International Excellence Magazine Fashion Shoot at Ashberg House

Here is International Excellence's latest fashion shoot, photographed at the £28 million Ashberg House in Chelsea. The house was entirely designed by Morpheus Design and you can read more about this extra ordinary project in the links below.

The stylist on the shoot is Miranda Holder, she is renowned for both her fashion editorial skills and particularly for her personal styling for high net worth clients.

We had decided on a strong colour feature to contrast with the luxury muted colours that Ashberg House used in its colour palette. Taking advantage of the warm tones that pervaded the house to bring out the colours and shapes in the clothes.

This shoot featured Lucy from Profile Models and she was a delight to work with. She not only moves well, is easy to work with, works hard to get the shots right and looks great photographed in a wide variety of poses.

Some of the sets were fairly low light and I wanted to keep a natural daylight look, so I was shooting at a 1/4 of a second for some of them, which meant that Lucy had to be pretty still in between each different pose. 

Miranda's assistant Katie was on the ball, organising the clothes for each shot and flying around like lightning to make sure each outfit was ready for each different location.

Bethany ensured that the hair styles brought out the best in the models and structured the ideal, relaxed, luxury indoor look that matched the fashion and decor.

The make up artist Kate made sure the girls looked amazing and co ordinated the colours with the clothes and muted background to achieve just the right balance, mixing luxury and fashion perfectly.

A big thanks to all the team from International Excellence Magazine.
