Releasing my inner Rockstar

I mentioned on facebook a few weeks ago now that I had an impromptu fashion photoshoot just for myself. I wanted some snazzy new images for the blog, my media kit and head shots for writing jobs on other publications. As a photographer myself it pained me to fork over money for something I could essentially do myself but a tripod and remote trigger does nothing to evoke emotion and frivolity in an image the way a real person behind the lens can. I trundled into the city with a suitcase full of clothes and overflowing with jewellery. The photography assistant didn’t know where to put it all! I joked with the photographer that at least I didn’t come in jeans and a white shirt, he knew from then on I was up for some fun. I’d never seen a grown man stroke a metallic skirt (on the hanger lol) and see eyes widen with enthusiasm before. It’s pretty “out there” as far as my wardrobe goes but it was so. much. fun!

My Outfit: SKIRT: Damn You Alexis ~ JACKET/CAMI/SHOES/RING: City Chic TIGHTS: We Love Colors ~ NECKLACE: Peeptoe Shoes ~ BRACELET: Lovisa ~ HAIR: Stevie English Hair

This is my favourite photo. I love how long my legs look, how my foot curls around and even my smile. As you can imagine I have a lot of photos of myself but this one confirms that a result like this couldn’t have been achieved without seeking help from another photographer. The glimmer of my sequin jacket, the gloss of my heels, the sheen from my skirt and the bling from my necklace makes me very happy. I was tempted to go dark with black tights but I’m glad I didn’t… how awesome do the magenta tights look with my kick arse hairdo by Stevie English Hair! Sure, the outfit might not be to everyone’s taste and even I was unsure of it but in the end I’m super proud.

Did you know?

I offer portrait packages for commercial use? Well, I do! Are you in need of photographs for your media kit? Maybe you’d like a new profile photo or avatar for all your social networking platforms? Does the photo you use now really reflect who you are or who you want people to see?

Oh you just knew there would be a giveaway!

I’m really excited about this!!! Can you tell??? It’s been one year since I launched my photography business and it’s been a lot of fun and a heck of a lot of learning.

    Ooh Ooh Capture me please!
    I am always the one behind the camera, never infront, especially after my makeover! Any time I am infront it’s with Mr black holding the camera, and well…he doesn’t seem to understand what a “full body shot” means i.e. he does one that maybe has part of my chest in it. Also he uses the flash when we’re outside in the sun making me look transluscent. FAIL.

      Matt and Joey – Wow, Ash, this stuff is gorgeous! Do you take the potohs in B&W or convert them later? Do you play with the levels in your photo software or leave them exactly as you took them? This reminds me so much of the photography classes I took in high school, but your work is AMAZINGly better than anything I ever did. Keep up the good work!

    I would LOVE some new photos! Our wedding was in June, but I was disappointed when our photographer didn’t take ANY bridal shots/close up shots of me or hubs. I love some of the pics we got, but they’re certainly not what I was hoping for.

    You DO look like a rockstar!
