Women’s fitness photography sessions

fitness-photography-session 002

A women’s fitness photography session is a great way to top off your 8 or 12 week body challenge. Reward your hard work with a fitness photography session with us and immortalise your amazing results. You worked hard for it so record those results and be proud of what you have achieved.

You are welcome to combine a bit of glamour, nude or boudoir in with your fitness session so that you can get some variety in your images or you can just keep it all to fitness. It is completely up to you. Our women’s fitness photography sessions include a relaxing makeover by one of our amazing makeup artist (hair and makeup), plus you will receive help with your posing and styling. We shoot both natural light and flash and you can have some of each. Our dark studio using flash lighting is great for those dramatic toned, shadowed images that can bring up your muscle toning & our natural light studio is great for the softer glamour/boudoir images. It is completely up to you which way you would like to go.

Model photography session for Lindsay

model-photography-session 005

This was a model photography session for Lindsay Kotmel from Brisbane. Lindsay wanted a folio of images to take to an agency so that she could pick up some modelling whilst she is studying.

Some helpful tips and information for aspiring models.

Some modelling agencies will offer to do your model photography for you, but they will retain ownership of the images. This means that if you decide to move onto another agent, you won’t be able to take your photos. If you have your model photography done by an independent photographer you will retain the ownership of your images. If your not happy with your agent, you simply move onto another one, with your images.

Before you have your photography session you should know what sort of model you wish to be. You need to match your body type to your modelling goal. These are generally the requirements for each style of modelling.

A Plus-Sized Model: If your body is full and curvaceous, you may be able to be a plus size model.

A Runway Model: Most women on the catwalk are at least 5’8 and commonly small-breasted. Men are mostly between 5’11 and 6’2.

A Print Model: Most editorial female models are at least 5’7, but a beautiful face with great personality are the most important features for print models.

An Underwear Model: For women, this requires large breasts but small hips. For men, this requires broad shoulders but slim waists.

An Alternative Model: Some agencies hire alternative models: models who do not conform to the industry “standards” of beauty, height, and weight. Additionally, having a specific passion or cause that you’re working towards can help open doors that may be closed due based on a body feature that does not “fit industry standards”.

Other Types of Modelling: If you don’t fit any of the face or body descriptions, perhaps you can be a foot, hair, or hand model.

It is also a good idea to practice some posing before you come in for your session so that you are more comfortable when you’re in front of the camera. We will help you with posing but you should know a few basic poses. Stand in front of the mirror and practice at least 3 different poses and become comfortable with them. Look online to see what poses you like and what you can manage.

During your model photography session with us, you will gain valuable experience in regards to what you can expect if you get modelling work. We keep our work age appropriate and will not photograph nude or topless work for under 18yrs. Underage models are in a safe environment with us, with images being 100% age appropriate at all times and mothers are most welcome to be in the sessions at all times.

Once you have your edited images you can present yourself to a few different agencies & choose the one that suits you and your modelling style the best. You should not have to pay to join an agency since you will already have your own images.

Halloween photography session with Amie & Jess.

halloween-shoot 002

This week we had a fantastic Halloween inspired session with two amazing models and a great makeup team. Our models are Amie and Jess and the creative team of Vee and Vania Stockwell did the awesome makeup and blood (so much blood). Styling was a combination of all involved.

Amie agreed to be our vampire and Jess agreed to be our zombie. The girls loved the halloween photography session and had a lot of fun playing up to their part. This was a lot of fun for Dean and I and a change from “all things pretty”.

Photography and editing of course was my wonderful husband, Dean.

Here is a link to our photography galleries.

Commercial fashion photography for Unique Mouton

Commercial fashion for Unique Mouton 014

This is the 3rd year we have photographed the new season Ugg boots for Unique Mouton. These Ugg boots are made in Australia from Australian sheep skin and exported to Japan by Yuko Crease. Each year Yuko arrives with stunning Ugg boots using colour, patterns, crystals & buttons to add extravagance to her Uggs.

We always have a great time during our session with Yuko and this year was no exception. We started in the studio for a few sets and ventured to Hope Island for a park and a marina shot, and then onto the spit at South Port for the beach image.

