From Friday 10 January to Sunday 12 January the Surf n Ink Tattoo Festival is being held on the Gold Coast at the Convention Centre. Over the 3 days there will be entertainment, plenty of amazing tattoo artists and unique retailers.
At the Festival they will also be hosting the Miss Surf N Ink competition. They are searching for the sexiest tattooed lady that loves their ink and the beach. Would you like to be in the running to win awesome prizes including a photoshoot featured in Custom Tattooz Magazine? Just head over to www.tattoofestival.com.au and follow the instructions on how to enter this competition.
Well it’s summer again and that means lots of Gold Coast beach shoots! If you are a bit shy about your bikini shoot then I suggest doing your shoot on a weekday to avoid an audience!
One of my favourite magazines is Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. I love seeing all the beautiful images when this magazine comes out every February. The models look amazing and the photos are very natural. I do find it quite funny though that the photographer, models and crew all fly first class overseas to an exotic location, and then you only see a bit of sand and water in the final photograph so it could have been taken at a local beach for all anyone can tell!
The main reason I enjoy shooting outside is that I can capture the blue sky in my photos, and also achieve that gorgeous windswept look.
Here are some recent shots I’ve taken at the Spit. To view more of my work visit www.nikkibrown.com.au.
My clients often comment that they chose me as their glamour photographer because my images are sexy, yet still tasteful and classy. If you are looking for a female photographer to produce some classy and beautiful images for your portfolio, or as a gift for your partner, then I’d love to do a shoot for you!

Yay! The current issue of Inked Girls magazine is out now at newagencies.
Congratulations to model Ally, and hair and makeup artist Jennifer Wilde, for being published in the magazine.
A little bit about me … I specialise solely in glamour shoots as I absolutely love swimsuit and lingerie photography and so I know this style of photography inside out. Everyone is nervous before a glamour shoot, but they always relax once we meet and start shooting. As a female photographer I can help put you at ease for your shoot. My clients always comment on how comfortable they feel being photographed by me. This is such an important factor for a successful glamour shoot.
I can come to the location of your choice which means that you achieve unique photos that look different to the usual studio glamour shots – whether at your home, a hotel, the beach, or parkland. I will also give you lots of time and spend over 2 hours photographing you. I will guide you through the whole shoot and you will have fun.
One of my favourite parts of a shoot is when a client sees their image on the back of my camera and they cannot believe how beautiful they look. I know the poses and camera angles to accentuate your best assets and flatter your figure. I will also use my advanced retouching skills to further refine your images.

Gosh I love being a Brisbane boudoir photographer. Several months ago, Ally emailed me to say she was interested in getting some boudoir photography done to show off her tattoos. I shared with Ally that I had always wanted to do a bedroom shoot to submit to Inked Girls magazine, so she booked a hotel room in Brisbane CBD for a girls’ night out so that we could also use the room for the shoot.
It was obvious at the shoot that the photos were the perfect fit for Inked Girls magazine as Ally has a natural beauty that the magazine loves, great tattoos, and the hotel room was the perfect location. I had so much fun photographing her.
I can’t wait to see some of these images in print in Issue 10 of Inked Girls, coming out in the next month or so!

Pink Diamond Studios was a partnership between myself and my friend, Becky, who is a fabulous makeup artist. Becky has recently had a baby and is also about to move to the United States. I am sooo jealous as I have always wanted to live in America and hope to someday (or at the very least to holiday there every year)! If you are a previous client, or were a fan of Pink Diamond Studios, it has now merged into Nikki Brown Photography and you can now contact me at www.nikkibrown.com.au.
Becky and I had a blast working together and here are some favourite images that Becky and I created together. (The first photo is of the beautiful Becky herself!)
I love shooting inked girls! I recently photographed Jacqui, who is a part time model based on the Gold Coast. Her tattoos were such beautiful artwork. I envy tattoo artists for being able to create something that is appreciated every single day and carried around for all to see. It must be such a rewarding job.
For any photographers out there who need a gorgeous tattoo model, I really recommend you working with Jacqui. She has the longest legs I have ever seen, but even more importantly she really knows how to work it in front of the camera.
I’d love to photograph your tattoos for you! Some images of Jacqui are below. Visit my website www.nikkibrown.com.au to view more of my tattoo images.
As a Gold Coast glamour photographer, every few months I book out a hotel apartment for the weekend so that girls can have their glamour shoot in a nice hotel room for minimal cost. My last hotel shoot weekend was at the beginning of May and it was then that I photographed Clair.
Clair was lucky enough to secure an afternoon time slot which meant she got to do shots both in the hotel room as well as swimsuit shots on the beach. It can be hard to decide between lingerie or swimwear for your photo shoot, so to do both styles in the one shoot is such a bonus.
As you will see from the photos Clair is a beautiful girl, and she was also lots of fun to shoot with. The weather was perfect, we had clear blue skies and the afternoon light had such a magical quality.
Here are some of Clair’s gorgeous photos.

I have just had my first Gold Coast hotel shoot weekend, and it was amazing to hold glamour photography shoots there! The hotel room had the most spectacular views of the ocean, and as the hotel was right on the beachfront the lucky girls with an afternoon spot were able to do both boudoir photos in the hotel room and then some swimsuit photos on the beach.
I couldn’t believe my bad luck that I broke my toe right before the weekend and got told by the doctor that I had to stay off it for several days! I just made sure to put my feet up at every possible chance. I will definitely be doing many more hotel shoot weekends, so stay posted for final dates.
One of the girls I photographed during the hotel weekend sent me the most lovely email after she saw her images last night. She has said it is fine for me to share her email, and this is what she wrote:
‘It was such a pleasure to have met you! you are so nice and amazing to work with..never felt so relaxed with someone..and i have never felt so beautiful:-) the images were all so beautiful!! its so hard to choose from !!! aaaaaaaahhhhh! ;-P i will definitely recommend you to my friends..your work is absolutely stunning.. thank you so much Nikki.. it so nice to meet such a beautiful lady inside and out.. take care always.. and keep up the good work of making an everyday woman feel the most beautiful in the world.’
Wow! I sooo love my job, I get to meet such wonderful girls and have so much fun. Thanks Lorie for letting me share that – you are a gorgeous girl and such a pleasure to shoot with! Here is a photo from the shoot.
