Take the Nikon Z6 II to the Fashion Runway

My fashion photography career began in 2014 when my good friend, Jess Dempsey encouraged me to shoot street style because I loved fashion, style and people. So off I went and travelled around the world, attending Fashion Weeks to photograph everyday fashionistas. I would patiently wait, scout and capture outstanding outfits, combined with good light and the right moment. This has taught me resilience and how to build a rapport, understand style and take a good photo in 5 mins. Since then I’ve been incredibly fortunate to work for WGSN (global trend forecasting agency) and contribute to online publications like Vogue Australia as a Fashion Film maker. It’s a real pinch-me moment to look back at the years as an ‘outsider’ to now sitting front row at Melbourne Fashion Festival with the latest Nikon Z6II camera.

So here’s a stop motion video to showcase how insanely fast and accurate the face + eye tracking feature, and the 14FPS hyper continuous shooting mode is on the Nikon Z6 II camera. I highly recommend this camera if you want to capture your favourite looks without missing the beat!










Nikon Presents: Z Creator Fashion Photography Workshop coming June 26th

 

Hey!!!👋🏼  How are you guys?

 

It’s been ages but I’m here! Just been buried with business ventures and exciting collaborations.

So here is one I would love to share with you!!!

🔜   Coming 26th of June, I’ve partnered with Nikon Australia to bring you a one day fashion photography workshop.

 

This is what I’ll be covering…

☑️. How to plan for a fashion photoshoot (Featuring Bally fashion)

☑️. How to prepare a photoshoot brief

☑️. How to direct and style a professional model

☑️. The benefits of the mirrorless to create fashion images

 

This will be your chance to play with Nikon mirrorless Z cameras and ask me questions. The mirrorless cameras has literally broaden my photography horizon that I can’t EVEN explain how career-changing it has been for me. It has literally opened the doors to venture into film making and I’m all IN. I find creating compelling + impactful short stories for Brands is incredibly fulfilling because I can add so much emotion and sound to my story-telling. And of-course the mirrorless has enabled me to do just that.

You are probably wondering why now? Well that’s because 5 years ago, the technology wasn’t advanced enough to allow me to be nimble and use two hands. Remember those awful huge gimbals and monopods???

Thank God it’s now possible to be more agile and creative with our angles!

 

Anyway I could go on and on about it, but why not come and join my fashion workshop to find out more?

Enjoy and can’t wait to meet you!

Fashion Editorial: Old Skool Suburbia with Bally and Antoni Topic

Inspired by the outskirts of Melbourne, we are taken back to the 80s with old school television and dvd sets, windows wrapped in gift wrapping paper and greenery. This fashion editorial features my favourite luxury designer brand, Bally and model Antoni Topic (represented by Kult Australia) as the star of this story.

 

Paris Fashion Week 2018 Altuzarra Street Style with the mirrorless Nikon Z7

I would normally stop and ask the model if I can direct and shoot them but this time to my surprise, I met this mega babe London Myers from New York who asked if I could take a photo with me! She has recently walked for Louis Vuitton, Balmain and even shot in Dior’s AW18 lookbook. Of-course I said yes, and then in return I asked if she could do a little short fashion film with me using the mirrorless Nikon Z7. Each individual clips were wifi onto the IPhone XS,  edited in INSHOT application and then uploaded here. Which means, there may be a slight loss of quality. Best way is to edit the film clips directly in Premier, but I wanted to test the wifi functionality which was lightening fast. 

Do you want to see more short films? Please comment below and let me know what you think.
