Posted by Ikenna Nwimo on

Lights. Cameras…and we lifted off to action! The first ever Blaque Falcon Season One shoot kicked off on Saturday 20th May at RiDa Studios in Shoreditch, East London. Despite the weather troubles, the shoot was an overwhelming success. Looking at the result of the look book brochure, you wouldn’t think that some of the models were inexperienced! The shoot itself, was shot in two parts: E-commerce and Look Book. These were shot by up coming creative photographers Declan Mckenna (who also modelled) and Jack Lindengray. The E-Commerce was shot in a simple white background of the studio itself. These are...
