Well yesterday I had a situation to work with two models, a makeup who has worked with L’oreal and a Fashion Stylist with experience in the fashion industry, and included with that was a reliable photographers assistant. What started out as litte rough in the morning as it can be sometimes working as a photographer turned to something golden and with a silver lining in the afternoon.
I have worked with Sally Arnott now for close on 12 months and we always seem to lift the level of our work each and every time that we meet, and we really lifted it this time. And I have to say with the addition of Adam Browner the scene was set for some creativity to flow. The theme of the shoot was “A Silent Love Affair” the entwining of two souls in the language of love as descibed, “When love is spoken between two souls, it has no sound, but two connect even with others around” and as the story unfolded so did there passion in front of the camera.
I felt priveledged to have so much expertise at hand, Jacinta’s makeup was flawless and she was very enthused and excited to work with such people and a gem to be around, I definitly recommend her and will definitly use for future shoots. Sila, my stylist who I can only compare to Martin Short from Father of the bride is insane to work with, he see’s the images I see which I think is so unique and there for I can spend more time with the camera and making sure that I am looking at my lighting while my stylist creates what I already seen. An a final thank you goes to Raymond, the photographers assistant who was able to tag along with me for the whole day and spent the morning in a Rolls Royce Phantam, not a bad start of the day, was there to fetch lens and reflectors, hold cameras and make sure I didnt forget my bag.

All in all, I owe a debt of gratitude to all those involved and to the venue “Moored” on Docklands who basically allowed us to gate crash there venue, without you such a shoot would not be possible, I think we are all still realling in what we created. More can be seen in the Gallery
So until the next photographic adventure, thats all for now – Brett Robson: Freelance Media Photographer.
