Do you ever think about what you need in your life and what you don't need? Or more to the point, stripping your life back to the basic necessities. Well I sort of did that about a week ago, by booking a trip to the Gold Coast and getting away from my life in Sydney for what was way not long enough. But in the time I was away, I managed to shoot an editorial for LaMode and take in a different part of Australia, and give myself some time to think about what I need more of in my life and what I don't need and the conclusion I came up with, is that, if you live in a city or rat race as we sometimes like to call it. You definitely need time out and some of us need more time out than others. And for me it made me realise that this is something that I may have to do more often and that is take trips like this more often and do two things.
A: Re-charge my batteries
B: Allow myself to reflect and re-plan what I need to do for the next 3-6 months, thats if things aren't going to plan of course.
And that is what life is all about right ....planning.
And on that point I was so lucky to work with the ever charming and beautiful Louise Pollard for this shoot. Who would of thought that you can shoot swimwear in the middle of Winter? Well only when you are in the Gold Coast, and only when you have "Winter Fever"
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.
