A day at Adelaide Botanic Garden
Our first professional fashion photography session was held in Adelaide Botanic Gardens, during two beautiful afternoons. That weekend ended up to be a great two days with fantastic results despite a few obstacles. A few days before the photo-shoot my photographer and I inspected the garden to find specific locations to take the photos, we were happy and surprised that there was hardly anyone in the garden that day. We also got additional reassurance when the garden caretakers told us the garden was going to be less busy during November.
However, during the day of the photo-shoot, it was another story! When we arrived at the location, we found out that most of the places that we’d chosen for our photo-shoot was already taken and were packed with people, yes! It seemed that everyone in Adelaide decided to go to the gardens that weekend! So, we decided to look for quieter areas and found a place that almost felt like a secluded forest.
Although this was quite unexpected, our team adjusted to sudden changes very quickly. Our team initially started with Dino (photographer) and I, and our plan was to take as many good photos as efficiently as possible! Soon we were joined by friends and family members who were keen to help us with this event, and we realised there was indeed a job for everyone.
With their help and everyone’s hard work, the photo-shoots turned out to be such an amazing experience. This experience opened my eye to how much detail and effort goes behind a professional photo-shoot. I believe one of the things that I said to my team was that a photo-shoot director is a real job! I’m very grateful I was responsible for this position and I can add this experience to the rest of my abilities. Once again, I would like to thank Dino, our photographer, David and Roe photographer assistants, our three beautiful models Neely, Amy and Chelsea, Mitra for helping and Jerick our hair and makeup artist.
Looking forward to doing this again very soon!
