StyleBermuda ‘Photoshoot War’: Swimsuits

August 11, 2011

Three local photographers put their talents to the test for Style Bermuda’s latest fashion segment: Photoshoot Wars.

“We chose three of our favorite local photographers – Alex Masters, Anthony Francis and Kageaki Smith, and asked them for their own take on one of our favorite parts of summer, the Swimsuit,” said Melissa Fox, Style Bermuda’s Editorial Director.

Photographers were left to their own devices to come up with a concept, select locations, cast models, and choose their hair, makeup and styling teams. The shoot showcased clothing and accessories from various local stores including Stefanel, Cecile, Sail On, Sovereign, Mambo, Perry Footwear, Gibbons Company and Calypso.

Local models featured include Courtney Davis, Lianna Aggarwal, Rayneisha Bean, Sara Fitzisimmons, Sophie Adams, Rachel Sawden, Rayneisha Bean, Tsilala Graham-Hayes and Shauntia L.

“We were really excited to see what each photographer came up with, and they definitely did not disappoint. They each put their own stylish spin on one theme, came up with creative concepts and profiled a few fresh new faces. Not only that, they all showed locally available swimwear in a stunning way,” says Ms Fox.

Who shot it best? You can decide on where viewers can vote on their favorite photoshoot, with the winning photographer not only earning bragging rights, they’ll win prizes for their entire team – stylists, models, makeup artists, hairstylist, the whole crew.

    Meh. Better to look than to listen I bet. Here’s to the women working towards real careers…

      You’re looking at a handful of girls under the age of 20 in swimwear on your lunch break. I sincerely doubt you’re interested in any qualities of theirs that aren’t skin deep.

      But FYI – Lianna is at university doing veterinary medicine. Rayneisha: Business. Sophie: Art. Sara is at Guelph. Rachel went to McGill. Ashley is currently interning within the financial sector. The others I don’t know well enough to speak on their behalf. All of those I have met are extremely well mannered, respectful and articulate.

      And then there’s you.

      It’s a good thing love is blind.

      Ignorance. People like you are the Bermudians who thrive on discouraging others. These girls are simply participating in something that they enjoy and are obviously good at while working towards their “real careers”. Ever thought of that? nice response

    @Spectator that is why your on the sideline looking in. These girls are in thier late teens early 20′s and if you wasn’t so small minded you would know that this is a hobby and not a job. Truthfully they probably have a better job then you do or in school still doing betta then you. Clearly you have always been a spectator & never a participant…..HATER

    This island has so much hidden potential…. shine ladies, shine!!

    @ Spectator: believe it or not, many women have used this route to finance their “real careers”.
