Monday saw a return to photoshoots for me with the lovely Emma Moran (winner of the Miss Belfast City 2010 Competition). Emma had approached me about a month ago wanting to expand her portfolio and gain more experience before competing in the Miss Great Britain competition, which is to be held in December.

When Emma contacted me about the shoot I already had an idea in mind that I felt would suit her perfectly, and that was a shoot that had been carried out by celebrity and fashion photographer Ruven Afanador. His shoot was of Ashley Olsen back in 2007 'Marie Claire'. I sent this idea to Emma and she instantly fell in love with it and gave me the go ahead to start organising and planning the shoot.

The first thing I had to sort was the location I was going to be shooting at. This was a pretty easy task for me as I felt I had already found the perfect location during one of my previous shoots, this was a derelict house and a disused mill in the County Fermanagh countryside.
Once the location was sorted I then set about recruiting people to help me with the photoshoot and every part of it. First off was the makeup artist and once again I was going to call on the assistance of Louise Burrows, who I’ve grown to have a brilliant working relationship with and who’s work I just love. The next person I had to find was a hair stylist, and this has caused me some problem in the past as I usually can’t give enough notice for them to book the time away from the salons. So this time I decided the shoot would be held on a Monday as traditionally hair salons are closed, this seemed to be a big help as I was able to obtain the assistance of Lauren Patterson to do the hair styling for the day. As well as the hair and makeup I would need an assistant to help with reflectors ect. and as with my previous shoot in Fermanagh I would be getting the help of Nigel Healey.

Now that the location, crew and day had been picked all that was left to do was to sort the styling of the shoot. This job was made a lot easier with the help of Sarah Ann @ Lipsy Clothing in Belfast who set aside an afternoon to help me pick items from the Lipsy range that would suit the shoot.

The day of the shoot ran very smoothly with the rain holding off just long enough for us to get the location pictures done. From there we changed the hair and the makeup and then moved into the studio and went for an officey look, with the white shirt and black trousers.

Very nice shots!!!

So with the clothing...was it loaned by Lipsy for the shoot? Did Lipsy receive anything in return (i.e., images)? Just curious how one goes about doing that. Thanks!

Why is this titled "androgyny"? She's feminine in all the pictures.

I also wonder about the title. No doubt about her gender in these pics.

:lol: That's because that is Ashley Olson in 2007. Don't worry I thought the same thing till I read what the OP wrote.

Its amazing the difference you can see from a pro photographers work and one that is not. 80% Post Processing. Most pro photographers if not all at this point hire out Image editors and that's what makes a photo great. Good shots sir PP not quite there though.
