Last November 14th was marked by a general strike that spread across many european countries, regarding the efects of the economic crisis and the repercussions it had on the european people. Here are some selected shots i took in the demonstration in Lisbon, Portugal.
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.
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.
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.
