Model Kristen Parlievet

This winter has bought some beautiful moody skies to Sydney which not only allows even light to fall on the model, but also allows for some cracker moodscapes.

I had model Kristen Parlevliet come to Sydney from Melbourne and we created some great images.

So first to the #moodscape! I was feeling sad as a creative project of mine had just finished due to the incorrect logistics forecasting (yes…not my strength, as a photographer). So I wanted to create an image that showed how I was feeling.

This was a first for me as I usually would just create “beautiful images,” and not think through the mood I was in. However I was very aware of this and wanted to channel this sad feeling in my images.

So this is the finished product:















































Kristen has the most AMAZING smile that makes anyone feel happy, just by being around it.



So I also created some beautiful shots showing her great personality. I just waited until I was in a better mood before I edited them, so they would be as vibrant as possible!

















































Thank you to Emerald city hotels for providing accommodation for Kristen. The hotel is located on Cremorne point, which is an amazing part of Sydney overlooking the harbour.



















We also created some photos inside the penthouse of Cremorne Point Manor. If you are planning to get married, it is the perfect place to get ready with the girls and have the backdrop of a lifetime in your photos.

Cant wait for more!

Stopping a creative project is very hard. You feel a sense of loss. I can only describe that in an image. This photo I created on Monday the same day I announced my creative project Chocumin was no longer.

How to look good in photo's

Kate Branch née Kate Shearer
Many years ago.....I look so serious!



























Wow. There has been quite allot of movement with my book "How to look good in photo's" Last month it hit the top 30 in lifestyle photography on Amazon. Glad to see you are all striking a pose! Here is a #flashback to my modelling days (long ago....before the I-phone!)

Thanks Amazon for the amazing experience. I never thought I would write a book, but I had so many tips and tricks I wanted to share and how many workshops can a girl run! Xx

Holidays



One cannot collect all the beautiful shells on the beach.One can collect only a few, and they are
more beautiful if they are few....
