Here are some more images of actress and model Jessica Elizabeth Swanson for you to enjoy. Here we were looking to create a sun-kissed, retro pinup fashion vibe.
Hair was by Doug Hobbs at Hobbs Hairdressing, Bristol, and we used the garden at the back of his salon for much of the shoot. A brightly-painted wall full of bright oranges and blues, giving a great Mediterranean feel to the images. While it was a bright sunny day, the enclosed garden gave plenty of open shade and it was day to find great angles where Jess would be in soft, flattering light. As a contrast we also shot some images in the sun, and I had the model turn towards the light so the harsher sun would wrap around her face, rather than drag across it causing distracting shadows.
Makeup work was done by Jasmine King, a student at City of bristol college who was able to wonders with our vintage brief.
