Susie Reid







The incredible Susie Reid from Priscillas - a few images I shot yesterday with her at Maroubra Beach. She's so beautiful and a great mover, wonderful to photograph. I think she has a Dree Hemingway/Catherine McNeil look about her.
You can see here I've been experimenting with filters and techniques. Makes me feel creative, I'm enjoying it enormously.

Model: Susie Reid @ Priscillas
Photography and Styling: Guess who!?

Again, If you anyone wants to know about any of the clothes shown in the pictures, I'll answer any questions in the comments box.

floral swimsuit, Lover
white sunglasses, Le Specs
turban, Markets in India
embroidered vest, Stylestalker
lace cardigan, vintage
white sundress, Stylestalker
blue shorts, Stylestalker
cut-out baby rib dress, Stylestalker
navy bikini, Tigerlily
nude blouse, Carla Zampatti

Most of these pieces are older seasons or samples - sorry!

Zanita, you've done it again! So beautiful.

Karey said...

Hi, I love you blog! You're a great model and photographer! I was wondering if you are creating your own photoshop actions, using pre-made ones, or just purely playing with filters? B/c I'd love to know what exactly your doing, thanks!

Hey Zanita, we have been massive fans of your blog and style for some time; it is very unique and inspiring....Just wondering in the second shot who is the designer of the floral bikinis?

You have such talent!
May I ask which program you use to edit your photos?

Zanita said...

Karey:
I'm creating my own presets in selective colour and using filters and gradients.

I use Adobe Photoshop CS3.

your photos are amazing!
im such a fan of you
your beautiful and seem like such a down to earth person
you are a great role model zanita

Anonymous said...

i really appreciate that you dress well and remain true to a style that is your own, nothing too mainstream or trendy.
i also commend you for your personality and friendliness. you defy the stereotype for a model and one more thing, your body is enviable. your not sickly thin, you instead work what appears to be very well toned lean physique. i wish there were more people in the fashion industry with your take on things!
keep it up, you make visiting your blog a true delight
