Simona's Natural Light Shoot

Last week I had the pleasure of shooting Simona - a dancer and dance teacher from Birmingham. Having agreed to meet in the city centre an hour before sunset, we started down Broad Street on the search for some suitable backdrops. Simona is a great and aspiring model, I had worked with her previously as the producer of a short and psychedelic music video with the talented Sentient Visuals, in which she played a burlesque dancer. 

Birmingham has more canals than Venice, and the area around the canals is rich with music, food, drink, and backgrounds that scream to be turned into creamy bokeh! After half an hour of using only a reflector - the light dropped and we had to break out the strobes. Here's some of what we ended up creating.

We conduct Model portfolio sessions every Tuesday and Wednesday - if you would like to book a shoot, get in touch via our contact page.
