On a chilly but bright early Spring 2019, our team of intrepid creatives ventured to Shoreham Harbour beach front to photograph an editorial for Shuba Magazine. Our beautiful model for the day was the stunning Jen from BMA models wearing a stunning selection of stylish outfits designed by the talented stylist Liz White. Our hair and make up artist for the day was the super lovelocks;y and equally talented Louise Andrews .
As with any location photoshoot, the weather is always a major factor. Being early Spring in Sussex we never know what to expect, but luckily (for Jen anyway) the weather was bright but chilly. I am always amazed at how resilient models are when asked to wear a flimsy outfit and look beautiful in sub zero temperatures. Jen is a true pro however, nothing was too big an ask- she was barefoot all the time and didn’t complain once!- Okay, maybe just the once when I asked her to go into the sea!
She still obliged my creative request, unfortunately after turning instantly blue, we all thought it best that she came out again super quick. When models are pushed to their physical limits the photo’s aren’t usually the best, as was in this case! Something to be remembered for all future photo shoots I think.
These behind the scene images are mainly taken by me to save time with light metering/white balancing and colour collaboration. I try not to waist the model’s valuable ‘Go’ time by making them wait for me to set up. I also like to take these sort of behind the scenes shots for the team’s portfolios, as well as being an interesting record of the day.
The final shoot is available to see on my Fashion pages, its one of my personal favourite shoots. I particularly enjoy the colour and contrast of the back drop. Soft pastels and sometimes harsh light (although in these moments we were all warmed up somewhat. I hope you enjoy seeing what god on in a location shoot- My camera for this shoot was a Nikon D810 with a 50mm Prime lens f1.8.
