This is Shani, my newest model.
During another photoshoot I met Shani through her father, whom I had previously met on the seascape photography circuit. He wanted me to photograph her, and with one look at her amazing eyes, I knew that she should be in front of a camera.
In addition to modelling, Shani is a fashion designer, and makes her own clothes.
In the future, Shani will be modelling her designs and creations in front of my lens.
Shani is a great model, lots of fun, and we are looking forward to creating more images together.
