age of intimacy campaign: my deadly sins, lust

part i / part ii / part iii / behind the scenes


 last month, i shot age of intimacy's my deadly sins campaign for their newest collection. it was one of the craziest campaigns i've ever been a part of, split up into two days of mishaps and lovely moments where everything seems to somehow fall into place and fit together perfectly.

day one was a half day shoot. we planned to meet up in the beautiful wilderness of the blue moutains during the day, but pouring down rain and a broken car later, we get there just before dusk. the sun settled down as hair and makeup was finished and by the time we started shooting in this amazing abandoned castle, it was dark. we fired up the car's highbeams to shoot through the night. it was the middle of winter in sydney and poor coralie was freezing but was an absolute trooper and fought through the cold.

we had polaroid cameras to shoot behind the scenes with, and dozens of balloons to play around with. we filmed and shot while the rain came down, but we didn't stop until all the outfits had a lovely photo to go along with it. the drive back home was bumpy and muddy, but i got home and collapsed into bed. my few days beforehand of colour-starved eyes were finally full of lovely photos and moving-pictures to inspire me for day two of shooting.

here is the first (of three) short film for lust:


none of this dream-like creativity would have been possible without our amazing team!

    1. car headlights! i wanted to do something different other than the usual speedlight on camera and direct harsh lighting, i needed something softer and more natural.. so i decided to use car headlights hehe :)

    1. thank you so much! i really do prefer the old polaroids (camera and film), but i'm glad they haven't disappeared off the face of the earth completely! at least there is something to be glad about :)

  12. Simply stunning, the feelings you evoke through your photographs coupled with your editing really capture the mood perfectly for lust. Intimate, dreamy, dark, moody and sensual - gorgeous! x

    I regulary check out your blog and follow you on facebook, but due to restictiona at work, your blog page (along with many others) doesnt load correctly, simply showing lots of little boxes and tiny red crosses. However after reading your facebook post last night, I wanted to make sure come hell or high water I worked out how to comment on your blog. Finally I saw a tiny clickable link saying '20 thoughts' and here I am. :)

    I just want to you to know that your words 'are' heard, your pictures truly inspire and your stories well, I just cant wait to try out car head light, just need a willing volunteer to stand under a blanket of stars! Thanks for all your help and inspiration, across the world...
