Beauty at any age

Who doesn't love a good meatloaf quote right! I woke up this morning, and I had to get ready for school, something that can be quite difficult on the best of days.  School has been somewhat of a mixed blessing for me, I love going, I love creating things, and yet at the same time, time itself is a limited commodity and I fear I am rushing towards my doom without having accomplished my dreams yet.

Beauty at any age project update

We are now 6 months into this project and I had the most recent day was last month some time. The beauty at any age has kind of changed quite a bit in the last 4-6 months, but one thing that hasn't changed is how beautiful all the women who have come in have been!

Last week I wrote a blog post that was shared 107 times at this time plus another 20 direct on facebook!  It was seem by 6000 people on Facebook, and my website saw more traffic than it has seen in its entire lifetime! I had 66 emails in 3 days and they are still coming in, I guess I struck a chord with many. many people when I said women are beautiful at every age.

Personal Project number 1: Beauty at any age | Casting Call Dunedin

It's time to kick off 2016 with a bang and talk about something that I feel quite strongly about.  Beautiful images of beautiful women. Here's the thing, I want to celebrate every woman, I am often asked what my target market is and honestly the majority of the women who hire me are between the ages of 18-25 but i don't consider them to be my target market. Don't get me wrong I dont mind at all, but the whole idea behind my business was every woman is beautiful and I really feel that my target market is quite simply: female, yup if youre female its you! Sometimes I get messages asking if I will photograph someone because "I know you don't do older people but..." rubbish I don't shoot older people. I love shooting older people, I love shooting younger people and age really isn't a factor for me! I would be lying if i didn't say that it actually hurts when I see these messages in my inbox. So, I am doing something about it!
