Portraits of Roman

3 October 2013

We love a bit of Roman Kemp, so when we received this lovely series from Amber Grace Dixon, we had to share. The FM Models boy has featured on Boys by Girls a few times; we interviewed the lovely guy on how to conquer a fear of flying (learn to fly) and his undying love for football, and Cecilie Harris shot a portrait series of Roman back in April.

This time, all we have is Roman, a camera, and the simplest of settings, and it's all that's needed as the boy looks beautiful and impresses us once again. With looks from Puma and Afends, the smart yet casual garments create a diverse series that reminds us why Roman is such a heartthrob.

Sometimes you can forget about lighting effects, complex editing and flamboyant styling - as amazing as they are, sometimes you just need a naturally stunning model and a few simple garments to create impactful images.

Amber Grace Dixon has shot for BBG a few times now, which include the very powerful "Eyes That Burn" featuring Denzel, and a portrait series of the one and only Niall Underwood. But for now, enjoy Roman.
