Fashion blogs are certainly a relatively recent phenomenon, which have taken the fashion industry by storm. Their appeal has been tremendous and they have gained huge popularity, since nowadays more and more women search for styling inspiration online. Besides, fashion has acquired a special place in the world of social media and Instagram in particular. An this is something that fashion bloggers know very well. By uploading photos of their favourite outfits, going to big fashion events and giving their personal style to the trends of the season, they have gained a big fan base.
Travelling to beautiful destinations is part of the many perks of being a fashion blogger and Santorini could not but be present in every fashion blogger’s bucket list. And of course every fashion blogger in Santorini wants to to get photographed in the famous caldera with the impressive views over the Aegean Sea. Besides, the unique minimalist architecture of the island constitutes the perfect backdrop for a fashion shoot, while the sunlight, which is reflected on the white buildings all around, creates very interesting lighting conditions. I use reflectors and portable studio flashes to take further advantage of the Santorini light and give my photos a distinctive editorial look that is my signature style in my wedding photos as well.
Shiralee Coleman is a well-known Sydney-based fashionista, socialite and director of PR manager agency, who has been working in the fashion industry for many years. She first got in touch with me through my Instagram profile and told me that she will be in Santorini the first week of July and that she would like to arrange a photoshoot with me. Fortunately I managed to find an available date in my busy summer schedule.
