Celina Yang was the winner of the Top Model prize I give out at the Northland Bernina Fashion Awards. The winner receives a complimentary personal branding shoot. This is an event I have photographed for the last 5 years and I love being a part of this community event.
The photoshoot with Celina started in the studio with Teresa from ‘Waterfalls and Waves” meeting us there to do hair and make-up. After checking out Celina’s outfits Teresa had a good idea of what she was going to do and also after a joke between us about crimping the hair, she went ahead and added some in with the curls. GHD crimpers could be my next purchase!
Once hair and make-up were complete we started with some in-studio headshots and portraits. This gave me an opportunity to use a ring light for the first time and I have to say I really like it! – check out the circle catchlights in her eyes.
From here we went out on location. Somehow it all worked out and we found a building that had colour tones similar to Celina’s second outfit. It was pretty bright and sunny so we headed to location number three, a stunning tree lined driveway where my dreams of photographing Autumn leaves and a mustard coloured outfit finally came true in the same photoshoot.
These portfolio shoots are suitable for artists and business owners. Get in touch if you want the complete personal branding experience.
