NIGHT LIGHT EDITORIAL WITH CHARISSA

Oh guys, Charissa is such a beauty. And she just so happens to be an amazing person too. Obvs. I've wanted to shoot with her to aaaaaaages and being the absolute sweetie that she is, she agreed to shoot with us after she had spent a full day on another shoot already. I know right? The full package.

So off we went to the streets of Cape Town and Charissa started to literally stop traffic.

DIRE WOLF EDITORIAL WITH REMCO

At the beginning of the year, I had the pleasure of going on a little road trip with some very good looking and very talented people. This editorial is the result of this trip.






Remco is an amazing guy. There's only one other person I know with this much passion and knowledge for what he does, and I'm related to him. Remco's been in the industry for a while and he's super clued up with what's going on and how to market oneself. He's easily one of the nicest people I've ever met and I cheekily think of him as a good friend ;)

At first I was incredibly intimidated to be working with him, but he's so relaxed and open to collaboration, that my insecurities quickly faded away.

It was not only a pleasure to shoot with Remco again, but it was a privilege to spend time with him and his loved ones away from the bustle of the city and just talk, drink wine and tell stories.

LEE-ANN ROBERTS BY JACQUES WEYERS

How hot is this shoot with Lee-Ann Roberts?! I had the immense pleasure of shooting with Jacques Weyers for a commercial client recently and we piggy-backed this little shoot onto his Durban trip ;)

Daniella Capriati styled and I just love how laid back and sexy this shoot is! We shot in Thompsons Bay and started early in the morning to get the beautiful morning light.

I wanted to keep the makeup look simple and a little sultry; a lot of Lee-Ann's work is very sexy and very smokey. I kept her skin as dewy and flawless as possible, bronzed up her bod and let her hair stay loose and tousled.

WHITE TEE PORTRAITS BY VAUGHAN TREYVELLAN

I've had the pleasure of being one of the MUA's working on this series with Vaughan. Every shoot that he can, he steals the model for a quick portrait shot in a white T of their choice. This series is more focused on the models' personality, which is so interesting to witness on set....how the person chooses to portray themselves, how relaxed they are in front of the camera and then of course, the ones that blow you away in front of the camera.

Often I get schooled on set about judging a person before they step in front of the camera. One thing is for certain - people will always surprise you!

In Cape Town earlier this year, we contacted a bunch of agencies and organised a couple days in which we only shot for the portrait series. The makeup look is always natural, so it's easy-ish to do but JEEZ did I do a lot of faces!

I must thank all the agencies and models who took part in this series and were so accommodating with their time and gracious with their help. It means so much to both Vaughan and I that we have your incredible support and friendship!
