Kim Freckelton is an Adelaide glamour model. I have photographed her multiple times over the years, mostly as a swimwear model for a local swimwear designer. As a swimwear model, Kim Freckelton is beyond compare. Here is a selection of images of Kim.

I got together with Sophia Anna to create some Jessica Jones inspired images. Sophia is among other things, a model and an advocate for those suffering invisible illness. Check out her instagram at @sophiaannamodel

Jessica Jones is a Marvel character, who had a series lasting three seasons on Netflix. She has some superpowers, including great physical strength and apparently the ability to consume vast quantities of alcohol which helps with her PTSD.

Shooting Film at Bone Gully

We went to Bone Gully in Kuitpo Forest south of Adelaide recently, specifically to shoot on Hasselblads: the relatively old H4D40 digital camera and the much older 500CM film camera, loaded with Kodak Portra 400. Twelve shots on the roll, one roll only. Focussing this camera is quite difficult, it has no autofocus, no auto exposure, no auto anything. No electronics, no battery. When I got the film back I found that 6 shots were a little out of focus, the other six were good. I did not shoot tight enough, so the resultant scanned images have been cropped in Lightroom, no other changes made.

Kim Freckelton, Model

I first shot Kim Freckelton in Feb 2010 and since then several times, but last time would have been a couple of years ago. Mostly I’ve shot swimwear, focussing on our own brand, Kato Swim, though that first shoot was intended to be the basis of a tutorial on shooting with strobes outdoors. This never eventuated, though I had shot a considerable amount of material using a range of different lighting systems. Those were the days when we could get up and shoot in the dawn’s early light. I’m not a great fan of shooting at sunset, because, once the sun sets, you’re finished. If you shoot at dawn, once the magic (half) hour has passed, you still have light. Anyway, Kim has always been a great model, very professional and always giving her best. Some more images here.

Kim Freckelton - as Bond girl Halle Berry

These two images, channeling Marilyn Monroe in the first and Halle Berry Bond girl in the second, show the range of Kim’s work. Today she is more likely to be photographed in a bikini than anything else, and positions herself as a glamour model. I’ll leave it to AussieBabes to show more of Kim’s glamour side, meantime here are a couple of her swimwear images for Kato Swim.
