Alyce Eden is a Sydney based photographer living in Freshwater, capturing fashion, portraits, weddings and branding content. Recently, armed with just a camera, a hire car and some of her favourite Staple the Label summer pieces, she explored the picturesque South Island of New Zealand to capture these beautiful images.
She was also kind enough to answer some questions about her photography work, where she finds inspiration, and her favourite place to shoot.
Monument Valley in the US is has been my most inspirational location to shoot. I love the vast landscapes and the earthy tones. Manifesting that next trip back!
The way I like to portray my style is focusing more on natural beauty and tones, and less about accentuating the normal "sex sells" visual. I love working with plants, organic shapes and general beauty of the land.
I always find myself photographing portraits. Focusing on individual and unique features especially when using natural light.
It's hard to pick one or even just a few things that inspire me. I love the warm morning light, nature and plants, eyeballs, organic forms, even fresh boots that I'll never wear. I think it's important to draw your creativity and inspiration from anywhere and any situation. As an artist this makes you able to adapt to all projects.
I tried everything else and it didn't work...more seriously, I love capturing a moment, an up-close feature or object, or even a vibe. Being a photographer gives you the opportunity to show how you see something through a visual snapshot.
I love to focus on more than just a moment or object. I love being able to almost feel the grain in the photo, or feel the wind in the bride's dress. Natural light and tones to bring out the true beauty.
