Live from our 1920s/Chicago shoot

Something a bit different today – we have 5 models, 5 makeup artists, 5 hair stylists, a cast of assistants and Michael Bellis behind the camera at a 1920s style shoot. I’ll be updating you throughout the day as we go from PASM studio to the location.

10.20 am - All models are in hair and makeup, getting ready for the first headshots beginning in about 10 minutes from now.

11.00 am – Sydney’s just done her headshots – Elektra’s up now, Sophie and Charlene are almost ready, and Alessandro is getting oiled up.

11.30 am - just about through the headshots. Charlene’s up now, with just Alessandro to go. Sydney and Elektra are already in their 1920s outfits and ready for the next stage of the shoot.

12 noon - Finally, one or two lighting and makeup adjustments later, it’s Alessandro’s turn.

1.30 pm – A slight wardrobe malfunction but one size 42 white wing-collared shirt later and Alessandro can finally put his shirt on. In the meantime, Elektra looks stunning.
