Eric Piris for Happy Schnapper Pt1 – Mustard

All the way back in July I set about a number of styling projects and the grand finale for the month was a shoot with the ever charismatic Eric Piris from Red Photography.  Early on a Sunday morning my living room was transformed into a serious production line of makeup artistry, hair sculpturing and 3 Amazonian goddesses.  My husband quickly retreated to safer ground as did my poor hungover housemate!

As I used to be in the modelling game I have had the pleasure of knowing Eric for some time however this was the first time we’d really worked on a serious project together.  Eric works in almost a manic way.  His mind is going a million miles an hour and the camera, models, lighting are just trying to keep up.  Every now and then he would look at the LCD on the back of his camera and give a giggle which I found to mean that he was pleased with himself!  The results of the shoot truly speak for themselves and was a real way to end a crazy month with a bang.

The brief I provided the team was “retro office wear with a high fashion edge”…  I’m pretty sure that line does not make much sense.  This did not deter the team and under the skilled hands of Amanda Michelle Makeup Artist and hair stylist Chloe Emilyrose Mason from Blaq Hair and Beauty, my models were transported back to the 60’s with cat-like eyeliner and Bridget Bardot curls.

Also a BIG thank you to my models Ingrid Elise, Kate Cooper and Rachelle Dawson.  All three girls lead busy lives yet still found the time to create these wonderful images all in sub 10 degree weather!  CHAMPIONS!
