Photographer: Shavonne Wong/Zhiffy Photography Model: Diandra Forrest Hair: Wade Lee Makeup: Tatiana Ward Assistant: Marcus Teo
Love this shoot with the stunning Diandra Forrest, and love the fact that it got me another cover on Tinsel Tokyo Magazine! It was one of those shoots where everything just came together without much planning. If I remember correctly, I think I was about a month into my stay in NYC when Wade gave me a call during dinner time. I still haven't done a shoot with him yet but we've seen each other's works and we've already had a shoot scheduled in a few weeks time. Anyway, in the call he mentioned that he had secured a shoot with Diandra Forrest and would love for me to be the photographer. The concept, location, and clothing will be all arranged on his end. Of which I said sure! There was really no reason for me to say no to that.
As it turns out, Wade had an assistant whose husband has a yatch that we could shoot on. He also got the ridiculously talented make up artist Tatiana Ward on board with the shoot. And with the beautiful Diandra Forrest, it was a pretty much set. Weather on shoot day was fantastic, gorgeous lighting and all. All images were shot with natural light and with an uncooperative reflector that kept wanting to fly off into the sea. I think it was a good exercise on reflexes and arm strength for Marcus that day. Hope you like the images!
