OyOy Shoots Swimwear “On The Rocks” with Elite Model Courtney O’Connor

OyOy Shoots Courtney O'Connor On the Rocks

These images are outtakes from an editorial photoset we shot on Miami-South Beach. Our brief was to shoot on the beach in a more stylized style.

How to achieve more fashion than glam with the über sexy Victoria’s Secret discovery and now Elite model Courtney O’Connor put my production team to the test.

Shooting swim and resort wear on the rocks is definitely not comfortable for the model, but the backdrop offers a nice contrast and change from the usual here in South Beach.

See more outtakes after the jump, all safe for work.

Jewelry designer Charles Albert accessorized the wardrobe fro the shoot.  They are spectacular pieces, and were positively brilliant in the mid-day sunshine.

Courtney O'Connor's Mischievous Complicity with the Camera

The wardrobe in this series from Mandalynn deliverd the elegant look we needed to achieve. Wardrobe stylist Joel Massiah earned a college degree in rock climbing during the shoot, having to scamper up and down the rock walls all during the shoot.

A Strong Pose from Elite Model Courtney O'Connor Atop The Rocks

This last pose at the top of the rocks was nerve wracking for everyone.  Wearing heels is not easy; balancing on one foot even in the studio is even less easy; balancing on one foot on an uneven rock in the wind is really tough.  Seeing your model sway while gaining balance with a 15 meter drop is tough on the photographer.

For this image we had spotters under the model, just in case… but we made sure to get the shot quickly anyway.
