Head Shot

Confession: I've been working as a model these past couple months without having a card to take to castings! Pretty bad form on my part, I have been promising Priscillas that I would auto-portrait myself but its just something I haven't prioritised in my manic schedule - until now. Not even sure if the agency will like these shots, if they don't I'll simply shoot a few more images with a little more styling, perhaps I'll get a make-up artist... but really I'd prefer not too, I see enough of my own face. I prefer to spend my time achieving beautiful images of fresh faces. Really I just get such a buzz, which I why I think I continually improve and feel I have so much more to give. You have to love what you do and I truly love fashion photography, plus I'm a huge 'photographer fan'. Inez & Vinoodh, Camilla Akrans, Knoepfel and Indlekofer, Sorrenti, Lindbergh, Greg Kadel, Laurie Bartley, Bruce Weber, Nicole Bentley, Justin Smith, Georges Antoni, Benny Horne, Paola Kudacki, Sebastian Faena, Sharif Hamza, Solve Sundsbo, Willy Vanderperre.... I could go on. 

So these two shots - they aren't actually the final result of my work but photoshop is a wonderful/deceptive thing and while I was playing with effects I decided I really enjoyed this artistic look. It reminds me of the movie Ever After, the 'Da Vinci' portrait of Drew Barrymore. 
Something different anyway.

These images are gorgeous. The second one sings to me!

I'm sure you already know a thousand but if you need a MUA in Sydney I know a wonderful girl!

Photoshop is a wonderful application. I agree, these photos really suit the artistic feel. How could anyone not like them?!

That's kind of a response to my previous comment.

They are beautiful Zanita!! I especially love the second one!

In Paris one year for the show castings the bookers took their favourite head shot of us girls and illustrated on it, so it was half photo and half drawing -it definitely looked super cool.

Would be fun seeing one of these images on your set card! x
