Just unpacked my beach bag after a young test shoot at Happy Valley/ Six Pillars beach this morning- as per usual, getting sand everywhere in the process!
For my novice model readers (and whoever else doesn't know..) a test shoot is a sort of practice photo shoot. A client (boutique, designer, stylist, makeup artist, etc.) needs to see you, the model, in as natural a state as possible ie. not much makeup or done up hair and decide whether or not you're right for their project/collection and if they've already chosen you, to see how much and what kind of make-up and hair they'll need to organize for the actual shoot.
Myself and some others from the agency could potentially be shooting swimwear for a local boutique and so we had a test shoot today with the lovely Carla behind the lense, no make-up, no fuss :)
Check it out!

Ah, well. My mumsy always says you can never have enough extra ;)
