Affinity. Closeness. Longing for connection. These shared experiences are what elevate our lives beyond mere existence. Good or bad, they are the muse for poetry, the rhythm of music, and the ‘heart’ in our heart. This body of work is about exploring just that: our humanity seen through how we connect with something outside ourselves. That moment when we bare our souls and open our hearts.

Hollywood Hills

There's that old saying, you should never look back you should only look forward so contrary to that I's like to share our last big shoot of 2012 with you.

The Orchard Team ended the year on a high note with a successful shoot in Hollywood after a pretty gruelling work schedule. There wasn't a lot of time to see the sights, sleep or socialise but the client was happy and we worked with a fantastic team of people from Grey. Here are some pics of the house we rented in the Hollywood hills as a base. Thanks Tash for putting a pic of me power-napping in, but in my defence, this was after pulling an all-nighter!

Hollywood House

We were shooting sets in a studio as well as in outdoor locations. With rain for three of the five days our talented lighting tech, Nat Dinham and second shooter Nat Hunfalvay had their work cut out for them. Angela was kept busy file handling and keeping things rolling while I was shooting on the sets. A big thanks to all our team and our gorgeous clients and agency. Great shoot and results!
