The hardest part of being a new photographer is acquiring resources. Basically because every shoot you do is a combination of elements  and the end result can only be as strong as the weakest part of it. If you don’t have great equipment, good light, good location, great people on your team – you can never really achieve everything you hope from your endeavour. That’s why I’m so excited to post this, because I’m finally at the stage where I can co-ordinate some amazing resources, an incredible model – one of the brightest talents hair and makeup talents in Australia – and a premium studio to shoot in… not to mention some of Australia’s best fashion! What does mean? Well it does conclude that the weakest link is myself! Thankfully, this shoot turned out exactly as I dreamed and I had the best time snapping it. I hope you like!

Thanks so much to all the designers involved for contributing these looks to my editorial, to Max May, Valerija and  for doing what they do best and Mondo Studio and my incredible assistant Nikki To for making things so easy for me. I love my job!!!
