Ashley McCarthy Photoshoot

Ashley McCarthy
On my recent US trip, I collaborated with free-spirited Los Angeles-based actress/model Ashley McCarthy on a fashion photoshoot. With no plans, we scoped out cool scenes around Venice Beach, California, resulting in a very SoCal editorial. Check out the photos from our guerilla photoshoot!

Hotel California Photoshoot

Model: Stefany, MUA: Rachelle Games, Photo: Naomi Rahim

In collaboration with Brazilian-model, Stefany, and LA-based Makeup Artist, Rachelle Games, we created this Lana Del Rey-inspired editorial shoot in Downtown Los Angeles.

Across two locations in the Historic Core of LA (you may recognise the location from 500 Days of Summer), we brought to life a vibe of casual glamour. The wardrobe was styled by myself, using a mix of 60s-inspired fashion and retro hair and make-up by Rachelle. Doesn’t Stefany look like a Hollywood bombshell?

Las Vegas – Glamour Shoot

Stefany (Brazil)

Whilst traveling through the US on a Contiki tour, I met Brazillian model/dancer Stefany and we immediately started planning location shoots on our travels.

This shoot was a particularly fun & crazy one, we had about an hour on The Strip in Las Vegas to do some damage with some gold hot pants. Check out the full photoshoot on my Flickr page.
