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, slouchy/loungey poses, 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!
