I photographed Leonie Valentine for Playboy South Africa’s May 2013 edition.
The shoot came together in studio where it had been moved a bit last minute. The theme was ‘lingerie catalogue-ish”. It wasn’t one of my favourite shoots for the magazine but Leonie is so beautiful it made it hard to go to wrong.
Ive included a bunch of behind the scenes shots because I’m a fan of seeing the background to a shoot.
You can see from the shot above that I used some vintage film lighting gear for some of the shoot. It yields a beautiful warm light with great shadows.
The small and fun team on the shoot was Mickey who assisted me, Sebastine Pepler who did hair and make up and our model Leonie.
