_RAP9582MAC_ARIA_Sonnyphotosso this was one of the reason to get back to Sydney pronto, to get behind the scenes shots of James Molloy doing his thing on the presenters for the ARIA ( australian music industry awards night ) that, and to see Jacqui & the kids again _RAP9584MAC_ARIA_Sonnyphotosso after travelling for 28 hours, racing home to Avalon to see the kids before they go to school, have some breakfast, back in the car and back to the city to go up to the plush rooms at the Darling hotel near the casino, one could have a worse job, even though I'm tired, feeling pretty lucky to have such a fun job, and meet and work with great fun people _RAP9588MAC_ARIA_SonnyphotosSo James and Jesinta Campbell ( did not know, but Jesinta turns out to be the Australian Finalist for Miss Universe competition, and she's a trooper ) _RAP9600MAC_ARIA_Sonnyphotos

Love girls with a good natural smile HMEL0555MAC_ARIA_SonnyphotosMi Mate Richard Cavanagh doing hair on Maud Garrett ( another tropper I had not met before ) HMEL0558MAC_ARIA_Sonnyphotosmore troopers :-) Nicole and Diane HMEL0661MAC_ARIA_SonnyphotosSam in make up HMEL0739MAC_ARIA_SonnyphotosLanie in make up HMEL0772MAC_ARIA_SonnyphotosMaud.

HMEL0904MAC_ARIA_Sonnyphotosso every one is glammed up, dressed up and turning up in limousines at the awards, whereas Lanie, as she is pure class, turned up at the red carpet in a white 70's Kingswood, now that's class money can't buy, love it HMEL0938MAC_ARIA_SonnyphotosSam really has a great smile HMEL0942MAC_ARIA_Sonnyphotosshe's ready HMEL9038MAC_ARIA_SonnyphotosJesinta doing her thing on the red carpet and looking great HMEL9067MAC_ARIA_Sonnyphotosand she has James close by for touch ups HMEL9071MAC_ARIA_SonnyphotosMaud also looking great HMEL9110MAC_ARIA_SonnyphotosSo that was fun, thanks M.A.C. for getting me involved, enjoyed it and met some great people, but now time for me to head back home and get some real sleep in a real bed :-)

Jean Charles De Castelbajac + Rossignol Winter Shoot Behind the Scenes

_RAP9514SonnyphotosBenoit, our charming french male model for the day _RAP9515SonnyphotosMr Fenton, aka mr lightswitch _RAP9523SonnyphotosEveryone in the studio.
So this is the reason for jumping on a plane end November from Sydney to Europe and then checking into a hotel in Paris for the night. I was asked by the Castelbajac team to come and shoot his new campaign, was pretty stoked to be asked so off I went and here we are :-) _RAP9525SonnyphotosAlways alot more people involved in shoots like this as opposed to shooting an editorial _RAP9528Sonnyphotosall hooked up to ringflash and shooting direct onto laptop _RAP9534Sonnyphotos
Somewhere in there is our Russian model Katya _RAP9537Sonnyphotosmurmur murmur :-) _RAP9544SonnyphotosLucky for me, Katya had the energy I needed, and she lasted all day no problem :-) IMG_5062SonnyphotosKabouter Plop :-) IMG_5066Sonnyphotos2checking out the shots with Alexandra IMG_5067Sonnyphotos
IMG_5069Sonnyphotos2me & Jean Charles, hamming it up for the camera IMG_5072Sonnyphotos2that time of day when I like to go a little silly ( love the new jacket by the way ) _RAP9545SonnyphotosSetting up a shot with Jean Charles De Castelbajac in the picture as well, and ooops, I did not realize I was just tugging him into position like that ( bloody uncouth aussies :-) _RAP9546SonnyphotosI think this is when we telling Marc to hurry up and take the photo :-) IMG_5074Sonnyphotos2

IMG_5080Sonnyphotos2caught my flash, blown out IMG_5083Sonnyphotos2I really like that jacket on me IMG_5084Sonnyphotos2love this shot, funny IMG_5086Sonnyphotos2when I'm going, did you get the shot Marc ? _RAP9548Sonnyphotoslooks like everyone is pretty happy with the way its going _RAP9552Sonnyphotosstill prefer shooting without the laptop, mainly as I'm just used to lloking at the back of the camera, feels like it slwos things down this way, pros and cons _RAP9560Sonnyphotosnot sure if you can tell, but I'm jumping with the models as I shoot. So that's probably why Jean Charles has given me the nickname Super Sonic Sonny :-)
