Building a Brand

Last week I had the opportunity to work with a new brand. Actually the brand itself is not new “per se” but they are certainly still at the growth stage and it is so exciting to be part of the process. The brand owner was very keen to get some new pictures of her bikinis to update her website and of course the instagram and social accounts with her new collection.

The process of doing a photo shoot for a brand began weeks before the actual shoot. We put out an open call to find the face of the 2016 Buzios Bikinis campaign.  After looking through dozens of profiles and hundreds of photos together myself and the owner agreed on a model that would best represent the brand.

One of the things that I learned in this process was how important it is to work with Professionals. The model and the Make Up Artist (MUA) were both excellent to work with and very professional and I would work with either of them again any day.

Since this was a brand building photoshoot the pressure was on to make sure that the bikinis were the star of the day. I had to ensuring that I was getting the best shots of the bikinis, how they actually fit, I had to ensure that the patterns were clear and I got a few angles.

I felt privileged that I was also able to add the “Turban” to a few of the shots. I am from the North of Brazil and the “Turban” is a common accessory that women use to accent their look. I was able to include a few simple turbans into this photo shoot which compliment the bikinis and also add a touch of the Northeast of Brazil.

Luckily we were blessed with beautiful day. Even though it was supposed to rain we were able to get lots of great photos without getting wet. Everyone went home happy and most of all I was able to provide for my client.

I am still working through all of the photos that we got and they look good.  Here are a few -Sneak Peak- shots to see all of the photos and to take a look at the great new collection for Buzios Bikinis check out this link.
