Backstage at The Picture This Workshop 2014
I am so happy to share with you some behind the scenes pics from the 2nd Edition of Picture This Portrait/Fashion Workshop in Sydney this January.
Twelve great photographers participated, 9 fabulous ‘real’ people models, 2 make-up artists, a stylist, Athalee the super workshop organiser and her assistants, the fab Loc Boyle (super Parisian photographer) and moi. We shared four great days of photography, fun, delicious food and laughter in 3 different locations, snapping, chatting and practising.
There were big hair and dresses..
And big smiles..
There was inspiration..
And hair and make-up..
And a little ‘Saint Tropez’ inspiration..
Did I mention the laughter?
And sailor salutes..
And Hippy chicks..
Even freezing still manages to look good..
More beautiful Hippy chicks..
Day 1.. Theory
Waiting for the photographers and the workshop to start..
And loads of photos..
I walked away from this workshop with a smile a mile wide, a heart filled with happiness and re-energised from the positive energy of great people doing what they love.
So my heart felt thanks to everyone who participated, each and everyone of you made these four days unforgettable and to everyone who worked on the workshop.. 21 gun salute to all of you!!

I discovered you when I purchased French Essence years ago and fell in love with your photography, and your adventurous and positive attitude on achieving your goals. I have three of your books and will have to purchase your latest. I am Italian, a lover of the arts, and Paris, read your blog and appreciate your advice on life and of course photography. I post on Pinterest where I follow you so please take a look at me there if you wish. Thank you and hope to speak with you soon.
P.S The photos at the Moulin Rouge are so very spectacular.
