The Celebrity Next Door Project | Portraits | Brisbane | 8th March 2015
Over the past couple of months, I have been working on a little project with the team at All for Mary called the Celebrity Next Door Project. I am a little behind in blogging their photos, so I thought I would do a catch up post with the last three month’s worth of shoots in one post.
The first Celebrity Next Door is the Twins – Michael & Phillip. They are two very talented, very gifted and incredibly nice guys who know what they want out of life and work hard to achieve their goals. They are both classical musicians, one is training to be a doctor and the other is training to be a teacher. They were both incredibly comfortable in front of the camera giving me lots of great expressions and I was even treated to some great classical music (as they actually played for me). The concept of the shoot was to shoot the boys in an urban type environment to showcase the classical element of the boys in a grungy type environment. I really love the result and it was so much fun capturing each of these boys personalities.
The second Celebrity Next Door that I will be featuring in this blog post is the lovely Annette. Annette is a scientist who is full of so much character. We wanted to keep her shoot incredibly simple by incorporating her fun t-shirts, her funky rock chick hair against the black board full of science stuff. It was awesome. She was so much fun to photograph and gave me so many crazy fun expressions… and even channelled her inner mad scientist.
The third Celebrity Next Door that I will be featuring in this blog post is the gorgeous Lizzie. Lizzie is a gorgeous girl both inside and out. We did her shoot in two parts – the first as a blonde in the morning, and the second in the afternoon with pastel pink hair. Lizzie is a chef, a girl that doesn’t drink, smoke or do drugs which is typical in her industry, has a gorgeous tattoo down the side of her body. We wanted to keep the shoot really simple to showcase her playful nature, her quite side and her gorgeous tattoo. How gorgeous is her pink hair!!
So that is that latest in the Celebrity Next Door Project. If you want to read all of the blog posts, Beth has written explaining the reasons behind why each of these guys where chosen, head over to the All for Mary website and have a read.
