First Time Modelling

Taking photos is not the only thing that aspiring creatives need to be an expert in. Getting the best out of the people you are taking images of is essential!

This particular image was captured when Nav wasn't paying attention. She thought I was playing around with the settings for a moment.

Learn how to make a rapport with people. It's only when they trust you that you will be able to get the best out of them.

"constant feedback and an upbeat energy on your part will shine through from your model."

Contrary to what everyone thinks, getting those beautiful images is not as simple or as natural as it seems. It's only when everyone involved is comfortable with what is happening that things will click into place.

Straight down the barrel, lying on the floor on a cold, funky autumn Melbourne morning. Modelling isn't for the faint hearted.

If you're serious about your creative endeavors then you must be the ultimate professional. Don't take a year to get those shots to the model. It won't do you any good, in fact word will quickly spread that you're not the professional you claim to be.

“Be original, show off your style, and tell your story.”


Don't stop shooting when the #model stops posing. Some of my best shots come in those times between the #poses.

Be Strategic

Getting the images you are after will take time. Sometimes the shoot just doesn't work the way you want it to. Make sure you get the 'bread and butter' shots to keep the model happy.

Above all,

“Be original, show off your style, have fun and tell your story.”
