With months of hard work, I can’t be more excited to share with you my first body painting series – “Evolution”. And I am proud to say that thanks to the spectacular team I worked with, three images from the series were selected and published in Vatra Magazine.
This series would not have been possible without the photographic talent of Mike Robinson or the amazing modelling ability of the gorgeous Naomi Campbell. Mike captured so many stunning shots of Naomi I just want to print them all out and frame them on my wall!
They both went above and beyond with this series and I could not be more grateful for all the hard work and effort that they put into shooting this series. Through icy cold water, wind and heat, they bore the brunt of it all, including putting up with some of my crazy pose and shooting ideas and waiting patiently until I finally finished working on the makeup and body painting. Thank you so much guys, I really appreciate everything you’ve done and all the time that you’ve put into this shoot.
Just so you all know - Naomi is like a chameleon. I don’t know how she does it, but she has quite a knack for looking different in almost every single shot. Now that’s talent! And if she’s not busy morphing, she’ll crack you up laughing for sure! Loved working with you Naomi – Thank you so much for braving the weather for us and for the fun and humour you brought to the set. You were absolutely brilliant!
And Mike, well Mike is like an eagle – patiently and quietly waiting for his prey…until BANG! The shoot’s done already. And so are the beautifully selected and processed images. And so is the magazine submission. Bang, Bang, BANG! All done. You really can’t get any better than that. You are GOLD Mike. You really are. Thank you so much for all your hard work and thanks for putting up with my pitifully unlicensed ass….(sadly I still can’t drive…and yes I tried, but poo I failed…lets just not go there). Mike, thank you so much for everything and for all your patience throughout the whole process. You’ve been absolutely amazing!
And without further ado, I present to you the Evolution…..
