Cristina Chereches in Dubai

 

Meet Christina, the beautiful Romanian Model, based in Abu Dhabi but who travels the world. I found Christina on Model Mayhem while searching for models to shoot in Dubai. I was visiting Australia in February 2016, with a stop off in Dubai, so it was a great opportunity to get a shoot in or two.

We only had 2 hours to shoot in my place in Dubai,  a 34th floor apartment. It was some natural looks, minimal makeup, nothing too fancy. The setup was kept minimal also, using just window light for the majority of the shots. For the last set on the bed, I introduced a speedlight into the mix. I experimenting playing around with it as a fill light for some shots and using it as a key. I had connected to a pocket wizard, so it was wireless and hence Christina was able to play around with it.

I have been fortunate to work with various Miss Ireland’s over the years. It is always great working with such beautiful, elegant and hard working women. Sacha is no different. The Hillsborough beauty worked her way up from the Miss Antrim title to the goal of Miss Ireland. She is currently with CMPR so is no stranger to the fashion world and presenting herself well.  Unfortunately success wasn’t to be had at the Miss World event, but she was a great ambassador for Ireland.

We had a great day shooting in studio, with a nice early start for Sacha for her drive down. We were aiming for a easygoing test shoot, natural makeup, nothing major. Sacha looked after her own hair and makeup for the shoot and what a great job she done.  We shoot on my usual white background and we also tried out my new black corner set. It is a still work in progress and there is lots of testing to do with it to see what kind of light can be achieved with it, but so far so good.

The bodysuit look against the white wall was the more striking of the looks. It showed off Sacha’s 5’9 figure perfectly. The shots were featured in the Irish Sun in March 20th. Screenshot shown below also.

As you can tell, I have not been posting as much behind the scenes posts as much anymore, that is purely a time issue. Social Media is the best way to see what I get up to on a shoot. Click on the links on the top right. Also, if you have any questions on anything, post them in the comments below.

I met up with Holly Kiser on my last trip to LA. Holly is an amazing model to work with. I picked her and Irish Model Roz Lispett up in LA and we heded up the coast to Malibu for a drive. We stopped off at this beach to get a few shots. 150307_holly_047

Johanna “Jo” Archbold is one of the  rising models at the moment and an aspiring photographer. Currently with Assets after moving from 1st Option, she is super busy these days. I shot with Jo twice just before she signed with Assets, just test shoots. One shoot on location and the other in studio. Here is a selection of shots from both days.

Jo is great to work with. As well as being beautiful, she is a great model and good craic too. We good range of shots from the days, from natural right up to a sexy lingerie look. Hard to say which look was my favourite as there was so many nice shots to choose.
