set3 final masqua-9 Thanks so much to everyone involved in this shoot. It was a pretty fast afternoon and everyone worked really hard to pull this off. Wow guys, next time I would definitely get an earlier check in somewhere for a few more hours. Thanks for the fab costume changes through out the afternoon girls and for being fabulous sports everyone. It was a pretty big cast and crew. So a big thank-you firstly to all of the gorgeous models, Valeria, Rachel, Jacquie, Johanna, Tahmyna, Alex, Damien and Simon. Thank-you also to the lovely make-up artists Dani-Elle Tsakonas, Patrice Gannopoulos and Diana Giannoulis and of course my assistant for the day. Hair was by the lovely Linda Thi, who is normally also a MUA aswell. Clothing is a mixture of vintage and new. Location: Sir Stamford

The shoot is Erwin Olaff inspired, I really admire most of his productions, they are calculated and all studio style, even on location, and are a little off key, sort of. I must say image 5 is an overkill of one of his images (that he shot for Elle). It actually isnt that similar, but the stance is the same. Just to let you know, Erwin must take credit for that. For the rest we just rolled with what we had, even those very short ceilings and very tall (and lovely) male models Alex and Damien, Simon left earlier for work and was not as quite as tall, but equally as lovely. Some of the images will form flash as main assignment for tech. Over all the shoot was excellent experience in co-ordinating and shooting with speed lights indoors.

    I really like the clash of the location with the modern style of masquerade. My favourite has got to be either the sixth from the top or the fifth from the bottom. How long did the shoot take?

      Hi Kenneth, (I love your name). I could of done with a few more hours. We all arrived at around 3.30 in the afternoon and left around 9.30 pm I think. It was quite a bit of co-ordinating, but lots of fun. 3 make-up artists and 1hair dresser. The shoot mainly used 1-2 speedlights in soft box’s, and we ended up with about 110 edited shots for everyone. Thanks for visiting Kenneth, chat soon.

        Why, thank you! Now that’s something I don’t hear all too often. I love Adele too, the name rings gracefully, evoking images of sophistication.

        I’m always amazed at how much time and effort people pour into their photo shoots. It helps me draw a picture of a future shoot of my own, which will hopefully happen somewhere down the road.
        Thanks a lot for sharing that information, Adele! All the best.
