Welcome back to LaMode Magazine. I know that I have been a little dormant of late, but I can say that I am back and here to stay. I have been busy shooting editorials for LaMode Magazine and you will see them in the coming weeks leading up to Chrismas.
If you live in Australia you will notice that the weather is warming up big time which means, good times at the beach. Here is my spin on good times at the beach, not only is being at the beach about being no holds barred, but being comfortable within your own skin and not caring about what other people think of you Right!!! So when I am casting models for shoots for LaMode magazine, that is what I am looking for, a model that is a little bit different not just a pretty girl. That someone who will stand out from the crown and get noticed, that is what I am looking for. I have to admit I don't always get the model that I want, but I would like to think that I come close. Not everyone tans well and not everyone is a size 8-10 with a killer body that is why I work with models who have unique features.
I worked with Giovanna from Bella Management for this editorial, she has curves and a x-factor that is second to none. Not to mention she is great to work with which always makes my job easier over the course of the shoot, which by the way was very quick. You see planning is the key and knowing what you want, rather than shoot and shoot and shoot and end up with 1000's of images that I won't use and won't look at is not only wasting my own time but everyone else's.
So the next time you are at the beach don't just make a impression make a Splash!!!!

The last heaven
I love the beach and Summer, no two ways about it. Which is the reason why I spend a lot of the time shooting at the beach, take a click on some of my swim shoots and you will see why I love shooting with a beach setting. I have been lucky enough to have worked with some amazing models and some very special swim brands. So you most be thinking that you must have to have a cool beach location to produce some of the pretty cool pics you may have seen in my swim section .....and the answer to that is YES. And that is the reason why I have shot this editorial on Tamarama Beach. Not with a model but the beach it's self and some of it's surroundings.
The beach it's self is tucked away between two hill sides which gives it cover from the wind and in turn retains the heat from the sun turning it into a amazing place to visit and sun bake. Don't you worry I have spent many hours chilling out on this beach and have shot a few swimwear editorials as well.
So if you ever get a chance to visit or plan on getting a tan in the Summer, Tamarama beach is the one. Never crowned like Bondi, but still has a ambience that you can soak up and enjoy.
LaMode is a global online magazine in a blog style format, or what I would like to call a blogZine. With a focus on Fashion, Swimwear and Culture editorials. LaMode Magazine is not seasonal with it's editorials because we like to shoot imagery that is on point to what we think will entertain you as the reader with our point of view.
