Tips for photography assistants
Apart from taking awesome behind the scenes images, my assistant @senrabj is also a talented photographer, she just doesn’t know it yet. She took some backstage images of Chloe our model that I wish I took. Here’s one, the rest on my blog which you can check out in my Instagram profile. Sandjena is also a great problem solver on shoot days, if there’s an issue; she always tries to find a solution. On our last shoot I forgot my reflector at home and she built a makeshift reflector using cardboard, tape and the inside of my softbox.
She is always on time; most times she gets to the location before I do. She is always smiling and in good spirits. She is always thinking, proactive and ready to get stuck in. I also make sure I pay her for invaluable time.
The image was taken by Sandjena as one of the behind the scene from one of our recent client shoots for amazing dress designer Estilo Moda Bridal. Styled by Mrs Jones herself Segun Garuba. Makeup by Tricia D’Costa and Hair by The Joseph Experience and off course the model Chloe Jasmine Whichello. Mr & Mrs Jones are back working with Wedding vendors and clients to showcase their brands with beautiful images and design work.
Workshop alert: The Workshop is being planned and put together for around the first week of November after Lagos Fashion Week. Join the facebook group ‘The Creative Forum’ for updates. Speaking of Workshop, I need an amazing stylist. #love #art #portrait #photography #model #girl #asiko #photooftheday #potd #picoftheday #bestoftheday #instagram #instagramhub #instahub #igdaily #instadaily #igers #instamood #portrait #instaart #talent #inspiration #fairytale #ethereal #bridal #dress

“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
