Geisha Photo Shoot | Monica Wong

Geisha Photo Shoot | Monica Wong

The Geisha Photo Shoot with Monica Wong was taken the same day of  Maya and Monica fashion  photo shoot.

The baseline theme for this studio photo shoot was about a disillusioned Geisha who can communicate hers feelings by the eyes  and hers look. Monica was simply fantastic in front of the camera, it was a pleasure to work with her and she totally got into the mood for the photo shoot.

The lighting used was quite simple, two flashes at the front, one as key light and one as fill light, one at the back as back light and one of the background.

I would like to thanks Mai for the amazing make-up and hairstyle she made on Monica, she really made a difference to give to the model a fantastic look.

In the gallery below there are few of the pictures taken that day.

Geisha Photo Shoot | Maya Murofushi

Maya Murofushi Geisha Photo Shoot

Geisha Photo Shoot with Maya Murofushi was taken the same day as Maya and Monica fashion photo shoot. The idea was to make a more editorial photo shoot, transforming the two fantastic model into Geisha and to give them a specific mood.

In the case of Maya, we wanted to give her a kind of “bad” geisha look and attitude and I have to say, she was amazing in front of the camera, look amazing and acted amazing.

The lighting I used for this photo shoot was quite simple, 2 flashes at the front, one as key light and one as fill light, one flash at the back of the model to provide a back light and an other flash for the background. The ratio of these flashes was sometimes changed to give to the image a more dramatic or more natural look.

I would like to thank Mai for the fantastic make-up and hairstyle she did on Maya, she really made this photo-shoot looks the way we wanted.

In the gallery below there are some of the Maya Geisha pictures, Monica pictures will follow soon.

Some time ago a took a fashion photo shoot in a London photography studio with the two fantastic Asian international  models Maya and Monica.

The theme of the photo shoot was very simple, so it was the background and flash lighting used,  i positioned the two big key light soft boxes at the side of each models, an other flash at the back to give a little fill light and on flash on the white background.

Maya and Monica are really fantastic models and it was a pleasure to work with them, it’s very easy to direct them and they really look stunning in all the pictures, also thanks to the amazing Make-up and hairstyle made by Mai.

London Makeover Studio Photo Shoot ¦ Maya Murofushi

Maya Murofushi London Makeover Photoshoot

A while ago I had the honour to work with the international super model and actress Maya Murofushi, winner of the Miss World Supermodel Pageant in 2010.

As photographer, I started the makeover photo shoot with Maya in a London studio and we wanted to make the style of the pictures something between fashion/editorial and glamour photography, and we decided to use red as main colour. We wanted to keep the photo shoot simple, but still very striking looking.

While Mai was taking care of the make-up and hairstyle, I was setting up the studio lighting. I have chosen a red background lighted up by a flash, other 2 flashes were used as backlights and on both of them there was a red gel, then a soft box was used as front light, moved to the left of the model allowing to create some shadows in the scene.

I was very impressed by the make-up and hairstyle made by Mai Style, she totally gave the right look to Maya.

When we started the photo shoot we tried few different solutions and shortly I took the pictures we wanted, we were very happy about the final results. Maya is a fantastic model, it is very easy to work with her, she is very professional and always give the 100% in every single poses during the studio photo session.

In the gallery below there are few of the many  pictures taken during the first part of Maya Murofushi studio photo shoot, more are going to be added soon.
