Elise’s new personal project ‘Heavenly Creature’ centres around the natural. Sunlight bounces into frame from below the model, softening the harder shadows that can form in daylight settings.
This series also signifies a move away from studio beauty and into a slightly more loose, naturalistic beauty.
These fun and colourful images were shot by Elise for Femfresh. The team set up in the studio with party props and coloramas for a zesty quirk!
‘Beneath the Veil’ is Elise’s most recent personal project with a focus on body curves, textures, and tone.
The use of a veil symbolises barriers and change. Close crops of the model dominate this series and build on the intimacy that surrounds marriage.
From Erik Almas’s personal series focussing on insecurities and the stigma around body features.
Eriks personal challenge to capture emotion, with a focus on the visual is a step away from much of his commercial work, which is based in the realm of the conceptual.
Erik said of the project “It was both a gift and a joy to focus so intently upon emotion.”
JFW Magazine commissioned Elise Dumontet for the series titled “It all worked out”.
Elise was unleashed to capture the raw power and beauty of women working out. Particular attention was given to the the models skin by use of diffused and gentle highlights seen on the face and arms. The series features watches by Chanel, Hublot & Tag Heuer, with clothing produced by Puma, Ivy Park & Sophia Webster.
Elise shot these images for Elena Karavasili and have since been seen featured in Marie Claire, Greece.
Directing the set build, Elise worked to create something very playful and surreal, denoted by the contrast in colour. The positioning of the model, seated on a plinth adds to the theme.
The motion and stills are all about showcasing the product as the spiritual home for the beauty bold and the fashion fearless. It is about smashing the rules, defying obedience and wearing your war paint exactly the way you want it!
