Here’s a few shots of the bundle of Irish awesome, TaraTree…one super quick stroll along the beach followed by some shots around the pool!
No wonder I was exhausted! What a great time I had though!
My only regret? I didn’t shoot Rei… 🙁
That’s all we could say for the longest time after this shoot. Bananas! Bananas! Bananas!
It wouldn’t stop raining. Little did I know that Tully Gorge was the rainiest area in all of Australia. We made do with the umbrella though, so that’s alright. 😉
On the way into the rainforest we stopped for shoppits and dockets at the local gas station. I still don’t understand that.
Every year we have slide show nights and last year we started giving away little prizes for the most entertaining slide shows. One’s that keep your attention, move at a welcoming pace and use imagination in producing something to showcase their images. Malcolm Grant won the photographer side of things. He won a copy of Aperture 3.
Here’s one of the images he shot this year at Mission Beach during ZoeFest 2010.
I love working with Rei. I wish I could do it more often. I wish they all could be California models.
In the land down under, it takes a lot to disturb others. They generally pass by with a curious look and go on their way without much fanfare. I asked parents with children if they cared before we did this and the response was, “Well, I reckon that’d be alright.” And the look was astoundingly that of “Why ask? Just do it.” So I was able to do something that would have gotten us all arrested in the United States and had a blast doing it. One lady even stopped to applaud us. Oh, just to be back there.
I asked all of the lovely ladies to pose for me in the blue and purple bathroom, and most of them I shot with my home made bendy lens, a tradition I started with my second shoot. Sadly I didn’t think to shoot Carly with it, so you’ll have to be satisfied with a straight lens image of her in the bath…Love how the lens gives a painted feel to some of the images….(The missing tenth shoot was when I photographed d-eye in the pool, so no bathroom bendies for him)
I’m home, and finally have some free time, thank you all SO much for being so patient and friendly!!! Here are a few shots that I’ve processed so far…..Looking forward to catching up with you all again sometime!
