A Session with Emilie

This week I had the opportunity to work with Emilie Valentine, a beautiful young French model. Although new to the industry, she has already spent time modelling on both sides of the Channel working photo shoots in Paris and now Oxford – all while studying for a degree in Media Communications. She even speaks a bit of Japanese.

A Session with Emilie

I’ve recently been inspired by some gorgeous black and white portraits, in particular some shots by Dutch fashion photographers Lamsweerde & Matin. I wanted to shoot my own but with a twist.  I love the simplicity of monochrome, especially when there’s fairly low contrast, with rich silvery tones. These are made even more perfect by serene gazes into the lens. In short, the pic above is one of that I’m incredibly proud of.

Below are a selection of images we took at the fantastic Studio Blanco.
