Here is a peek into a fashion shoot I did between the dunes in Dubai. We were a very large crew for this one which I normally don’t have but it was all very useful and everyone had a task to perform 🙂
My daughter was with us on this photo shoot as you can see on the behind the scene photo below, taken by one of my assistans, Amin Makhlouf. So it was useful to have one assistant to be in charge of her to make sure she was not up to too much mischief 🙂 I then had two assistants helping me out when I was photographing, capturing behind the scene photographs and helping me out with wardrobe throwing fabric up in the air etc while the model were infront of the camera. I then had one person in charge of all the accessories to the different outfits which was many, all curtesy from Aldo Shoes in Dubai My lovely Hair and Make-up artist, Sofia Roos was of course there the whole time as well changing make up and doing retouching and making sure the models were wearing the right outfit we had lined up for them. I had two models with me as well to speed up the shooting and the outfit changes a bit, model Lonna was from Wilhemina Model Agency Dubai and Chelsea was from Bareface Dubai
Super thanks to everyone that was there helping out!! I had a brilliant time and we captured some awesome photographs together.
If you are wondering how I get my assistants to my photo shoots, it all varies, for this particular photo shoot two of my assistants found me on Instagram and contacted me through their DM (Direct Message) it was two Swedish girls in Dubai on holiday and they then got a bit of a different holiday experience 🙂 I am also mentoring photographers so one of my assistans were one that I am mentoring at the moment. So if you would like to be part of a one of my photo shoots let me know I might be able to make it happen. (no promises but I can see what I can do) Being part of a photo shoot is alway great fun and super helpful for you if you are interested in photography and want to see more and experience what a photo shoot is all about.
