I think every city that you live in or have visited has it's hidden treasures in some shape or form. For Sydney my current home town, the city is ever growing by the year. Which leads me on to my latest treasure that I found. And that is "The Barangaroo" site and what a architecture site it is too. From a distance it looks like something that has landed from outer space and rather than being man made. But up close you will see how much work has gone into designing and building it.
This editorial was about creating a set of pictures that reflected not only how "I" saw Barangaroo, but also how I think it was suppose to be built and seen. Which again is the reason why I have shot this in black&white with a splash of colour.
Winter here in Australia is cold but not as cold as the Northern Hemisphere. At least it doesn't snow in Sydney CBD which is a good thing.

Walk With Me
Being fashion forward is never easy anywhere you go in the world. But I would always like to think that Australia has some of the best fashion there is to offer. Even though I am from New Zealand, Sydney is home to me and always will be or at least for now.
So when I got the opportunity to shoot this editorial with Nicola Finetti, I jumped at the chance to work with his clothes. Add one of my favourite models to date and you have something pretty special. Nicola's clothes have so much character and form.
Cinematic would be the best word to describe this editorial with Valentina. Not only did she move gracefully from shot to shot, her presents on set was second to none. Fun fact .....I first worked with Valentina two and half years ago. In that time this was the 8th time I have worked with her. I haven't worked with a model more times than her, enough said.
