November Snapshot (1) with GT Studios Photography – What happened to October!

Welcome to the GT Studios Monthly Snapshot. A chance to keep all of our wonderful GT Studios People – clients, models, collaborators, and friends up to date with the latest news and happenings.

 

I started my last snapshot by saying that Spring had finally arrived – well I have decided that we no longer have the perfect season but four seasons in a week and sometimes in a day – as I write this (on the 21st of November – only  9 days out from Summer) I am listening to pouring rain and howling winds. The great thing about that is no matter what the weather we don’t let it stop us giving you the best photo experience possible! I no longer look at the forecast but adapt to the conditions on the day – we often end up with the most amazing variety of photos – my new moto I think will be – go with the flow!

Face of October

Each month this year we have held a Face of the Month Competition but for October our focus was entirely given to our Fundraising effort for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation. Instead of having one person feature predominantly we followed the Frocktober themes. More on this later…..

Published

Our clients have been busy getting themselves seen in more places than our web page, Facebook and Instagram accounts! We have had our photos featured in Madison Fashion Magazine November Top 25, The Face Issue Volume 1 and Volume 2.

Congratulations to Zoe for making Top 25, congratulations to Alexia,  Mackenzie, Makenzie, Jemma and Zoe for featuring in the Face Issue.

Once again we were spotted by Faces Magazine, this time with Hannah’s photo being featured on the European (Swiss) Fashion Magazines Web site! We are very excited and grateful to Faces Magazine FacesBeauty for the feature. Congratulations Hannah! You can vote for Hannah here but hurry – only until November 23rd.

Hannah and Maddy

I would like to congratulate both of these amazing Ambassadors who have now signed with Finesse Model Agency. We are so proud of them and wish them well in their modelling career. We like to see our clients and ambassadors as part of the GT Studios Family so to have watched the confidence and skills of these girls grow so fast through this year has been such a treat. Well done girls! All of our Ambassadors have done so well this year. The Ambassador programme has been so much more then we hoped for!

Frocktober

By mid-September our Frocktober preparations were in full swing. One of the first people I asked to be involved was the lovely Emma Schulz from Elouise Designs. A first year Fashion Design Student at Adelaide Uni, I first discovered Emma on Instagram. Something about the way she designed, wrote about her work and studies peaked my interest and I knew she was the designer I wanted to highlight on our Fundraising journey. So, one evening, while waiting for Graham’s flight to land from an interstate business trip I decided it was now or never……. The rest is history as they say! Emma is a delightful young girl with a bright future – she has a young, fresh, range of clothes which was exactly what I was hoping for. She also hopes to do costume design and I hope we have an ongoing relationship between her amazing couture skills, Graham’s photography and my creativity we might be able to give you some amazing fantasy experiences next year!

We arranged a meeting to see Emma’s range and we did a photo shoot with Emma which was fantastic! Unfortunately we found out that Emma could not be at our Fundraiser Event as it was her sister’s wedding day!!!! I understood if Emma wanted to pull out but she continued to support us and the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation throughout October with posts on her Instagram too!

We also had an awesome Ambassador day where the girls (and their parents) put in an afternoon of planning at our place and then lots more of their own time to help prepare for the day.

With posters up, venues booked, it was down to the runway, music and dance prep – the girls loved choosing dresses to wear and as well as wearing the range from Elousie Designs we were very grateful for the generous donation from Rasheedah at Chicque Boutique who loaned us a huge range of clothes to wear on the day!

A dress fitting there and a dress rehearsal and we were just about ready. We opened the runway event to past clients and the general public and we were so happy to see some of our previous girls return for a fun day that raised money for such a great cause. I think we saw some models in the making too!!!

A massive thank you to Melissa Sandercock who gave a very educational talk about the signs and risks related to Ovarian Cancer – Melissa was able to dispel some common myths and reinforce some truths. Lots of positive feedback so if only one person seeks medical advice early enough then it was a worthwhile venture!

