JANAKA | Australian Advertising Photographer


Forest and Field

I recently teamed up with a great group of girls to showcase two pieces by up and coming fashion designer Milano Imai. We journeyed into the forest to capture the first piece, a bridal gown made unconventionally of calico. Hiking up a valley hillside in order to get the model framed against the perfect blue sky, we captured lots of movement to showcase the flowing elements of the second dress. 

You might recognise our model Shannon Richardson (Katz Models) from Australia's Next Top Model back in 2013. Shannon's hair was done by Amy Louise Hair and makeup by Melanie Jane.

All photographs were shot with only natural light, using a silver reflector for the close up shots in the forest. Equipment used was a Nikon D800 with the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 and 70-200mm f/2.8 VR lenses.
