“Futuristic Fiftys” - an inspirational collage for this weekend’s vintage inspired photoshoot.

As an aspiring photographer nothing fuels my vision more then an influential figure that I can strongly relate to. Around the age of 14 I discovered Lara Jade’s work on Deviant art, over the years I have witnessed her personal style grow and have become enthralled by her attitude to the photography industry.
I strongly admired her technique and her ability to take theatrical photographs on top of doing hair/makeup & retouching.
Lara Jade is now living and working in New York city, the industrial central for creative minds, and too this day has been a tremendous inspiration not only to my photography style but also my creative career, at the age of 22 Lara has achieved commercial success in not only her photographic artwork, but in mentoring aspiring photographers with her international photography workshops, one of which for the first time is taking place in Australia in association with the Inspire me 2012 workshops (wish I could say that I was attending).
Lara has recently teamed up with another photographer - Joey L to create an educational photography workshop dvd “Photographer Shoot Off” which compares each photographers techniques throughout a series photographic challenges.
After a long time of waiting i’ve finally been able to get my hands on a copy, and much to my delight I was happily surprised. This dvd workshop is not your usual ”101 guide to photography”. The workshop documents each photographer in action during a real editorial photoshoot, you get to experience first hand how Lara Jade directs her models, works with a creative team, overcomes challenges and how she post-processes her work using Lightroom & Adobe Photoshop. All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed the 4 hours of footage and fingers crosses for a sequel.
