AVES BEAUTY: featuring Eva Downey

This B&W outake is from a beauty campaign I shot for Aves Cosmetics - featuring one of my favourite aussie models Eva Downey from The Agency. Personally I believe Eva has the potential to become one of the biggest models to emerge out of Australia, so I'm keen to see how her career progress over the next few years! Aves is owned by talented Sydney makeup artist Bonnie Gillies. Bonnie runs one of Australia's most well respected beauty blogs Oz Beauty Expert which investigates all of the latest products, news and services available in the beauty industry. Well worth checking out if you're passionate about your beauty products!

PAULA KYLE WALDEN: Anthea @ Busy Models

This weekend I made a pit stop in Brisbane to shoot the new collection from uber talented accessories designer Paula Kyle Walden. We channelled a late seventies aesthetic for the shoot - and the final images will be revealed in the weeks to come. In the meantime, I had to share this one outtake with you that I have fallen in love with. Channelling a young Cybill Shepard, I adore this shot of the beautiful Anthea @ Busy Models. Anthea is a total babe and heaps of fun to work with! Lauren McCowan did the hair and makeup, and totally nailed it as usual.  

All I have to say is "More, more, more... how do you like it?"

SHORT FILM: Anything But Ordinary

The kind folk at Olympus have gifted me with a new camera they've brought out named the PEN E-P3. It's a sexy little number that has an old school vintage type look but can take a super powerful photograph, rivaling that of any DSLR. It comes with a wicked array of features including some super cool art filters and the recording power to make HD movies! 

Excited by my new toy, I decided to take a walk the other day to get some inspiration. Sadly by the time I made it to the city centre, the rain began to pour down and I had to scrap my original idea... 

I took shelter undercover nearby, pondering my next move whilst scanning my surroundings. That's when I happened to notice this very elegant escalator. Upon closer inspection I soon became obsessed with it. So much so that I made a short film about it... and here it is - Anything But Ordinary - which is all about finding art in the most mundane of places. Shot, directed and edited by yours truly.
