Fashion and beauty photography in London
When I got my first camera there were two projects that I had in mind and really wanted to do at some point. My first idea was to photograph different models in black and white with wet hair, with none or little makeup. This idea has been rolling around in my head for about two years. So I finally did it! I photographed 5 beautiful models from BAME. I absolutely loved the shoot!
I planned the shoot and booked a makeup artist to do very minimal makeup only to highlight the model’s features. I shot the series in my living room with one Elinchrom light with a beauty dish. I did not have a black background or a background stand so I grabbed my dark red bead cover and hung it up on my curtain pole!
We started the makeup one by one and the models just kept coming! It was so much fun to have all those girls in my living room enjoying the photoshoot. I shot one girl at a time, while the next one was having her makeup done.
We had so much fun and I loved how the photographs turned out. I love that I was finally up to creating this project that had been in my head for so long. Picking the photographs was the hardest part, there were simply so many that I loved!
