A Midsummer Night’s Dream
At least once every year my hairdresser Mia hosts a photoshoot with a special theme and story each time, and picks the best photos to send to different contemporary haidressing magazines. I’ve taken part in these photoshoots over the last two years and together with a bunch of creatíves (a make-up artist, two other assistant hairdressers, a photographer, costume designer and a bunch of models) we form a group called Hairahdus.
This year it took place towards the end of August, with the theme of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, in the japanese garden, east of Helsinki. The last few times I joined them in different photoshoots I have been one of the models, but this time I was the backstage photographer, documenting a ‘making of’ of sorts. It was an exhilarating experience and I enjoyed it even more than modelling. The next photoshoot is going to take place in January, so there will be more photos to come. Apart from the intense photoshooting I find it wonderful to see how the group is becoming more tightly knit!
