Having fallen in love with the huge bright and white space that is Studio D, our friends at Trade Secret have been regular visitors to our Waterloo studios lately, shooting motion and stills for their Style Secrets campaign shot by photographer James Mullins. Check out the great results on their website featuring fashion bloggers Elle Ferguson and Tash Sefton from Theyallhateus blog.
Those of you who follow us on the gram may have noticed a new face appearing of late. Grant’s new puppy, Josephine, has been busy breaking hearts and untying shoelaces all over the studio. Some of you are obviously feeding her since she’s almost doubled in size since she’s arrived. Stop that. If you’re looking for more Josephine cuteness, follow @mondogrant or @mondodigital Instagram feeds.
The studios have been as busy as ever so far in 2015, which has seen plenty of old and new faces gracing our spaces and taggin’ us on the interweb. Here’s a small selection of the Internet-famous friends we’ve shared our sets and cycloramas with over the past few months. Come back soon, new pals! And if you don’t already follow us, @mondodogital is where we’re at on the ‘gram.
Mecca Cosmetica recently paid us a visit to create some beauty shots for their latest range of products. Photographer Grant Matthews spent a day with the Mecca team to highlight some of their new goodies – such as this ‘Beauty Sleep’ eye brightener – just the thing for those days when you don’t quite catch enough ZZZs.
If you’ve ever worked with the French, or crossed paths with him in our Mondo halls you’ll know that he’s a master of many skills. A casual commander on set, his direction and lighting know-how sees him produce consistently great work for a swag of clients. He’s also a handy guitarist and songwriter, having recently released his first EP with his band Jon Dory. As if this wasn’t enough, Frenchy’s personal work is imbued with his unique flavour. He’s a master of moments with a true talent for capturing people and places. Subsequently, we’re tipping his first solo exhibition – “Twenties” – to be something you won’t want to miss. Opening night is Thursday April 23 at Mild Manners Gallery on Crown Street in Surry Hills. There will be a book and framed works for sale on the night.
