|2nd Nov 2005. My second
shoot with Tavia. This time weather was unsettled and with a start about 2
we worked in the studio. Did I say work!!! What a pleasure this model is. Plenty of expressions, poses,
polite enough to laugh at my jokes and looks great in front of the camera. Looking forward to more shoots.
| 8th Nov 2005. Second shoot with
Lucinda. Only very short as squeezed in between work and training.
Lucinda does competitive kickboxing which helps explains her lithe figure. Due to time constraints
we travelled to Fingal where we had this little beach all to ourselves.
| 9th Nov 2005. My 7th
shoot with Belinda and starting at Fingal One advantage of shooting with a model a number
of times is that you know the model is reliable and consistent. Because of your mutual respect you can explore
different themes more successfully than the first time with a model. Belinda wanted to do more shoots outdoors and
relished the cool water , fresh air and hot sun. A little too much sun by the end of the shoot at Hastings Point.
| 13th Nov 2005. My 9th
recent shoot with Britney. After a late afternoon start we travelled to
Hastings point beach
which has Km of lonely vacant beach with only a few late afternoon walkers and surfers. Hoping for late afternoon
sunlight we were thwarted by low cloud in the west. Finished one outfit there and then returned to the studio
for a long relaxed session and finishing close to midnight.
| 15 th Nov 2005. My 13th
shoot with Savannah. Arrived at her place about 10.30 and she was ready to
Travelled to Palm Beach / Currumbin for our first costume under slightly overcast conditions. Then the sun
broke through making it too hot and bright to continue, so we travelled south to an old deserted farm shed that
I have used before. After one outfit there we then went for lunch and continued
in the studio. It is always interesting working with Savannah and one often never knows whet to expect.
| 17 th Nov 2005. Back again with
Josephine one of my favorite models. This time she got up at 4am for a
shoot with no complaints. We travelled to Fingal and as the weathermen would have it, the clouds had banked
up on the horizon. But a little later the sun broke through and gave us a little warmth. After finishing the first
costume the rain started to come in so we travelled to the studio for the next costume. As that progressed the sun
came out again so we left to head to outdoor locations again and once again our personal rain cloud seemed to
have followed, so called an early day and decided to try again on a finer day. Delightful, expressive, reliable are
just some of the words coming to mind when I think of shooting with Josephine.
| 17th Nov 2005. Backing up later
that day for 14 th shoot with Savannah and the second for the day. Picked
at 2 pm and travelled to Fingal where we finished the first costume and then got chased by the rain. So back to
the studio and another couple of costumes before finishing early. Again a most interesting shoot..
| 20th Nov 2005. My 54 th
shoot with Morgan for the site www.puremorgan.com.
Once again even though ill
Morgan still did her best. We managed 7 sets (361 images ) in 2 hours an average of 3 shots per minute,
which is testimony to her amazing posing experience. We started out at Snapper rocks where she attracted
approving stares of guys and disapproving stares of some women. Then after 3 sets there we travelled
south to Hastings point beach to complete the sets.
| 21 st Nov 2005. My 15th
shoot with Savannah building up plenty of stock images. Picked her up at
and we travelled to Fingal . Completed 2 sets in one costume and then retired for lunch and to the studio for
another costume and three sets. Both feeling a bit tired with the weather and decided to cut it short and try again
another day with a bit more rest.
| 23rd Nov 2005. Sixteenth
shoot. Started about 12 but as sun was too bright for outdoor beach work
to the studio, intending to do some late afternoon beach work. Weather once again has been consistent ... bad.
Fine in morning and then cloudy and rain in afternoon. Did three costumes for 8 sets this time and also some body
part shots. Finished by 5 intime to get Savannah home for an evening date.
| 24th Nov 2005. My first
shoot with new model Emma introduced by Savannah. Emma is a qualified
and has appeared on the cover of picture magazine twice. Met her near the airport about 9 am and we travelled to
Kingscliff for a couple of costume sets, which served me as the test shots that other photographers get away with for free.
Only took me two sets to get comfortable with Emma and her antics. She was very relaxed and spontaneous. Although
the bright light caused problems with her sensitive eyes. We then went to Cudgen Lake and found a new location
which was more sheltered from the brighter reflective glare. Completed another 2 costumes for six sets and then the
hunger pangs set in so took a short lunch break before moving to the studio for 3 more costumes and 7 sets. A total
of 6 hours including lunch travelling and viewing results. Felt very comfortable with Emma by the end and she was
already talking about the next shoot.
| 29th Nov 2005. Shoot
17 with Savannah. Racking up the content quickly. This was a short
shoot, picked up
at 9.30 travelled up to the Spit. Three bikini changes in space of one and a quarter hours. Then back by
11.15 to get some computer material sorted.
| 29th Nov 2005. The third
shoot with Tavia and my second for the day.. Picked up from rail station
at 1 pm and
travelled to theme farm in Tweed Heads. Couple of costumes here and then to Fingal for one more bikini outfit.
Had to call this shoot short as Tavia was unwell, but insisted on shooting as she did not want to let me down. I
scolded her and made her promise not to come on a shoot when she was so sick again.
