Behind the scenes at Tin City

I think this is when we just arrived on location_MG_4050
Our location for the day_MG_4051
Travis starts on the hair and Victoria on the nailso fmodel du jour Simone Kerr_MG_4053
Michael Azzollini gets his rack of clothes organized_MG_4054 _MG_4059 always room for some more tulle_MG_4075
Me, patiently waiting while all involved to their bit to create the first image ( read : can't wait to start shooting )_MG_4076 _MG_4082
I go over the gear with Ben from PIX
Getting Michael to stand in , so I can start thinking about the composition/lighting of the first shot_MG_4093
While inside Robbie's house Victoria is making sure Simone won't get burnt before she comes out for the 1st shot_MG_4107 _MG_4120 Here we go, first shot, let the fun begin_MG_4122 _MG_4126 _MG_4127
Love this shot, we arein the middle of 40 km stretch of sand dunes, nothing but sand for miles, but yet, here we are in this little oasis inside tin city. Simona waits inside while I'm out in the burning sun to set up the next shot_MG_4162
Next shot_MG_4163
Then we huddle inside to look at the shots on back of camera ( too bright in the sun to really be able to see it )_MG_4164
looks good_MG_4165 ( melted ) chocolate sugar hit_MG_4169
And then master operator Ben from PIX , who has set himself up in the location van, starts processing the RAW files_MG_4178
And Azzo gets the Kerr in the next outfit_MG_4180
Oh yeah, I'm smiling alright, the sun is shining and I have a great team, so I know I will get great shots_MG_4184
I must be setting up the lights again outside , so Simone patiently waits out of the harsh sun light_MG_4190
If there is one thing I don't like in my shot when shooting in sand/dunes or even snow, is footsteps, so Ben steps in and starts sweeping away the footsteps, awesome_MG_4192
As I take a shot in the background of Simone walking to the location of the next shot_MG_4199
checking the composition of the next shot_MG_4206
Looking back at these shots now as I post these, I just want to go there again and do another shoot_MG_4207
Just as all was going smooth and well, the rangers come round to give me a bit of grilling. Shot here so many times before and there was never an issue with rangers before, but it turns out that the original owners of the land, the Worimi people, have handed control of the land over to the National Parks and Wildlife, and are now "policing" the dunes, and this only happend just recently, so I was not aware of any permits that were needed, and they are giving me a hard time. That smile I had a few shots back is starting to fade._MG_4222
But the show must go on_MG_4231
Next shot_MG_4236
Time for a well deserved lunch_MG_4237
Come back in a few hours for some more shots_MG_4248 After lunch different rangers come now, doing their job _MG_4252 While I deal with that, Simone has a little lie down, heat is a bit much for her ( check out the RSL carpet , noice one Robbie :-)_MG_4253 Hehehe, sorry Michael, just had to include this shot of you running from the dog_MG_4255 Setting up for another shot, light will start to getter as the sun drops in the west_MG_4278 Heels and sand dunes, difficult mix_MG_4282 But Simone will give it a go for the photo_MG_4288 Yes, shameless plug for PIX, as they are providing me with an awesome service_MG_4294 You see, I was concerned about getting all the gear and people in here in one car, as it has to be a 4WD car, and I did not have a budget to rent more 4WD, but turns out their location van is 4WD also, perfect_MG_4298 The sun's getting to Michael , he'sacting funny ( just kidding, he's always funny :-)_MG_4301 Nice shot Jacs_MG_4302 Robbie is back from work, straight into a coldie, and checking out what we've done with his place, not everyday you come home from work, and find a fashion shoot in your backyard_MG_4306 _MG_4308 that light is getting nice !_MG_4311 Travis, fixing the haor and taking another booking, I think Travis was the only one who was getting phone reception_MG_4318 I love this location_MG_4322 Oh yummy, nice shot Jacs, love a good sun flare_MG_4331 Can you imagine living here ? Pretty special, and just 50meters from the ocean ( fresh fish )_MG_4338 The locals watch the "circus"_MG_4341 should frame this one_MG_4343 I reckon I got some colour today_MG_4347 one more shot to go _MG_4350 I'm telling Michael how much I'm going to love this shot with the light_MG_4353 you should send me some of your shots Travis_MG_4359 I reckon Robbie could get used to this_MG_4363 You go girl_MG_4368 Just love this light, so ready to shoot in this light again_MG_4376 _MG_4382 My companion for the day_MG_4385 _MG_4386 I think that's a wrap140120091272 All pics by the lovely Jacqui Turner ( call me for bookings :-)

Thank goodness there's the problem with the vegie patch :)

Yeah I did, surf out the front, self reliant on wind and solar energy, but stumbling block is the vegie patch, where would I put that, and how to stop sand covering my lettuce

good ones jac; i¡m sure sonny started thinking of living there, i can imagine him doing so!!

VERY nice pictures :)

I'll you in a "sec" Josephine


Sonny, do you know who the clothes are by? specifically that gorgeous taupe strapless number?
