Ben Grimes – Fashion Photography Test For J.Crew
Le Image’s newest images feature one of New York Model Management’s star models, Ben Grimes. Ben, a London native, has enjoyed great success in the fashion industry across the globe. Images of her modeling have been featured in Elle Magazine, Flair Magazine and V Magazine. Ben Grimes is represented by modeling agencies in London, New York, Hamburg and Barcelona. Our fashion photographer worked with her to create images for a fashion photography test for apparel brand, J.Crew.
J. Crew, with 333 stores in the US alone, is a retail giant. To create our test images for the company, our NY fashion photographer used both medium format film and Polaroid film. Shot in our Brooklyn photo studio, we created the luxurious feel of the fashion photos using contrasted lighting. Shooting indoors gives us much more control over the lighting of the photos and for this shoot, we could rely on our lights alone without the aid of gels for the lights. The lighting and coloring test ranges in style from the simple elegance of a grayscale photo to a bright and playful Polaroid.
These lighting tests are an important tool to show art directors the vision the photographer has for the company’s imagery, whether it be a catalogue or fashion campaign. Le Image Inc continues to grow and learn with each and every photo shoot. We believe these images show a great range of our fashion photography’s art direction. It is important to be able to switch to different aesthetics as it keeps us our toes by not allowing us to get comfortable in one style and it shows other companies that we are more than capable of creating something with their look and style as well. We are very lucky to work with such great talents and look forward to our next New York fashion photography photo shoot.
