Warm welcome Back Stephanie and Phil, congrats on your CHRISTMAS EDITION FESTIVE SEASON feature with us for MOLLMAGSA December 2021 how does it feel to be back once again?
MODEL STEPHANIE – It feels amazing to be back, and I can’t thank everyone at MOLLMAGSA enough for the support.
PHOTOGRAPHER PHIL FROM MAX GLAMOUR – I’m thrilled that Stephanie and I were able to put the shoot together. I always enjoy working with you, Arne, and this whole shoot was fun to prepare for MOLLMAG SOUTH AFRICA!
Give us a glimpse in how this shoot all got planned and what was that SPECIAL MOMENT that stood out for you from this photoshoot please share with us Stephanie & Phil?
STEPHANIE FROM A MODEL’S VIEW – The special moment was the unknown. We both went in blind unsure what we’re gonna capture but we put our minds together.
“And created something beautiful at the end of the day.”
PHIL FROM A PHOTOGRAPHER’S VIEW – I was driving through Canada’s prettiest town, Niagara on the Lake. The fall flowers were in bloom and the summer flowers still had a bloom on.
“I knew that Stephanie had just gotten a beautiful red frock and I started to see the potential pictures form.”
PHOTO SHOOT location wise what made this location so special for you as a MODEL & PHOTOGRAPHER, in other words tell us what makes this location stand out from all the rest, share with us your thoughts?
STEPHANIE FROM A MODEL’S VIEW – What makes this place stand out is its old school vibe and energy. Plus, the décor was just beautiful every place had its own unique touch.
PHIL FROM A PHOTOGRAPHER’S VIEW – First Stephanie was in great form with perfect costume and makeup. Then the streets had beautiful leading lines and great color schemes making every way you look a possible shot.
Phil this one is for you, when it comes to picking the perfect spot / location for a given project or photo shoot, as a photographer what are the 5 GOLDEN RULES to look for or do when shooting on location?
- Look for stories. Stories are interpreted from the images and the best stories are made in the eye of the beholder.
- Leading lines help emphasize the center of the story.
- Collaboration between the model and photographer is important. When someone gets and idea, film is free. It is worth taking the shot and seeing what develops.
- Watch the background. Sometimes people and cars and horses in the background help with the story and sometimes they distract. It is worth waiting for the right background.
- While the equipment doesn’t matter as much, the lenses can give depth to the image. I used a 50mm for some shots and a 24-105mm for others.
Let’s get that FESTIVE SEASON FEELING glowing, what is your favorite Christmas memory you have from WAY back THEN in the days when you both were younger or toddlers, please share with us your favorite childhood CHRISTMAS MEMORY #CHRISTMASMEMORIESBACKTHEN?
MODEL STEPHANIE – My favorite memory is when my parents made a hockey rink in our backyard and I learned how to skate. That year I got my first pair of skates!
PHOTOGRAPHER PHIL FROM MAX GLAMOUR – Waiting for bedtime at my grandparent’s place, wondering if every twinkling light outside might be Rudolph’s nose… Really!
