Charles and Keith Street Style Campaign 2016

CHARLES & KEITH SUMMER 2016 draws on a tale of one’s journey to self discovery, a delivery of self expressionism. Pushing forth the idea of self identity, a series of visual narratives portraying the dialogues of one’s inner thoughts.

Supporting their official Summer campaign, I was really humbled when CHARLES & KEITH, an international brand approached me to create a street style campaign which depicts the story of a city slick girl living a carefree life accessorised in CHARLES & KEITH.

I must admit, it was mammoth task shooting 11 different looks in one day, running around like a wild cat in an orange vest (safety comes first ok!), jumping up on bins to take a bird’s eye view whilst making sure every little detail of the product was in clear view and the shot list nailed. However, I had the best time of my life, and I couldn’t have done it without the patience, professionalism and commitment of my dream team.

Ok so here it is! Hope you enjoy the street style campaign now debuting digitally and in store across Asia – Singapore, Korea, Japan, China and Thailand.

Jennifer + Pieter Wedding Fashion Editorial

The last two months have been non-stop shooting action at the Spring Racing Carnival, Fashion Campaign assignments with Collins 234, Melbourne Central, Ballettonet, WSGN and St Kilda Football Club so we apologise for being a little slack on blogging our work . If you are wondering what we have been up to, the best place to catch all the action is actually our Instagram @finessencephoto or my Snap Chat channel @heykarenwoo.

This Saturday we are gearing up for a beautiful and rustic wedding with Jenny and Pieter. I am particularly excited about Jenny’s wedding because I can’t wait to see her wedding dress – it’s going to be epic. She’s one of the couture dress designers behind Jane Hill, so you can actually imagine how it’s look like. The last time we spoke, and it was only 2 weeks ago that her dress was in pieces and yet to be stitched up !

A few months ago, Jenny came to me with an idea that she wanted her engagement images to look more fashion, more editorial and posed to be displayed at the Willows Reception table. With the concept in mind, we created these editorial black and white images which I’m so thrilled to share with you all!

Enjoy xxx
