Some day I was seeking for new collaborations on Facebook and Claire was there at the right time: she responded to my call. Great! From there, we quickly got on together.
Claire is an experienced model in Lille, she met many photographers with different styles but she got interested into my classic and natural-looking portraiture services.
Besides of being a really fun person, what encouraged me to work with Claire is her look:
THE look. She has an insane look of one of a kind...
After a few days instant messaging, we decided to meet up in the pretty park of the city hall of Croix. We didn't shoot right away, I think a very talkative hour happened between the moment we met and the moment we actually started shooting.
Very easy to laugh with, we had many laughters and it was sometimes hard to focus back into the shooting.
I really have something with the hair, I enjoy when there are everywhere, half hiding the face and bringing a new vision of the model.
Because this shooting was in a park in bright daylight and because Claire had red-tinted shaded hair, I went with the black and white to avoid color clashing.
Thank you Claire for this first shooting, this was a lot of fun to get to know you and a little bird told me we will collaborate together very soon!
In the meantime, here's her Instagram and Facebook if you wish to see more of Claire.
