Portraits of a Supermodel

Two weeks ago I was lucky enough to work with iconic 90’s supermodel Heather Stewart Whyte.

Heather has not only graced the covers of Vogue, Elle and Marie Claire and shot with legendary photographers such as Helmut Newton, Mario Testino, Dominique Issermann and Peter Lindberg she has also been the face of Victoria Secrets, Dior and Gucci whilst walking the catwalk for the likes of Gianni Versace. To say I was intimidated was somewhat of an understatement:) Here is some of her work from the 90’s:

Not having the provisions of Helmut Newton or Mario Testino I had to make do with shooting on location at my studio with the help of a few accessories from various car boot sales and strategically placed lighting.

Here is what me and my team came up with:
