I spent two days with Ryo - the first day she worked as a make-up artist, and the second day as a model. Ryo excels at both.
Having had problems sourcing a creative make-up artist, I was a little apprehensive wondering if she would 'get' the ideas I wanted her to create. There was no need to worry. When she arrived it was straight down to business and she got on with the job and came up with excellent interpretations which both the model and I were delighted with. Despite not having (to my knowledge) an MUA profile on Purestorm, I would suggest any photographers who require something unique book Ryo as a makeup artist.
On the second day, she once again travelled a considerable distance, and arrived at the location before I did for a fairly short session to model for me. Communication before, during and after both shoots was great and she is so easy to get on with. I had high expectations but she went way beyond them.
Fantastic poses, amazing outfits,, and attitude by the bucketload contributed to a brilliant shoot which I wish could have lasted much longer. The location I chose was a little disappointing, but Ryo made the most of it and worked very hard to ensure I was happy with the results, contributing ideas and suggestions if required. I am very keen to work with Ryo again and would recommend her to anyone who wants to create 'wow' photographs. Thanks Ryo for all your hard w0rk and creativity - you were amazing.
