Landscape: Frosty Morning.

We have had two really super frosty mornings this month, one after the other. 

The nights are cold and the mornings are colder. 

I like the contrast in colour tones between the frost in the shade, and the frost melting in the sun. 

This will be the last month of Winter for Nick and I as we are off to Vietnam for the month of August! 

I am looking forward to the warm! 


Landscape: Night of D'Light

The "Night of D'Light" was part of a school holiday kids programme in the Christchurch Botanical gardens. 

It was something that could be enjoyed by everyone - Nick and I were having a great time! 

There were a few incidents of Nick swinging the tripod into me and then I dropped my glove - but we went back and found it!! 

It was really cool to see everything lit up like this! 


Thrift Store Challenge!

Hattie and I have done this sort of thing before...

We go to a second hand clothing store... (we went to two this time round)

And then we come up with an idea based on whats there, except this time I had it stuck in my mind that it need to be a jumpsuit and in the second store we found one! 

Then we came home, after a small frozen yoghurt break, and tore a hole in my brand new backdrop...

And got some hilarious photos! 

And the glitter aftermath...

Action Sports (Kinda): Yoga with Gabriella.

You might remember Gabriella from a shoot we did a couple of weeks ago... 

While we were on that shoot Gabriella was telling us all about how she really wanted to do a Yoga shoot - which worked perfectly for me as I have been wanting to do one for a while! 

She was so great, it being winter and all! 

Luckily we got a great warm and sunny day. 

Lifestyle Shoot: Gabriella from Portfolio Models

We had a super last minute, well last minute for me, shoot with Gabriella on Saturday. 

It was mostly overcast, with a small bit of sun every now and then - perfect conditions in my opinion!

Gabriella was so much fun to work with and didn't even complain when a wave of seawater ended up in her gumboots! 

Family Shoot - with a difference.

This family is quirky and interesting. They pride themselves on being different and it's amazing! 

When I suggested trying something a bit different, for me, they were more than happy to be a part of it. 

There were three core ideas that revolved around things the family did normally. 

1. Being outside (this idea was a bit more vague but I wanted an outside photo)

2. Watching Movies.

3. Baking - Sarah makes the most beautiful cakes!

And this is what we got: 

There's nothing quite like animals and children to improvise and have a generally great time! 

(I couldn't decide between these two!) 

This was the last shoot of the day and man was it messy! Everyone really got into it, and there was no way I could have just picked one! 

After this the shoot dissolved into a food fight...

This is the aftermath! And I did help clean up! ;)

Beauty Shoot - Sophie

I haven't really done any beauty studio stuff since I left study. 

I had an idea and a lot of paint powder left over from a shoot we did last year, so I put two and two together, found an amazing makeup artist Grace Pearce (https://www.facebook.com/gracepearcebeauty) and set-up our garage studio. 

Sophie is from Portfolio Models and had an incredible unique and beautiful look. 

I wanted to get something so different from what we did last time and with the help of Grace and Sophie (and of course Nick ) we got something pretty awesome! 

Enjoy! 


Action Sports: Rock Climbing

After two shoots with professional models, we decided that we needed a different pace for the weekend.

Francis and Gert were more than happy to introduce us to "the cave" behind Barnett Park in Christchurch. 

Rock Climbing photos is not something we have never done in the past so it was very interesting to see first hand and photograph. 

Nick winched himself up on a rope so he could be at the same level as the climbers and we got some cool shots because of it. I have also included an iPhone photo at the bottom of Nick and the set-up!

Francis & Nick!

Francis & Nick!

PORTRAIT SHOOT: Jordan from Portfolio Models.

This shoot initially had a whole different feel to it - sunset in the background, lots of golden light... But true to form, when you want the weather to be sunny, it's really not. 

We had a great model, Jordan, who is from Portfolio Models here in Christchurch. He never complained about the rain, or the fact that we made him stand in wet grass!  

Adventures: Queenstown/Wanaka

Nick and I have been talking about making a trip to Queenstown for the longest time! We went for a family holiday about four years ago, and since i've started biking he wanted to take me there to ride the trails. 

And Furg Burger of course! (last time we had Furg Burger a seagull took all of the chicken out of Nick's burger haha!)

We stayed in a campsite that was surrounded on all sides by mountains and turned our car into a tent. 

We checked out the huge jumps on Dream Track, Rode 7 Mile and Rude Rock, walked through the botanic gardens, went to Arrowtown, spent the day wandering around in Wanaka, went on a 3 hour hike in terrible shoes and photographed stars from Coronet Peak. 

I apologise for the amount of photos - We had a really tough time trying to get the numbers down! 

We were updating our instagram (www.instagram.com/endeavourphoto) while we were away, so there are iPhone photos there. There is also a great photo that shows you why one of the tracks we rode is called "Rude Rock" haha!

It was a great trip away - we are already thinking of where we should go next!
