Another week, another fun agency shoot. This time the model was Lisa, an Oxfordshire-based model represented by Bath/London ShootDHS. Lisa had completed plenty of catwalk work but was looking to increase her experience in front of the camera and bag some great images for her portfolio.
Our theme was ‘vintage modern’ and after a last-minute reshuffle of our makeup artist my hair and makeup team included talented local hair stylist Gemma Smart and Michaela Kompisova, a recommendation by City of Bristol College Makeup Lecturer and YouTube tutorial celebrity, Jo Peters. Michaela had plenty of strong ideas to implement at short notice and gave a great contemporary twist to our look, although she’s also a whizz with more theatrical, special effects makeup artistry – something to bear in mind for any future shoots with a high concept.
We fired off a few shots in the home studio before a quick trip to Clifton Village to seek out interesting Georgian architecture and doorways to use as background texture.
