For the December issue of ELLE the fashion team focuses on crazy but beautiful clothes. The idea for the shoot was to take ‘serious’ clothes and wearing them in a fun way. As ELLE’s fashion editor, Poppy Evans, says, ‘It’s only when you stop taking clothes so seriously, that they truly come to life. Have a ball and live a little.’

Elle Magazine fashion photo shoot at Roodebloem Studios

Asked if there were any hiccups Poppy Evans said “we took a while to get started – originally we were going to shoot on black backdrops but we ended up swapping in a grey shade at the very last minute. It all worked out in the end though!”

We are known for our stunning photographic studios but we also have a gear rental department for all your photographic equipment and lighting needs as well as a large selection of paper and canvas backdrops.

To find out more about this shoot visit the Elle Magazine website & watch this behind the scenes video.

Our Church Studio is a favourite with fashion photographers with a dedicated make-up room and privacy away from other studios.
