Happy New Year!
This morning I got up a little later than usual, I kissed my girls while they were still asleep and whispered happy new year my love…..I picked up my eldest daughter from a friends so that we could all be together for the beginning of the year. One went off to work….Family is everything.
I called my best friend in Adelaide and she was the one I wanted to say hi to first for 2019, express my love and gratitude for our friendship over the years.
I put on a load of washing, hung, healthy breakfast for lunch, a little tidy up and now time for me, a goal that I intend to keep this year, time to take care of me, what I love and acknowledge who I love.
I hope to share with you at least one professional image per day from my travels, some yet to be edited and some of my favourites from my past adventures, this year the aim is to find a little more balance and a closer relationship focusing on the VIP’s in my life, keeping it simple and real, still loving the minimalist life that I have embraced over the last few years, less truly is more in every respect.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of your support, likes and comments, it’s very much appreciated.
For my “me’ time hour today I will be editing my favourite images from Jökulsárlón Glacia Lagoon, Iceland, Sharing the first image that I love from that incredible time I spent with my eldest daughter on our trip to Iceland. Enjoy.
Out on a whale watching cruise yesterday off Phillip Island, unfortunately we didn’t spot any, lots of playful dolphins and seals, There were lots of swells, rain and even hail stones at one point which made it all the more exciting. I love the way the waves dance and create quick moments of natures art. Victoria, Australia. You can purchase this image here.
The human body is a work of art, as a woman photography, tasteful and sweet is my aim, i love these flowers, they live in my front garden, i love how i planted a few years ago, some died and then they have sprung up in different parts of it. It’s been an amazing week of creating fine art, just from one shoot i have been inspired so much, keep some for later.
THE IMPORTANCE OF A PROFESSIONAL HEADSHOT
It’s not ‘just’ a Headshot!
With social media and our online presence playing such a huge role today in the success of our businesses, it is now more important than ever to be seen often, and in the best possible light.
Quite simply a great Headshot should look like you at your absolute best without being a glamour shot. (unless that’s what you want of course).
The right balance of ensuring you look your best while ensuring the images remain very natural. It is very important that your shots look like you when you meet your clients.
Beginning with a consultation, we get to know each other, I get to know you, who you are and what you do, from here the shoot ideas begin discussing aiming at your shoot to best suit your style and needs.
My passion while creating your headshot is always the same, whether you are a fashion designer or CEO and everything in between, I take great care and skill to create for you the best possible Headshots and make your personal and business photographic branding simply you.
Through coaching and directing you properly throughout the shoot keeping in mind our discussed end result ensuring this make your experience in front of the camera enjoyable, fun and relaxed and enabling your very best photo’s to be easily captured. To create beautiful images we must see them before we shoot.
I shoot using the highest quality cameras and lenses so you can be sure our photography is produced to the highest possible standard while always maintaining a relaxed and fun environment so the best photographs can be captured quickly and with a minimum of fuss.
Retouching is all part of my service,.
No filters and no shortcuts using advanced Photoshop skills,, all our images are finished by hand, subtle skin smoothing, colour correction and adjustments, I place great pride on how your final images are presented to you.
Home based studio on Taylors Hill, Melbourne you have the option of White, Grey or black background along with the right lighting to suit you, keeping it natural and real, Natural light is also available.
Natural light on location, are also lots of fun and a bit more spontaneous which can really help produce a great looking headshot, this kind of headshot can be less static and a little more down to earth if that is what you prefer.
Natural light has a beautiful and soft quality about it, using your environment also ensures that your images are unique and reflects your company and this makes your image pop.
Q. What do I wear?
A. Wardrobe choice is an important part of a successful Headshot and can give your shots that little bit of edge. As a general rule darker colours and simple necklines are better and it is good to keep it as simple as possible. It is good however to consider a few different looks for more specific personalities and services. When using a colour headshot try wearing colours that work well with your skin tone and eye colour. You will be surprised how much difference certain colours will make your shots really stand out.
Lastly think about items of clothing that you love wearing and make you feel great and bring them to your headshot session. A favourite jacket, scarve, shirt or jumper etc will inject a bit of your own personal style into the shot and ensure your headshots show you looking and feeling great.
Q. DO I NEED A MAKEUP ARTIST FOR MY PHOTO SHOOT?
A.People often ask whether they need a makeup artist and really there is no set rule. My experience has found that to get the best headshot and have a great shoot its best to leave nothing to chance so if your budget permits it is a great idea to have a professional do it for you. The right balance of making you look your best while ensuring the shots remain very natural. It is very important that your shots look like you. A professional hair stylist should also be considered for the very same reason.
