I was recently super inspired by the photographer Peter Coulson if you haven't heard of him then you should def look him he is an incredible fashion and editorial photographer based in Melbourne who photographs Women and predominantly in only black and white. I've signed up to his inspire course (its blowing my mind) for those that ask me how I stay inspired (its hard not be inspired) there are so many amazing photographers out there on You-tube/ Instagram/ Facebook that openly share information about their creative process and how they work with models and how they communicate. I really LOVE how Peter works with Women so I planned this part of this session with some of the things he talks about so often in mind...... The longer and more often I work with a model the more I can get out of them. Me and Cassie have done alot of pretty stuff but some of these are def more than just pretty

she holds her own in a strong but still feminine way. I adore this series! My first ever full black and white blog... this series was 1 of 3 that we created last night on my new fave chunk of coast (Fraser's beach) which is past Fort-rose... AMAZING as ALL-WAYS CASSIE thanks for your energy and good vibes!!!!!!

There are so many WAYS to STAY and to be INSPIRED.

That could be another blog post in itself!
