Fashion Assisting - Photoshoot 1

During the summer I had a fabulous opportunity to assist Lauraine Bailey a Fashion Stylist on a few photoshoots she had planned. This turned out to be a great opportunity as I was introduced to a great Make Up Artist on the first shoot I assisted.

Working with Lauraine for the first time showed me how hard it is to be a fashion stylist and all the backstage work that goes into creating an outfit for each look. I remember this day very clearly as it was a very hot/sweaty day and we all had to prep in a very small room that just about fitted the model, the make up artist, Lauraine and myself. What made it even worse was the fact that despite the heat I was steaming all the creases out of the garments which added more heat to the room.

This was my first exposure into a photoshoot and I can say that I learnt alot on the day especially paying attention to detail and still managed to have a fab time working with everyone. (Please check out their websites below)

Here is a few pic from the shoot:
