Nicolas has a natural charisma. I wasn’t sure he’d agree to be photographed considering he models selectively. I first met Nic at Turtle Cove resort in Cairns when he was bar staff. We swapped numbers and stayed good mates.
Nic and I agreed to do a studio shoot instead of heading to the beach which came up in our early conversations.
I wanted to create a series of shots with narrative that also reflect Nic’s chilled way of being.
We hired The Loft in Chippendale which features huge barn doors that flood the space in natural light.
I love warm greens and earth tones. This composition is atypical but I like it. I couldn’t work out why. I recently saw the series ‘Blue Nudes’ by Henri Matisse and it all came flooding back. Those childlike flowing shapes are reflected here.
