I recently had the opportunity to shoot for the July/August issue of Harper’s Bazaar Kazakhstan with the amazing Veronika Vilim (Wilhelmina Models).
I always sit on my editorial shoot ideas and wait for the perfect opportunity – when the chance arrives and it seems like a good time to plan I go full steam ahead in trying to bring that concept to life. Like many artists, I have folders and folders of ideas and mood boards that are just waiting to happen and I always wait for the right time (fashion season) to shoot them.
For this shoot the casting was extremely important because the clothes were strong – the powerful shapes and metallics needed a confident subject in front of the lens. A subject that also understands their own movement and clothing.
Big thank you to an amazing team who were supportive of my vision and not afraid to encourage me to work outside of my comfort zone!
