About This Studio Portrait Session
Based in Tokyo, Noémie Nakai and Go Kamada are about the prettiest couple you can find. You know... One of those couples who are so gorgeous you almost hate them. Go is a fashion model under the management of BARKinSTYLE (Toyko) and Noémie is an actress and television personality here in Japan. Basically, the couple is one of the most photogenic pairs on the block.
I was determined to get the lovers behind my lens. But, instead of shooting a romantic couple's portrait session, I wanted to photograph the two individually. I spoke with Noémie and Go a few times about some portrait ideas and we decided on a date. I was thrilled that we were finally going to have a session together.
As I packed my bag, I grabbed a few interesting items that I thought could be worked into our shoot. I found a one piece bathing suit, some cigarettes and a pile of my wife's hair curlers quickly (Hair curlers may seem to be an odd thing to through into a man's bag. But, for some reason I knew I should take them).
Noémie and Go showed up at the studio in the late afternoon and we crafted a few looks out of the clothes that I had brought along with me. I even convinced Noémie to put those hair curlers in! With wardrobe decided, Noémie and Go sat down with Carolina Lee, our fabulous make-up artist.
For the next couple of hours, we messed about in our downtown studio and produced several solid frames that I am happy to share!
