The story is pretty short: when Julia arrived in Brisbane, she got an Uber with my friend Dale. Dale then mentioned he had a Brazilian model as a passenger. I started following her and waited for her to contact me for a shoot. We had a test shoot on a Tuesday and on the Thursday after (2 days later) she was already back for a beauty shoot with Andrea! Things moved FAST!!!
If you have been following my work, Andrea shouldn’t need any introductions. I have worked with her quite a bit now and we pretty much became friends since our first shoot together!!
I rarely shoot beauty, but I thought it was a good idea to get some colourful work done since I’ve been shooting a lot of Black & White, so this is what we got up to. I bought some colourful paper from Officeworks and on the day of the shoot we discussed what background colours would go well with which makeup colours… and this is what we created 🙂
