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
