Day 1 of Arab Fashion Week in KSA.

Day 1 of Arab Fashion Week in KSA. Was so privileged to have me and my team from YH Studios DXB be  an active part in this wonderful event.  We covered all backstage photography and videography for Arab Fashion Week I am so please that we got some really fantastic shots and footage.

We were over whelmed opportunity to be a part of an historical happening. Arab Fashion Week has put some huge shows on and this did not disappoint. For the first time in Saudi Arabia @arabfashioncouncil was proud to hold   the first ever fashion show in this country full of amazing, beautiful people who cannot do enough to help you and make you feel so welcome.

 

YH Studios DXB Has been involved many times in Arab Fashion Week so was so happy to be apart of this once again.

We were all so overwhelmed by the generosity of time and hospitality that the Arabic people displayed. They welcomed us into their country with open arms.

As for the Fashion Show! To be working with he team from Jena Paul Gaultiere was just incredible. I have admired everything about this guy so to be up close and personal with his amazing catwalk designs was such a privilege.

The models were flown in from all over the world so a good range of faces for the runway.  They were lovely to work with and very professional. We all worked together as a team and this is a major attribute to making a show very successful. We are all there to achieve amazing results for us all.

Behind the scenes is where all the action happens and I just love it. We get some off the cuff shots and  natural video footage which makes the final cuts so authentic.

Jean Paul Gaultiere catwalk was just heaven, the clothes complimented each model and the spiraling video on the tv screen behind was so complimentary, was mind blowing.

Gerrys 60th Birthday party

What a fantastic night celebrating Gerry’s Birthday Bash at Pier Chic .

The food was just amazing with free flowing champagne was what a party is all about! People came from all over the world to share this momentous occasion with these lovely couple and their children.

Please take a look at the photos below and let me know which images you would like and we will email them to you.

It was so lovely to be surrounded by so many different nationalities, partying until the early hours.

Look forward to hearing from you all.

Creative magazine Shoot with Al Khaleej Magazine

We are so pleased to of been involved in  this Creative magazine shoot  with the weekend magazine Al khaleej.
We decided to go with an 80’s theme for the front cover and supply a step by step makeup guide for our creative makeup look.

The Team from The Lipstick Make Up Institute managed the make up and The Team from YH Studios did the style  and the design of our creative magazine shoot cover.
The 80’s theme to spice things up a little and give the readers something different.
The hair was Styled by my good Irish friend, Cyril from Ted Morgans hair salon and with a little help from another good friend,  Jamilla Paul.

Happy Snapper, ready for our creative magazine shoot

Our Cyril is a  stylish guy with a cheeky face.
If I could do a project like this every day I would because its exciting and creative

Everyone pulls together and supports each other.

We actually involved one of our students from The Lipstick Make up institute– Zouha. She was in her final week of The International Platinum Media Make up course and was a great project for her to exit with.

Especially as this was a great attribute to her portfolio that YH Studios made for her.

Make up and photography are just the best combination.

These two Go together like a bird and a feather. Dream Team.

We would not get projects like this if we didn’t have the 2 companies.
We all strive to be on the front cover and finally here we did. Hope you all like the creativity and style of the cover.

We like to inspire our readers so you can achieve your creative look.

Kids Beach Fashion Photoshoot

Its such a pleasure to shoot with these lovely kids. They are just so so cute.

We are asked to do this shoot from a company in India. They found us on the internet and loved our work.

So on this front we were very happy too. I decided to break the shoot in to 2 separate parts. One on The Palm Jumeirah at sunset. The client sent me some photos of a kind of dream state backlit subject so I thought that would be ideal. In fact it was as I caught them perfectly.

We just love working with children. After nearly 29 years from my start of loving photography. I have mastered the key elements of getting the best from my clients. No matter how small they are!

I guide them in a way that they don’t really know that they are being asked. I let them play and capture them at their most natural.

This is really when you get the best shots . Have a look at these photos and tell me what you think? We would love all your input.

These kids are so beautiful and look so good in the clothes. The client was  so very happy with the shots as its shows his clothes off so lovely. In fact its so lovely to see the boys wearing pink.  They are so sweet.

Our sister company The Lipstick make Up Institute pampered the kids. They put lipgloss on them. Gel in the boys hair and make them feel like little film-stars. We had a video made too so they felt really special.  They were so cute. On the video the kids had to shout, ” We love One Friday”. The little one could not say it properly. Was so cute, honestly. Makes one want to get married and have my own!

Have a look at these beautiful pictures.

 


photoshoot for Valentines

Hello everyone

We all need a Valentines day Photoshoot! Its that time of year again where all the ladies and gents become so romantic and show one another just how they much we mean to each other.

You know us humans are strange creatures, we get stuck into routines and every day life takes over and we forget to show each other just how important we are.  We shouldn’t though. Time passes too quickly. Before you know it we are old and time has disappeared.

 

Its good that we have such occasions to give us a little nudge. A nudge in the right direction to bring out the romantic side of us.

 

For those of us lucky enough to have that significant other in their life. Now is the time to spoil them.

Another Amazing Sunday

Hi everyone

Feeling relaxed and chilled after another, “Amazing Sunday” at Nikki Beach. Every week we are there doing the photography and make up.  Its just feels like the most relaxing place in Dubai. Very chilled atmosphere, cool music and of course with winter upon us the weather is amazing!

As you can see by all our pictures everyone just enjoys themselves. They get into the spirit and come to my make up teams to get their Native American Make Up done.

Everyone gets into the spirit of the day that turns into night. Not only is the DJ pumping to he tunes but there is added entertainment from the electronic Violinist. Sometimes, there is the addition of a drummer that beats out and echoes the bass of the tunes from the DJ.

 

We have all the head dresses too so we can take some amazing photos of you. Photography is what we do as a job but its not really. Its a way of life. I know I am privileged to have found this forte in my life. I have carefully selected my staff who have the same passion as me too. As there is no point in doing something that you hate and just to pay the bills. In this vocation, it will show. You cannot disguise passion. You either have it or you don’t.

 

I have been a photographer now from starting at the age of 16 years old at college so really 29years. Still, I awake every day wondering what the day will bring. Each day, each light, each blow of the wind brings something new. Even if I go to the same beach every day using the same backdrop I will never repeat the same picture twice. A picture is taken in the moment. Each shot is an individual portrait.

 

Enjoy the pictures and we will check in again with you next week @ #thelipstickmakeupinstitute which is fast becoming the best make up institute in Dubai and #yhstudiosdxb at #nikkibeachdubai.

Ciao for now!
