On receiving the 2 denim jackets to give Black Penny Designs a bit of a statement image, the brief was – ‘do what you do’… which is the best brief ever. So with a bit of Olympic inspiration, I photographed Zara Watson on a vaulting horse. I used one light (Bowens 1500 esprit) with the PIXAPRO umbrella Octa Softbox with 2 diffusers.
Black Penny are Lisa Mullen and talented artist Mick Brown so creating a look for artists with an open brief is always a challenge. Thankfully they loved the shots giving them the praise of having a Westwood feel to them. Zara Watson is a model I have worked with for quite a while and have now created some very strong images together. She understands me as a director and she is always brilliant to work with. I would always recommend her to anyone who wants to work with such a versatile and personable model. The tiara was made by my good friend Bene http://www.benedictelassartessejones.com/ who now makes beautiful rings and more for men and women.
