Lately, I’m beginning to see the benefit of working as part of a team and how it can really push your creative boundaries and allow you to experiment with something new and exciting. I feel like at this point I’ve done the ‘model in front of flowers/leaves’ to death, and I’ve been loving working with creatives to allow me to take photos that are completely out of my comfort zone.
A few weeks ago I connected with Vicktoria Manson on Facebook and though we were originally going to do a Universe inspired shoot, the stars did not align (terrible pun fully intended) and we decided to go for a Sun Goddess theme instead. Having Shingi as our model was absolutely wonderful, and I can’t wait to carry out our part 2 of this shoot!

BEHIND THE SCENES:
Capturing photos of the model getting ready is something I also really love doing, as it shows the transformation process before the shoot. And it does not have to be a poorly lit photo in dull lighting - you can actually make them quite striking! Behind the scenes shots are also often very helpful to your hair and make up artists, too, so keep that in mind.
