Models One test shoot 1998

I have no idea what her name is, I did not write it down, which in most cases I do. I do know that Philippe and Cynthia Balligan did the hair and make-up. Shot in Finsbury Park, scanned in and post prod. by me. Just playin’

Kay

Kay was with Marcella Studio, a model agency in Milano. I shot this in 1990 in my hotel room, a dive in the centre of Milano called the pensione Dante. You shared rooms with total strangers, the fat family a few doors down ended up using all the hot water, shared bathroom of course. The Moroccan co-owner used to spy through someone’s room into the shower room. I kid you not! Models, hair and make-up crew and photographers frequented through this place like mad. The pensione Dante is long gone and that is rightly so.

I have been scanning in a lot and will be scanning for yonks to come.

Gillian Wong – The Beauty Truth – 2nd Generation Magazine

I took this in 1998 in Finsbury Park as part of a spread called The Beauty Truth for 2nd Generation Magazine, a magazine with a lot of potential but sadly folded after 3 years. I think it happened before The Millennium.

Taken with Ektachrome 200 (EPD) then processed in C41 (for those that don’t know: it’s putting a positive film in a negative processor so instead of getting a slide transparency you get a negative instead).  Fab contrast and colour ratio no other slide film comes out that well after cross processing.

I still have a few rolls in my freezer…….waiting for the right project……

Hair: Guy Pranzili

Make-up: Cynthia Balligan

Model: Gillian Wong / Select Models
