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 at Nine

I recently did a publicity shoot for Channel Nine's News and Weather presenter, Amber Sherlock.  We had some fun with this job and adapted some Hollywood glamour-puss lighting.

For the shoot I used a Profoto Giant reflector which gives a really flattering soft light and captures brilliant highlights. It's a more specular light source than an ordinary soft box. I also used a small softbox on the floor as a second catch-light in Amber's eyes.
