Elle Photography Competition Final Round

The long awaited blog post is finally here. Photographer Freddie Child-Villiers recently entered his final round pictures into the Elle Competition. I was the stylist. Our shoot was set in a Houtbay township under the theme Ubami Basekasi. Ubomi meaning Soul and Basekasi which is Township. The pictures follow a typical day in the life of a girl living in the township. As she goes along her day, she still managers to stay stylish and glamorous. 

This was our final product:

I truly enjoyed working with Freddie because of his perfectionist qualities, creative contribution and all round interest in the shoot. He is truly an aspiring photographer that will do well within this industry. I look forward to collaborating on many more projects in the near future.
