On Thursday, 30th July, 2015, I photographed my good friend
Anthonia Bejide. Anthonia is a virtuoso make up artist, but she
claims that she has never modeled before. Well, she is a natural
at modeling as well. Last week we did a shoot with the ever
enchanting model Pascale Boudreau, who looks sensational
with or without make up.
This is what Anthonia can do in no time...
Pascale was made up to look like a ghoul in a shoot done in an abandoned
rooming house. Since Pascale's beauty is anachronistic (honestly, she is
timeless), she cam across as a Mary Shelley herione by way of Lillian Gish.
The picture above was inspired by Viktor Sjostrom's 1928 film
The Wind, with Lillian Gish...
...and D.W. Griffith's 1912 film An Unseen Enemy, with Lillian (in
the background, below) and sister Dorothy Gish (foreground).
Pascale bravely faced the elements of this burnt out edifice.
Here is Pascale and Anthonia in conversation during the shoot.
Anthonia and I wanted to shoot Pascale in Gatineau/Hull on the 30th of July,
but Pascale was off to southern France. So Anthonia became my model. She
proved herself to be highly photogenic, jaw droppingly beautiful as she is in

You will not be disappointed, especially if you are looking for a first class
make up artist.
