'm very happy with them. Just as I finished painting them, I was walking to the kitchen to make myself a nice, hot cup of green tea and looked outside to see the most beautiful rain cloud. This time I just stood and looked out the window and watched the cloud change. Here's a few quiet moments that I captured as it started raining.








Just let it rain and enjoy the night. xo

Byron with Katrina

Part1 

 


 

 

 

  




 



 








You have already met my gorgeous friend Katrina, from my last post about Cataract Gorge but this time we went to Byron Bay and had the most amazing time. Byron was so beautiful and on one of our walks around the beaches we found this beautiful lake and I couldn't resist, I knew I had to photograph Kat there, or I would regret it. So we found a dress in one of the local shops and it was just perfect for this shoot. It was a beautiful day and I took so many shots that it was hard to pick the best ones. Part 2 of this shoot is coming very soon and I'm so excited to share it with you. Don't forget to follow me on Bloglovin and stay updated on new posts. :)

Cataract Gorge

Tasmania 2014

I have finally gone through all the photographs taken on my road trip around Tasmania, with my gorgeous friend Katrina. Tasmania is a very beautiful place and of-course I took way too many photos. I decide that it will be better to show them in sections and this is where it all started. Cataract Gorge was the first place we went to after landing in Launceston and renting a car. It is just minutes away from the city centre but you feel like you're in a completely different planet. Straight away you're surrounded by the wilderness. What amazed me the most were the peacocks that freely walk around the Gorge. Some people might not find them as fascinating, but I absolutely love them. They're probably my favourite birds and straight away I just fell in love with that place. We probably didn't pick the best day to go there, as it rained for most of it. But I was pretty happy with my photographs, they have that cold winter feeling, snow was probably the only thing missing.

 After having a picnic, surrounded by the birds we decided to go for a walk around the Gorge. We were told it would only take us about an hour, but we stayed there for most of the day and that wasn't enough for us.

 I could've have easily spent days there photographing the rocks. Aren't they amazing?

 Katrina photographing the river. It's so nice to travel with people who have similar interests. It must be hard for people who aren't interested in photography to travel with photo-addicts like myself. In Tasmania I felt like I only just bought my first camera. I wanted to photograph everything, it really inspired me.

When we finally got to the Alexandra Bridge, we took even more photographs. Poor Katrina was freezing, we didn't think Australia got this cold. It felt like a different country. Cold, but beautiful.
