Bronzed Earth-Goddess shoot with Melinda Walters

Bronzed Earth-Goddess shoot with Melinda Walters

Our beautiful earth provides all the colours we could possibly want in nature. From the rich warm browns and reds of the earth, to greens of the trees and plants, blues, greens and greys of the sky and water and a multitude of colours of flowers and insects, there is so much natural colour to choose from.

 

Recently the hugely talented husband and wife team, Marcus and Melinda Walters,  shot this amazing bronzed goddess/earth-inspired shoot in a secret Sydney location, using our nature-inspired colour palette.

 

What was the idea behind the look/shoot?

We wanted to create a bronzed goddess, almost tribal look and chose a model accordingly who had a natural, earthy look with beautiful olive skin. I wanted her to radiate natural beauty and the Ere Perez collection accentuated that perfectly.

 

The clothing was from my own wardrobe and the jewellery was bits and bobs of vintage pieces that I have collected over the years.

 

What made you choose to use EP?

I personally like working with ethical vegan products as it sits well with my own belief system and lifestyle. It’s a challenge to find  beauty products that are sourced from nature and as natural and organic as possible whilst still delivering results required for strong photographic looks. I felt that the Ere Perez products did just that!

 

What are your favourite EP products?

I cant narrow it to just one of the Ere Perez products as a single favourite… I would have to pick both the highlighter and bronzer as my absolute favourites and they have both become permanent features in my kit!

 

Ere Perez products used:

◦ Natural Oatmilk Foundation
◦ Pure Rice Powder Bronzer
◦ Organic Almond Oil Eyebrow Pencil
◦ Organic Jojoba Oil Eyeliner Pencil
◦ Versatile Vanilla Highlighter in Falling Star
◦ Natural Almond Oil Mascara in black; Aloe Gel Lash & Brow Mascara - clear
◦ Creative Chamomile eyeshadow duos in That’s hot and Very Important
◦ Moisturising Macadamia Oil Lipcolour in "Me"

    Sesión de Fotos inspirada en la Tierra, con Marcus y Melinda Walters

    Nuestro hermoso planeta Tierra ofrece todos los colores que puedas querer en la naturaleza. De los intensos marrones cálidos y rojos de la tierra, a los verdes de los árboles y plantas; azules, verdes y grises del cielo y el agua y una multitud de colores de las flores y los insectos, hay mucho color natural para elegir.

     

    Recientemente el talentoso equipo conformado por los esposos Marcus y Melinda Walters, hicieron una increíble sesión fotográfica, inspirada en la Tierra en un lugar secreto de Sydney, usando nuestra paleta de colores inspirada en la naturaleza.

     

    ¿Qué idea querían transmitir con estas fotografías?

    Queríamos crear una diosa bronceada, con look casi étnico así que escogimos una modelo con belleza natural, con un hermoso tono de piel en tono oliva. Quería que irradiara belleza natural y la colección Ere Perez acentuó esto perfectamente. La ropa que se utilizó era de mi propio guardarropa y la joyería eran piezas vintage que he coleccionado a través de los años.

     

    ¿Por qué decidiste escoger Ere Perez?

    En lo personal me gusta trabajar con productos veganos y éticos ya que esto va acorde con mis creencias y estilo de vida. Es todo un reto encontrar productos de belleza que estén hechos a base de ingredientes naturales y orgánicos que a la vez den un buen desempeño para crear looks de fotografía profesional. ¡Los productos Ere Perez logran exactamente esto!

     

    ¿Cuáles son tus productos favoritos de Ere Perez?

    No puedo reducir mi producto favorito de Ere Perez a sólo uno, tendré que escoger el Bálsamo Iluminador de Vainilla y el Bronceador a base de Arroz como mis dos absolutos favoritos. Los dos se han convertido en productos indispensables en mi kit de trabajo. Productos Ere Perez utilizados:

    ◦ Maquillaje Fluido con leche de avena
    ◦ Bronceador a base de arroz
    ◦ Lápiz Orgánico de Ceja con aceite de Almendra
    ◦ Lápiz Orgánico de ojos con aceite de jojoba
    ◦ Bálsamo Iluminador de Vainilla en tono Falling Star
    ◦ Mascara con aceite de almendras
    ◦ Mascara en gel con sábila
    ◦ Sombras con manzanilla en tonos That´s Hot y Very Important
    ◦ Labial de aceite de macadamia en tono Me.
