The times they are a-changin'

Hello friends!

Well - a lot has been happening. For starters... I finished college! I am now officially a graduate with a Diploma in Photoimaging. Hurrah! I had an amazing time last year at college, and I'm quite sad it's over... but onwards and upwards!

We had our graduate exhibition last week and I was so, so excited to be awarded the Fibonacci Award by my college, which is an award named after the 12th century mathematician, and stands for creative excellence and inspiration. Gah! I was so excited and am so thankful to have won an award.

In other news, I had a new blog! But don't worry, this blog is staying active as well. The new blog will act a little more like a website for me, i'm currently working on developing a proper website but while I do that I needed one to get by. So please head over and visit http://gracejohns.blogspot.com to see my final portfolio and head there for updates on all things photography.

As for my lovely blog that you are currently on, I will keep posting my photos here, but I think I'll start writing a bit more, being a bit more personal and hopefully if I have a bit of time I'll be able to do a few things especially for this blog, like some street style shots around Sydney, photography tips, etc etc! So be sure to stay tuned here!

I've been a bit behind when it comes to doing, editing and posting shoots, but I will hopefully get back into that soon. However, I'm going on a little holiday tomorrow! Just for a week. So you won't hear from me until then.

And until then, have a lovely week!

Bit of a break...

Sorry about the lack of posts friends, but I'm back! And I've finished college for good, crazy stuff!

I have quite a few shoots to post... here's just a little snippet of a shoot I did a few weeks ago!



How are you all?

If you can't sleep


If you can't sleep


I'll be there in your dreams



I'll be there in your dreams, if you can't sleep at all




 And in my dreams




And lay my head on your shoulder




Goodbye


shadow


You're far away


If you can't see my face


If the world is cold


But the sun shines the same


Shut your eyes


There'll be bluer skies


For your embrace to my heart

Thanks so much to The Russell Boutique Hotel for letting us use their rooms - what a beautiful hotel! 

I did this shoot on Monday and I think it's one of my favourite shoots yet! I hope you enjoy!

Shibori in Frankie Magazine!

Hello friends!

Well this week has been a very exciting one for me! Last month the amazing ladies at Shibori asked me to photograph an ad for them that this week appeared in... Frankie Magazine! Gahh! Anyone who knows me well will know that Frankie is my favourite magazine and it's one of my photography goals to shoot for them!
Well getting published in an ad in Frankie is a step closer to that dream, and I'm so excited!



Not to mention, I realised today that Frankie goes all around the world.. so if you get Frankie mag, open up to page 74 to check out my shots on the Shibori ad!!!

I'll be putting photos up from the Shibori shoot soon! I have about a million shoots to wade through hence why it's been so quiet on my blog at the moment, but note that I have been busy shooting, so there will be more posts soon!

Have a lovely day!

Your only doll













Here are some shots I took of Maddie last week in Orange. It's amazing, you forget about how beautiful the sun is when it's setting in the country! You don't even see it in Sydney, it's kind of ridiculous. 
The doll in the photos was made by Maddie for her HSC major work - I love it so much! Maddie is also a brilliant artist, you can find her work for sale... here!
