 M O D E L S Australia












My venture into the world of model photography started with a workshop on nudescapes put together by Tony Ryan, a well known model photographer in Melbourne. One of my good friends Ian, had received this a present from his wife, and asked if I wanted to attend as well. Being that I always like to learn new things, I decided to join him to see what it was all about.  The workshop turned out to be much more interesting than I expected. We learned about light and shadow as well as about body shapes and how to bring them out in the best light. As a final bonus, we were able to work with budding models that were looking to expand their portfolio. As part of their compensation for being our model, we were asked to share the images we took of them. Before they would get our images Tony would provide each of us with a 1:1 to discuss our photos and suggest improvements. It was a great place to learn how to pose models and to try different lighting techniques and and themes. Tony has a large number of interesting vintage props and a cool converted warehouse that allowed various themes such as fitness, lingerie , and sports photography. You will also see his red mustang and his Harley motorcycle in some of the photos. 
After this course Ian and I started setting up our own model shoots with themed locations. Ian was definitely the driving force behind this endeavor and I was acting as his assistant, I learned quite a few skills from him which I still apply to my wildlife and other photography.
