Smoke & Mirrors – Magazine Collaboration

This project came about as I had worked with the amazing Abigail ( Model) on a few projects in the past and we wanted to create something slightly different and psychedelic for both our portfolios.

With the project being for our portfolios, we also wanted the images to show both of our skills and versatility.

Not only did Abigial style herself that day, with a little help from me, but as you can see in the images, she is an amazing model.

We managed to create 4 looks altogether on the day.

As well as the photography, I did Abigail’s hair and makeup for this project.

When it came to post production, I wanted to edit the image to fit the smoke and mirrors theme but to also have a completely different finish for each image.

After editing the images, we decided we loved them so much we wanted to share them as much as possible so decided to submit them into a magazine.

We were thrilled when Model Citizen Magazine pick them up for their print, online publication and social media platforms.

So not only did we manage to achieve what we set out to which was to create amazing images for our portfolio but we also managed to get them published in a magazine. ( July 2017)

On the day of the shoot we had stepped outside to capture some shots as well, this was to have a variation for our social media content, basically we posted this image separately to the others, which made it seem like another shoot, therefore getting more curated contents published on social media.   With careful planning and a few changes to your scene and/or wardrobe, you too can achieve getting a variety of personally branded images for your from just one shoot.
