What is it about women and shoes?  I didn’t understand the whole hoopla when I was a kid, but somewhere between high school and my first real grown-up job, I became part of the movement/craze/irrational use of your pay cheque.

We’ve been buried under shoes galore here at the studio shooting the upcoming Guess Footwear promotions.  The greatest thing about Guess shoes is that they’re never afraid to be bold, edgy, or just plain fun.

Check out our different style sessions: Wild For Prints, Red Love, Bad*ss Basics, and Sparkle & Shine.  Let’s just say that I’m grateful to be the sample size of shoe!

We’ve been drooling over all the Ted Baker apparel in the studio this week.  Their gorgeous prints are that perfect combination of quirky yet sophisticated.  I’m particularly in love with that red bird print cardigan.  Tissue please!

Who doesn’t love the clean lines and every day elegance of Zara?  We’ve been working on lots of photo shoots lately for our recent Zara promos.  I’ve been known to be victim to a good deal on great clothes.  Sometimes the best part of my job is the sneak peak on our latest sales.  Check out our recent campaign below.  And happy shopping!

Diesel Photo Shoot

Diesel_Apparel

Just a quick entry this week from us folks at Studio 8.  We’ve been super busy these last few weeks with all the sales and promos coming up to Christmas.  Between all the photo shoots, retouching classes, and updating my portfolio, I’ve hardly had a chance to slow down!  Can’t wait for the holidays to finally arrive.

Here’s a taster of what we’ve been up to lately.  We’ve had the pleasure of recently welcoming back Jordan Coulter from his many months wowing the masses in London.  We paired him with a current favourite of ours, Kristina Agioski, for our latest Diesel photo shoot.

Below are some shots from the shoot.  Effortlessly cool, comfy yet stylish, Diesel apparel is always an easy sell.  The clothing speaks for itself.

About Connie

I was that geeky camera chick who spent her high school lunch breaks in the darkroom.  I still miss the smell of those stinky developer chemicals.  Sort of.

Born in Canada, I graduated with top honours in Applied Photography at Sheridan College before spending several years assisting and producing for  some of the best commercial shooters in Toronto.  After gathering a wealth of valuable skills and getting my first DSLR, I bought a plane ticket to Asia.

It was my first backpacking adventure, but I managed to survive nine months from Seoul to Singapore with only some shoddy mandarin and a lot of luck.  I had the time of my life. So I did it again.  Seven months of zig-zagging around India and Nepal taught me ingenuity with limited resources, clarity when surrounded in chaos, and how to eat with just my right hand.

Sydney became my new home in 2008, and I’ve been enjoying the sunny weather and great coffee ever since.

Today, I’m a fashion and product photographer extraordinaire.  Based at Studio 8 in the northern beaches of Sydney, I relish the challenge and precision of studio lighting.  My clients are drawn to my clean, stripped back approach to every project.  My simplistic yet direct style is refreshing and elegant in a market full of heavily Photoshopped images.

When I’m not in the studio you can find me hand folding dumplings or scaling walls at the rock climbing gym.  I’m also really good at winning board games (or my friends are just really good at losing).
