New Blog & Website

Hello There.

You may have wondered where I have been.  Or you may have accidentally stumbled across this page and not wondering at all.

I’ve have incorporated my blog and website into one.  Yay.  Together at last.

Maintaining a separate blog was becoming….well, non existent really.  Apologies.

If you would like to have a look at some cool stuff, you might want to jump to www.jennifermendezphotography.com

Ok,  I’m not making any promised regarding the cool stuff.  You’ll have to decide for yourself.

This blog will be looking much like the picture below from now on.

How much is that doggy in the window?

The one with the unwavering stare….

Frida & Diego

The dog’s name is Diego, no joke.  And if you are familiar with Frida Kahlo, the Mexican artist, you would also know that she was married to another famous Mexican artist, Diego Rivera.

Here they are again, together at last.  Reincarnated as a pug and super awesome tattoo.

Another piece for the Colour on My Skin project.

The Festival

I have been meaning to post these for a while…

I was lucky enough to shoot the Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival in Brisbane at the end of August.  Sometimes I have to pinch myself…so much has happened in a year.

There was some great innovative fashion to be seen, it was hard to pick a favourite designer.  But instead of showing you runway this time, I thought I would share some of my favourite shots from backstage…

Storm in a Teacup

Leesa was the first person I shot when I started my Colour on my Skin project but she went and got a new tattoo.  So, well, naturally I just had to have another go at it….

April in August

It’s been a little while since I shot images for my Colour on my Skin project.  Last time I photographed my friend Mike in Singapore, that seems like a million lightyears ago in May.

Yesterday, on a warm winter’s day in August, I shot April and her retro leopard skin bike.  I had mentioned my project to her and explained that the idea is to photograph people with tattoos in everyday situations whilst trying to maintain each person’s personality in the scene.  I had jokingly said that if she were a rollerblade queen, we would somehow incorporate it.  She replied with ‘I have this old school bike with leopard print’.  Yes, double fist pump.
