Photographing Velvet Jones

Last year I had the pleasure of working with Velvet Jones on a shoot for Deadly is the Female. These are some images I managed to get behind the scenes. 

I was in awe of Sophia aka Velvet Jones who modeled with such elegance. I'd love to work with Sophia again on a ballet project.

I'm finding it really difficult to explain what I call beauty and why I choose my aesthetic. Its subjective, its definitely in the eye of the beholder and everyone is individually beautiful. I've met lots of women but a natural confidence and intelligence always come through as beauty. 

I need to learn more about the ethics and philosophy around beauty and aesthetics. Choosing and photographing a person as a model can be uncomfortable as the person becomes an object of beauty that I am observing.
