Treasury Casino photoshoot

Right now these are very big posters on the casino walls! I haven’t been there to see them yet, but my husband took these photos. I must get over there, hope they don’t change them any time soon. The 2014 Treasury Casino brand photo shoot was by Cartel Film Production, and I was represented by Agency 888,

In a happy coincidence, my aunty Shirley from Singapore stayed with me recently, and Mike took us to Boundary Markets in the West End. It was my first time going there. Shinji Ogata (who was with me in that photoshoot) has a studio there where he does live portraits. Shinji did a portrait of my cousin Melanie, and here we all are!

This is his website: Acoustic Drawings: The Shinji Ogata Gallery. Here’s his 20 minute watercolour of me, which he did while we were working. He had a small bag of paints and paper with him, to paint something in between shoots. That’s an artist!

Shinji calls his work Acoustic Drawings because it’s a one-take work, like improvisation. To top it all, his favourite jazz musician is Bill Evans! So’s mine!

Here’s his take on Bill. Click on it to go to the original work.

This isn’t a post about piano lessons or even playing piano, but it’s still great to end it with something connected to an awesome jazz musician 🙂
