james took some photos for twenty-seven names and here they are

Posted on August 29, 2016

All Images/James K Lowe for twenty-seven names. James took some photos for twenty-seven names for their NZFW exhibition and I really love them so I have decided to post them. They are some of James’ best work, in my opinion. Very beautiful. They were up at the Allpress Gallery on Drake Street for a couple of days but they are gone now (cool story). They were sitting alongside a blurb about the whole thing which I also really love and have reproduced here: “Last year we dreamed big, inviting Emma Watson, Beyoncé and Helen Clark to our dinner party. We still haven’t heard back from them yet, maybe their RSVPs got lost in  the post, maybe their calendars were a bit tight…? This year, we…

Betty shoots New Faces: Wednesday

Posted on August 31, 2015

Wednesday wearing Penny Sage. All Photos/Betty Scott Molloy. I don’t know if any of you know Betty Scott Molloy, but she is a sweet, talented photographer based in Auckland who is from today onwards, contributing to this little blog of mine. ‘Betty Shoots New Faces’ is going to be a regular segment (I hope) on and it’s pretty self-explanatory – Betty shoots new face models she likes, and I post the results. It’s a pretty sweet deal for me, especially considering I have become increasingly time and motivation poor when it comes to creating content for this blog, so I’m pretty grateful and lucky to have Betty on board! First up, Betty shoots Wednesday from 62 Models. Results below.

Arcade’s new stuff is dropping this week

Posted on May 19, 2014

All Photos/James K Lowe for Arcade. 

You all know my brother is James. You also might know that he is a photographer, and a pretty fantastic photographer at that. (I know my opinion is biased.) Recently he went on a trip to America and as part of the trip, he visited the Grand Canyon. While he was there he shot a bunch of photos for everyone’s favourite street and skate label, Arcade. It’s their latest drop of hats and tees which are going into store later this week, on tourists and people he came across on his travels. They’re pretty great. My favourite is the shot of the above kid. See the rest below.

I scream, you scream, Seon screams for ice-cream in this Harper’s Bazaar China editorial.

Posted on June 7, 2013

A few weeks ago I came across an image from this shoot for Harper’s Bazaar China starring our very own Seon Hwang (Clyne) and Australia’s Rachel Rutt. Last week, Nicola sent me a link to the whole editorial (below). You may have seen it already, but if not, prepare to be impressed. Seon kills it. The whole thing is a bit cartoon crazy which is not usually what I’d like, and the clothes aren’t really my cup of tea, but as a whole the bright colours, orange hair and giant novelty sized ice-cream props are really doing it for me. Check out the last shot below of Rachel running alongside the ice-cream truck – it’s a winner.

Derek Henderson and Kelly Thompson’s ‘Darkness of Noon’ releases in New Zealand tomorrow.

Posted on May 29, 2013

Hey, so, aside from my brother, my favourite New Zealand (yet overseas based) photographer is Derek Henderson. The first time I ever met him was this one time over a year ago when Isaac had organised to have breakfast with him in Sydney and I being the ultimate J.I, tagged along. I remember he was so nice and he had his little girl with him and we ate at Kawa café and was wearing those awesome clear acetate Moscots. Anyway, he was telling us about this book he was doing, I can’t remember why we were talking about it but he mentioned nudes of New Zealand (yet overseas based) model Zippora Seven and drawings by New Zealand (yet overseas based) illustrator Kelly Thompson. Basically that book…

These are my favourite shots from behind the scenes at the latest Glassons campaign shoot.

Posted on May 14, 2013

I got shown these shots a couple of days ago. They’re behind the scenes photos from the latest Glassons campaign shoot, ‘Escape’ by Tim Barber. I don’t know if you’ve seen any of the results of the shoot, but of all the photos they’ve produced since they took on Adam Bryce as Creative Director (and really started cranking the benefits of using uber-stylist Zara Mirkin), these behind the scenes ones from Winter 2013 are my favourite. My like for them is largely due to the fact that they’ve used two of who I would consider the three most well known short antipodean models (the third being New Zealand’s Zippora Seven) – Anja Konstantinova and Teresa Oman. The location ain’t too bad either – these…
