Its hard to explain why I love Sydney so much, a city in a country I wasn't born in, and my daughter's namesake. Maybe it was watching Crocodile Dundee as a kid or the similarities to the US, even the shadier aspects of racism to its darker skinned citizens. It's been the #1 place on my list of travel destinations for quite awhile and I've been lucky enough to go every year since 2010.
During my third visit last year, I had the pleasure of working with 4 models in the midst of vacationing and to quote a fellow photographer "Sydney was good to you." The first of those four was with Rosamina Bold, an Asian model living in Sydney who I found on Instagram. After looking at her portfolio, I was excited to work with her as I continue to push myself to be a better photographer.
The following images are not a complete set of what we created, but it was one of the strongest shoots I've done.
