For several years model Anoush Anou and I had been trying to organize a shoot. She lives in the U.S. and either she was in the U.S. and I was in Australia or she was visiting Australia and I was visiting family in the U.S.

On this particular occasion, the stars aligned and we were able to get together. We swapped ideas over the internet for several months so that on the day we had a mood board of ideas.

The first shots were taken on Mt Ettalong on the Central Coast. It provided some beautiful locations and panoramas of the area and we created some beautiful shots.

We then headed to Studio 35 in Woy Woy for some more shots. The first shot was my interpretation of a photograph from the famous photographer Tono Stano. I hope I did the original shot justice.

Anoush was such an expressive model and it was great that we finally got to work together.
