My recent shoot “Summer Hues” was recently published in L’Officiel Magazine Middle East. The weather was wonderful albeit very windy with a clear blue sky. The clothes definitely show the wonderful clothes of summer and we were privilege to have brands like Roberto Cavalli and Versace to name but a few! Makeup involved a bright blue eyeshadow that was highlighted in the hair with blue acrylic paint. Hair was a combo of crimped and curls to withstand the winds.
I had a great team working on this shoot. The talented Katie Cousins (hair and makeup), the sweet Sleiman Dayaa (Styling), the lovely Visna who was our model for the day and my assistants Evelyn and Werner Muller.
Lighting was mainly natural light with a large silver sunbounce which proved tricky holding up in the wind. There were times we were nearly taken into the water trying to hold it!
Thanks guys for a great shoot! Photography / Art Direction – Belinda Muller Styling – Sleiman Dayaa Hair & Makeup – Katie Cousins Model – Visna ( Bareface) Assistants – Evelyn Garcia/ Werner Muller

After our meeting with our client, HAVAS PR ME, Chalhoub Group, we decide to shoot at my home. The weather was still very pleasant and we had the bonus of having a huge Banyan tree for shade. I was privilege to have a great team who worked with me on this shoot. Our lovely art director for L’Officiel Magazine, Samar Sadik, Ieva Nemciauskaite, who was responsible for hair, the Bourjois team who was responsible for makeup, the talented Sleiman Dayaa responsible for the styling and the adorable Eva from Bareface Models.
Here are some behind the scenes photos from the shoot.
