Photoshoot with Model Elika
These are images from my first photoshoot with Elika.
It began working around a general concept of icons of San Francisco. While scouting the Presidio for a spot with the Golden Gate Bridge off in the distance, I saw these amazing doors. Surrounded by art-deco architecture, I had a vision for the photoshoot.
I calculated the position of the sun at various times, and returned home to put out the creative brief. Elika responded to the creative brief almost immediately. She is a fairly experienced model, has an excellent awareness of posing, and had ideas for the wardrobe and makeup to match the location.
When we put all the ingredients together, the photoshoot was a total success. Here are some of my favorite images.
