Fortunate to do a photoshoot with rising star, model and actress Charli Gartrell yesterday. On the morning of the shoot we were expecting sunshine, but instead we got a dark and dramatic sky. So we used the sky to our advantage, using a portable Visico Studio light with a beauty dish (the only modifier I trust in the Wellington wind!) held by my assistant to pop a bit of light on Charli whilst I under-exposed the sky to bring out the drama.
Charli is set to debut Sunday night as “Olivia’s best friend” on the docudrama “Doubt: The Scott Watson Story” : a dramatization of the tragic Ben Hope/Olivia Smart disappearances that haunted the nation for years. Watch it if you can.
