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.

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!

Behind The Scenes of A family Beach Shoot

Family Beach Shoots are the most amazing shoots to do.

I love them. In fact, I love everything to do with photography.

The photographers main aim is to capture the love and trust between family members is  that the photographer can claim his or hers for sure.

Capturing the relaxed bond, love and emotion as well as fun on film for families to cherish forever is why I do this job. Nearly 28 years I have dedicated my life to photography.  Still I am moved and commuted and eager to get the best out of every shoot. I try to do nothing half hearted.

As I tell my staff all the time if they are not chatty enough or not operating 1000% percent.

It does not matter if you are tired or thinking about a relationship etc anything, your personal problems are just that. Anyone who comes to us must be made to feel the best we can make them feel. They have entrusted us with on of the most valuable possessions they might ever have as photos are everything!

They will allow us to look into their relationships, family relationships, they will show their emotions to us who are complete strangers, (Sometimes) !.  So we need to make them feel relaxed from the moment they enter the studio.

Making people feel good can only be good for the soul and reflects back on you as a person and makes you feel good. Adopt this policy in life and you will not go far wrong.

Hope you enjoy the onset shots taken from my phone by my photographer, “Jack” so we could share with you guys a sneaky preview into our beach shoots.

Everyone should have one at least once in their lifetime.

The Lipstick make up team at Mori Sushi

What a wonderful event at Mori Sushimaking all the ladies look like Daruma Dolls eyes. Using Creative water based make up my team of Make Up artists from The Lipstick Make Up Institute  the effects are amazing! What do you think? Great location in Downtown Dubai. 13165838_10154174476410789_2969522255021587379_n 13179283_10154174262770789_347042618329332072_n 13139378_10154174262595789_1018303765613302399_n

How to get the best from your Phone Apps. Tip 3

 

Get the best from the App Perfect 365 tip 3 on day number 3 of my secrets to achieving that flawless  look.

Lips

This is a wonderful too. The Deepen smile tool is great for enlarging our smile.

Whiten Teeth tool is fabulous if the light has not quite managed to hit them and make them dazzle so this tool will! But once again, don’t over do it. If your teeth are normally extremely white then its ok but if they are just a shade lighter then just gently use this tool.

The Lipstick tool is great to add a bit of colour to make your smile appear brighter and also the teeth as red lipstick will always make the teeth appear whiter. The only problem with this tool is that the mouth has to be kind of centre to the picture as it pre set to the app so if your face is  not centred and you add the Lipstick tool you might end up with a moth shaped lipstick on your cheek!

Contouring tool 

I love this tool, If you have just been shot at the wrong angle and your face looks slightly plump then you can slim it down with the slim face tool.

You can lift your cheeks too but don’t do it too much as we will look silly if our cheek are right under our eyes and they are not usually!

My favourite tool in the contouring is Enhance The Nose Tool. It casts a shadow which can slim the nose and cover bumps and lumps we don’t want to see. I have a small bone on the left side of my nose which is prominent when I turn to the side and I dislike it so this tool disguises it. Tool, I love you!!!!!!The sample is a pictures taken in the morning last November when my nephews and nieces were visiting.

Here are a few examples of where these tools are perfect.

Example one now look at example 2 the skin looks so fresh and smooth without being over done! You can see that I don’t look so tired. I love this tool!! I also opened my eyes a little bit as they seem smaller when you smile.

How to get the best from your Phone Apps. Tip 2

Tip Number 2 on how to get the best from your APPS.

We are still on Perfect 365.

This app is just so incredibly flattering its very addictive, as I said yesterday its just like having a make up artist in your phone. Now, I find it difficult to NOT use it! But i just have that kind of personality, VAIN Ha

On this app I use the tools for , skin, eyes,  lips and contouring tools.

Today I am going to talk about the skin and Eyes tools and tomorrow the Lips and Contouring tools.

Skin tool

I us the Brighten Tool and the  soften skin tool, it removes blemishes. I find this better than the blemish tool. The only problem is that people just over do it and I cannot stress enough that, Less is More! I see images on Facebook all the time and people look absolutely flawless and like they have just been airbrushed to the MAX! Its too much guys. Gently does it. We are Not Plastic people!

Eyes tool

I use the Circle tool, which is fabulous is you are looking slightly tired and its difficult to overdo this tool as it doesn’t really allow you too.

The Brighten tool which brightens the whites of the eyes but be very careful as its so easy to overdo.

Finally the Enlarge tool. Sometimes we squint on images especially if we have a big smile on our faces so this will make our eyes appear very small so this tool is perfect but once again do not overdo it as themes are a major feature on our faces and if you alter too much then it will not look like you, you will just look weird!

Here are a few examples of GENTLE Editing, nothing too extreme.

The one of me with the sunglasses on is a PERFECT example of very

gentle editing but can see that it kind of gives you that polished look.

SECRET number 5: How to pose correctly to always look your BEST!

5.  Don’t follow the group! Be an individual !!
The key to a getting noticed and being an individual is  NOT all doing the same pose. Not only is just boring  and stiff but its not fun.We are all individuals with our own charcters and personalities so I always try and bring this out in a photo.

Creating memories is what photography is all about and we want to remember when we look back at an image that was taken wherever and when it was. We can immediately identify our friends characters by the way they shine in a photo. Some of us are more serious, some laugh more, some do the same pose. Its amazing. I love it.  We are all so different yet need each other in many different ways.

We go through life and meet so many people that the only way to record a moment apart from storing it in our memories tightly locked away in our hearts and brains is to take pictures. We all love it, more and more every day.

I was told a joke the other day that just summed this statement up:

JOKE:

A couple were in a fancy restaurant and the starters came, decorated and presented beautifully. The couple started to eat and then the waiter came over and asked if something was wrong? The couple rep[lied, “no, why?” and the waiter relied that,” I thought something was wrong as you did not photograph your food!”

We Photograph EVERYTHING, EVERYWHERE ha !!

Be yourself, always and forever. That what our friends love about

us and will always remember us the way we are.

SECRET number 3: How to pose correctly to always look your BEST!

3.  Twist your body and position your arms

Ah, the old red carpet trick: Position your body 45 degrees and put the arm closest to the camera on your hip. Then plant one foot slightly in front of the other, point your toe to the camera and place your weight on your back leg. This gives the body a slight angle and angles without you even knowing it creates interest and appeal. 

A Simile

Think about it in easy terms. A pole that just goes from floor to ceiling looks ok but a pole that has twists and turns will always make you look longer with interest. 

Ever wonder why every celebrity poses with her camera-facing arm on her hip? It’s because that particular move ensures that her upper arm isn’t smooshed against her body making it look flattened and fat even if they are the skinniest person alive.  If you find the hand-on-hip pose to be a bit forced, try holding your arms out from your sides ever so slightly.

Below is a classic example. These are my friends and we just messing around in the make up area in the studio. The girl on the right is Max and see she is facing straight onto the camera but the second shot she is turned on an angle and the classic arm on the hip. This gives the body more shape, angles that cause the eye to stay longer looking at her. Her body looks more interesting and becomes a very flattering shot!
