If photos are going to be published, you can't share them with anyone? Are all images restricted like this?

Sorry!

I'd take you into the studio and shoot with lots of shadows, like these from Solve Sundsbo

Oh wow, you weren't kidding when you said 'shots like this one'!

In the shot you look great, and so does she. The light on your face is nice; overall it's a great shot.

The only thing when you're using shots for inspiration, if you have pulled a really iconic campaign like the Burberry one above, and if you then go for the exact same pose, then you're inviting a very direct comparison with the original. I prefer to use reference images as a jumping off point, and then play with the idea on set, to make it my own and distance it from the original.

So I looked back a few pages, and last time I think I saw you in a Christina Hendricks kind of vibe.

I'd stick with the curvy/sexy theme

Thanks! It's just a bit of early morning fun here in Sydney, while I wake up with my coffee... smile

So, for you Scarlett: I think we might try some of these concepts from one of my photography heroes, Robert Voltaire

Thanks for the comments! The photoshoot happened a couple of days before you told me about the idea, such a coincidence!
I agree with what you say, but as a model I do what I'm told and the photographer wanted that pose. Its an editorial for magazine submission. I will keep an eye on this topic because the ideas you suggest are very good! Cheers
