Photo Project #1

Look 1 / Skate Boys

My good friend Chelsea and I recently decided to get our creative juices flowing and plan, prep and shoot our own photo project. Chelsea would be the model, I would direct, photograph, do make-up and we decided to be co-producers and stylists. We got together about a week ago to brain storm locations, source clothes and generally share inspiration and ideas. We then met up on Wednesday and had a styling and wardrobe session, putting together potential looks and generally playing dress up and pretending we were at fashion week. We also that evening finalised our location, deciding on using a local skate park as it went hand in hand with the urban look of the outfit we had put together. 

We decided to go quite simple with the make-up. I applied a nice matte foundation, I did a thick cat eye with gel liner, bronzer and highlighter for colour and a nice healthy glow then a slick of nude lipgloss. An almost identical look to my Pixie Lott Simple Make-up Look I actually used the same products. Chelsea's hair is in an ombre style, she just did a lived in bed head look as the hair was being mostly covered by a beenie anyway.

The location couldn't have been more perfect and we managed to get some stunning photos of Chelsea. The day started off a bit shaky as we were both running late, the weather was horrible and when we arrived at the skate park there was a few boy practising who we didn't want to disturb. Luckily for us the boys were more than happy to cooperate with us and even lent us a prop (I wonder if you can guess what haha) and also made a special appearance showing off some very impressive BMX skills. Thanks so much Nick you made this shoot for us and you look amazing on your bike! I am going to share with you guys the best of the group bellow! I hope you enjoy these photos and let me know what you all think in the comments bellow.
