it's early here (sydney) and everyone is still sleeping ... time to kill before the day gets going.

hit me up and I'll tell you how I would shoot you - styling, location, makeup, lighting - and why

so far only PM's from this topic - here's one I've just replied to, to help get the ball rolling:

for you I would choose location lingerie, side lighting with lots of shadows, colour because you have great skin tones, but muted tones, something like this:

most of your shots are studio so I would take you outdoors. sky/sea/skin, black and white, because I think it would suit you and because I love shooting that way smile

something like these patrick demarchelier shots:

You have a gorgeous face for beauty, and if I shot a lot of beauty I would go there, but I tend to be more attracted to styles with a bit more drama so I would go for over the top decadent sexy, something like this from Parisotto

I see you're mostly shooting nudes... so I'd see no reason to break the trend smile

but I would try to give you something different to what you currently have, maybe a classic high key shot

http://www.soblacktie.com/media/00/00/73941079.jpg

or something with a bit more of an edge
