Meet Jo :)
Jo is, perhaps, the person I’ve photographed most over the years.
Early in any photographers career, there is a time when you have learned just enough to start having a great many creative ideas… But often no one to explore them with.
Around this time for me, I was lucky enough to know Calum, of Dirt Bike Co, and Jo. They both had a lot of energy, and were always up for a challenge. This is why you’d them popping up over and over as you scrolled through my images.
I hadn’t yet learned how to pose and direct models, but Jo knew just what to do. As a dancer she is really self-aware, so working with her was effortless.
This particular shot came from an afternoon wandering around (the now re-developed) Shed 10 area on Auckland City’s waterfront.
You can find Jo on Instagram as @jo_nz_bubs, and in various blog/portfolio posts here on my website.
