It's been far too long since I've tested with a commercial model so it was great to receive an email from Andrea Vasiliou, an agency signed model who was looking to create fresh shots for her portfolio and likes my style of work.
Andrea came to me with some great ideas and had already created a moodboard showing the type of lifestyle image she was hoping to create. A quick glance at Andrea's profile on MOT models website followed by a phone call to discuss ideas and a shoot was arranged for the following week.
As we had both been really busy with other work commitments but still wanted to meet, we decided to make it a quick shoot and keep it to just the two of us. Being a lifestyle shoot, Andrea did her own makeup out of the back of my car and photography equipment consisted of my Canon 5D mkIII, a couple of lenses and a reflector. It's amazing what you can create in 2 hour shoot?
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Andrea and we are already talking about another shoot soon which is going to be very exciting so as always, watch this space!
