Modelling portfolio fashion beauty shoot for Monique's folio with a classical feel of elegance.

A model's headshots need both to capture something of her/his looks and personality, but also give an idea of where she/he can take us. This image was one of four looks I created with the help of Karen Hopwood, one my favourite hair and makeup artists. Karen's talent and work ethic promote confidence that we would get the great images we aim for.
I have shot with Monique a few times (see older posts) and still have many more image ideas of her stunning red hair to "get on film".

Fashion swimwear shoot in urban location shows off Monique's edgy look

Shooting some swimear for Monique's portfolio in one of my favourite urban locations was a rewarding experience. The simple black onepiece swimsuit I shot her in emphasised her edgy and sexy look.

Fashion beauty portraits from my recent shoots

The more I look at this, the more I love it, it's the strength and intensity of the connection Gillian has with us through the lens that holds my attention. Something that is rare in today's world of anaemic and insipid images. A world where so many are scared to show emotion. We need strong images now more than ever, before we drown in this insipid sea of mediocrity that is flooding us. Bland is not something I want to endorse.
