The new Lydia

It was a cold morning on Melbourne Cup day on one of  Sydney’s Northern Beaches, and the rain and wind were undecided about their direction and strength- but it was also 15 year old Lydia’s first EVER photo shoot, and she wasn’t about to let the weather get her down.
She moves like someone who’s been modelling for years, it was hard to believe that Lydia had never sat for a photo session before. Ever…! The crew and I put it down to her Tahitian dance experience. Lydia is part Russian and part Cook Islander. It’s the make-up for her exotic features and strong build, and so it won’t be long until Victoria’s Secret casting director John Pfeiffer gets wind of her. Discovered by her hairstylist together with IMG Australia’s Danielle Ragenard, Lydia is destined for stardom. So fresh is Lydia to the modelling scene, she isn’t even currently on the IMG website as her images are still being developed. The future looks bright for her though,  it’s onwards and upwards from here.

Rosie Tupper for ELLE Vietnam June 2013

This week, ELLE Vietnam released a story that I shot for them back in January this year with photographer Matthew Ryder. I’m so proud of the results we achieved. Sourcing product from the Asian counterparts for the luxury labels and the Australian PR offices across the new year period is not an easy task. I received my brief two days before Christmas and had to action it immediately, maintaining contact as much as possible through the break and into the first days of January.  Our shoot date was scheduled for the 12th Jan. I went back and forth between the Australian contacts and their Asia-Pacific sister offices tracking down specific looks from the Spring 2013 collections.
We were able to mix in a number of Australian labels who have generated a presence overseas, and we worked with Perth beauty Rosie Tupper to give the quintessential Aussie beach vibe. This particular photographic treatment would have to be one of my favourites, where the skin tones are pink and creamy, with soft grain. Hope you love the muted colour palette in the clothes also.
