the agency….


Alissandra, Belle and Ruby. Thanks to photographer Thom Kerr I was introduced to The Agency, a Bondi modelling agency I have yet to stumble across. Not as many girls on their books as other Australian agencies, but they seem to be very hand picked and ready for more independent magazines.


Isabella, Stephanie and Holly. Hard to choose girls to feature as all the shots are less commercial and all interesting gazes.

monster and midget…..


Every now and then I get an email with the polite suggestion of “Can you please feature me on your blog?” and generally I disregard them in the thought of this has probably been sent to many and I can’t be bothered… and then sometimes someone opens you to a whole new world. I got an email from photographer  Thom Kerr and immediately remembered his name from a Tallulah Morton shoot he had done. Through his email I was introduced to a new magazine Monster and Midget and a new up and coming model Eva.


Photographer  Thom Kerr, Styling: James Dykes, Beauty: Amelia Axton, Model: Eva @ THE AGENCY, Photography assistant: Sian Scott-Clash, Production: Jovita Lee for Issue 2 of Monster and Midget, only 150 copies printed.

bless me father…….


French girls have a good start in life. Their parents give them names that sound and look alive….. In French actress Josephine’s case.. her parents are Baron and Baronne de La Baume! Usually blonde and by the side of Mark Ronson I love her new red locks, and as always Australian make-up artist Clare has created a beautiful face of make up.


Coming from one of my favorite blogs…cameron smiths… is this shoot and caption….”An actress, some clothes and lots of crosses.. Mags Crow and Clare Read and Josephine de La Baume.”

mostly daytime……


Resident Russh photographer Benny Horne shoots the newbie Australian models in layback surroundings as well as shining the light on the supers in NYC. His blog is worth a RSS as his style is ever changing and always a surprise. Just a little taste in every entry and not much of a description….  nicole “vito’s crash” denim thing… I’m pretty sure this is a pin-up version of  Western Australian Nicole Trunfio.

2… lyn&tony


When I first moved back from London not much had changed. A few new brands had started and some old favorites were becoming more established. Young designers in London are there to shock and stand out and often get backing money from the get go. Some Australian designers are as amazing but lack budget and vision when it comes to advertising and lookbooks.


2 by Lyn & Tony are actually a label I look forward to seeing their pics. Of course as photographers they have the eye for models and sharp images but they also take chances with their individually hand made jewels. Beautiful and original and the pieces define an era so heirloom worthy hand down to your grand children pieces.
