REPOST: Creative Photo Shoot – Hat Series

UPDATE: This is a creative photo shoot I worked on about 3 years ago with Photographer Vince Hemingson…I am going through some old posts and photos for inspiration, and I loved some of the different looks we created here.

I met Vince Hemingson through Langara College in Vancouver….Vince has always a number of ideas for creative photo shoots and it is a pleasure to work with him. He has great laugh and big personality. And Alena Riane ain’t bad either! This was in early April so I have been remis in taking so long to blog about it….but these are some awesome pics, and I am very proud of the makeup looks I did.

One of my favourite makeup looks from the shoot…



Photo Shoot at Langara College – ‘channeling Helmut Newton’…

….was the description that the photographers gave me when I showed up to do hair and makeup for this shoot!

In case you do not know his work….

Helmut Newton, born Helmut Neustädter (October 31, 1920, Berlin, Germany – January 23, 2004, West Hollywood, California, USA) was a German-Australian photographer. He was a “prolific, widely imitated fashion photographer whose provocative, erotically charged black-and-white photos were a mainstay of Vogue and other publications”

There are so many things that I could write about this shoot, such as my nervous giggle, Mr. World Canada (!) and the 500K Rolls Royce! However, I really want the photos to be the focus, since the lighting, models and lighting were top notch. Alena Riane was a fabulous model, loved working with her, she is a professional with a extensive portfolio if you are looking for a model. And also to model Aurora Chan.

These photos were taken by Morgan Brant
