When I write these blurbs for LaMode Magazine I always seem to write about how I pulled the shoot together or what photography tips I may let out of the bag. But on this occasion, I am going to touch on a subject that is pretty sensitive to most people and that is "Politics" .......Something that doesn't mix very well with the fashion industry or most industry's come to think of it. But I would like to take this chance and talk about what Britain has done with the Brexit or hasn't done more to the point. Voting in the Brexit was a big mistake, just one of the repercussions of it will not allow anyone from the UK to live in Europe so in turn, models, designers, photographers and anyone in the industry can not live there dream in another country. Of course you can live in one country for up to 90 days (And not work) but after that you will have to go back to Britain. Not good for anyone who is young and just starting out and wanting to experience a different culture.
Moving on from that subject I thought it was time to shoot something completely different from what I have done in the past 8 to 9 months and that is, shoot a urban editorial. I hope you like it as much as I have created it ........By the way it was styled by yours truly.

The Play On Light
s Photography is all about light .....no light no image. That's why when ever I am shooting for LaMode magazine I get super excited that I have a open book to shoot what I want. So when I decided to document the light festival "Vivid" in Sydney. I thought I would do something different to what everyone else was doing e.g every other photographer.
Rather than shoot the artist installation and show you what it looks like, I wanted to create a different vibe to each picture I shot. Basically what I have done is try and create a different feel with each installation that I have shot and capture the vibe of the night by shooting in more a documentary style, which is what I do when ever I shoot a culture editorial for LaMode magazine ......I hope that I have done that.
I have also included a couple of video's as well. As a lot of the installations have what I would be describe it .....moving parts. There is a lot of colour at Vivid which is really cool for any photographer that enjoy's shooting in that medium but what I like the most about Vivid is that you can always try and push the boundaries when you shoot with what you have put in front of you.
Enjoy "Play On Light"
