A couple of months back I was testing with two London Plus Sized Agency Models. We were shooting some Plus Size beachwear fashion editorial shots on a very merky day in Sussex. I arrived at Rachaels (Makeup Artist) house in Portsmouth to find Ava in Makeup and Annie looking at outfits for the shoot. They had two large suitcases of clothing between them and it looked like they had ordered more or less everything ASOS had to offer for this shoot. It was lovely to finally meet them as we had been talking via facebook and twitter for some time. These two ladies are often seen on adverts and bits of Television, so keep an eye out for them.
Once Rachael had finished the makeup, we headed off to Sussex to the beach. We arrived to find it was a less than delightful day as far as the weather was concerned, although I think the conditions actually made the images better. They allowed it have a more fashiony feel rather than the standard beachwear shots.
I wanted the shots to have a real editorial feel and so I went for a mixture of shots on their own and together. I particularly love the first shot below, there is a real quality to it. We went through a number of outfits and locations to achieve the overall look. Enough of me prattling on, check out my favourite of the images.
