For the interiors shots in Monty's Shack at Coaster's Retreat, I was beyond delighted to be able to use a suite of divine products to create that tropicana-luxe feel that makes the perfect lifestyle setting for my summer hats.
With thanks to the beautiful and talented people behind Homeworks Design (for the retro tropical cushions), Goss Lingerie (for the white lace robe), Olsen Design (for the interior screen using "The Great Shalimar" fabric) and Bethany Linz (designer of the Great Shalimar fabric) for their kindness in lending me their beautiful products for my photo shoot.
That's all! With a smile,
Here's my behind-the-scenes pictorial of the photo shoots for the Carolyn Unwin High Summer 2015 collection of summer hats.
Just to make things far more complex than they probably needed to be, I ended up doing two photo shoots in two of my favourite locations - Cremorne Point, Sydney and Coaster's Retreat off Palm Beach in Sydney.
The Cremorne Point shoot allowed me to capture all the wonderful angles and reflective surfaces of the new ferry pontoon with the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House often popping up in the background. And as you can tell from the grin on my face, it was fun!
Goofing around in the new Diablo Henley.
Loving that iconic Harbour Bridge & Diablo Henley.
Now I see what I look like from behind. With a design that didn't make the final cut.
And the Coaster's Retreat shoot, revisited the site of last years shoot, capturing the unique Australian beauty, light and colour of Australia's Pittwater.
Critical infrastructure in the romantic light of sunset.
With thanks to Brittney Bloomer, Simon Kenny, Maurice Parker and Peter Girdis for making it all possible.