This year we used Felicity Boughen as our model. We photographed Felicity earlier this year when she came to us for a model folio session in the hopes of kicking off a modelling career. We were so impressed with her on the day that we thought of her when Yuko asked for a blonde model for this year. Felicity did a great job. All in all it was a successful day.

Here are links to the last 2 yrs sessions with Unique Mouton: 2012 & 2013

Commercial photographer Brisbane- vintage session for Sierra Rose Designer Homewares

vintage pinup sierra rose 016

Sierra Rose Designer Homewares needed a commercial photographer to photograph their new range of vintage aprons and accessories. After seeing our other commercial work as well as our vintage pinup work, they chose us for this awesome project. We all had such a lot of fun shooting this session and our models were just perfect for this project.

The aprons were for adults and children and the young model was the daughter of Vicki, the owner and creator of Sierra Rose. We were lucky enough to find the amazing venue belonging to Nevis Garth who has transformed her home into a 50’s – 60’s haven, complete with a diner and juke box. Nevis has a room full of vintage outfits and accessories and nicknacks absolutely everywhere.

Our wonderful models were Jessica McGuiness and Sierra Simms. Hair and makeup was by Monique Torres.

Fitness & glamour photography for Rebecca

Rebecca 1

Rebecca is a senior radiologist who came to us for a glamour and fitness photography session combined. She has been on a 12 week challenge and this shoot was her gift to herself for all of the hard work and effort she has put in during the past months.

I think it’s fair to say that Rebecca is the epitome of the beautiful, independent, strong modern woman.

If you would like a glamour or fitness, or combined session please contact Karen on 0402 230669 or email for further information.

A lovely comment from Rebecca –

“I meant to email you when I received the DVD! I am actually quite overwhelmed with the quality of service you both offer and could not be happier with the pictures. I have received sooo much positive feedback from people who have looked at the images. Thanks again for making it such a great experience for me 🙂 It has spurred me on to go further with my regime and enter some competitions for fitness magazines. Thanks again! xox Bec”

Model folio session for Jade

Model folio for Jade Dyer 006

Model folio for Jade Dyer 001

Jade is about to turn 18 and came to see us for a model folio. Jade was a quick study and had a natural ability to form and hold a pose once shown. Her homework now will be to practice her poses until they come naturally.

We photograph a lot of first time young models and we are very patient with them. Our aim during the session is, of course, to get the best images possible at the end of the session, but also to teach the girls some basics and give them an idea of what to expect in the “real world” of a working model. At the end of the session they should be spinning with new information and busting to do it all again.

If you would like to book a model folio session with us please contact Karen on 0402 230669 or email on this link.

You will find information on a model folio session with us on this link.

Model folio for Stefanie

Model folio for Stefanie

Stefanie searched for a Brisbane photographer who could deliver a great model folio to take to the local agencies for modelling and promotional work. After scouring the internet she decided that she loved our work and thought that we were the best fit for her, so she booked her session.

This was the first photo shoot for Stefanie and she was nervous, as are most of the clients that come to us but she quickly put the nerves aside and got into the swing of it all. She was very happy with the results and has gained work already from her images.

We received this text from her recently which is fantastic. We love to hear back from clients in the months following their session.

“Hi Karen!

Hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Years. Just wanted to say a huge thank you for those photos again as I have now been signed with aurora models and had a couple other shoots as well. So I got absolutely everything I wanted out of that shoot!! Thanks again and best wishes for this year 🙂 Stef”

Madeline Cowe – Miss World Australia 2016

madeline-cowe-fashion-photoshoot 019

Congratulations to Madeline Cowe who has just been crowned “Miss World Australia” for 2016.

Here are some images from our model folio session with Madeline. From the moment we started to photograph Madeline, we knew she had what it took to go far in the world of modelling and she has not proved us wrong.

A word of advice about your images:

Some modelling agencies will offer to do your model photography for you, but they will retain ownership of the images. This means that if you decide to move onto another agent, you won’t be able to take your photos. If you have your model photography done by an independent photographer you will retain the ownership of your images. If your not happy with your agent, you simply move onto another one, with your images.
