Rachel Bensimon is not only a talented hair and makeup artist, she’s also a fantastic painter. We’ve known each other for a while now, in fact I used to photograph Rachel when she did modelling and makeup and I was shooting fashion photography. I loved the way she did make up on models back then and I love how she has developed her skill to work with any age client which is perfect for the contemporary style portraits that I am doing now.
She’s still as beautiful as ever and we did some lovely portraits of her to commemorate her new hair color. I know she has the advantage of having worked in front of the camera many times before, but it was so much fun trying to keep up with her poses when I’m so used to walking everyone through the process.
