It’s been a while since I’ve
wanted to shoot something summery and sultry to add a few sun-kissed
photographs to my portfolio. The first step wasn’t difficult – it had to be an outdoor
pool. Therefore, we turned to Hotel Quintessence in Mont-Tremblant for
breathtaking views and luxury facilities.
I wanted to be able
to harmoniously combine both water and sky in the photographs. Luckily, on the
day of the photo shoot, the weather was playing in our favor by giving us
brightness and heat as well as an abundance of clouds which added contrast and
created a lavish ambience in the photos.
swimwear didn’t take up much time. We all know and love the sleek, elegant and
stylish designs from the Canadian swimwear line Marina Marina.
My trusted team of
professionals did a fantastic job. Everything was top-notch, the day was
incredibly enjoyable and we were all pleased with the photo shoot.
make-up artist Annie Bessette greatly succeeded with the challenge she was
presented with. The model’s skin had to have a luscious, bronze tone,
reflecting the heated atmosphere of the day. The precise make-up for every look
was executed perfectly. Additionally,
each look was embellished with designer shoes and jewellery provided by Holt
Renfrew. Wearing Jimmy Choo’s for black look and Christian Louboutin's for color look, the color swimsuit was
accessorized with sunglasses by Gucci and ring with earrings by Kenneth G.
Lane. As for the black swimsuit, the sunglasses were by Tom Ford and necklace
with earring by Marni.
model Lamyae (MONTAGE Agency) was excellent! The swimsuits looked stunning on
her lustrous tanned figure. Lamyae’s atypical beauty completely charmed me. Her
plump lips and prominent cheekbones showcased pure finesse.
slightly enhance the natural light, I used one studio light Profoto with a
stripbox and grid. The camera was Nikon D700 with lenses Nikkor 80-200mm f 2:8
and 24-70mm f 2:8, light disk.
high end retouching beautifully finalized this successful project.
thanks to Varvara Kameneva for her assistance and to
everyone who devoted their time and effort!
As of now, I can say that my team is working on a
multitude of new projects of which we will tell later on!
