Not your usual Naval uniforms

Put a fashion shoot on a naval ship, and you’d probably expect a barrage of nautical cliches. But there are no blue and white stripes or brass buttons on Peter Coulson‘s latest shoot. Set against the dramatic backdrop of rolling clouds and the HMAS Williamstown‘s decks, Coulson’s shoot instead contrasts chubby fur coats against long bare legs. Styled by Aaron Love, the furs may not…

Bellechasse lingerie after dark

This is not the first time Teisha Lowry has ventured through Melbourne’s streets wearing nothing but undergarments. Last time it was in the bright light of day. This time after nightfall. Both times the adventurous campaign was captured by the lens of Peter Coulson. Both created for Bellechasse lingerie, the shoots aren’t just about a beautiful model wearing beautiful lingerie; they’re about confidence and daring…

Beauty in Urbandon

We’re yet to grow tired of the regular collaborations between photographer Peter Coulson and designer/creative madman/magpie Don Pezzano from Urbandon. The latter description is penned with the best regard: Pezzano’s pieces are always creatively put together from reclaimed bits and pieces (see this photoshoot for one of Coulson’s shoots of Urbandon’s unique jewellery pieces) and that’s all part of their appeal. In this shoot model…

The abandoned bride

Peter Coulson has a talent for mixing the dark and the sensual, and he isn’t afraid to use it. Veiled by tulle and with a lace gown that bares her full silhouette, his latest crumbling beauty is a bride abandoned against an industrial, graffitied backdrop. Hauntingly shot in black and white, the shoot features antique veils and gowns by Montage.

Bellechasse: lingerie on display

Bellechasse are something of an Australian answer to the UK’s Agent Provocateur or Lascivious. They’re all the kind of brands where fashion and fetish and lingerie and luxury all tangle together into one intoxicating blend; where underwear begs to become outerwear, too good to remain covered. Peter Coulson shot this campaign for Bellechasse which plays to that desire to liberate your lingerie out into the…

Office fetish

How does a fashion photographer – one who specialises in the edgy and the fetishist, at that – go about conceptualising a campaign for an office storage company? For Peter Coulson, working with Australian brand Planex, the answer was obvious: a black and white shoot that would doff its hat in homage to the late, great, Helmut Newton. Office storage might not seem conducive to…

The 30 year old model

Age strips us of some things but affords us others. The sweet allure of innocence and naivety are replaced with the strong appeal of knowledge and sexual confidence. But youth and maturity are apples and oranges. They attract different audiences, sell themselves on different qualities, and can’t really be compared. Neither is unequivocally better than the other. Models usually start out their careers in youth,…

Girls who look like boys

Would it be fair to say that androgyny is an attitude? Sure, a set of features that sway a little to one side of the gender divide, at least in the bounds of society’s usual perceptions, makes a difference; but beyond that a boy who has a feminine grace or a girl who wears a masculine attitude are the most convincing androgynes. Peter Coulson took…

Strange entomology: collecting Matcho Suba

Collecting beetles or butterflies can be viewed as an innocent hobby; a simple fascination with insect life. In another worldview its the obsessive hobby of the lonely, of those who crave god-like control over something in their world. Cultural references like John Fowles’ novel The Collector haven’t done much to steer perceptions away from the latter, and it’s these perception that give this brilliantly creative…

Ballet, but not the Disney version

There are flowering bursts of tulle on torso, head, and feet, like snow-white tutus in an all-over-body Swan Lake. Put some Tchaikovsky behind Peter Coulson‘s shoot of model Tara and it could be a live action sequence from Disney’s Fantasia. There are no costume changes in this story of movement and silhouette, though, except when Tara’s white-winged outfits diminish through the frames, changing in their…
