Its such a pleasure to introduce this project as it’s not only a bloody good cause, it is a bloody CRAZY good opportunity to snap up affordable photographic art from some of our regions best!

A Bit More Soul began as a series of photographic retreats and over the years has come to represent a community of photographers, artists, poets and creative forces all bonded by their time spent together and being dedicated to nurturing, improving and mastering their passion.
I was lucky enough to attend and speak at their D’Urville Island retreat at the end of last year, and still, even now feel the positive effects of being included in the shared discussion, connection and feedback the group very regularly takes part in online.

So when one of their pivotal attendees and founding speakers suffered a personal tragedy just a few weeks ago, the group leapt into action! And the result is this AMAZING body of donated work made available to you at incredibly rare pricing. Most of these contributors are top of their respective photographic fields, they are professionals….but the work you see below is outside of “work”. Much of it is shot on film via personal projects, travels and just their own point of view!
This group includes some personal photographic heroes and respected friends of mine – I purchased my first piece within 2 minutes of getting the “we are live” email….and don’t think I am quite finished!

Take some time to browse the small selection I pulled below and click on through to explore the complete collection PLUS the sites of the contributing artists. Then decide if the small/large version will look best in your space. (That’s not really a question…bigger is always better!)

Get purchases done online before December 19 for Christmas delivery and YES Australians and beyond, you can get involved and own too!

Support local and support a family sideswiped so close to Christmas.

New from Just South West

New largescale photographic prints by Just South West // New Zealand - available online // as featured on Studio Home

I know it wasn’t long ago that I introduced the work of Christchurch photographer Stacey Weaver, and that if you follow me on my personal instagram my OWN Just South West print pops up a bit….but its because I really truly love to gaze at this work!!

Just South West offers prints that approach decent size ( I love BIG!) and make for bold pieces of art. Stacey’s latest additions continue with her interest in capturing that invisible line tread by flowers as they disappear toward a slow but beautiful decay.

Enjoy the 3 new images below and click through here for a pre Christmas trawl!

Beautiful photographic print by Just South West // New Zealand - available online // as featured on Studio Home, creative talent from the lands down under

Don’t be surprised if these poignant large scale prints look familiar – they are the work of Christchurch photographer Stacey Weaver and have, unsurprisingly, caught the eye of many top design stores.
I also felt captivated on spotting them for the first time, surprised at how drawn I was to the imperfection and beauty found in the last days of a proud bloom. End of days isn’t always a bad thing!

Stacey has followed up her debut range with the launch of her own online store for Just South West and a divine new collaborative collection with Alex & Corban (available exclusively in store and online here – scroll on down for preview!)

I’m really excited to see the larger than life visual goodness that Just South West will bring us NEXT!

George & Edi

George and Edi - boutique fragrance company // Wanaka, New Zealand - available online // Floral styling : Lu Diamond Flowers, Photography : Greta Kenyon // as featured on Studio Home
Lake Wanaka will always have a firm grip on my heart but I certainly can’t claim it as my own special place! Sarah and Rose Agnew of George & Edi also call it home and over the last 5 years have worked from their mountain base to explore their fascination with fragrance and “the ability it has to transform your home and your mood”.
I think fragrance and its design is one of the most romantic creative endeavors….but by far the most difficult to communicate visually!
So this latest shoot that George & Edi did with photographer Greta Kenyon and florist; Lu Diamond stood WAY out for me. As a lover of the G & E fragrances, I fell instantly in love with the luxurious mood and drama enveloping their candles, room sprays and reed diffusers seen below. The imagery matches their fragrances so well.

Pop on over to the George & Edi site to explore their whole collection further here.

“Salt and Sky” Collection by Brooke Holme

Salt + Sky Collection by Brooke Holm // exhibition at Modern Times, Melbourne // as featured on Studio Home

This is what happens when a photographer, with a special eye for the drama of the natural world, can get airborne to study the UNESCO Heritage site of Shark Bay from above. This new collection of large scale photography called; “Salt And Sky” by Brooke Holm opens this Thursday 23rd at Modern Times in Melbourne and can be viewed until the 7th of July.

Brooke is interested in both the tension and bond that exists simultaneously between humans and the natural world. The salt field landscapes that she captures are in her eyes provide “a visually stunning example of nature and human intervention entwined.” Shot from above, the salt ponds and harvested fields create graphic compositions with painterly textures in ice-cream hues.

“At a distance they can be enjoyed as pure studies in colour and composition but on closer inspection the smooth, creamy and powdery textures of the works are palpable as is the sensation of a breeze as it whips up the surface of the ponds,” says exhibition curator and Modern Times director Amy Malin.

It’s really true love for me. For those of you that can’t make it in person you can enjoy virtually here.

Photograph by Amy Wybrow - part of her collection exploring the botanical glass houses of New Zealand // available online via endemicworld.com // as featured on Studio Home

Without exception, a movie-like romance always sweeps through me when I step foot in a historical, botanical garden. It definitely the kind of place that people stumble across the love of the lives don’t you think?! Of course it is also a place of education and transformation! I have spent time pondering the effort required to cultivate these living collections way back when….
The conservatories were built in the time when the world felt bigger. Architects and botanists, in a way, attempted to make it smaller by creating these wondrous micro climates in the dryest of places!
Artist Amy Wybrow also gets all caught up in exploring them and the result has been a collection of haunting and kind of “very still” fine art photographs. I simply love her work and the way she has cropped her imagery. Something special!

Take some time to explore them further with her listings on Endemicworld here.
