I love fashion photography. It has been a dream of mine to shoot for magazines such as BAZAAR. Benjamin Kanarek did just that and had the opportunity to shoot Model and DJ, Alexandra Richards who is the daughter of Rolling Stones Keith Richards. From the looks of it, Benjamin went for a very simple look. Looks to me like a single Light source from overhead and a white wall with harsh shadows. Thats a bit different from most fashion shoots. Usually photographers go for soft shadows and use key lights, rim lights and fill lights. So seeing a high fashion shoot done with a simple technique is quite refreshing.
Here's a little bit of what Benjamin said on his blog about the shoot:
"Model, DJ, Fine Artist and it Girl Alexandra Richards, Daughter of Rolling Stones Keith Richards and Super Model Patti Hansen, celebrates the Holiday Season in “The Party”. She poses in front of Benjamin Kanarek’s camera for Harper’s BAZAAR en Español, December 2012 issue.
Alexandra styled by Vanessa Naudin shows her glitter and glam side with Lanvin, Roberto Cavalli, Christian Dior, Chanel, Burberry Prorsum, Moschino, Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci, Bottega Veneta, Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Prada looks. Dazzling, sparkly and festive highlight this holiday season. You can be sure that when you show up at the party, you will be the proverbial enchantress. So have a Ball and enjoy the 2012 festivities like Alexandra."
