X Factor

Any X Factor fans out there? If you are one, you may have seen us Night Owls sneak our way in to the grand finale show on TV in amongst some of the behind the scenes footage of our shoot with a few of the X Factor contestants! We had an absolute blast shooting these guys, and we got to see some of their amazing singing talents up close. They are AMAZING.

Our photographs have been used for the X Factor winner, Jackie Thomas‘s single ‘It’s Worth It‘ and self-titled album cover, as well as runners up Whenua Patuwai‘s single ‘Something Special‘ and Benny Tipene‘s single ‘Walking On Water‘ artwork. Ya’ll should definitely check out their singles, as well as grabbing a copy of Jackie’s album which comes out this Friday!
