My first job of the year was an amazing collaboration of shooting a catalog for new sandals brand, Plip Plop, cover and inside spread of Body Magazine, and shooting for FHM Taiwan. I was invited by my friend and photographer David Barker to meet him in the Philippines, Boracay Island to shoot.
It was just after New Years so the island was bustling with people from all over the world enjoying their vacation. Coincidentally, my friend from Tokyo was there on vacation as well so I was able to meet up with her and her mom and spend some relaxing time together outside of Tokyo. It was really nice.
The shoots consisted of my own hair and make-up and my own styling, which I had never done before but it was actually really fun. It was so natural and smooth. And it was more like we were just having fun shooting pictures on a beautiful island than actually working. I am very lucky to have a friend as a great photographer. All of the pictures turned out beautifully on our two-manned shoot. I’m waiting excitedly to see them in print!
So if you’re in Taiwan or China, Please keep an eye out for me coming to magazine racks soon and make sure to pick up a copy! Great pictures plus interviews in both Body Magazine and FHM. And as always thank you for all of your support!
