I am proud to post about this editorial. Not only because the images are absolutely stunning… but because its a testament for my life showing that the saying “what you reap is what you sow” is not just a stale cliche!
A few weeks back, I announced i was doing a test shoot. I had a tonne of clothes still draped around my flat living room, so me and my Partner in crime Matt decided to create some magic. I knew what was missing for my portfolio so I whisked together a few inspiration shots and we were ready to go! Back to my announcement – I announced that I would be going Live on Instagram during that test shoot, so that I can show my supporters what I was actually doing on set and what the vibe can be like sometimes. Not many people showed up, but those who did were really supportive and grateful!
The finished images were absolutely stunning! So Instead of just pushing it out on social media, we decided to submit it to a magazine! Walah – Thanks so much Institute Magazine for taking it!
But you see… it doesn’t stop there. This editorial – no more than two days later may I add. Was picked up by an international Magazine. Who a week or so later flew me and Matt out to style a few models for their magazine. Now I am still waiting for Pt. 2, but WOW!
I have said this before, I have a lot of things going on and I make a consistent choice to carry on giving. It takes the focus of myself when I am able to put my experiences and knowledge out there to help others. This simple shoot has given me more than I had ever expected! Thank God I decided to do this shoot right?
Anyway, I’ll leave you to admire the images up-close and personal… x
