As was reported in the press here in Melbourne recently, the talented recording star Sam Sparro jetted into town for a photo shoot with Super Blogger Jamie Wdziekonski of 'Oh Jamie' and myself, Sam in fact made a special trip to Melbourne only to do this shoot! Jamie approached me to style this amazingly talented pop star for some upcoming publicity shots and I couldn't wait to work on the concept after discussing with Sam and Jamie the new direction of Sam's music. Of course I can't give too much away as Sam's new album will be out next year but these images give you a sneak peek into a fantastic day working with a talented pop star and talented blogger.
Sam and Jamie checking out some of our shots half way through the day. You might spy a '90's' style to Sam's outfits!
'Oh Jamie what a great shot you take!'
I love the above look on Sam, really a different direction stylistically for him.

It was such a pleasure to style/work with Sam Sparro and even better to get to spend some time with him on his brief visit to Melbourne, I know that like many others we are all looking forward to his next album. I'd also like to say that it was such a coup for Jamie to get to shoot such a big star and commend Sam on his belief in up and coming talent like Jamie!
