One thing I’ll never understand about the UK is why people with ginger hair get picked on. I think any shade of red is gorgeous. I don’t remember everyone in my class at school (all that long time ago), but I remember Janine Thomas, because she had the most beautiful red hair.
So, it is no surprise that I love photographing redheads. The vibrant hair colour contrasting with usually pale skin and green or blue eyes automatically makes the photo vibrant regardless of location or background. I love contrast in my imagery, whether it is textures, a beautiful woman in an industrial background, colours or feeling. Contrast highlights the difference and this makes the image interesting.
I put out a model call on Facebook for redheads and Olivia responded. She had no modelling experience, but was open to direction and keen to work with me to create beautiful imagery. Nailed it! To top it all off, we had a great time and I can’t wait for our next shoot. Maybe when it is a little less freezing though.
Contact me to book your model portfolio shoot in Hastings or at many other great locations in the South East – Sussex, Kent, Surrey and London.
