Sigh Styles Concept: Into the Wilderness

I've always wanted to do something: not-the-usual concept, where I can freely express my creative ideas through fashion, and photography.

It was just in time for a friend's birthday and why not give her a one-of-a-kind natal day gift: a fashion make-over!
Without hesitation, she said yes, though we both planned to do a shoot a few months before, and without a concept in mind yet at that time, but the concept landed perfectly in my consciousness days before her birthday, so this is sort of a surprise gift.  And I took the chance to consume whatever creative thoughts that were running in my head by realizing the long-been planned photo shoot.

The concept was about being in the wilderness, where no one else is around. Her, being ''fashionably'' stranded in the woods, filled with all natural creepiness and possible grotesque attacks. 
She seems to be the queen of the jungle, the princess of the Amazon, and the golden lady of the dark

I am happy with the outputs of this shoot.  
With this photo shoot, my intuition that my friend has much potential to be a model has been indeed confirmed. Plus, I discovered a new talent! Another add-on to Sigh Styles' list of breakout talents.
 My friend / the muse of this concept is one of the fresh faces to grace Sigh Styles blog and fb account and to have been captured also by my new prime lens. 

Hope you like this and if you're interested for a fashion make-over such as this, you can email me at or drop me a message HERE.

Belated Happy Birthday to my MODEL/Friend: JERLY
With great thanks to Dani Alcedera, my trusted make-up artist friend.

Sigh Styles Concept: Goth Dolls

I had a collaboration shoot with a make-up artist-in-the-making and her 16-year old cousin who wants to venture into modelling.

I have always desired to "discover" talents and skills and serve as a powerful tool to the growth and enhancement of these talents. Sigh Styles' new advocacy, is, to discover, develop and share the talents / skills of wonderful people who have overwhelming passion with fashion, like mine, from modelling, to fashion styling, fashion design and  the art of hair styling and make-up.

Meet Hazel, the make-up artist and also the model and her cousin, Kenia.

For this shoot, the concept was about GOTH DOLLS
And since it is summer, I added pops of neon for a fun, warm touch of the season.

Model: Hazel

Model: Kenia
"Not bad for a first try" - according to Kenia, and I so agree!

More of pictures of the photo shoot HERE.

I admit that my outputs from this shoot are not quite at there best as the photo shoot happened late in the afternoon when Mr. Sun was beginning to hide from us. Quick f.y.i: Hazel and Kenia are among the fresh faces captured using my new prime lens.  I really have fun working with them. The following shoot with these ladies was totally dark, and it was way more challenging than this.  Watch out for it.

Keep coming back to see my future concept shoots.
