Behind The Scenes With Stephen

6 March 2019

On a lovely autumn morning, photographer Cecilie Harris, Stephen Smith (FM Models), stylist Chris Benns and hair/makeup artist Holly Silius headed to the park to shoot a 90's-inspired editorial. With references to Phil Collins songs and the cult film 'Kids', there were a lot of vintage labels, crewneck sweatshirts and of course, denim on denim.

The video below gives you guys a little insight into what we do, showcasing a collection of exclusive outtakes documenting the entire day; from Chris and Holly prepping our model for the day ahead, to a stranger's cute dog joining in on the fun. As with the editorial, Stephen's beauty stands out and even though in most of the video he is caught-off guard, he maintains his 90's-kid coolness. A few things we wish we could have included in the video is the amount of shirts we ironed, a man fishing amongst the trees and the countless cups of tea we drank.

Make sure to check out the final results of the editorial "Another Day In Paradise".
