Now, I don’t think I have blogged about this set yet. And why not? Well…. Things have been busy! I know, not really an excuse. Please do forgive the lack of blog posts. I have been upto my eyes in writing my dissertation for my MSc, so most creative stuff has had to slide. I’m meant to be modelling full-time over the summer, but just haven’t had the chance to :(
Anyways, blah blah blah. Enough of that. Onto this set!
Well, I can’t actually remember when this shoot was (sometime late last year). But, I do remember that it came about after I received a Facebook message from someone asking about it. Now, I have never had a Facebook message that is clearly about a shoot. And this was e first time I had ever spoken to this photographer. Anywho, I enquirer further and found out a whole team was involved. Checking out everyone’s ports, they looked amazing!
So, on the day of the shoot, I merrily travelled to Oxford. Now. I love the city and been there a few times, but this was my first shoot there and with completely new people I had never worked with before.
And so, I was lucky enough to have the pleasure of modelling for:
Milliner: Jayne Elizabeth millinery
Stylist (corset maker): Lyndsey Clark
MUA and wig-maker: Anna Zucineska
Studio: Studio Blanco
The shoot was a blast! Norbert did submit images to Dark Beauty magazine and they did show them on the website, but sadly not in print. A little disappointed as they are incredible images! But, I am so pleased with how they turned out.
Since the shoot, I have been back to the studio for a shoot and have modelled a beautiful hat by Jayne. Hoping to work with her again soon! I would love to model some of Lyndsey’s beautiful creations again (possibly got a shoot coming up in the Autumn). All-in-all, super successful, immense fun and something very different for me. For those on PurplePort, one of these images made it as a FPI :)
