CODIE YOUNG: Age of Aquarius!

This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius! Age of Aquarius! Oh Yeah Baby! I don't know about you guys but I've had some major changes going on in my life over the last few months. A lot of my friends are having very similar experiences. My advice, you just got to roll with it! Life seems to be getting more and more exciting! The challenges get bigger, the risks get higher, the rewards become greater! My lovely friend Elliot Ward-Fear messaged me this morning to make sure that I send out positive affirmations to the universe today - as it's the 11th of the 11th of 2011. A whole lotta 11's! Whoaaaaa! So I've done mine, now it's your turn! Meanwhile, here is a psychedelic beauty outtake of Codie Young from the Elliot Ward-Fear campaign to get you into that free spirited frame of mind! I can't wait to show you our spread for Black Magazine - it's truly awesome. In the meantime, this should suffice!

SUBFUSCO ELEMENTS 11/12: Jemma Baines

POP! I've been noticing the lovely Jemma Baines from Chic surfacing in some great australian editorials lately (including Harpars Bazaar & Russh) so I thought I'd share with you this beauty shot of her from the Subfusco lookbook collection 'Elements' - Amelia Axton did a divine job with the hair and makeup. Jemma was great fun to work with on the day and took to my strange sense of humour with ease!  Not only does Jemma have strikingly beautiful features, but she also posseses a total willingness to work until you get the photograph you're looking for. A great beauty who loves modelling - an ideal combination that equates to success!

MONSTER & MIDGET: Stella Maxwell @ VIVA

These pictures are from a story I published a while back for a unique little publication called Monster & Midget. The talent featured is viva model Stella Maxwell. Stella has shot a stack of amazing international editorial and worked with some top notch clients and photographers across the globe (think British Vogue, think Alexander McQueen, think Mario Testino). Anyone who has worked with Stella would attest that she brings a fantastic energy into her pictures and her company is always a pleasure. I'm looking forward to when we get a chance to shoot together again! In the meantime, I thought I'd share these pics I took of her... I still really enjoy them!
