Second day of Judging for the New Zealand Nationals and we are in Rotorua. Orange County Photog Jen Conover and I did the GIRLS ROAD TRIP YEHAH down the central north island to Rotorua. More commonly known to the locals as ROTO-VEGAS. I judged all day and had my folio judged. I am the proud recipient of 4 GOLDS and one of them was a distinction. I am extremely proud of this folio and I won’t lie. I gave everything I had to create this folio. I took 2 weeks off my business, story boarded and created every image and then illustrated each image culminating in over 80 hours of work.
In Australia I won 3 Golds and 1 silver distinction and I knew one of my images was not up to the standard of the other 3 so I changed it before I re entered the folio in NZ. SO I thought I would share it with you. AND the other images you have already seen in earlier posts. This is ‘FAIRYTALE’ by me. Its represents a duality (growing up a gemini) my fascination with twins and the wonderful make believe world I created growing up. The twins (2 of the most beautiful girls you’ve ever seen) in this image are darling friends of mine whom I simply adore who loved doing the whole shoot, getting hair and makeup and playing dress up. What fun we had. Many thanks to the twins and Legend Simona Janek & Leda for Hair and Makeup.
