“I see photography as that eye-catching moment that’s passing, and one which is authentic.” Adele Dejak. In our last blog, Photographic works using nature as a backdrop, we saw Adele being both a designer and photographer. She is used to carrying her camera almost everywhere, making her job her hobby. She always quotes “I love sharing my work as much as possible; I can see the most beautiful view in the world, but if I don’t capture it with my camera and publish it, it’s like I didn’t see it at all.” I got to work with Randy Gowon, one of my…

“Be You. Be your own kind of special.” Adele Dejak. Just as water is important for a living creature to survive, so is fashion and beauty photography. Fashion and beauty photography is one of the important area of study just as it is an important part of our everyday life. This is because it is always present, even though it’s not necessarily something people consciously ponder over and about such as getting dressed for a photo shoot showcasing Adele’s jewellery pieces with the designer herself, Adele Dejak. Late in July, Adele got to interact with her gang of creatives, Randy…

Animal print fabrics were draped around the 2 models. I wanted a raw African feel that would capture the essence of my ‘rebranding’ Africa journey. The crazy thing about this shoot was that the best photos were done the last hour when the light was going and everyone…
