Hi and thanks for stopping by. My blog is an assortment of information relating to my photography and various commercial, advertising and glamour shoots that I do. I will be sharing information relating to my shoots including info about gear, lighting set ups, post processing and some BTS shots. I will also look into other equipment such as computer hardware, back up systems, software and processing techniques that all contribute to achieving the final images you see at Chris Smith Photography.

V8 Action Illustrated Shoot

Wednesday, January 04, 2012

Around June 2011 I was contacted to see whether I would be interested in shooting for a new start up Magazine, V8 Action Illustrated. Taken from the publishers (Michael 'Gil" Gilbert) exact words, V8 Action was produced for the V8 racing fraternity in

high gloss, is pictorially driven and doesn't just cater to the V8 Supercars but includes the Fujitsu Development series,

the V8 Utes and Touring Car MastersI was honoured that my photography style had been chosen to feature in the first ever, collectors edition of V8 Action Illustrated!

The shoot itself featured the gorgeous Georgia Kate Twyford and was quite challenging due to the lack of space in the workshop as well as difficult lighting conditions. All in all though I think we managed to get a great result. There is a time lapse video of the actual shoot which I am in the process of processing so when it is ready I will upload it.

P.S. More images can be found in the gallery!






I am looking for 2 models for 2 different shoots. Both of these shoots will be published in different magazines. These shoots are not for submission they will be published. Both magazines are sporting magazines. Magazines will be on sale later this year. 

Shoot 1 is for an established leading magazine focusing on the NRL. Shoot 2 is a new start up magazine based around motor sports, both of which are and will be distributed nationally. 

We are looking for 2 models, preferably blond haired and of reasonable height around 5' 8". We would like 1 model who has a very glamourish, sexy type appearance and 1 model who has a more natural girl next door kind of sexiness. As these shoots will be published nationally we are looking for models who have experience and who know how to pull the right pose. For the right models there is the potential for ongoing work. 

Hair, make up and styling will all be provided. Shoot date will be advised and will be confirmed with the chosen models. They are a little flexible however we would like 1 to be late next week preferably Thursday, and the other the following week. Both shoots will be in Sydney. 

Preference will be given to models who are looking for national exposure and prepared to do TFP however we will consider paid models. If you are interested in this shoot please contact me through my contact page asap and indicate if you are TFP or Paid only. Remember that both these shoots will be published nationally in Australia.
