Tiki Shoot with Keith of Shifting Light Photography

Last month I collaborated with Kieth of Shifting Light photography to shoot some tiki themed goodness!  Planet Retro has a great write up on Tiki History / Tiki Pop so make sure you visit here and have a read!

Kieth and I chose the Hamilton Gardens Green house for the shoot, filled with lots of beautiful and lush plants it was the perfect location to the capture the essence of a tropical paradise. We wanted to capture a classic style of tiki culture so stuck with tropical fabrics and style elements.
