4th February 2015
I was approached by a student in Bradford College on the F.E photography course. She had photographed me before in the studio workshop I had modelled in previously. She requested that I model for her for her final project – a Fashion photo shoot, that she had to make a front page magazine cover and spread from. I accepted this opportunity as I find modelling handy for me as a photographer, being on the other side of the camera and having that experience so I can understand it from my subjects point of view. Bailey (the student) gave me specific requests with regards to hair and make up (which I did myself) and asked for my sizes, then bought some clothes accordingly.
Throughout the shoot I had to follow instruction but also think on my feet with regards to poses, angles and lighting. Modelling I feel also gives me more of an understanding of flattering angles and lighting for models – by putting myself in their shoes! The shoot was a real success and Bailey was very happy with her images.
