Shot on location in

La Perouse after the bushfires

Had a couple of new models that were interested in some dramatic looks as a point of difference. The weather was variable and in one instance the water was totally destroyed by the recent bushfire season. It certainly added drama to what we were creating. Difficult conditions and not ideal. This is why I enjoy the challenges of environmental portraits. In a studio one has so much control, I prefer to do this now as each situation is different and every location brings different aspects of lighting, conditions, and looks. Very seldom do I get models available at sunset or sunrise to create that magic look. Everyone is pressured by time, especially when they are not being paid for it.
