I've been wanting to shoot along Cemetery Road for quite a while, I thought that the Belco buildings and high wire fences would make for a cool backdrop for an urban wear shoot. The urban wear I had in mind was Yaya Apparel by Omejae Goater. Like most of the my recent fashion shoots, I saw his collection at the Capital Fashion show earlier this year. So I reached out to Omejae and asked if he still had any of the clothes from the show and whether I could borrow them for this shoot.
Fortunately he still had some outfits left and also some new ones that weren't in the show.
I suggested the concept to Riley and Karina and they were both free and interested in modeling. Maria offered to do the Make Up and Pinky, Rinelle and Chelsea (from Salon Pink) agreed to open up the Salon on Sunday so they could style the hair. Bryant and Jack came along to assist.
We started the shoot at 4pm and it was still really warm with little breeze and a mixture of clear skies and the odd big cloud. I used the 64" PLM without any diffusion.
