Urban Portraits in Brighton with Winona M. Lewis

After a busy summer with food photography, I finally got the time to start working on my portraiture ideas with a model. This time, I had the honor to shoot with Winona Mestrand in Brighton.

Originally from Denmark, she’s an actress, model and artist now based in Brighton. She’s a natural in front of the lens and got involved in every part of these projects bringing in a lot of ideas and awesome poses.

Our first session was a mid-afternoon shoot with Brighton’s street art as a background. I had a mix of ideas for this shoot, some stuff I’ve liked from Helmut Newton and some other people I follow. I wanted to produce tasteful and somehow elegant shots combined with the rough edge of the streets.
