2017 Swimsuit Series - #1 Tayler

You can always tell that summer is just around the corner when you see the first Swimsuit Series blog post is up.    This shoot was with Tayler, who is a model from Canada.  She was here on vacation last week.
This time of year the weather can be a bit unpredictable, but we lucked out and got a perfect day.   Here's to many more perfect days for the rest of the summer, and hopefully a few more swimsuit shoots !

The Birthday Shoot: Part 1

Last month I hit a major age milestone, yes the Big 5 0 !!!   To celebrate, I decided to organise a big shoot and invited some good friends that I have worked closely with over the last six or seven years.  For Make-up, I invited Afroditi, Maria and Serena, for Hair I invited Pinky from Salon Pink who also brought Ciara, also Bryant came to assist with lighting and live streaming of the shoot.  Alex kindly allowed me to use whitespace studio for the day.
I asked some local designers if they had any outfits I could use and base a concept around.  Amir Robinson (Gino Group) loaned 6 outfits from his recent fashion show,  Desiree Riley (D'ezir) offered to model and also provided a couple of outfits from her collection and Chineza (Sevuhn) came to the shoot with another 5 outfits.    In addition to Desiree, I asked Aliana and Teah to be the models.

D'ezir Noire

A couple of weeks ago I got to shoot the latest collection from D'ezir and as the title indicates everything in the collection is black.  Not only is Desiree the owner/designer of D'ezir, she was also the model for the shoot and creative director.  She provided inspiration images and scouted out the location, making my role in the shoot fairly straight forward.
Desiree asked Christopher Vee to do the make-up and Tracy from StylzBy Traci did the hair.  Bryant was my lighting assistant and Kyla, my dog, made a guest appearance too.

How Rude !! - with Dani

This shoot with Dani is inspired by some cheeky and sometimes rather raunchy Instagram accounts that I follow.   Since Dani brought a pink teddy bear as a prop,   it seems appropriate to post the blog today.........

Happy Valentines peeps.

Street Style with Sophie

I did this shoot with Sophie whilst she was back on island for the winter break.  Sophie wanted some natural looking shots with a casual street style vibe for her portfolio, whereas I was interested in getting some images that were more edited, higher contrast, stronger shadows and with a brighter wardrobe.   So we decided to shoot both styles.  Sophie got in contact with her friend Kristen at Modblu on Reid Street.  Kristen kindly allowed us to use clothes from the store.  She pulled and styled a selection of outfits that met both of our needs.
