ZoeFest 2009 Australia Mission Beach

First days, first impressions.

After arriving in Cairns on Saturday morning, I did a bit of sighting seeing around town until I met Soph and James at the airport to give them a lift down to Mission Beach. Along the way we stopped at Babinda Boulders as I thought it might be a great location to do shoot. We weren’t disappointed and my first shoot was underway technically even before OzFest was to begin.

I’ve shot with Soph on two previous occasions and both times were fantastic and we achieved some really memorable images. This time was just as great and was a perfect way to kick off my week of shooting art nudes in tropical North Queensland.

Sunday was a fairly relaxing day spent checking out the local markets and looking for some shoot locations before the majority of the group arrived.

We had our meet and great BBQ Sunday evening and it was great to finally meet everyone who I had only met in cyberspace before. Considering this is my first Zoe Fest event, everyone has been super friendly to me and I can see why everyone loves to attend every year.

I get the feeling this will be a fantastic week and I’m sure this will not be my last Zoe Fest.
