Magazine Style Actors Portrait with Sage Godrei

I met Sage at a photography exhibition at TAP Gallery a couple of months ago where she had what I thought to be one of the more creative pictures in a fairly large group show. We got to chatting and as it turned out, she is an Actor and a Writer, and if you include that picture she took a photographer too; basically a bit of an all-rounder or 'slashie' as the saying goes on the creative front. It didn't take me long to hatch a plan to get Sage to come into the studio to do some portrait work with her. Not the actors headshot type of shot as she already has those; something more along the lines of the kind of picture I might produce if I were making the shots for an editorial story in a magazine.

We decided to keep the shoot as simple as possible, joining forces for the styling (much as I do on many modelling portfolio shoots) working with the wardrobe she brought along - doing her own make-up, creating a few different 'looks' to show Sage's various sides to her creative self.
