This was one of those on-a-whim shoot ideas that somehow made it past my imagine and into reality. Knowing that a friend's partner owned a legit original Star Wars stormtrooper costume, I had an idea to shoot them against the backdrop of Vivid Sydney. I had no idea how difficult an assignment I had gotten myself into. From crowd control to the freezing late May weather to dusting off my on-location off-camera flash, I have to be 100% honest. I was completely overwhelmed and stressed out during those 2-hours that we spent in the city. And shortly after the first location (Opera House steps), I gave up on the idea of mixing Vivid Sydney lights with my friends. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Looking back, I would have planned things better. As a creative, I know where I've left myself down. But when I asked Mandy at the end of the shoot how she felt, her response took me by surprise (in a good way). So at the end of the day, I'm pretty stoked that we did this. And for those of you who scrolled it all the way down here, I've included a behind-the-scenes video that I had a mate produce for me.
