A Dark Concept

Blue Mountain Photographic Arts featuring Stephanie Ballet


A few weeks ago I had the honor of creating a stylized studio shoot with Belgian model Stephanie.

Sometimes you like to create a portrait that just screams drama and emotion. Sometimes that emotion might be joy, but this time the idea was to portray a sort of dark, brooding atmosphere.

To achieve this, a dark, dramatic scene was set up, using a single light source to produce some facial shadows. I dare to say, nothing is quite like the effect of low-key lighting to show drama in an image.

Stephanie is a model I love to work with. She is an absolutely beautiful young woman both inside and out. You can find more of her works on her model profile page.

I also was very lucky and grateful to collaborate with the amazing Anne-Sophie Conickx of Grimmik who did an absolutely phenomenal make up job. Her work is just beautiful and I want to give my dearest thanks to her!

Special thanks also to Yvonne van Ingen – Verheijen from Fantasy Design for letting us use the wonderful dress.



I hope you enjoyed looking through these photos as much as I enjoyed creating them!
