Photo shoot with Belal Ashraf

I was up at 7am today in order to set out and style a shoot for one of the most sought after up and coming fashion photographers in the Uk, Belal Ashraf.

Although our initial clown concept was put on hold due to unsuitable settings we still went ahead with the shoot. The new concept was very sexy and appealing for women. The model was Shaun, also a personal trainer and our make-up Artist for the shoot was Mildred Padilla.

We shot the shoot in a lavish studio based in the heart of Shoreditch which has rapidly established itself as the 'fashion spot'.

I was running extremely late due to the length of time I spent waiting around to collect the clothes for Shaun.

By the time I arrived everyone was set to go. We went through (with Belal, Fashion photographer) the exact looks we were going for and outfit changes we were gonna make etc. We wanted to create something sexy but not too obvious. Mildred applied soft smokey eyes to bring out Shaun's eyes and covered his body in Glycerine oil.

We got really down and let our creative juices flow, which resulted in jeans and tops being ripped and adjusted.

The shoot was great fun so time just flew by. By the time we knew it, it was 16.00 and we were absolutely starving!! We ended the shoot with some original delicious thin crust pizza's and made it home in the pouring rain but I absolutely loved it!!
