Beauty Editorial Photography

I recently shot a beauty editorial story in my studio where I tested out my new toy (645 medium format film camera). The camera has auto focus and my favourite type of blur, plus the 16 images per each 120 roll is not so bad either ;) That’s pretty much the main reason I wanted to try it out.
The camera operation was smooth without any troubleshooting, so for now, I guess I will keep it!

Here’s one of the images from the session.

Thank you to everyone involved for making this one happen / kind & modest Melanie Jane (Model), and my talented teammates Windy Chiu (HMUA) and Michelle Davis (Stylist).

My teammates and I met up for another studio session the other day.
This time around, I set up the lighting to emphasize the shadows. All the while I keep things feeling natural with certain flatness I incorporated as opposed to making it punchy and full of contrast (which would give it that “studio look”).
We worked with Elena from Elmer Olsen Models.
She was very smart and super quick to pick up on our our concept, making my job that day fairly easy! I wish her nothing but the best for an awesome modelling career and am hoping she gets lots of great opportunities in the near future.


Here’s one of my favourites from the shoot :)

Fashion editorial photography

Before it gets too cold, we have to take advantage of shooting outside. Our latest editorial was no exception.
Although the whether was cloudy and overcast, it was still bright enough for us to shoot under the right exposure.
Here’s my favourite shot from the day of. As per the editing time, I decided to go for a black & white treatment, focusing on showing as much tonality as possible.

Thank you as always to my great teammates for your time and effort :)
