Summer 13 Photo Shoot

Posted on
It's been a productive last few months here in the Surya workshop! As some of you will have seen, our website has just had a total make-over, and what a learning curve that was ... from our first photo shoot to learning HTML, it was all hands on deck! 
We LOVED our photo shoot day - such a great vibe from everyone present and the weather was as brilliant as it gets. Our very talented model and photographer team inspired us, and we are so grateful that they both really gave it their all to help us present Surya in our best light.

Early morning make-up

Having never been present at a photo shoot, I wasn't sure what to expect from everyone involved and was amazingly humbled by how professional both the model and photographer were (and of course both assistants - Yo and Lee - and the styler - me - )!

We found quite an amazing location that we're pretty sure no one in the Jervis Bay and Basin area will recognise! Literally just a couple of minutes from Vincentia (our local 'big' town), it took us driving around with 'different eyes' for 2 weeks to spot it. Our secret spot reminded me a little bit of the Northern Territory ... as the day was so hot, I really felt like I was in both the tropical North and the never ending 'tundra' plains of the NT at the same time.

And so here we are now, 3 weeks later with the amazing results of the day all layed out for you on our brand new website. We can definitely recommend Shopify for anyone looking to design your own website - relatively easy, affordable and with all the features you need. Saying that though, after 3 years of learning with our previous website, I did need to update some old skills and learn some new ones ... including a tiny little bit of HTML coding. Which had me worrying but really wasn't as hard as I had thought. It's a bit like learning (the beginnings) of a different language - once you understand the bones you can guess-timate from there (and sometimes it actually works!).

Until next time,
Mel Xx
