How do you make a lingerie shoot stand out in a way that reads excitement, fun and above all allurement, without applying to the fashionable but classic recipes? Photographer Peter Coulson chose the wild road, highlighting the fabulous pieces of lingerie signed by Kisskill in an untamed editorial, photographed at the Windsor Hotel in Melbourne, teaming up with brunette beauties Tanya Alijani and Melody Le.
Clothing label Raven are purveyors of all things dark and alternative, but then with gothic styling making a revival into high fashion, dark and alternative are two qualities in strong demand. To shoot pieces from Raven’s autumn 2013 collection, Peter Coulson was certifiably the man for the job, pairing up with model Rebecca again and turning her into something of a raven-haired Alice in a…

Photographer Peter Coulson makes light and shadow work so hard for him, and in so many different ways, that you start to wonder if he pays them overtime. A simple black and white portrait of a model is rarely simple with Coulson: like this shoot of Anne Duffy that feels more like an artful experiment in making shadow and light battle it out. Sometimes light…

There is one word that seems to bear to mind when first glancing Rebecca Pead in this photo shoot: dark. But darkness in how many forms? Mysterious, shady, iniquitous, clandestine, dusky, haunted, doleful.

Peter Coulson’s shoot Bois Flotte brought out the drama of nature at its best: sands stretching in every direction, foreboding clouds filling the skies above.

The sea has a funny way of returning things to shore when it’s done with them. Like the 28,800 bath toys that spilled into the sea in 1992 and were still found washing up on shores around the world over a decade later (the dispersed army of adorable, unsinkable yellow rubber duckies inspiring – amoung other things – a 416 page book) or the 80,000…

Handmade in Melbourne by Aleem Yusuf for couture line AYC, the tasselled bunches of phosphorescent white or teal are like sea anemones that have been plucked from their watery home. Strands of beads are coral coloured or made to look like black…

Half obscured by a curtain of raven black hair, Peter Coulson‘s model Anne Duffy looks equal parts Snow White and Evil Queen. It’s a series of unfussy black and white portraits that focus on contrasts, and raw energy. Clothed in a black sheer knit by sustainable fashion label Urbandon, Duffy could quite easily slip into the Gothic subplot of the season.

If you saw Peter Coulson‘s Night On The Town shoot for Bellechasse lingerie, one of the questions that might have flitted through your mind was the question of how it was shot. Or more to the point, of how daring model Teisha Lowry must be to pose in the middle of a busy city in nothing but lingerie and heels. This fun behind-the-scenes video will…
