We had planned for some early morning golden light but a lack of sleep and lack of alarm meant we had to improvise. It rained on us the entire time we were at this location, however looking back over the images I feel it added to the theme we were going for. This image draws relevance to the relaxed, classic styling of the Winston and compliments its earthy tones.
This is probably my favourite image of the entire shoot. I am super pumped on how this Heritage Green suit turned out and really wanted to compliment the modern design yet vintage feel. Ive had this location in my mind for a while and the weather this day couldn't have been better for this scene. Everything came together to capture this shot, timeless, classic, vintage and future all wrapped up in a beautiful wintery backdrop. Nick's colonial hair style sets it off nicely.
This more of a funny image than a favourite, well I guess that sort of makes it a favourite. After shooting the first two locations Nick was wet and starting to get hungry which led to slight frustration. We had a long drive to the third location and pulled over to shoot a few images for textures last minute along the way. As nick was suiting up a man pulled over and politely informed us the owner would shoot us if we were seen on his property. We thanked him kindly for the information and proceeded none the less. Naturally it was a rushed ordeal that Nick wasn't overly impressed with, in our haste Nick over ruled my warning of the spanking new electric fence that had been installed. Moments later he had a few hundred volts running through his body and there was no need for that second caffeine pick me up.
Nothing beats a good hedge texture, especially one as meticulously looked after as this. I stumbled across this particular hedge whilst flicking through a friends wedding portfolio book. I instantly knew it had to be used in the look-book, we drove almost 2 hours just for this image and almost turned around owing to its location being amongst a private and exclusive residence that belonged to a wealthy individual. The sign at the entrance read - Private Property, entry strictly by appointment only. Thankfully the owner was understanding and willing to overlook the two barefooted men casually strolling through the immaculate gardens. He didn't even flinch when Nick popped around the corner and resurfaced wearing rubber attire. What of it.
This is my second favourite suit in the collection and the final image of the day. The goal was to find a scene that matched the tones of the suit. Navy, Black and Earthy Cashew. The rock platforms and cliff edges of the Sth Coast instantly sprang to mind, however this particular spot was not my first choice. It had been a long day and truth be told neither of us could be bothered enduring a 1hr detour for a single shot, so we headed home and this location happened to be sitting under our nose in our own backyard. A short afternoon stroll around the headland and we found the perfect setting. Its pretty crazy how at home the suit is in this image, the added textures of the platform and uniform lines with reflection were a bonus.
