With Christmas holidays well under way so I though I would post a couple of editorials from my archives. These two shoots were shot in New York and Sydney.....both commissioned editorial jobs and not to mention two of my favorite shoots from the last 3 years.
The first editorial was for Tantalum magazine. Which was shot in New York..........The location was the living area of a photographer who rented out his space to anyone and everyone and in this case moi. After emailing back and forth with the magazine we decided on the location.........then came the casting of the model. Again not easy when you contact three agency's and get a choice of some amazing girls to work with. After a day of casting I chose Hannelie who hales from South Africa. The styling and make-up and hair was already organised before I arrived in New York. I sourced them before I flew out from Sydney. And once that all came together this is what the finished results looked like. To say the least the magazine "Tantalum" was very happy with the shoot and took it straight away. Independent magazines don't have to take shoots that they have commissioned so I was more than happy to see this go into what was a new magazine at the time.
Make-up and hair-Greg Hubbard
The Artist Muse was a bit of a last minute shoot when is came to concepts. I initially wanted to do a semi-nude beauty shoot with with Mikayla on the beach. But once I found out that my make-up artist Angie had asked her stylist friend Samara to style the shoot "it was on"!!!!
I had shot Mikayla about 6 weeks before this shot for another editorial so when I had the chance to work with her again I jumped at the chance. I can only describe Mikayla in one word and that is "Dream"........effortlessly moving from one pose to pose and from shot to shot. We nailed the whole editorial(6 shots) in 4 hours. And again once Huf magazine saw the results. It was a pretty easy decision to publish this story.
Hair- Natasha Hemi
LaMode is a global online magazine in a blog-style format, or what I would like to call a onlineZine. With a focus on Fashion, Swimwear and Culture editorials. LaMode Magazine is not seasonal with its editorials because we like to shoot imagery that is on point to what we think will entertain you as the reader with our point of view.
