the afropolitan shoot

This was my first proper fashion shoot. It makes me respect the likes of Mutua Matheka and Steve Kitots who do glamour shoots at the blink of an eye.

Afropolitan sells African jewelry, accessories and shoes for the cosmopolitan lady.Bev, the fearless influencer who runs Afopolitan is a world citizen, shuttling with ease between continents leaving a bag of charm wherever she goes. We met when she was taking the one-year Discovery programme at Mavuno Church.

Arboretum was the perfect location for the look Bev wanted. But the African sun, on the equator, lived up to it’s fame of falling other than setting. One minute we were using flash to kill shadows, another we were lighting the whole scene!

I had a lot of fun working with the models too and can’t wait for the Afropolitan site to be up!
