Working with artistic people is always a pleasure. Whether actors, painters or singers, I find they have a stronger presence of character, and our job becomes to capture it accurately. This lovely couple are opera singers and I adore their character, artistic, timeless, and classic beauty and, of course, opera singer’s poise.
Here is my recent fashion photography series of beauty shots. In fashion industry beauty shot is similar to portrait of a person, usually cropped no lower than a bust line that focuses of facial features of the person. Makeup and hair industry uses mainly beauty shots in their advertising campaigns. I love beauty shots as the character energy is isolated to face only, and I think it’s quite powerful.

We loved shooting with this beautiful young woman. The spirit of gentle young lady is soft yet very powerful. Genuine beauty, sparkle in the eyes and charm are felt in every image, and as part of our ‘Little Black Book’ album will be captured and enjoyed forever.
Integrating motifs, textures, and colors lifted from ancient history, mythology, abstract art, and Nature’s elements, visionary Toronto jewelry designer Anat Kaplan hand-sculpts stunning, unlike-anything-else adornments for those who share her love of delicate details.
Have a look at our latest advertising shoot with beautiful Nelly from Elmer Olsen.
You are beautiful
Not only because of the brownness of your eyes
Or the shape of your body
Not only because of the fullness of your lips
Or the curl of your eye lashes
You are beautiful because You want to be
You are beautiful because God made you that way
You are beautiful because in my eyes
THERE IS NO ONE MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN YOU
