Location Warehouse Studios

Some time ago one of the photographers that Bruno follows, Oz Saiki posted a few photos of models wearing Star Wars droid bathing suits with matching character helmets (Vader, Storm Trooper & Boba Fett). Seeing this inspired him to organize a Star Wars themed shoot, allowing the combination of two things that he loves… Star Wars and photography.

With this in mind Bruno started to plan and of course the makeup artist that first came to mind was Anni, as she is one of the biggest Star Wars fans he knows.

Now there on a roll and the plan is coming together. They started early December 2016 and Morgan was brought on-board to be Bruno’s assistant. No the plan is in full motion and next was the booking of Warehouse Studios for early February.

So the idea for the shoots concept is the models are composited into Star Wars planet backdrops and there is no one better than Carol Larsen. Anni lined up other team members to help her out: Jaymee-Beau Potter for hair and Tennielle Copson to assist with the makeup.

The Empire

Bruno has followed Carol’s work since he started shooting and they have worked together in the past. She’s a very multi-talented lady and was the perfect choice to be Darth Vader. Carol is also responsible for the amazing composites you will see at the end of this story!

He has also shot with Ally more times than he I could count. They became very good friends and she’s as talented as she is sweet (and hot)! You will see her here as our Storm Trooper AND C3PO!
