Luxury Handbag Photoshoot Behind The Scenes

This is a luxury handbag photoshoot we did a few months ago with a model named Taylor Mccaroll who is an international model and works all around the world right now.
The shoot was styled by Vanessa @pricelessvices with her contact details listed below. I have worked with Vanessa lots of times and she does wonderful work.

The location was all shot in studio using a white cove as the backdrop and using Broncolor lighting and modifiers.

The main modifier on the shoot was the Broncolor Para 133 then I did use a small octabox to add some fill when it was needed. I wanted to create quite a lot of shadow on floor of the cove and also on the model at times so I used the Para in a harder light setting to help make that happen. Taylor has a lot of dance experience so she moves and flows really well making it a lot easier to create the shapes I was envisioning in my mind.
Dena was in charge of hair and makeup with her instagram linked below. She works a lot of varied work including movies and fashion so I recommend her if you need and artist.

Then myself on the lighting, photography and retouching which was all taken care of in Capture One and Photoshop.

I wanted to say a big thank you to @luxedujour for supplying the luxury handbag s which included some beautiful pieces from Dior and Chane for the shoot and to Maison Simons in Calgary for supplying the clothing.
