For Melbourne Spring Fashion week. 2014, I was cast as an archer in the Victoriana Pleasure Garden shoot for the National Trust Exhibition – photographed by Gerard O’Connor, and styled by Marc Wasiak.
I was so excited to do the shoot and spent many hours in makeup and having my hair done.
The dress was hot, there was a lot of standing around and I got blisters on my feet. I thought it would be a wonderful photo for my portfolio. And then, they needed two archers to turn their back for the photo. None of us volunteered. So I was picked randomly. Needless to say, I am the archer on the left with my back turned. It was a disappointing day. It was also the day of the Sydney Lindt Seige. So there was a weird vibe generally. You win some. You lose some – I guess. The shoot took place at Rippon Lea Estate.
