Monochrome Portraits on the beach – Trying a new editing style

Model Aarthi at the beach in Sydney

Here is a new image from this monochrome portraits on the beach photoshoot with model Aarthi. The beach was Delwood beach in Manly, Sydney. With a mixture of swimwear and coverups we went for some moody vibes at the beach and the post processing for these has been mostly black and white.

For the processing of this image I wanted to try something different closer to high end retouching. Normally I’ll do some colour (or black and white) edits and then some adjustments across the image with basic skin editing.

Along with monochrome portraits on the beach with this photoshoot we also did some urban fashion around Manly Corso, so go check out the rest of the images here. There will also be some images featured soon shot on Ilford Delta 100 and Ilford Delta 400 film using either a Canon EOS 5 or an Olympus OM20/OMG.

I’m back in Sydney in March 2023 so if you are a model and would be interested in a shoot please get in touch. I’m also available in London or Norfolk the rest of the time so also send me a message if you would like to shoot there!

Monochrome Swimwear Photoshoot in Sydney

Monochrome bikini portraits with model Tamara

Here is a new shot from a monochrome swimwear photoshoot in Sydney with Model Tamara. The shoot locations were South Steyne Beach and Delwood beach for a contrast between the ocean and harbour beaches. Tamara brought along a couple of bikinis that we used for the shoot, along with a white coverup with we used on Delwood beach for some more portrait style shoots with a nice contrast between the white shirt, red bikini and the rocks and greenery of the background.

There is much more from this shoot here.

Tamara is a relatively new model but brought a vibe and mood to this monochrome swimwear photoshoot in Sydney I really like. I’ve gone for a monochrome look for a number of these shots as think it really adds something to the mood of the images.

I’m always looking to work with new models and offer TFP shoots where I provide 5 edited shots for each hour of the photoshoot. If you would be interested in shooting please get in touch.

A Photoshoot of two halves – Moody beach vibes and Urban Fashion

I’ve recently spent three weeks in Sydney on holiday, and was lucky enough to collaborate with a few models on photoshoots while there including this Beach and Urban Fashion Photoshoot..

Featuring two new shots from a photoshoot in Manly, Sydney with model Aarthi. We had a half day shoot and two very different vibes for the shoot.

One would be urban fashion on and around the Manly Corso – normally filled with locals and tourists visiting the shops and food locations while at the beach.

On seeing the outfit Aarthi had brought along, it was immediately clear these shots had to be monochrome – something working really well in this shot!

the other theme for this beach and urban fashion photoshoot was for moody beach vibes wearing a mixture of swimwear and various cover ups. This shot exactly what we were aiming for, with monochrome post processing and the Aarthi bringing all of the mood to the shot.

More from this shoot soon in a portfolio!

Just Jeans – Denim and Topless Photoshoot with model Azarah

Just Jeans – Denim and Topless Photoshoot with model Azarah

This new portfolio featured images from an early morning swimwear and topless photoshoot in Sydney with model Azarah.  The location for the photoshoot was Little Congwong Beach in La Perouse. The theme of the shoot was swimwear and topless with Azarah modelling a selection of bikinis and denim jeans with a moody casual vibe.

I prefer more natural portraits instead of obviously posed images, unless the photoshoot is very fashion based, and Azarah did a great job of both the swimwear shots and the topless freedom and carefree vibe at the beach I was going for.

Most of the shoot took place on the beach, but this shot was taken at the end of the shoot as we were heading back. The bush track was a little more sheltered than the beach and made for a great location for a very casual vibe from Azarah.

Azarah did a great job for this swimwear and topless photoshoot in Sydney and La Perouse and Little Congwong beach and such and amazing location.

I’m always looking for models, and if you would be interested in a shoot please get in touch!

Sydney Art Nude Beach Photoshoot with model Elen Moore

A semi topless shot during a Sydney Art Nude Beach Photoshoot with model Elen Moore

I’ve added a new shot to this portfolio of a photoshoot in La Perouse, Sydney with model Elen Moore. A cold morning on Little Congwong Beach and Elen was modelling from summer fashion to art nude.

Despite the cold morning Elen was great for this shoot, bringing a range of modern and classical poses to the shoot. Little Congwong beach is a great location in Sydney and during the day is an unofficial nudist beach, which makes shooting art nudes much easier.

This shoot was with natural light, as due to the cold asking Elen to wait around while I adjusted light settings was not viable. But the morning Sydney light, even though grey and a little overcast was great.

Shot on a Canon 5d mkiv camera with a Sigma 85mm 1.4 art lens. This is one of my favourite choices of equipment for portraits. There is just something great about the 85mm focal length!
