Come As You Are

I have been sitting on this shoot for a while, just dying to share it with the world. I feel like I finally got to let my crazy fly with this one and I am so happy with the results. 

Mollie is probably one of the most talented models i've worked with to date. She moves seamlessly like a slinky cat from pose to pose and her eyes are CRAZZZZY - when the light hits them she looks like a beautiful vampire. A week before this shoot Mollie shaved her head and bleached what was left of her hair, along with her eyebrows. When I saw her new look for the first time I was almost flawed by this alien beauty standing in front of me. 

Once again I worked with my favourite Stylist Amber Olsen of Asymmetric Style Studio. We are quite the team, working together at total ease with a quiet understanding of what the other one is thinking. We are constantly texting each other with new ideas and I can't wait to see what her future holds. I think Amber's styling on 'Come As You Are' was so friggen good - the Galaxy Kitty look is my absolute fave!

Model Crush: Ashlee

So last night I got my photog on for my first show at QT Fashion Week and it was keeeeewl! To be honest, I think runway photography is pretty boring on the most part so i'm going to take this opportunity to just have a little fun this week and experiment with shutter drag, angles, flash and different editing styles. I am purely shooting for this here blog, and the experience of course, so I am lucky to have creative freedom over my pictures as I only have myself to answer to. 

First up is a little post dedicated to my favourite model from last night, Ashlee. There's is something 80's/90's supermodel-ish about Ashlee. I just love her super blunt bob, sharp cheekbones and her strong strut. She was also one of the more playful models backstage which made her even more endearing. I am looking forward to seeing more of Ashlee around the traps this week and hopefully i'll be lucky enough to shoot her one day.

This one was kinda hard for me to review because I really don't know if I liked it or not, I'm kinda torn. So i'll just jot my thoughts down here and then let you decide whether I liked it or not. So here goes...

Oblivion is a Sci-Fi Action - one of my favourite genre's - directed by Joseph Kosinski and starring Tom Cruise, Andrea Riseborough, Olga Kurylenko and Morgan Freeman. Sci-Fi's can be a little complex to sum up but i'll give it a shot without giving away too much plot - There was a war on earth between some no-good aliens and humans, earth was almost destroyed because hey we've never let the earth get in the way of a good war before, now it's practically inhabitable, there's a love triangle, some gorilla warfare and all is not as it seems! Tom Cruise plays a dude called Jack for the third time in his career - gotta love those all American four letter names. Victoria (Riseborough) is his number one lady until old girl Julia (Kurylenko) drops out of thin air, literally, and Jack begins to realise he is not quite the 'man' he thought he was.

Ok so my issues with this movie... at times the score was so big and majestic it sounded like a bit of a joke. Like they were trying to be cool and retro like the Tron score but just couldn't pull it off. Olga Kurylenko wanders around like a bewildered bunny rabbit for the entire movie, and hey i'd be pretty spaced out too if I just fell come on girlfriend give me something! The BIG EARTH MOVING LOVE that is supposed to be between Jack and Julia must have been left on Pluto because I didn't feel a thing in my usually overly sensitive heart AND they skimped on using Morgan Freeman - you can't skimp on Morgan bloody Freeman! But what rubbed me up wrong the most was I felt I had kinda seen this movie already, a much better version with a much smaller budget. It was very reminiscent of Moon so I felt like I saw the twists and turns coming from a lightyear away. Oh oh and the ending wraps up waaaaaaaaay too neatly. Lame. Like leave me a little unsettled and wanting man!

On the upside, the visuals were really topnotch so it was good to watch. I did actually like the storyline, even though i'd seen it before, it was just a bit lacking in areas (mainly the ending). I enjoyed the performance of newcomer Andrea Riseborough who was perfectly cold and clinical and I was stoked to see Kiwi action chic and all round mad bitch Zoe Bell amongst the cast. 

So I guess when looking at my paragraph on what I didn't like and what I did like it becomes pretty obvious how I felt about this movie. But I think I am being overly critical and would say most people would quite enjoy Oblivion so it's worth a looksy. 

I'm keen to hear your thoughts on Obvlivion so feel free to leave me a comment...

Warm Bodies

OH EM GEE the world has been taken over by zombies!... again.

We just can't seem to get enough of this flesh eating genre and the screenwriters are starting to get pretty creative with their apocalyptic storytelling. The latest zombie offering is Warm Bodies, directed by Jonathan Levine and starring Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer. R (Holt) is a zombie with heart. He likes to meet his zombie friend at the local bar, collect knick knacks and listen to old records because it makes him feel more "alive". Then, one ordinary day while out hunting human brain for dins, he stumbles into the path of zombie fighter Julie (Palmer). He instantly falls in love and kidnaps her... my kinda guy. Julie and R eventually strike up a friendship and everything they thought they knew starts to change. 

So this is a Zombie Romance Comedy (weeeird). Zombies, check. Romance, check. Comedy, half check. It was just slightly lacking in the laughs department and they showed most of the funny bits in the trailer. I feel like they really underused the comedic talents of goofy but pretty actress Analeigh Tipton, who with a bit more screen time could have really given the film some kick. But at the end of the day it's a bit of fun and I enjoyed watching it. After leaving the cinema, I said to my boyfie "I thought it was cute" to which he dryly responded "It was the Twilight of zombie movies". Ouch. Sooooo it's probably not going to appeal to everyone but if you're feeing a little brain dead (get it?) and feel like some easy watching then give Warm Bodies a go.

Happy Friday Rock n Rollers!

Miami Marketta

Last Friday I made my way down to the Miami Marketta for the first time and once I got there I wondered 'why the hell haven't I been here before?'. The marketta is held at Rabbit + Cocoon, the artistic hub for Gold Coast creatives. By day, it's an industrial area filled with independent fashion and homeware stores as well as travelling artists. It's also home to Rabbit Radio station.  

The marketta was bustling with locals of all ages and cultures who had braved the wind and the rain to listen to live music, eat amazing gourmet fast food and cruise the stalls looking for that one off piece that blew their mind. I've got to say, the Gold Coast has been absolutely crying out for something like this and it's about time someone took note from Melbourne and Sydney to bring us a night market full of so much creativity and energy. 

I took the old snapper along, here are a few pretty things that caught my eye...
