Brand shoots take a lot of hard work and planning if you want them to work for your client. And this one was no exception, it was two weeks in the making, but we got there in the end and the final pics from the shoot are below. It was for a bag brand called VonRoutee and it was for there social media campaign and website so the images had to be spot on and represent what they are all about. Mood boards and a lot of references where used to get the final shots that we where after.
Working for a brand, is so different to working for a editorial for LaMode Magazine, because the brief is so much more tighter than what you would normally do if you are shooting for yourself. There are shoots where you can make it up as you go along and there are shoots where you have to plan to get what you want. And this is one of those shoots. But then again planning is always the key to anything you do if you want to be successful. I got to shoot in the urban landscape of Newtown, Sydney which was fun, there is so much to chose from in and around Newtown to create the images that we wanted. I also loved working with the models Paris and Otti who are a actual couple of real life.

Mind set, what is it? It’s attitude, how we think and what I think is the most important one our decision making. I have met so many people that just can’t stay above the line. And what is that I ask you? Being accountable for your own actions, is probable the most important one for me but taking control of everything you do. Remember that you are where you are today because you want to be not because you have to be.
How do you control it …..easy. By being accountable for everything you do. And that is where planning comes into play. You plan your day your week and and month. Ok sometimes it doesn’t happen the way you want it to but you learn from that and come back with a better one.
If you ever want to achieve your goals it has more to do with your mind rather than accomplishment. Each stone you lay down is one step closer to where you want to go, and how you get there is the fun part?? Am I right .......well if you have read this far you may think that it doesn't work, but it does. If you don't have the right thinking and mind set you won't move forward. Think about it for a minute if you think negatively then you will most likely fall over or even worst move backward. And I think that is the reason why a lot of people get stuck in one place. I have written a lot about this on my instagram, so if you want to check out my instagram page please do so via this link :https://www.instagram.com/photography_by_geoffreychuah
So to finish up and put this in a bow tie so to speak, think before you act and always plan ahead as that way you can never always look into the future, but you can plan for it.
,I always like to think that this online magazine is on a Global Scale, so why do you think I can call this online magazine a global magazine. One word "internet" and now that the internet plays a big part in our lives you can access anything anywhere, not to mention LaMode magazine. I know that this is a big call by saying that this is a global magazine. But isn't that quote true? every online magazine is a global magazine, for the one reason that you can access it anywhere anytime and not have to worry about walking into a new agent and buying it, to read and check out the visuals. So this is the reason why I can post swimwear in April and know that I will still get a audience not only here in Australia but in the Northern hemisphere as well.
Moving forward, the locations that we have to chose from here in Australia are not only unreal and beautiful but so divine and easy to work with. The light can be a bit hard to work with but I love working with natural light and because the day of our shoot it was sunny, that made it even better, to bring a happy and radiant vibe to the shoot and the final pictures that you see I think reflect that.
Just quick thank you to We The Dreamers swimwear for being a .......well dream to work with.

The Never Ending Summer
Australia is not a tropical country, but what you can say about it is that we get our far share of good weather all year around. It only gets cold for about 3 months of the year and the rest of the time it stay's pretty warm to say the least. This is why I am still able to shoot swimwear in March and not have my models being cold, you got to love that don't you?
Shape and form are the two most important things you are looking for in a swimwear shoot. I don't care how tall or short you are it is all about being in proportion and for this reason, I loved working with the ever so charming and devine Claudia from Bella Management. The location was Chinamans Beach on the North Shore, Sydney, not easy to fine mind you. It's a amazing location with golden sand and beautiful clear water. Have heard the saying that a picture holds a thousand words? This time around I am letting that quote speak for it's self.
Enjoy the "Never Ending Summer"