I have so many people to thank, the Gawler Uniting Church gave us the Hall Hire at an amazing rate – everyone who donated to the prizes, Hissey Electrical, Silhouette Hair and Beauty, Brereton Jewellers, Tanunda Hair and Beauty, Gawler Academy of Dance for their dancers, many private donations too – both in donating money, items and volunteering their time  – thank you thank you thank you! Our wonderful Ambassadors and their families gave so much time and money to this event – so grateful! Clients, friends and family – thank you!

We raised $1635 – a lot of hard work from a lot of people – thank you to everyone who donated on the day and on our My Cause page.  The person with the largest donation on our My Cause page won a free photo experience and they will be contacted shortly!!!

For a look at the Frocktober Fashions you can check out our Instagram feed – we continued the theme at our Runway event too. A serious cause but lots of fun!

If you would like more information about any of the information in today’s snapshot please contact me. We also have some gorgeous new products available for a limited time – Christmas printing deadlines are approaching rapidly so please don’t leave it to the last moment!

Keep an eye out for our next Snapshot in the next few days!!!!!

The Face of the Month - The Face of January

The Face of the Month Project with GT Studios Photography

February is already half way through and I still can’t believe January has finished! Where did the first month of 2018 go? I hope you have all settled in to work, school and a fresh routine for this year.

We have lots of exciting things to report for January and February. Too many to put in one snapshot really! We have been kept busy with client photo experiences as well as a few extra bits and pieces on the side. The 2017 winner of the “Girls Night In” Fund Raiser Gift Certificate had their photo session in January – such a delightful family to photograph – unfortunately we can’t share the family photos with you but we all had a great day!

The Winner of the Gift Certificate

The Winner!

Here are a few things we can share…….

  • Face of the Month

Each month we will be having a model call and if you are the person who best suits the call you will be given a free photo experience and feature on our Instagram, Facebook and Web page! You also get a digital copy of the images that we use. You will be able to use these images on your social media accounts. You don’t need to have modelling experience to be given a chance to participate – but if you are a model or hope to get in to modelling we will give you a feature in our newsletter too!

The Face of February

Our Face of February is no stranger to GT Studios. We would like to introduce you to Ellirah @ellirahmodels. We first met Ellirah last year, she came to our attention via Instagram. We knew then she had something special about her and looked forward to the upcoming photo experience. We were not disappointed!

After a full day of shooting, eight outfit changes, studio and outdoor locations, with over 800 images captured we were excited to look at what we had achieved. We were more than happy with the results!

The Face of the Month Project Ellirah Wormald – The Face of February.

Ellirah had her first experience in modelling at 9. Coming runner up in a runway competition. She then did a photo session for Summer Dayz accommodation @summerdayz on the Yorke Peninsula. Ellirah told us she has always loved clothes and her Mum is quite handy with a camera (check out her food photos here) so it comes as second nature for her to be in front of a camera – she always remembers being photographed.

February’s Face of the Month – Ellirah Wormald @ellirah_wormald

A recent scholarship for community spirit has seen Ellirah and her family relocate to Port Lincoln on the Eyre Peninsula.  The scholarship was for volunteering her time to children’s centres and on school projects that were of community benefit. 
Beautiful Ellirah Wormald, South Australian model.

Ellirah has done ballet for the past nine years, and this year has graduated to pointe shoes (every ballet dancers dream!), as well as 3 years of Jazz and she will be adding Contemporary to the list this year too! She has also studied 12 months of acting and musical theatre.  Ellirah loves to play basketball and enjoys reading. Despite all these activities she still finds time to be with her family. She has 2 brothers – one of them is her twin! (by the way – her brother Jake is also an upcoming model!) Ellirah loves to go fishing and camping and she and her family have traveled around Australia. She enjoys playing with her two dogs and walking along the beach.

