Last week I had the opportunity to travel to Hong Kong to attend the opening of the world's largest G-Star store in Causeway Bay and shoot top Australian model, Alexandra Agoston. Alex and I spent the day exploring Hong Kong and seeing the sights - needless to say it wasn't too difficult to take lovely pictures of such a gorgeous girl! The pair of us worked together to style the shoot, using our own accessories to compliment the G-Star pieces and showcase Alex's own effortless personal style.

My collection of snaps from the G-Star store opening - it was such a fabulous party! I loved seeing the media circus surrounding the invited Chinese celebrities like actor/singer Aaron Kwok and top model/blogger AngelaBaby (pictured). I was also pleased to meet designer Pierre Morisset (pictured with model Alexandra Agoston) - what a great creative energy he has! Its so humbling to meet a man with such visionary ideas - and some hilarious anecdotes!
I've included a few shots of the incredible 'art pieces' which are part of the
The party also featured a very cool installation performed by a group of models, a interesting step away from the usual catwalk. The highlight was the acoustic performance by American singer/songwriter/producer Skylar Gray. I had goosebumps while she was singing her track 'Love The Way You Lie'.
I'm so grateful to be invited to take part in this event, the talent and energy behind the brand G-Star was a true inspiration.
I'm delighted to share with you all my latest little project, a photoshoot in Hong Kong with denim superbrand, G-Star. Video hotshots Baker & Junior created this short film featuring my shoot with Alexandra Agoston and fellow photographer Chris Colls shoot with singer/songwriter Skylar Grey. The trip was arranged in celebration of the opening of the largest G-Star store in the world, a whopping 680 square metres of denim innovation. I have plenty of images from the party to share with you, where I was also lucky enough to see a live performance by Skylar of her hit song "Love The Way You Lie" - released by Rihanna and Eminem. Still pinching myself, I had such an amazing time. Will share the shoot images and the shots I took from the party in the next couple days.
Below the outfit I was sporting at the party, this crazy cool boiler suit made me feel ready for anything!

My first editorial to be published in a real life magazine! I'm buzzing right now, still in Hong Kong (more on this when I get back) so I'm psyched to get home and get my hot little hands on a copy. It was such a dream day for shooting, perfectly consistent weather - I couldn't believe my luck! And how gorgeous is model Lia May? I've been lucky enough to work with her twice now.

My recent contribution to the Harpers Bazaar Style Network (see the rest HERE). Thanks so much to Christabel Draffin again for being the creative force behind these images. A photoshoot themed with contradictions, bombshell Anna the professional and adorable Pearl - her second shoot ever! How cool are Anna's tatts? I have one tattoo, but I wont ever show you lot what it looks like cos its a bit of a cliche. My sister and have matching tatts so I guess its pretty sweet. Once you get inked you can't go back - but I'm the first to admit it is totally addicting. I'd love to get more.... I'm just paranoid I'll select something that seems cool now but will make me look like a total victim in a few years time. Part of being a fashionista I guess, wear something once... you're sick of it.
I'm headed to see Roger Waters - Pink Floyds The Wall tonight out at Homebush. My darling husband has scored us some prime seats and I've been anticipating it for months and months. Can't wait for Comfortably Numb.
Have a crazy couple weeks ahead including a sojourn to Hong Kong! Such a great city. Going to score some awesome content.

Mum and I made this video to be sent out to clients so I could books some shows. Thank goodness I don't need to work so hard anymore! Sporting a tad more booty these days (can I get a hell yeah?!).

Some new pictures starring model Dimity at Priscillas, featuring the gorgeous jewellery of Samantha Wills as part of the White Bohemia project. I shot these are part of a facebook/blogger competition so if you like these images then please LIKE my pics on facebook so I can win an Ipad... which is something I really need to start a portfolio! The alternative for me is printing them in a proper portfolio which costs thousands and thousands and thousands (did I mention thousands?) of dollars... Not so realistic at the moment.
So if you appreciate my work - please help me out! I'd be so grateful.
Thanks so much to Samantha Wills for inviting me to take part in this project.
Also here's an outfit post! More to come - I know alot of you miss my outfits posts so I'm going to try my hardest to produce some more - because without you I wouldn't have any of these oppurtunities!
So impressed with the new Stylestalker collection now available - and double so because the terrible summer weather has enabled me to debut the most comfortable military parka around. These AM shades have been a summer staple too, best thing about them in the arms bend both ways so it doesn't stretch them to wear them on my head. Clever.

Yes I've taxed the name of this shoot from a certain fabulous Al Pacino movie but it really just felt so appropriate... and far out, aren't I so lucky to have such a babe for a friend? I've shot Brittany before for my blog - still some of my favourite pics I've ever shot. Doesn't she have such an amazing face!
Thanks again to my blogger buddy, Christabel Draffin (Make-up Mole) for this bombshell look and of course to Carl Kapp for providing these stunning wrap dresses (I want one!).

Photography tip: Try out backlighting, using natural light. I've used this technique in the above images to create a dark silhouette, then lifted the darker shadows slightly in post editing. Having a large reflector to bounce light back in would be ideal but I shot this without an assistant.
