60’s Photo Shoot

by Lee Oliveira on October 30, 2010

I have always been excited by things that involve fashion. I know this is going to sound like a bit of a cliché but as a child I knew I wanted to work in some area of fashion when I grew up. When I reflect back, I always had big ideas and I wanted those ideas to be of influence to myself and to others as an adult.

I have now finally found this through my love of photography and it has become a part of my daily routine. Some of you already know this who regularly read my posts or follow me on facebook and twitter. I can’t really see myself doing anything else at this point in time but who knows with life and its many different paths. I am just reacting… I react to my passion, desire, drive and I crave to learn more and more about fashion photography. So, this is who I am at this point.

As you know, most of my photographs focus on street style which is truly what I love but I wanted to experiment with my photography a little further. I was chatting with a close friend of mine, Peter from the renowned food blog, souvlaki for the soul and we wanted to do some sort of collaboration and thats how these photographs came to fruition.

We used my apartment as a studio and my very close and dear friend Sarah Camilleri who is also a professional model.

With these first 2 shots, I got inspiration from the Stepford housewives as I knew Peter could tie this in somehow to his food blog.

I also designed the top and skirt based on the theme but I really have no sewing skills so I had my good friend Nicola help me out.

I hope you like my photographs and get some sort of inspiration from them.

There is a second part of this photo shoot with Sarah wearing a vintage YSL suit that I will bring to you in my next post. I just wanted to keep you in suspense a little ….. hehe
