Aside from the styling, I also drew the backgrounds for the shoot. I love collaborating with super creative and passionate people, it makes my job that much more fun.
The photographer is Andrea Stenson of Stenson Photography (http://www.stensonphotography.com) aka Boss Lady!
Model – Lora of Elmer Olsen (http://www.elmerolsenmodels.com)
Styling – Lauren Partington
MUA/Hair – Karly Jade
Below are the shots and one of Boss Lady in her element. Enjoy!
I can breathe a sigh of relief, third year is over.
This week I started working at Stenson Photography, ran by the lovely and most talented Andrea Stenson. I am her stylist intern for the summer.
Andrea shoots a variety of subjects but her true passion is fashion photography. Check out her websitehttp://www.stensonphotography.com
Third year is a selfish year. It only allows you to work on the group film and nothing else! Unfair, but when I do find spare time (procrastinating?) I’m sketching. There’s a huge stack of loose paper on my desk with sketches I’d like to post but cannot find the time. I’m putting work off by updating….
Two WIP’s that will get finished when school wraps up in two weeks. I have a week off before I start my internship so good grief, I will get some finished work up here if it kills me.
Another Janelle Monáe sketch. The ArchAndriod album has become a favourite of mine.
Edith Head’s costume designs for Audrey Hepburn are stunning and very inspiring, so I sketched from some of her work. I can’t remember what film the outfit is from, possibly ‘Sabrina.’
Normally I don’t post work-in-progress or unfinished work but it’s a new year and I’d like to update my blog more than once a month. This is in the rough stages and I want to finish it. It just started as a sketch, not intending for it to be anything more than that. Unfortunately, the photo was taken on my phone :\
Janelle Monáe is one very talented, up-and-coming musician. Enjoy.
A spontaneous edit -
I decided to include some of my Royal Winter Fair sketches from first semester since this post is related to school work.
“I belong to another generation….You sit…and discuss your sports and your young ladies….” / October 2010
I adore everything from the 1920′s. Love the way F Scott Fitzgerald describes Daisy in 'The Great Gatsby'. The fashion during the roaring twenties is very inspiring and I’m always sketching ladies of the time. This rough sketch is from my 6″x6″ sketchbook. Enjoy.
After researching and looking through loads of Rene Gruau’s work, it definitely inspired me to sketch! I was sitting in an early lecture Monday morning with the lights off and started drawing. I sketched this from memory, heavily influenced by a painting of Gruau’s. I cannot begin to explain how lovely his work is. What a talented man he was! Google him! Enjoy.
Finally got my scanner hooked up so now I can post my traditional work. Below are some sketches I’ve done over the summer holiday and recently. Most drawings are based off of photographs (I love to ‘push’ these drawings), and the others are from my head. I like to work loose, hoping to convey more movement and fluidity in my work. A cleaned up drawing is nice some of the time, but a rough sketch always reads better to me C: That’s definitely from the animation side in me.
Unfortunately, I haven’t had a lot of time for more fashion sketches because of school but I do tend to sketch quite a bit in class.
The drawings on the manila-type paper are in a 6″x6″ sketchbook and the rest are from an 11″x17″ sketchbook. I’m trying to work larger but the small sketchbook is ideal for class. I mostly just use a red pencil, but some have graphite and marker over top. Oh, and the occasional pen sketch.
Oh, and the last drawing is of Hiccup from ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ C:
