After doing two photo shoots on the weekend that I feel very pleased with, I can feel my creative juices stirring again. I’ve reached out to a couple of guys that I want to photograph and one or two others have reached out to me. That always feels nice when someone sees my work and wants to work together.
The timing isn’t great as summer has all of a sudden disappeared here in Sydney and Autumn has hit hard with lots of rain this week. I doubt all the good weather is gone though and there will no doubt be some days warm enough to coax some beautiful men to disrobe for shoots out in cool locations. There are also a couple of ideas floating around in my head for studio shoots.
We are working on a project at work which isn’t for a client but rather a “play” project that is going to be hopefully very well executed to show off the agency. We all came up with ideas and it was one of mine that was selected and as such I’m doing the Creative Direction on it. My own personal shoots are a bit more relaxed. I have an idea of a look and a vibe that I’m going for, find a location and a model and props that work and just play. This work one is a much more planned project and I’m feeling the pressure but it’s really making me flex my creative muscles. I thought I’d lost them to be honest.
