Eight calls, all to you.

So I decided to try something crafty again for this shoot to achieve that coloured reflection. I took off my glasses and put it up near the corner of the lens and twirled it around until I could see the neon reflected in my frame. I caught some other street or car lights as well and it surprisingly made the same angle as her shoulder! It’s invisible lines like these that sometimes make a shoot look more harmonious, even if it’s not obvious in the frame.

Can’t believe how far for an angel he fell, weak on the floor so he called her cell

If there’s one skill I’m really proud to have gained this year, it’s the ability to have true faith in myself. I’ve never felt so confident with my decisions and place in life, and it’s kind of surreal. I’m less sure of what I want but I have absolute trust in my own abilities that whatever I do will lead me to a path that I’m happy with. I’ve never felt it this strongly in the past few years and it’s crazy how secure I feel right now. Have you ever felt the same way?

Not all dreams disappear when you wake up
Model: @denissahady
Funny story! As we were shooting this pic we were approached by three drunk guys who wanted to be a part of the shoot. One of the guys was like “Are you on drugs? Why are you wearing sunglasses at night” 😂 and then he wanted a photo with @jessicaliuuu but I was like “You can get a photo, but not with her”. He was pretty clear that he wanted to take a pic with Jessica but we quickly took a snap of him and walked away, and as we were leaving he was like to Jessica “You’re the love of my life!” HAHA I guess she found herself a boyfriend in Melbourne!

Love is a chemical reaction

What a fun shoot with Denissa! It was kind of spontaneous since she told me she was going to leave Melbourne the night after, so we only had a few hours to shoot. The original plan was to get some sunset shots and then move to neon as it gets dark, but by the time I finished work and got into the city the sun had already come down a lot! I literally felt like I was chasing the light haha. Nonetheless, we got some really great photos with the help of @jessicaliuuu and bumping into some other Melbourne creatives on the way! Have you ever felt the rush of chasing golden hour light?

Baby I’ve been trying but you can’t hear what I say
Model: @denissahady
Whatever you want to achieve, don’t quit! I’ve been listening to a podcast about how people built their brands and businesses and there is a recurring pattern in their behaviour: they never gave up. Even if there are other people telling you how bad your idea is or how wrong you are, if you believe it will take you one step closer to your dreams then you should absolutely follow it. You might only be one email away from landing that client, one song away from going viral, or one photo away from achieving your dreams. .

Just a friendly reminder to take care of yourself. If you’re not feeling productive, take a quick stroll around the block and (literally) smell the roses. Sometimes when I feel really grateful and appreciative my creative juices start flowing and I can be more productive. Take some time away from your screen connect with those around you. Remind them why you appreciate them and give them a hug! I did this last week at the library and the guy next to me was like "Wtf bro?" Just kidding. Kind of ..

Sometimes when we're feeling stagnant in our craft, it can be difficult to gain momentum again. One thing that I've found useful is creating things around the brand of the craft to help reignite that fire. In my case, if I'm not feeling it with photography, I will begin to organise a photowalk or piece together ideas for a workshop. I just recorded a podcast episode for the first time as well, and for me it's these other things that surround my photography brand that can get my creative juices flowing again.

Positive recognise positive
Model: @jeou
One of the realest things I've learnt throughout the year is that people who lift up others, rise to the top. In other words, if you are helping someone else grow, you will grow with them. I've been doing this since I was very young and it's something I wish more people had the courage to do. A lot of us are focused too much on the short term gain, myself included at times. But there's no better way to build relationships than to help others first in an authentic and genuine way. Positive recognise positive.

I put up a poll asking you if you’d like to edit some of my photos, and I got an overwhelming response of interest! It’s such an honour for me that you want to collaborate with my work, and so I compiled a variety of photos for you who are interested to try out. Whether you’re an expert in photo editing or you just want to try something new, I’ll have my photos available for you to download in the link in my bio! I’ll keep it up for a few days, can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Fall in this empty void
Model: @leejeajea
I always get asked, "where do you see yourself in five years?" I'm always hesitant to answer these kinds of questions, like, I don't know what industry I'll be in, what technologies are out there, what kind of people I'll meet. Even if there is no correct answer, my response will feel like a limitation. Also, this is actually quite an old set from December, for some reason I never decided to post it (until now of course!) .

I just want to quickly say thank you to all of the club members who attended the @monashphotographyclub workshop a couple nights ago! It was a great experience for me to be able to share some of my thoughts and experiences with photography, I hope you got some insights or inspiration out of it! I’m super glad that I got some great feedback from my workshop, it was my first one and I didn’t know what to expect! I also felt like I was most valuable during the Q&A session, there were some really great questions and I always give my answer with thought and consideration. If you want to follow up or ask me a question, I’m always available. Til next time! .

I'm super excited to be sharing my story and thoughts tonight at @monashphotographyclub ! It'll be my first ever speaking experience and I'm honoured to be given the opportunity. I always consider myself a student of the craft and it wasn't so long ago that I still didn't know what my style was. I'm grateful and humbled. Can't wait to see some of you tonight!
