Josh Goot 2015 Resort Collection

It was such a pleasure to be shooting another editorial showcasing Josh Goot’s stunning designs.  I love the bright colour blocks in his 2015 Resort collection.  As my style is quite minimal and clean, I chose to keep my backgrounds simple, but with a nod to his colour splashes by matching the floor to each outfit we shot.  I wanted the colours to really pop so I used a spot as my key light knowing that the hard quality of the light would allow the colours to photograph vibrantly.  I aimed a soft box on the background to lighten the grey and allowed that light to spill onto our model, Vanessa, creating more depth and separation.

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).
