AFTER CAPTURING THE ESSENCE OF BROOME SO
BEAUTIFULLY IN OUR SUMMER 2016 SHOOT, WE JUMPED AT THE OPPORTUNITY TO WORK WITH SIMON UPTON AGAIN.
Capturing the fragile beauty of the Whitsundays has always been on our wish list and who better to take on such an important task, then home-grown photographer Simon Upton.
In the last 10 years Simon has established himself as one of the top fashion and portrait photographers, with his work featuring in leading magazines and advertising campaigns globally.
Owing to his location expertise, Simon travels regularly, but is never too far from the water – he used to be a successful swimmer and loves a surf.
He continues to evolve both in his use of light and his natural ability to make his subjects feel a certain sense of ease, the intimacy he creates is what we love most about his work and approach.
LEAVE ONLY FOOTPRINTS, TAKE NOTHING
Simon and his crew brought an infectiously positive attitude that set the tone for the entire shoot.
Finding fun but professionalism at every location and in every shot – from jumping off the bow of the boat to spying mantra rays from the stern, the entire crew relished in the experience together and formed a strong connection to these magical waters and to one another.
