Photographers are always thinking about shoot ideas and this day I was after a wooden ladder so I dropped into MJ Retro and Vintage Hardware’s Cafe and see if they had a wooden ladder in stock. I started talking to Julie and Marty about certain shoots ideas that I do and they mentioned that Cally works at the cafe and is just beautiful. So I came back and met with Cally and we all agreed to do the shoot at the cafe. It was to be a Vogue inspired shoot on a Op Shop budget. With a bag of outfits from the Op shop and a skirt from 3 Style Clothing ,Alarna and I put together the look and the style of the shoot. Alarna Taylor Hairstylist and Makeup Artist.
It was fun to be out of the studio on location and watching Cally transform from a shy black t-shirt and jeans teenager to a confident young woman in front of the camera. An absolute gem to work with. And looking forward to working with again in studio.
Marty and Julie have some amazing vintage wares in the store and what I hear every time I visit the store their customers ” do you remember these” the shop certainly has a charm and puts a smile on the customers faces. The shop is located on the Bruce Hwy in Benaraby QLD . Stop in and say hi.
