Ashanti Gibbons by Paloma Pernica

This is the second of four shoots that I did with the Make-up artists at the MAC store.  The make-up for this one was done by Paloma, who has recently joined the team.   The model is Ashanti Gibbons.  Just like Kira in the first shoot and also Jessica in the one that will follow shortly, I scouted Ashanti at the Evolution fashion show rehearsals

Kira Doran - Make up by Marcia Adiutori

This is the first of four shoots that I will be posting from a shoot I did with the Make-up artists at the MAC store.
The shoot was discussed last summer when I was visiting MAC on a regular basis.  Marcia came up with the idea of having a little party  one night after work.  It was a great idea, we had wine and nibbles and each MUA's had to come up with their own creative make up concept, which I then got to shoot.  I stayed off the wine for as long as I could resist.

Alex Anderson - Make Up By Serena Brangman

This is the fifth and final Beauty shoot from the series that I did in collaboration with Make-up Artist Serena Brangman.   Alex was chosen for obvious reasons, firstly she is a very good friend of Serena and more importantly one of Bermuda's most experienced models.  By the time it came to shoot Alex we had been at the studio for about 6.5 hours, it was late and we were all tired and hungry and I was running out of creative inspiration.  One of benefits of working with an experienced model like Alex, is that she knows how to pose, how to create interesting angles and how to model to the lighting setup, meaning I didn't have to direct or think too much at all.   It didn't take very long before we had enough good shots from a variety of angles and were able to call a day.

Nea Pantry - Make Up By Serena Brangman

 This is the fourth in the series of beauty shoots that I did with make up artist Serena Brangman.  The model is Nea Pantry.  I have been wanting to shoot with Nea since 2008 when we briefly shot at a group event with multiple models and photographers.  However, Nea was has been off island a lot away at college and my summers have been booked by the time she has returned.  I was pleased to hear that Serena had chosen her as one of the models.

Sherall Seymour - Make Up By Serena Brangman

This shoot with Sherall is the second of a series of five Beauty shoots that I did in collaboration with Serena Brangman.

Serena wanted the five models to differ in ethnicity and skin tone.  Sherall was chosen for her dark skin tones and Indian mix.  I had shot Sherall last year and once I'd shown Serena those pics we agreed that she was the perfect choice.  Obviously being gorgeous was also a key factor LOL.

Sophie Adams - Make Up By Serena Brangman

Last week Serena Brangman and I collaborated on a series of beauty shoots.  Serena was looking to add some more beauty images to her portfolio and as the NFL season is drawing to a close, it was time for me to get off the couch and start shooting again.   We shot 5 models during a 7 hour session.

The first model is Sophie Adams.  Serena was looking for a variety of skin colours and ethnicity.  I suggested we use Sophie for the "white" girl.