When you ask Ellirah where she hopes modelling will take her she says she is keen to try it all but sensibly she knows you need to focus too and she would like her focus to be on being a print and runway model. Elle said she dreams of owning a Kopper and Zinc bathing suit and modelling a Paolo Sebastian gown – well that dream might be one step closer as we have heard since chatting to her that she and her brother Jake have now both been signed with Tanya Powell Model Agency  Powell Models. Congratulations Ellirah and Jake on another step forward in your modelling career – who knows – maybe we will get to photograph you wearing a Paolo Sebastian gown one day Ellirah!
  • International Publications

We are very excited to share with you that Graham is still on a roll with some beautiful images being published internationally – both in digital and print magazines. It all started last September with a digital publication in Fine EYE – Fine Art Magazine, this was then rapidly followed with print (and digital) publications in November in Fashion Kids Magazine, December with a double page spread in A La Mode Child-teen Magazine then a feature in Brand Model Magazine and quickly followed by two images featured in the January issue of Fashion Kids Magazine! A la Mode has now featured another image in their Winter Issue, Brand Model Magazine has again featured one of our images this year and we are eagerly awaiting some exciting news from a new Australian Magazine! More about that next newsletter!

Published in Fashion Kids, A La Mode Child-Teen Magazine and Brand Model Magazine

International Publications November 2017 to January 2018 – We have had six of our images printed in the pictured magazines!

  • Exhibition Update – extended until the end of February!

A huge thank you to everyone who went to see our Pure Essence Fine Art Photography Exhibition which was held in January at By Blackbird on King William Road. This was our first exhibition and we are so grateful to everyone who supported us in this venture. Thanks to the beautiful girls whose faces graced the walls of the café, the people who purchased our framed botanic wall art, and of course to Jin who approached us regarding the exhibition. Without his vision for local artists and small business we would not have had the opportunity. The great news is our wall art is still on display until the end of the month – some of the images have changed – so that gives you the perfect excuse to pop back in and have a fresh look – maybe purchase something for Saint Valentine’s Day, Easter or Mother’s Day – we love to solve your Gift List problems! While you are there remember to have a coffee and some mouth watering pastries or crepes!

Next Month:

  • Workshops – tell us what topics you want
  • Fine Art Projects
  • The Face of March
  • New Experiences on offer
  • Who is our Face of March
  • What’s New – latest products on offer
  • Recent Publications

Flowers and Lace - Spring Collection

Flowers And Lace

With a brief appearance of Spring I thought it was a great time to showcase some of the beautiful new items in the GT Studios wardrobe.  Today’s selection is from the “Flowers and Lace” collection. With neutral cream tones and a hint of Spring Shades as highlights, these dresses, hats and floral crowns are perfect for the Spring Photo Experience sessions that we still have available.

Flowers and Lace - Spring Collection

Flowers and Lace – Spring Collection. Neutral tones of cream with delicate embroidery in shades of Spring.

Both plain cream and floral dresses are available in an assortment of sizes. Some with fine embroidery or sequins others with tulle or organza. All with some sweet little feature to make them special.

Flowers and Lace - Spring Collection

Flowers and Lace – Spring Collection. Delightful Spring Floral Crowns that perfectly match the tulle covered dress.

We have several floral crowns, head bands, hats and other accessories available that are a perfect match for these dresses this season and I am really looking forward to seeing them in the upcoming Spring Photo Experiences.

Flowers and Lace - Spring Collection

Flowers and Lace – Spring Collection. Sequins and sparkles for that special occasion.

While the floral dresses and accessories are perfect for an outdoor photo experience the more formal dresses often lend themselves more to a studio session although the sequins do look amazing when they catch a bit of sunshine!

Flowers and Lace - Spring Collection

Flowers and Lace – Spring Collection. Sunflowers and Daisies make the perfect floral crown.

There is an option to have a floral crown hand crafted with love for your unique photo experience if you would prefer to have fresh flowers or you can choose from the ready made collection.

Hats and headbands are just as popular as floral crowns.

Sunday in the Park

Really want to share a few more images with you from the photo session with Mikayla and Marcus so here are the next four! The first image shows Mikayla wearing a fresh floral crown that I made especially for the shoot. The flowers were from the lovely people at Flowers Everywhere . The next image has Mikayla and Marcus hand in hand as they take a walk down the garden path. This is an ideal spot for a pre or post formal/graduation photo package experience.
