Another great shoot with Tinttu – a great client and makers of beautiful Finnish designed and dreamed children’s playwear. See more at their website: tinttu.com!
Artist/Owner of Tinttu, Petronella Grahn.
Visitors at the 2012 Kids Fair in Helsinki could see my commercial photography blown up quite large. In these images: the tinttu.com booth.
And some of the handouts using my commercial work:
This was a very enjoyable marathon 5 hour shoot north of Helsinki. The models are wearing authentic antique period clothing and embodied the spirit of the clothing perfectly. Make up and hair were done by the very talented Lotta Eloranta and I had the pleasure of styling the models. This was a collaborative shoot with fellow Finnish photographer Marko Saari.
Spring is finally here in Finland and I am booking fast. As such, I’m having to find time between shooting and processing and only have two images to show for now. But I look forward to going through and processing the rest of the outfits!
I was pleased to work with the lovely model Heidi for a vintage clothing shoot.
The first session she modeled a 1974 Bernard Freres shantung silk couture dress in the Chinoisiere style. She also modeled a 1964 Myer Kahan mod-style dinner suit.
As I get acclimated back to Finnish time, I can’t wait to go through all the images from the shoots in Australia. Here are some more favorites as I continue to go through my cards:
She was a pleasure to work with – exuberant and able to really bring emotion and zeal to her images. Here are a few of my favorites from this model.
The objective of Ainsley’s shoot was to create very commercial images (as opposed to the more editorial high fashion look). Editorial shots tend to be about abstracts and funky angles while commercial images are often friendly, inviting, and meant to draw a viewer into the emotion displayed. My objective as the photographer that day was to catch the model’s personal magic and use it to complement the location – the fall of snow, out of focus car lights, shiny wet surfaces, warm yellow glows, and baroque architecture. For me, the location is always one of the subjects – either recognizable or completely out of focus and turned into colorful balls of bright light. And after only a few frames of shooting Ainsley, I knew I would focus on her flowing movements and dance-inspired grace.
Two images from the session! David was a great model – he brought a lot to the shoot and was full of interesting ideas for stunning shots. It’s a pleasure to shoot when the photographer and model work collaboratively.
