"Today would of made perfect reality TV," Rory joked, as he, Photographer Christopher James and I, lay sprawled out like exhausted lumps on my shaggy rug last Wednesday evening. When I think about Rory's little statement, the more I think that he has a point, because here are just some of the bizarre circumstances that took place on our shoot that day;
- Standing in front of a court house building in designer Jamie Lee's latex (mind you it was Sydney's coldest day so far, so you could imagine how frozen I was!)
-Rory trying to get the Jamie Lee's latex pieces on me (this is a whole other story! Lets just say he has seen everything now!)
-Hand-made hair extension shoulder pads? Check.
-All of us almost fainting for a shot in the sauna
- At 3pm we wanted a few more clothing options, so I frantically rang the lovely Candice @ Mother & Father PR to lend out more
-Rory racing to collect the pieces, than having to return them by 5pm
-Photographer Christopher James almost drinking off milk, whoopsie!
-Rory laying across the elevator door, so that we could get a shot inside
-Christopher James having a slight head spin from standing on my balcony, due to the height
-Being carried around in Latex
-Trying hard to keep my balance and not topple off, as I lay on a tower of crates
-Security chasing us through the building, as they were wondering what in the world it was we were doing
- Trying to walk in Rory's hand-made feather shoes without ruining the feathers
-Recapping our day over a nice bite of Japanese
Overall, the day may have been exhausting, but we got some great shots. Originally we had planned to venture to a back alley or a construction site around the CBD, however with the 'gail force' winds and icy chill in full force, we made use of my apartment building, which I feel worked for the best anyway. I have included some 'sneak peek' shots, I will be sure to post the final editorial spread, along with all the pieces that were featured, when completed.
