Goldwell 2009

June 8, 2009

Berlin is on my mind this morning.

Berlin is where this photo currently is.


Why? It’s being judged in the semifinals of Goldwells Trendzoom color challenge. All this is thanks to Amanda Pinhorn. She is the Artistic Director of Icons Salon in St. John’s, NL. Amanda contacted me this winter to do a series of hair images for her. This image is the first to be judged!

The beautiful model and make up stylist is Oxana. What a great time it was to work with a true beauty and natural model. My regular photo sessions consist a lot of photo coaching. Photo coaching is a term coined by a great photographer called Me Ra Koh. It is the parts of a photo session where you help the subjects become comfortable and natural in front of your camera. I believe it to be the key to great photography. With Oxana I barely had to breathe a word. She was a true natural as well as a talented make up artist.

The entire idea was Amanda’s. She simply hired me to take the photo. The concept, hair, model and wardrobe were all hers and hers alone! Excellent job Amanda and good luck with the rest of the competition!

Just in case you need more assurance of Amanda’s greatness, she is also my stylist and is currently responsible for my platinum and pink hair! If you want her to style you you’ll have to wait a minimum of two weeks, but it’s worth it!
