Christian Blanchard interview with Photo Mojo + more Nikon classes

Sydney-based photographer Christian Blanchard was recently interviewed by Mitch and Willis at the PhotoMojo show. Willis met Christian while attending one of his Editorial Fashion Photography classes and invited him on the show. Christian chats about his discovering his love of photography, getting into more film work and being pedantic about shoot locations; the resulting chat they describe as a "highlight in the history of the show".

Listen online or download the podcast for free by clicking here. Note: Strong language and adult themes for the about the first minute. Christian's interview comes in at the 33 minute 25 second mark.

Christian Blanchard will soon be travelling around the country again with his Editorial Fashion Photography classes for Nikon School. Intended for everyone from first-time fashion photographers to the more experienced snappers, you'll find Christian sharing his secrets (that have led to him working with Mimco, Nobody Denim and FashionTREND magazine among others) in Sydney on this Saturday 2nd July, Melbourne on Saturday 9th July and Brisbane on Saturday 27th August.

Fashion Supports Tracky Dack Day

It's been a big month for Philip Boon, lending his styling expertise to not one but two charity fashion events. Here's the second; Fashion supports Tracky Dack Day, a runway show bringing attention to TLC for Kids who provide cheer and valuable optimism to very ill children.

Stylist Philip Boon with the event's host Project Runway's Sarah Gale.

It takes an experienced styling to make the humble "tracky dack" look this good. More evidence below:

Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my Close Up

The latest work from Melbourne-based photographer Jesper Nielsen is naturally beautiful. Can you guess what (perfectly innocent thing) they are advertising?

Mission 65 Round Up

When he's not styling fashion editorials, glossy advertising campaigns or celebrities for the red carpet, Philip Boon rolls up his (probably Gucci) sleeves for a cause.

The stylist's latest charitable project has been hosting and styling the Mission 65 fashion show in conjunction with the Whitehouse Institute of Design students and local designers. The event was a celebration and fundraiser for the Prahran Mission who have been working for the local community for 65 years.

Who said the fashion biz was all style, no substance?

The fashion show took the wartime mantra of "make do and mend" - utilising pieces from Prahran Mission's op-shops - to re-create looks inspired by the 1940's, Christian Dior's 'New Look' with a little Carmen Miranda (doesn't everybody need a little Carmen in their lives?).
