When Tanya planned on directing some of her own material, she certainly didn't plan on her first creation being a TV Commercial to represent the City of Perth's Winter Arts Festival 2014!
It was a huge honour being asked by Producer Damien Blythe to come up with a concept and then write, choreograph, teach, direct and perform in the dance-based commercial within just two weeks!
Despite it being a challenging task Tanya worked with a fantastic crew, including Director of Photography Michael McDermott from Transvision, to pull off a detailed and original piece of work. The commercial screened on prime time television station, Channel 7, across Western Australia throughout June and July, returning lots of positive feedback.
The opportunity to create something of her own was an exhilirating whirlwind and she would do it all over again!
Earlier this year Tanya was asked to shoot a beautiful Mexican themed bridal shoot, named 'Mexican Fries' by photographer Jason Tey, which was based on a real life couple who came together.
Although Tanya was selected based on her model look, her acting ability was a bonus to bring the love to life.
After being published on the world's number one wedding blog, Style Me Pretty , the editor of ELLE magazine in Taiwan saw the shoot and decided to publish it in their June edition.
It was a great experience which resulted in positive international exposure and reach! Tanya's Eurasian look proves to be diverse and appealing to international audiences.
