Lady in Red

When asked what looks she wanted this budding young model replied with “something fashion like” for her second look she decided to leave it up to us.

I have said it before and I will say it again, I have the privileged to work with some of the most talented artist in our beautiful area and for this shoot my team consisted of the ever talented Amanda (make up artist) and Kendal  (hair stylist).

For Paige’s shoot I wanted to show 2 sides of her and thought having 2 completely opposite looks would be a lot of fun but keeping both looks with a fashion feel.

Look 1: A sleek natural minimalistic studio session

Look 2: A red theme based on big messy hair and bold makeup and of course lots and lots of red fabric, 6 meters in fact.

About the Model Paige Sundell:

I’m 21 and have been modelling since I was 16, I love that modelling allows me to be someone else for the day I love the transformations and the confidence it give me. At present I am signed with Reeder model management.

I love both my looks but look two was incredible, so much time went into the hair and make up which looked amazing, having material fashioned into a dress was something I have never I have never worked with before so it was a great experience. I really enjoyed myself during the shoot I would have to say that it was one of the best I have done so far, it was a lot of fun.

The thing I love the most about creative shoots is the finished product. There is so much time put into them it and it shows, the end products look awesome. I loved working with Katrina she made me feel very comfortable in front of the camera all of her ideas for the shoot were awesome and creative. I would recommend her to anyone wanting creative images for their portfolio.  She is great to work with.

About the Makeup artist Amanda Larsen Makeup Artistry:

I have only been doing makeup for about 3 years now. I started in Vancouver, Canada and then decided to make the move to Australia I love working with such talented and inspirational people. Also the creativity behind it all, I love seeing the reactions of my clients after a makeover.

I loved doing this shoot. Doing two completely different looks in different locations, one being in studio and the other on location, it was a lot of fun. I love doing creative shoots because you get to step out of your comfort zone a little bit and be a little messy. I love being able to transform someone into a look that tells a story and working with a team that can make that happen.

Katrina is an amazing person and photographer to work with. She has great ideas and when she gets an idea in her head she makes sure to find a way for it to come to life for her to capture it!

About the Hair stylist Kendal Watts:

I have been hairdressing now for 10years now and my favorite part of my job would be the creativity and being able to completely change someone’s look by something simple as a blowdry or to a avant guard fantasy look. This year I plan on entering the Australian hairdresser journal awards (AHJA) I wold love to win one of these awards, so fingers crossed.

I loved the shoot we did there were two completely different looks, the model was great and looked stunning in both. I thought this shoot, it was lots of fun! It was taken in the studio then on location. It was amazing to see the look have such an effect being shot in a deserted quarry. I love creative shoots because it’s fun to step out of the salon and get play and style hair for looks you don’t get to create everyday.

Working with Katrina was great! She is an amazing photographer, fun to work with and really knows how to get amazing shots.

The hair for look 1: For the hair I did a sleeked back low bun. I achieved this by pulling the hair back into a low pony tail then separated the pony tail into two, then with one section I back combed the hair all the way so it made like a padding then I pinned that into shape for the bun with the remaining hair I wrapped that around the padding to create a smooth low bun.
The makeup for look 1: I used very minimal makeup to make the model look natural. I did a bit of contouring to enhance her facial structures.

The hair for look 2: For look two I went for a smoothed out root with tight Afro curl on the ends complete opposite from roots to ends a avant guard look , this was achieved by smoothing out the root putting in a center part then by using the rounded ends of two coat hangers to create a long u shape I then wrapped the hair in a figure 8 around the hangers crimped over it with a GHD straightener to heat the hair around the hanger once cooled it creates a tight zig zag shape that I brushed out to create massive volume on the ends.
The makeup for look 2: The second look was an avant grade look which was really fun to do. I first blockec out the models freckles, including her arms and chest. I then did really heavy contouring in red under her cheekbones and dark smokey eye with red lips to finish the look.
