Late last year I took a trip over to New Zealand. While there I did a photo shoot for Mo Blishen. In actual fact it was more a case of firing off some shots in between takes for her music video. Filmed in a community center in Wellington we did not have much time to get the shots we wanted.
The brief was pretty lose. To get some shots that can be used for various, non specific, publicity purposes. I am a big fan of less is more and used shadows to focus attention on Mo. Some images worked better than others but overall, I am very happy with what we came away with. It is never easy taking photos when the people you are taking photos of are pre occupied with doing something else. In this case it worked out in my favor. It allowed me to just snap away with very little direction. The results are very natural and not 'staged'.
More music by Mo can be found on Reverb Nation. If you like what you hear you can purchase tracks there, where 50% will be donated to charity.
