Beate traveled to the Southern tip of Corsica to create these sun soaked visuals for Armani.
The whole shoot took place from the front deck of a yacht moored off shore. Despite stormy seas and Dior bottles slipping around more than silk on skin, everything was captured on location – quite a feat!
– Beate –
“The challenges were the overall condition of the weather because it was very windy any reflectors and cards had to be handheld otherwise they would have been blown out to sea!”
Beate’s latest personal project explores surface tension. The balance between liquid and solid merging.
– Beate –
“I was exploring how the combination of different liquids, textures and powders can create suspended/abstract moments in time:
Much like how a water-boatman walks on water. There is a fine line between the surface tension and that of the water droplets breaking.”
Beate was commissioned by The Sunday Times to capture ‘The Style List: Women’s Gifts” guide.
The draping set and colourful images were created from Beate’s riverside studio. Over four days the team twisted fabric to create hard shapes.

Stylist Magazine approached Beate with M&S for a collaborative project to feature stills and Gif’s.
Beate – ‘We had two styling briefs; first, of which incorporated petals with the lingerie, the second featured mirrors. By the end of the shoot, creative visions had shifted and I devised a lighting treatment in post-production to draw out a more autumnal atmosphere.’
The Sunday Times flew Beate to Paris in order to capture some very specialist jewellery for the latest feature.
On arrival the creative team set to work highlighting unique features of each piece with flowers and ripe fruit.
