(UPDATE) I did a second part to this concept with model Soowan Bramble.


I am always coming across gorgeous macro photos of glitter, and being a portrait photographer I wanted to incorporate glitter (a lot of glitter) into a portrait series. The model, Sarah, was a real trooper! Pretty sure she will be sparkling for the next few years. Gianna Barcant did an amazing job with the glitter placement and use of different textured gems on Sarah’s face.

For those wondering about the light set up, I used natural light as the main light, and three gelled strobes at different positions behind her for the colour effect. Shot with a 50mm 1.8 lens. Glitter sprinkled in front of her for the pieces that you see floating around (lots of it ended up in her mouth, oops) , and a fan for the hair motion.

Carnival 2012 photoshoot for Project Runway winner Anya Ayoung-Chee

Three days ago we stood on the roof of the Ayoung-Chee family home and had an amazing photo shoot. Anya has designed a beautiful section for TRIBE’s 2012 Carnival band. After a week of heavy rains and massive flooding in nearby locations, we were extremely lucky to have a break of non-rainy weather (just extremely cloudy, but it worked!) The gorgeous model is Kristy Agar, makeup by Gianna Barcant. Trinidad’s Northern Range made a stunning backdrop for this set.
