When Canberra based photographers Deejay Jukic and Garry Chiu told me that they hired the Fitter's Workshop in Kingston for a photography shootout I was pretty excited about the idea. I have always wanted to do a shoot in this gorgeous space (outside of a wedding). The concept was that Deejay was going to style several outfits, and we would all have a turn at shooting the same model- this type of photography challenge has gone a bit viral in the past year or so amongst portrait and fashion photographers, probably because it is so much fun and also a great learning experience.
We have very different photography and model directing styles so it was a fun experiment to see we use the same space and model- and how the images turn out. In general, I like my images clean, facial expressions ethereal and emotive, my poses slouchy/loungey, and with an editorial style (sometimes it works out, sometimes not haha).
I was driving from Sydney so I only had the chance to shoot this one look and had to miss the the first 2 - the photos from Deejay and Garry are looking amazing though! Looking forward to seeing the edited sets!

While we were chilling out between shooting, we got our stylist Sarafina (Naomi Campbell lookalike!) to jump in to model for us. Holy crap, for someone who has never modelled before, she was incredible.
