Louis Marzin Pt I + II










Louis Marzin @ Wilhelmina LDN

Louis had the pleasure of watching me struggle as I became locked out of my flat during our shoot. He has such a calm aura about him, I am so glad he was there, although professionalism quickly flew out the window, seeing him again a week later was so lovely. He got his hair cut and some new head shots were in order.

He's a total babe and I fancy him, is that bad? unprofessional?
 lol probably!

Strolling in The Old Town










Marija Zaric @ Star System Montenegro

Marija was one of the first models I shot during my visit in Montenegro; after being told that some of the models I would shoot may not know English or to have never even shot before, I was definitely anxious to say the least but she was such a great model to start off with. Marija has travelled with modelling and speaks perfect english, not to mention her fun and bubbly personality making everything all so easy. She was soo much fun!

Random fact I learnt from Montenegro: their alphabet doesn't have the letter 'Y' and when the letters 'C' and 'I' are together, it's pronounced 'CH' - so really my name is a real tease to Montenegrins because it would be pronounced 'Chinsy', which to be fair isnt a first. I also asked how they would spell my name and apparently it would have been spelt like 'Sinsi'

A Scenic Route In Montenegro

Four days brought thirteen models to shoot, in twenty-six degree heat.



If you follow me on instagram you would have had an insight of my time in Montenegro, but let me give you the low-down anyway. 
A few months ago I was flown out to Montenegro for Starsystem where I had the privilege to shoot with their models. Everything was quite last minute, I was contacted and flown out within a space of 1 week (which worked perfectly with my unorganised/last minute lifestyle).
It was such a great experience for me, I loved every minute of it. 

I didn't really know much about Montenegro (or where it was to be honest) so it was really nice to learn about the country during my stay. I was accompanied by Aco who is a StarSystem representative and a very accommodating, great host. He drove me, fed me and informed me during my whole stay, oh and lets not forget he dealt with my many mood swings very well too (I know, I know, I'm so professional).

Montenegro is located right next to Serbia, I was in the capital which is Podgorica and it was the smallest little city I have ever been in! Everything was in walking distance and they're so proud of their country which was really lovely to see, as we drove from location to location I saw their flags hanging everywhere. From what I gathered, Montenegrin people are very into their health (they're all super skinny), I saw many exercise equipment in parks, people (especially elderly) jogging and they have NO MCDONALD'S in their country! Aco described Montenegro with the word "Naturistic" to me when I arrived and it really was, the country is full of land and beautiful mountains, it was so naturistic and so beautiful. Most of all, what I really loved about Montenegro was that they are such friendly people. We would walk down the street and everyone would say hello to each other no matter what.

Here's an insight of the locations that I shot at, I am so excited to share the images of the locations and beautiful faces that I captured!

Freezing Time; Budapest

   
(These photos are all 35mm film by Canon AE1 & Olympus Trip31)

2016 is flying by for me and it's been really great, I feel like I have been nonstop and I don't want that to stop! I have recently learnt how to develop my own film which is fab and yet I still sometimes shoot a whole role and develop a blank one. My noob mistakes continue (*facepalm*) and I hate myself for it every time. What I like about film is that it slows down the processes of photography because I forget what I've taken. It reminds of how much I have done in such a short time and I guess ground me to remember how grateful I am to do what I can with great people in my life. 

I went to Budapest with some friends in October last year and I've only just developed the images so it was a treat to find and I thought I'd share some with you. Most of the images document my friends, swimming in the baths and dancing at Szimpla bar (a must visit!!).
