Models, MUAs, hairstylists, wardrobe stylists and photographers all need to stay creative and up to date on trends in the industry. Test shoots are the ideal way for an entire team of creatives and talent to work together to get what they need; whether its to update a portfolio, build experience or the opportunity to try new gear and techniques without wasting a client's time or money. Test shoots enable an entire team to collaborate and create images that are mutually beneficial to all involved.
In a recent test shoot, I had the opportunity to work with a fresh, new model face on the Vancouver fashion scene. Sophia is a stunningly beautiful young woman (imagine Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner rolled into one tall, willowy package!) whose passions include volleyball, academics and being a model. Shot on location in New Westminster, this collaborative test session included the following talents:
- MUA / Hair: Lyanna Gibert
- Stylist: Sarah D'Arcey
