Photoshoot with Jodi | Darrin Henry

It pays to have good neighbours when you are turning up the music on a week night for a photoshoot; as it happens we’re lucky to have some of the coolest around.

So, with a full batch of MP3s loaded onto the player we dragged the furniture out of the way and fired up our studio lights as another of St Helena’s stunners, Jodi Wade, stepped onto our backdrop for the first time.

Beauty In Black and White

Although it was our first shoot together, I had tried to tempt Jodi over a year ago to model. Finally we were getting it done and despite some initial nerves, she didn’t disappoint.

With first-time models I am always conscious I need to move through the looks quickly; Sharon is quick to recognise when I’m getting carried away and reminds me the girls need to get home! With this in mind we picked out five combinations from the outfits Jodi brought along and then Sharon set about her work with the make-up brushes.

My photography output preference has nearly always (nearly always) been colour. Even though I usually edit grayscale versions of the chosen images as well, these are rarely posted or published.

But with this particular shoot I’ve decided to use the black and white files only as they work really well, I think, with Jodi’s chiselled features and that lovely skin tone that Saint girls have.

It’s hard to say which is my favourite look. Jodi has a fun, dazzling smile which comes very naturally but she also carries the sultry look very easily. I do know we had a great time and I’m looking forward to doing it again!

Here’s a selection of the work we produced on a rainy night in Alarm Forest with the music turned up.

  2. What an absolutely stunning model, if all the UK Overseas Territories use to pick a model Jodi would be crowned the Queen of them all. I think the Air Excess Office and our island Councillors should invite your Blog Models to the Opening of St Helena’s Airport to stand alongside His Royal Highness Prince Edward at the airport. As always wonderful photography.

  3. I love it. You continue to inspire me. I feel lucky to of started photography here on St Helena where I can learn and gain inspiration from you. I think Jodi is a stunning model and you have both brought the very best out of the shoot. I love it. When I get back to the UK I need a make up artist, a wardrobe and some more gear!!!

    • Thanks Paul for the kind feedback. Jodi makes our job easy though. Yes, never underestimate the role of a good make-up artist on a shoot, makes all the difference. Cheers 🙂
