NOT A PHASE

Saturday, 23 May 2015 | Comments: 1
I've put off releasing this post for a little while - No extreme reason, life suddenly got crazy. I've been caught in a phase these recent weeks, a phase of wanting to sleep all day. Doesn't go too well with the need to study for exams or wanting to put posts out either. I've also gone through - and am still going through this phase of denim. I've never been a fan of denim from a young age, the notions that denim is tight, cold upon wearing it, not flexible and looks too basic just got to my head. I guess these notions are what stopped me from wearing denim for the past 10 years or so. My hero, Service Britomart came to my rescue, put me into jeans what seemed like a reversed mirror of my notions. That's my friends, is how my life turned denim - don't think this'll be a phase. Featuring Neuw Denim, DELTA, Zara Worldwide, Levis, Wildpair and ASOS; Outfit details below.

There are many aspects in life are like a child. You train it to become a more-than good person when future comes. You and the child together or individually go through the roughs and lows, from nothing in order to reach that something. Much like upgrading from a semi-automatic DSLR to a new and proper Canon 5D DSLR - Overstatement? Maybe. Hardly. Much like everything else in life, you confess your lack of knowledge and give in to training yourself to be a better person, photographer, pianist or what ever it is you want to be, but often like a parent caring for a child, sometimes you as the parent of your knowledge just doesn’t get your knowledge no matter how hard you try. Does your baby need food? Milk? Sleep?. Does your DSLR need more Aperture? ISO? Shutter speed? Everything in life takes months or years to master, do take your time to understand your area of expertise in training – or you’re one of those people that understands it with a snap of a finger, I know a few people like that – definitely not me, that’s for sure. Tangling attitude and romance in Deadly Ponies, Taylor Boutique, Harman Grubisa and Kathryn Wilson, Bernadette. 4 years younger than me and no sign of baby or the need for modelling training in her. In total 4 beautiful homely labels, exquisite model 4 years younger than me and a team made up of 4 girls – we were up to (no) good.

Before you jump in click the 'Continue Reading' button, make sure you've seen the full editorial here. This isn't really my first editorial, but my past ones haven't been the best either. There was just one thing holding me back from doing better shoots, my small ass Nikon camera that's probably old enough to be my grandfather. Can you imagine how much a new camera can bring a new sense of creative freedom for me? For this shoot, I really wanted to embrace the stunning pieces New Zealand designers have to offer. Of course, I love international and other New Zealand labels just as much, but there's only so many garments a person can carry especially without a car. I also wanted to embrace fabric movement. Nowadays all you see in publications are just a model standing, staring into the camera like it's an ASOS thumbnail picture. I'm not saying that's wrong, many look absolutely stunning, but when ever I see an editorial or photograph with movement, I'm drawn in immediately. These are the basis of my inspirations, take a look at the behind-the-scenes process. Thank you to one of the best teams I've worked with - Model: Bernie @ Unique, H&M: Eve Sorenson, Assistant: Caitlin O'Toole, Special thanks: The Nathan Club (Britomart Group) and Showroom22. Wardrobe: Harman Grusiba, Taylor, Deadly Ponies and Kathryn Wilson.
