YSL Vintage Suit photo shoot

by Lee Oliveira on November 2, 2010

Fashion photography for me helps to slow down the things around me. It makes me pause a little and really feel the moment that I am in. I love that feeling of connection with my camera. I want to feel the story that I am just about to shoot and see the results. I’m sure there is much more to learn about photography.  It never stops and I am loving every moment of it.

Here is part  2 of my photo shoot with Sarah Camilleri wearing a gorgeous vintage YSL suit. Such a classic that will never go out of style.

There is something out there still pushing me forward to learn more about fashion. I just know it.. “I belong in Fashion“.

I also made a short “behind the scenes video” that will show you a little more of Sarah and me behind the camera. Please click here or go to Lee TV and you will be able to view it. I know “Lee TV” has been a long time coming. This is the first video and there will be more to come of me out and about with my camera so you can see me in action. Since this video was made I have purchased a HD video camera so the quality will be much better.

I also would like to take the opportunity to thank Sarah Camilleri, Nicola Bain who assisted me with styling and Peter Georgakopoulos (food photographer and blogger). I couldn’t have done this without you all so a big shout out to say thank you.

For those who hasn’t seen the Part 1 of this photo shoot please click here.

I’ve seen the video and I loved it, you were very professional always made sure everything was in place. This suit is amazing, I cannot touch the fabric but I can guess it’s high quality just by looking at this picture.

Everything about this comes together like magic – the wonderful photography of course, the vintage beauty of a YSL suit, the model, the styling…so beautiful.
