Mr. Newton for Marie Claire Spain – Sept. 2011
Hi everyone – those of you who follow me on Twitter may remember that back in July I did an editorial shoot for Marie Claire Spain. Well, I wasn’t allowed to post the photos from the shoot at the time…BUT…now that the issue has recently been released…I wanted to share the pics with you guys! We shot the story in Paris on the morning of the last day of the couture…and it was probably one of my best experiences ever working on a shoot. We had a stylist and hair and make-up artists of course…but we kept the feel of the shoot firmly rooted in the street style arena. Even our models had an authentic street style feel – they were all students at a local Parisian fashion school. Best of all, we had this amazing Mercedes van with a driver that took us all over central Paris…AND…I had my French friend Esther along to assist me and function as my translator!
Here below then are all of my favorite photos from the day. If you scroll down to the last two images, those are scans of four of the actual pages from the issue. Hope you like!
Also – for those of you who are foreign fashion magazine junkies (i.e. for everyone who reads this blog) – I want to be sure that you guys know about Zinio. It’s a great way to buy inexpensive single issues of high-res digital versions of magazines from around the world – just go to the area in the top right corner of their homepage and change your country when doing a search – also, be sure that safe view is set to “off” or it may filter your search results. Playboy France, anyone? xx Mr. Newton
