Fashion-Glam in the Studio

Fashion-Glam in the Studio with LuLu, Erin and Mercer_

What a fantastic late night we had in the studio. The idea behind this shoot was to create stunning glamour with a touch of high fashion thrown in = Fashion-Glam.

Models Erin and Lulu did an amazing job and I think pulled off the poses with ease. Not only did she jump in front of my camera but as always the talented Erin from Erin Strong Hair Artistry preformed her magic. Lulu an emerging model was an absolute pleasure to work with and both Erin and Lulu worked together as though they were one.

I asked Erin about her stunning hairstyling – “I created a spiral curl with straightened ends to give volume, contrast and consistency much like a mane of a lion showing Lu Lu in her raw state, her bare naked chest with her hair laying over her body – the wild animal within. For myself being photographed against Lu Lu I felt I needed to create the opposite image of a woman with sleek tied-up hair that in female culture is seen to reflect and denote the sexually repressed or uptight”
