How Can A Dress Look When Photographed On Different Models By Different Photographers.
Photographs from a photo shoot with the exact same dress, sounds cool right, In January, Danielle Reeder gathered a small group of 11 photographers to experiment his idea of this photo project called “The Travelling Dress Collective” was to pass one dress around between 11 photographers working in a variety of genres and styles across the UK. Which shared a unique story of and about the dress , Lets check the output.
Each Photographer had 5 days to trace a vision for the photo shoot of the dress before passing it on. Without much rules other than not to get it wet .They had to complete their task. With completely unique in their vision and style,” Each of the participants later shared their experience with the gorgeous traveling dress and the ideas behind their shoots.
“Instantly fell in love with this dress the moment I first saw it! It is the dress of absolute dreams! I thought I had my time with the dress planned, but as is sometimes the case, things do not go to plan . . . sometimes they get better!” says Danielle Reeder.
We were lucky enough to have a relatively warm day with pretty perfect lighting conditions. I’d initially planned to hold the session indoors with a completely different feel . We had lots of fun exploring the location and making the most of the stunning surroundings, which all worked beautifully with the dress.”
“The style of the dress reminded me of a cross between 1920’s Gatsby style and bohemian chic. I do love the Gatsby style, but I already had a vision in my mind of how I wanted to portray the dress which was more in line with the boho chic look so that is what I decided to use as inspiration for my photography shoot,” says Francesca Low.
“When I think of the anything bohemian, I think of open fields, light, freedom and love. For this exact reason I decided to venture outdoors with the dress to a local woodland.”
“When Danielle came up with the idea for the Travelling Dress I just had to get involved. I knew the majority of the photographers were available light and location photographers so I knew I had to studio shoot ,” says Gary Hill.
The model was sixteen year old Tara Yasmin Holland. She seemed like she had all the right attributes to help pose and be photographed in the ‘travelling dress’ With pointe shoes and dancing tights she put on the dress and came alive as if ‘dancing’ to a score whilst on stage.
I was amazed by the sparkle, its stylishness and the plunging neckline, because I knew that I could use it in the way I had imagined,” – says Elora Viano.
“When I planned this session, I wanted a mum who was still breastfeeding her baby. I wasn’t interested in the child’s age, because that doesn’t matter. I wanted to show how beautiful, comforting, and natural breastfeeding is, no matter where you are, or what you are wearing!”
The dress travelled to Balmedie beach, near Aberdeen, along with my friend’s beautiful teenage daughter Isla as my model. We arrived at our destination just before sunset on what turned out to be a pretty cold and overcast May evening. Luckily the rain stayed away and Isla was still happy to do the shoot despite the cold!” says Lauren Shepherd.
“I love how the impending storm clouds add a dramatic effect to the images. I also loved using my Lensbaby for part of this shoot as I don’t usually use it. It was fun having the creative freedom to use it for this project!”
Being someone who is quite taken with people’s relationships and how they connect with others, or the spaces around them. I already knew that the dress was going to come on a journey with me, to physically join me everywhere I went for the time .
I looked at it for a while just hanging there before tentatively tried it on. Then quickly took it off again. I took it with me on a photo shoot at a female artists’ retreat, Michelle was drawn to it so she tried it on.
Unfortunately I got the date for my turn wrong and all my planning in my head went to pot as I had the dress the weekend before I thought!” says Ashleigh Shea. “So after a busy day shooting we quickly dashed up to the woods on a chilly Sunday to have a bit of fun and see what we could get.
She wanted to create a bit of a 70’s grungy vibe with the image. The dress is so versatile for both style and shape that it was easy to create the right atmosphere with a bit of help from lighting and prism to shoot through.
“Initially, when taking on the Travelling Dress Project, I was going to get a model in to do the shoot but was intrigued as to whether I was brave enough to model myself. Anyone who knows me will know I’m the quiet type, the one who likes to just merge into a background and be hidden from the world.
I was completely embarrassed and self conscious to begin with but tried my best to relax, and actually it was fine. It’s enlightening and actually fun.
