I had the opportunity to shoot the Banana Republic Fall collection for Ok Magazine at The Address Hotel, Dubai Marina in Dubai. A lovely location with wonderful staff always ready to help with whatever you need.
Our model was the lovely and energetic Bronx from Bareface with the longest, slim legs I have ever seen! A true professional in every sense of the word working her magic instantly as the cameras started to click! Jenny Haward, stylist for OK was responsible for the lovely clothes and styling and as always a pleasure to work with.
Antonia Malt from Bareface, a very gifted hair & makeup artist gave Bronx the last hair & makeup touches need to complete the Banana Republic look & feel and Evelyn who is always there as my righthand woman!
There are certain brands which are very unique, BR been no different, clean, fresh American with a touch of glam! We had 5 looks to complete which also meant moving around in different locations! This means most of the gear needs be on hand where we go! I opted for less gear (for me anyway which included my trusted speedlights and my Profoto Acute 600. I enjoy been challenged with different lighting situations to see what the final result will bring but keeping within the time constraints!
At the end of the day we were very happy with the final result. It was amazing to work with such a great group of girls!
