L U X M U N D I .

So one of the new features on my website is the new summer lookbook for Gary Pepper Vintage, which we we shot at Hunter Valley Gardens last month. I'm really pleased with the end results and i think Luke did a wonderful job of laying them all out so beautifully. Most of you wouldn't know this but one of his many talents is being art director of Leboogie, one of the top body boarding magazines in Australia, in which he designs and creates an entire magazine each month, so luckily this came quite naturally to him.

I called this look book "Lux Mundi" which means "light of the world" in Latin. Not only was it perfect for the overall feel i was going for but it was also a quote Luke had engraved on the inside of a ring he gave me three years ago for my birthday, which is something extremely special to me. I think it symbolizes how well we work together on a personal and creative level, and so it suited this perfectly :)

There is also a short 'behind the scenes' video Chad Waldron put together of our day in the valley. Perth based band San Sisco was kind enough to let us use their song called Golden Revolver. I can't really believe they've only just finished high school and are already lined up to play festivals like Big Day Out and Lane Way! Just goes to show age is really just a number. I'd really LOVE if you could all head over to this website here and vote for their music on Triple J Unearthed, a program built to help promote and discover up and coming music artists.

Well i hope you all like the new lookbook and had a wonderful weekend! Hopefully i'll have time to blog more this week!
