So anyway I was with my pal Maerie (or Mary but I think the other name is way cooler...LOL) when she went to a photoshoot like two weeks ago with a scouting ageny called 2DIE4 and I hepled her stlye her portfolio. It was all impromptu in a way because I wasn't sure if I was going to make it. So she decided on her clothes and jewelery I just styled them the best way I could.
Here is one pic of her in a boyfriend blazer...
So in this picture I had a boyfriend blazer to work with. I wanted to work with the blazer alone but it was too short to go with the idea I was going for which was something like this latest issue of Glamour Magazine in which Fergie was featured on the cover.
so I decided accessorizing was the way to go, I used 3 colorful belts that i looped like shown here on another post I did, 2 pearl white crystal faced rings and a pair of multicolored earrings.
The point was also to make the accessories contrast with the background and the blazer since they were of a darker hue.
The shoot director Ben Kargechu is amazing! I love the way he directs and makes a model feel comfortable, he even doesn't lose his cool when the model doesn't get what he is saying. It's important not to lose your cool as the shoot director for this will only frustrate your model even more thus the shoot will flop.
The photographer is Ben Kiruthi you can check out his blog here. He is an amazing talent and he sure does know how to work the camera.Sadly this is the only pic I have of her at the moment more to come...I will post others later on....
P.S that's Ben Kargechu in the background doing his hands effect thing...I thought that was interesting, don't you?
