Tropical Memories: Fashion and Beauty Editorial

Guess who’s back with some new images! Make-up artist Tamara Melville reached out to me recently to do a collaboration to shoot some beautiful spring looks, and knowing the quality of her work I was happy to be on board. We had worked together before with great results, so I knew I was in for a treat. 

Sue-Dionne Lewis, repped by State Management, was the model selected for the shoot, and she did exceptionally well. Working with Sue is a breeze because she instinctively knows the poses and faces to pull based on just a mood board or minimal direction. With that type of synergy, there was no way we wouldn’t get great images. The accessories provided by Vintage Chic Jewellery were wonderful and fit the mood of the shoot perfectly, ranging from rustic to earthy to vibrant. It’s evident that each piece was made lovingly and with great care. The dresses, provided by FHL Designs, embodied the spirit of spring and tropical feelings incredibly well with their flowing designs. 

 For assistance on this shoot, I contacted my colleague Kid Bazzle to assist me as a lighting and digital technician. He also created that lovely green backdrop! With myself, Tamara and Bazzle on set, we had a lovely time shooting each look, with Tamara styling each look effortlessly. As always, I shot tethered so that the images could be seen on a monitor almost instantly instead of on the back of the camera. I find this workflow to be very productive because what the human eye might not see, the camera picks it up! We had a great day, and some amazing images to show for it!
