This is a very old shot from my past calendar series. Have titled it reflective not only for the mirror as I believe that the model's mood feels very reflective. Adds so much power to a model image when the model resists the temptation to pose for the camera. Often when we are photographed the process becomes intimidating as we place the result ahead of the process. However in shots like this where the model looks authentic the mood creates as much if not more impact than the looks.
It was so much fun shooting with Fasffy. The thing that surprised me the most was that she spoke my native language, Dutch! There's practically no people from the Netherlands in Australia. Can't wait to work with her again!

One more concept shot I did in January for a spec script that a small studio is hoping to get optioned into a film. This one was a bit of a challenge because I had to fit a lot of ideas into a single image, but hopefully it's successful. I can't say much other than 'invasion'. This one like the others employs matte painting techniques. More shots below from the project.
