Met the wonderful Jess through an affiliate website and what a pleasure it was to work with her. We initially planned a fashion type shoot, but the afternoon light and our creative input went the other direction and we ended up doing some nudes. I am always intrigued at how some people are just so comfortable in their own skins and it a pleasure to photograph.
There is some pressure on me to capture the model in a way that will make them proud and inspired to do more. Here is an extract of the mail I received from her on showing some of the pics.
“I was quite nervous to begin with, as I haven't done fashion in a long time, and I wasn't too sure what I was supposed to do. Grant however had a complete picture in his mind and it was easy to follow and helped me find my own direction. His eagerness, motivation and light hearted sense of humour made it very easy to warm up to the camera.
SHO! OH WOW were the words I mainly used when grant showed me the pictures, I was in absolute awe. I'd never ever seen myself captured that way, and I was loving it. Having only been against a black backdrop, it was so refreshing seeing myself in fashion in an outdoor setting and it boosted my confidence to new heights, and let me tell you about those nudes... WOW... When I looked at those pictures I felt like I was a tribal girl, who had been going about her everyday thing, and without me knowing there had been someone who had captured these beautiful moments. I was highly impressed with Grants skills. “
Definitely one model that I would want to use more so keep looking for more pictures and updates. Once again, it is such a privilege to be living in this beautiful part of the world with locations like this in your backyard so to speak.
Thank you Jess
