My chat with Alys.
I’d been wanting to connect with Alys Hale (the writer), after reading her article ‘Mind Meets Body’ (Russh Magazine June/July ‘18). I did some digging (erm, stalking), and quickly discovered that among being a stellar wordsmith, she is also one of Australia’s premier fashion models with IMG Australia. And just quietly, she once body-doubled for Kate Moss.
“I’d love to shoot with you sometime”, sounded a lot better in my mind than “I’d like to talk to you about your words”.
One smooth (business-oriented) slide into her DMs + an email to her booker; our photo date was set.

Beauty. Raw, sensual and organic in it’s original form, evolving into a kaleidoscope of colour as it’s alluring chameleon like qualities draw us in to create and build upon the canvas with which we have been gifted. Will our chosen palette become a part of our truest self or will it simply become a mask that we carefully place over that which was once pure… Photographs: Dave Blake, Muse: Beth Hurrell (Que Models), Hair Makeup: Valentina Pintus, Post: Rhiannon Jansma, Words: Jenni Sellan.Read More

Behind the scenes
A little glimpse into what goes into creating our pictures | Annie is a top International Model (with IMG) visiting Australia [she's also in competition with her boyfriend to see who can visit all of the continents first]. We connected on Instagram over a year ago. Valentina is an Australian Makeup Artist of the year finalist 2017, and a good friend. The location is the home of my similarly good friend and fellow photographer, James Lanchester (those are his kids, below). We all love to travel, and we all love creating amazing pictures. If you're into gear, I'm a Nikon shooter. For this I used a Nikon D810, 85mm 1.4, 50mm 1.8, 2 x Profoto B2s, Photek Softlighter 60", MacBook Pro 15", CaptureOne, Lightroom & Photoshop (all used in my workflow at some point).
