Many months ago I got the chance to work with Brett Harkness on one of his bridal training courses. During these courses Brett requires a make-up artist to create the look for the model throughout the day. In a quick conversation he said… ‘how about France in October?’ Well before I knew it October was nearly here and I was searching around for suitable looks and styling to create for his course in France.
The course in France is held over 3 days for photographers who want the chance to learn some new techniques in the photography world. This had a fashion led element to it with some beauty and a bridal shot as well.
My task was to collect all the clothes and accessories to create the look for two days in France.
Excitement ahead as I had a rough idea what I wanted to create but had to wait till I arrived in France. Deep discussions were held regarding what look we would create for each day. Over the two days we had created about 10 looks for the photographers to play with on three different models all from France.
I can say I am so proud to see some of the final images created and must credit the whole team who I got the chance to work alongside with.
