A couple of weeks ago, I was lucky to get the opportunity with Miss Hampshire, Grace Levy. She is also known for being on ITV's game show Take Me Out. I got talking to Grace on Twitter when she had been competing for Miss England. She is also an avid Michael Jackson fan, to the point where her talent for the Miss England content was that she dances like Michael Jackson.
This gave me an idea for a shoot, so after a few chats with her we set up a studio shoot to be styled like the late great MJ. I had the ubber talented Roxie Morgan on hand to do makeup and help with they styling. After a bit of time with her, Grace was ready to shoot, so with MJ blasting out of my laptop, she got to hitting some classic MJ poses. Grace can really dance like him, although she plays it down a bit, so the shots really worked, check out some of the best shots from the shoot:
After finished shooting as MJ, I wanted to get some casual shots of Grace as she is a beautiful girl and it seemed rude not to! I also wanted her to have some casual shots to use for promotional use and any other contests she may enter. I didn't really change the setup very much for this, I just toned it down a little where the lights were concerned.
Grace has come up with and idea of doing something looking retro maybe 50's or 60's in style. So she had arrived prepared with a couple of outfits for this, with the help of Roxie and some serious back combing, she was soon looking like something straight out of the sixties. I didn't want to use the white background again so I change it up and went for something much brighter. Check out the resulting images:
I really enjoyed shooting with Grace Levy aka Miss Hampshire 2012, she was great fun and that really came through in the images. Hopefully you may see more of her on my blog in the future.
