makin’ magic in melbourne

Back in February, Jayden + I joined forces with an incredible team of creatives in Melbourne to make this shoot happen for the Travel Issue of Rue Magazine.  The day was nothing short of magical, and we’re excited to share the tear sheets from the magazine, and some extra shots that didn’t make the feature!

First up: the feature.  (The rest of the issue is beautiful, and can be found all online right here!)

Make sure to see that video mentioned in the above spread… it’s the Behind the Scenes goodness that Brian + Samm captured on Super 8!

“On the Esplanade” Rue in Melbourne from Shark Pig on Vimeo.


Next up: some MEET THE TEAM shots!

The next shot is just off the ol’ iPhone, but it’s when the fun started.  Brian had just flown in from Bali that morning and was caffeinating himself, while Lou prepped the lovely Candice.

Brian, Shark Pig, Wonder Worker …

Jeremy, Stylist, Production Stud

Stylist Lou + Stylist Jem with our massive rental truck, filled with surf boards + clothes.  Samm was the brave driver, and we are forever grateful to her!  (iPhone capture..)

The lovely Samm Blake.  Photographer, friend, rental truck driver, and Super 8 assistant to Brian.

And finally… some outtakes from the day!










This lovely gentleman (tourist?) happened to have his camera along, and felt no shame in walking right up to the models and taking his own shots!

And another visit from a stranger … hey, our models were gorgeous, and people just couldn’t stay away!!








So the shot on the left actually made it into Rue, but the one on the right just cracks me up!  Again, this was just an Aussie dude on the beach who had to join the fun and have a dance with Melody.. 😉




A big huge heartfelt THANK YOU and high five to everyone who made this day so successful and fun!  It was a big dream come true for Jayden + me to be a part of this…  Let’s do it again, eh?!  xo
