Guerrilla Girl – by Nathaniel Goldberg

I came across this great editorial, in Models.com site. I just love this kind of visual and photographic out of place  influences! 🙂

“Considering the complex (and often antagonistic) relationship between the fashion industry and rights issues like human trafficking and fair labor, the idea of a luxury freedom fighter is a bit of an oxymoron. Not that you can’t fight for equality while wearing Celine pumps, but real life rarely offers such opportunities.

Of course that has never stopped fashion from, editorializing the fantasy of guerilla girls dressed in the season’s latest trends. V Spain serves up an intriguing take on the theme with a slick story shot by Nathaniel Goldberg and featuring a series of chic pieces from Margiela, Ralph Lauren and of course Celine all chosen by Gillian Wilkins. The images present a vision of well dressed rebellion and are dedicated to “all the courageous women who defend their ideals. They are masters of their own destiny, their voices songs that celebrate the beauty of freedom.”

Beautiful words, but how do you feel about the pictures? Sporting perfectly tilted berets and wildly hair coiffed by Shon, Edita looks like exactly what she is – a stunning top model playing dress up in revolutionary drag. In some pics it works, especially when she gives that powerful gaze, but even with a dagger in hand or holding down a semi-automatic, she still seems wildly out of place. Perhaps that is intentional – we can’t help but get some Patty Hearst, gun wielding socialite vibes in a couple shots. Let us know what you’re getting from this story in the comments.” – Models.com

MUFE makeup courses

Make Up Forever’s professional make up courses continue to be a big success in Portugal, thanks to its representative Expansão York, with classes both in Lisbon and Oporto.

This time i present you with the great work from Ana Soares, one of the students that finished her course last month. Here are some shots i took.

For this photos i used three Profoto Pro Heads attached to 2 Profoto Pro-B3 Air blocks. 2 of the heads, with regular Zoom reflectors were used for the background and the other head was used as keylight with a white Beauty Dish.

On each side of the model i had a white reflector board and, from beneath, a Photoflex Silver reflector disc.

As usual i used my good old Canon EOS 7D with a Canon EF 24-70mm  f/2.8 L USM.

Make Up Forever Photoshoot

At the end of last month i shot the first of several make up shoots in collaboration with the international brand Make Up Forever.

I headed to one of their portuguese offices in Oporto and photographed the work of one of their students, Márcia Almeida. Using a two Profoto heads attached to a Profoto Pro-7s. One with a white beauty dish, in front of the model, and another one just to light the background, as i wanted a nice clean white background.

Lady of the manor

A new editorial i shot for BLESS magazine just got out. Named “Lady of the manor” it depicts a young woman living in a house full of wonders and random nonsense.

It was shot in an old house, fully decorated in a vintage style, in the typical neighborhood of Graça, in Lisbon. We wanted to give a vintage meets fashion meets Alice in wonderland feel to it and also disrupt the “innocent little girl” look commonly used in that kind of imaginary, so we introduced Gabriela, a model using her hair shaved, some tattoos and a piercing.All the editorial was shot with one Profoto head with a 5 foot octa attached to a Profoto Pro7-s to obtain a soft light on the model.
Many thanks to Photographicas for lending the lighting equipment.

New Photoshoot

Last week Carolina Sanches, soon to be mother, posed for my camera for a series of great portraits to keep memories from her pregnancy. We wanted to avoid the same old kind of photos pregnant women use to get, so i proposed to do a series of photographs like in a fashion editorial, in a different and fun way. We  headed to Southwest Production‘s studio, in LisbonThis time i used a Elinchrom and Visatec lighting. With a big Elinchrom octa as keylight, and two Visatec with umbrellas to light up the background a bit.

“Show me the night” – for BLESS

Today i post another fashion editorial i photographed for BLESS magazine. Despite the fact that it was shot in broad daylight i wanted to give the feeling that the model went for a night out. I only used a single Profoto head with a zoom reflector, attached to a Profoto Pro 7-s.

We shot in the typical  Alfama district, one of the oldest in Lisbon and did a couple of shots in a heavy metal bar called Transmission, in Cais do Sodré district.

I would like to give many thanks to Transmission’s management for all the patience of having us shooting there even when there was allready a huge crowd of people outside that wanted to enter, grab a beer and dance and a special thanks to Kirsten from Photographicas for lending the lighting equipment.
