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.

For these shoots I decided to take a shot of each model before they went into make up so that you can see the transformation that occurs from Hair and Make up.
