Fashion Photo Shoot with Model Elika
These are images from my first fashion photo shoot with Elika.
We started planning our fashion photo shoot around the general concept of icons of San Francisco. Of course, I started looking for locations with the biggest icon of San Francisco–the Golden Gate Bridge.
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 photo shoot.
I calculated the position of the sun at various times, and returned home to generate the creative brief for the fashion photo shoot. 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.
