It's hot and steamy here at Sepang in Malaysia – where we've just finished a manic weekend of unpredictable weather and excitable fans. Taking it more casual in jeans and a singlet so as not to offend the faith of some of the fans and sponsors, it was all I could handle to not melt on the grid haha. We had a great turn out from our longtime team sponsors GIVI, and all our autograph signings were completely full!
Unfortunately my laptop was stolen from the hotel, making the launch of my new website delayed in a big way, but you can still read all the archive blogs that I have been making along the way throughout this year.
A big thanks to my gorgeous boy on my birthday for organising such a sweet surprise for me!!
Bright and early on a long weekend Monday morning, whilst everyone else is sleeping off their extra night of partying, I am up and ready to shoot!
Today my agent Olivia Parkes of Modelique Management in Sydney, has booked me to shoot the cover of technology magazine T3 Australia. We have some bright and colourful new iPod Nano Touch's to shoot with some gorgeous swimwear from Seafolly. With the combination of dreamy makeup from Tricia Albulario , stunning styling from Elaine Laurel and incredible photography from one of the absolute pro's in the business Anthony Adamson (he shoots for everything from Vogue, Cleo, Cosmo and That's Life), we have so many beautiful shots it's going to take at least an hour to choose a winner.
Here's a couple that we may have narrowed it down to, as well as a Behind the Scenes pic with Tricia's gorgeous daughter and her friend :)

The lovely people at the White Party have given me a free VIP ticket to attend this October Long Weekend's special event at the Ivy, Sydney. With the theme being 3000 AD, there was plenty of inspiration everywhere with amazing costumes, and custom creations. The fashion show was very very cool, I definitely want a pair of the space boots – and the dancers put on a hot show!
I made it an early one as I have another shoot tomorrow, but I'm sure all the space-age kids partied well into the night.
Thanks very much to the people at the White Party – Dan Mor, Paolo Violante and Michelle Latoza. Here's a few pics from my good friend Norman Ko, you can check out more at www.thewhiteparty.com.au
Ok, so it wasn't quite in the desert, but the sand dunes in Kurnell....however, it most definitely did storm – just in time for the wet look in fact.
I have worked with William Siauw from Pixel Photographics before, and I love his style of photography. His models always look flawless, the colours pop, and his work is always beautiful art.
When he contacted me a few weeks before I was due to come back, I knew I had to work with him again. The weather was less than desirable, but William, his trusty assistant Ed, and our wonderful makeup artist Stella Agionakis all worked really hard (we had to do the make up in the car) to create some beautiful shots.
Here's some Behind the Scenes pics and a sneak preview of one of the shots, I should have more photos in the next few weeks:
