Featured: MOTW – Zuza

Featured Model of the Week (“MOTW”) : Zuza

MatthewOsbornePhotography – Model Photographer
This is a new feature to share some of my favourite model photography/ fashion and beauty images from a selection of the best models I have had the pleasure of working with over the last few years, both here in the UK and overseas.  Photos have been captured with various camera equipment and you can see the details by clicking on the images.
Model – Zuzanna (“Zuza”)
Location – Gdansk, Poland

I met Zuza on my last trip to Poland when shooting with a model agency in Gdansk. We only spend perhaps 3 hours together taking photos but within that time I was able to capture so of my perhaps best portrait images. We had no wardrobe person, no makeup artist, no hair stylist, no studio, no lights, just the basics, a camera, a lens and a 5 in 1 reflector. The equipment used was a Leica M9 rangefinder camera and a Leica Noctilux 50mm f1.0 v2. Zuza brought her own clothes and style along to the shoot and I styled her with the garments she had and posed her accordingly. All photos are daylight lit only. Zuza seemed to have this very relaxed not really bothered personality yet when I pressed the shutter it instantly looked like some stylised photo that had taken a whole team hours to prepare. The entire shoot was effortless and Zuza was a real pleasure to work with. I hope to work with her again on my next trip to Poland.

Here are some sample images from our shoot. I was taking photos as B&W JPEGs + DNG (colour):
