Fashion Travels

If reality television has taught me anything, it's that the life of a model is a whole lot less glamourous than it seems. Sure there's free clothes and exciting travel, but there's also crazy ultra early mornings, lots of transit time, plus the challenge of standing and/or floating around in minimal clothing in sub-zero temperatures. And let's not forget Tyra Banks. Eek!

The life of a fashion photographer however...well I'm sure there's plenty of hard work and tedious travelling too, but when you're heading to beautiful, exotic locations sans tiny clothes and endless hair and makeup sessions, it all looks pretty damn glamourous to me!

And that is my excuse for virtually glowing green with envy as I flicked through the folio of German-based photographer Margaretha Olschewsk.







This shoot for Italian Grazia has my normal city sensibilities craving a little country escape. Rural New South Wales may not have an abundance (i.e. any) Romanesque ruins scattered around, but there's definitely a desire to flee from the city and soak up some fresh country air.




And while I'm at it, what's a little continent-hopping between friends? I would happily put a return to France on hold if the alternative was the opportunity to galavant around Morocco; first stop Marrakech! (Yet another gorgeous Italian Grazia shoot!)




Although if Europe does win out in the end, a trip to Spain is a must! So I'm told at least, I've yet to make it to that corner of the continent but I've heard good things. And if this shoot in Southern Spain is anything to go by (for, you guessed it, Italian Grazia!) I think I'll fit right in...if you exclude my completely unfounded fear of donkeys.




If the donkey happens to win out however, I'd happily retreat to the city if my accommodation looked a little something like this. Back on Margaretha's home soil in Hamburg, this shoot (for you-know-who) has me wishing my return to the Northerm Hemisphere was sooner rather than later. The travel bug has well and truly bitten!

In the meantime however, happy Friday and have a fantastic weekend!
