The little building at the end of the pier #1 by 

Today’s model shoot, the 2nd of 3 shoots I am doing this week took me into the vicinity of St Kilda. St Kilda is one of those places that houses a wide spectrum of individuals and activities. It is quite artistic in places. It is totally dodgy in other places. The beach is nice and frequented by many foreign visitors but unfortunately, you do have to mind your step as needles do find their way onto the beach as I discovered today. All negativity aside, it is nice to have a beach so close to the CBD of a major city. And at 30 degrees today, it was a very pleasant place for me to be even though conditions were not ideal for photography. Jess, a first time model, did a lovely job of posing in the correct fashion for the shoot.

Shot in St Kilda, Melbourne.
Photographed with Nikon D700 and 50mm 1.4 or 24-70mm 2.8 lenses

Many of my modeling portfolios are in my new 2010 Calendar. Check it out by following this link:

My interest in photography began back in high-school when I used my mother’s Olympus OM-1 to shoot sports events. I learnt to understand film, light meters and other technical issues. I bought my first SLR, a Nikon F70, when I finished uni and became more focussed on shooting portraiture, landscape and photojournalism. Since then I have not looked back opening my own business in 2009 specialising in portrait photography.

    Good one Mark – Im getting married here in March

    PS: Im going to copy this one day

  • Thanks Stephen. It will be a lovely wedding location. And with a bit of luck, the sun will dim down a little by March. Speaking from experience, I can imagine how tough it will have been for you to choose a wedding photographer. I went to 11 different people before settling on one…. not that it did me much good considering my recent newfound independence.

    great shot,,, love the framing, well done Mark

  • Thanks midzing. Heaps of post-production to get rid of the restaurant objects like stuff stuck on windows and a big blackboard out the front but worth it I think.

    Simple but very effective , nice shot .

  • Thanks Scott! It would have been more simple if I didn’t have to photoshop all the unwanted nasties out of the shot afterwards!

    It was a very difficult desicion Mark. But the funny thing is that I dont have too high expectations for the wedding images. Probably because I know I do my best work behind the camera (not in front)!

  • hahaaa…. yeah. I actually prefer the candid style (or photojournalism style) wedding photography. Unposed and natural. Mainly because, unless you are used to standing in front of the camera, it will never look natural! Well it may by the end of a 3 hour shoot but you won’t have 3 hours to shoot!
