Jamie has been out of the modelling game for over a year now, but when she heard I was coming back to Halifax she was motivated to jump right back in.
Anyone who follows me on social media knows how much I love gingers/redheads, so I always jump at the chance to work with them, especially models I haven’t worked with before. Jamie, 21, is one of those rare gingers who has very few freckles — her skin is nearly translucent, which makes her look more doll-like. So why not add some of those missing freckles with light? Using a set of cheap IKEA curtains I hung in the window, the mid-day sun blasted through them to create an interesting pattern on Jamie’s face.
You might be wondering if all of that super, super long red hair is real. It is! Jamie grew it herself! And it’s heavy as hell. I don’t know how she carries it around all the time.
Jamie was quite nervous getting back in front of the camera after such a long layoff, but she promised me she’d be contacting other photographers as soon as possible to keep going.
