Australia BEAUTY: General

My Photo Shoot with The Photo Studio Australia ( Sydney )

Thursday, February 23, 2017Traveliztera

Since 2017 entered, I think I haven't had proper sleep due to so many activities in-between work. Don't get me wrong! I'm not complaining. I think this has been one of the most fulfilling and productive years ever, and I am truly grateful for everything that has been coming my way.

Anyway, on my birthday week, I received a message from Megan of The Photo Studio. She wanted to invite me to get involved with their campaign photo shoot that was all about embracing all women, recognising no barriers, and getting one's confidence out. I've heard about The Photo Studio, and let me tell you, creative fun and high quality are in the blood of their team and their work.

Megan stayed in touch with me for a couple of days to give me an introduction to their work, as well as help me prepare through a styling call. We had wonderful conversations about the creative world, and she was very approachable and helpful. Her bubbly personality definitely introduced me to what I was about to experience at The Photo Studio.

I was nervous. I mean, I haven't had a photo shoot since I was 17! It's as if this year has been calling me nonstop to come out of my "comfort shell" and getting out there again. To be honest, I have never explored the creative side of Sydney wherein I am directly involved in. Ever since I got here, I was all about study, work, and just settling down. It was only this year that I got to consistently hang out around the creative spots in Sydney to do what I want to do in terms of my dreams.

My photoshoot was booked this week. And boy, this week has been sleepless. I had three consecutive days of birthday celebrations again last weekend for me and Suz, then on Tuesday, I had hair and passport appointments and on that night was my voice class. I then had to wake up early the following day for the photoshoot because of my travel time, and on the photoshoot day, I had to go to my nightshift afterwards. 

Lovely! I'm surprised I had so much energy despite the sleep deficit. I guess when you're having fun at being productive, you just feel hyped up!

So yesterday, I did not know what to expect. 

I arrived at their beautifully designed studio in the vibrant suburb of Glebe, and was greeted by one of their lovely team members. I got served with their refreshing iced tea and some lollies, and I already started to feel comfortable.

I was at their lounge for their briefing, and I was looking around, and their displayed photos were breathtaking.

I was given an iPad to choose which hairstyle, makeup, and photoshoot styles I preferred. Then later on, their wonderful producer, Annaliese, came out to greet me. She made me feel welcome, and had a talk with me and asked me about ideas, and reassured me that Tash (Photographer) and Karina (Makeup Artist) are very creative, and will be able to help me in bringing out what I wanted out of this photoshoot. I'm already trusting this team!

She chatted with me for awhile to make me feel comfortable, and then escorted me into their studio, and I was greeted by Tash and Karina, who were both very friendly and lovely. They have organised my clothes according to preference, and all my accessories and shoes were all laid out as well.

I was glad that their preference was also my preference. I was going to wear a vintage dress and an outfit that had an edgier style. I loved the contrast.

I started with hair and makeup, while having behind-the-scenes shots, which were taken by one of their wonderful photographers (I'm sorry I didn't get your name, but thank you! =( ). Karina listened to what I wanted, while suggesting options as well. We were able to create a look that we both loved. She also helped me out in accessorising my looks. She made me look beautiful that day!

Tash has already prepared the set for my first shot, and made me feel more relaxed by helping me out with my poses. It was like bam-bam-bam. Shots here and there, then we moved on to the next set, and on to the next set. It was nonstop. She knew what she was doing, and I felt that she was able to direct me well to get the best shots. I have a feeling that I'm going to fall in love with all the photos.

After that, I had to go for my next look, and again, Karina helped me out. Then I was off to my next shoot. Time flied so fast! I was truly enjoying it.

Then it was all done. 


But this experience has been an amazing and memorable one. They made me feel welcome and I have nothing but positive words for their service. They were professional, and at the same time, they were fun to work with.

I can't wait to see the photos! I couldn't take photos inside the studio to show you how it looked like, but they were taking behind-the-scenes shots, so I'll post them as well once I get them.

Thank you to The Photo Studio for the great timing in inviting me, especially to a great campaign that I believe in and living out this year. It was one of those great surprises after my birthday, and as I said, I think this year is really all about getting out of my comfort zone. So thank you for being part of this journey! This has been one of my most creative years yet. =)

I will share the photos soon!

Meanwhile, check out how happy their studio can get! (I thought that was Orlando Bloom haha!)
