Summertime chic worth replicating

Summer dressing allows for an unbridled optimism that only a less-is-more philosophy and palette of light, bright colours can bring. It’s that time when you can let your freshly pedicured toes see the daylight through open-toes shoes; when a ponytail is a stylish necessity because the humidity is only going to mess your hair up, anyway. Where a dress and pair of sandals are the…

Temperature rising in more ways than one

The mercury is rising in some parts of the world, and to celebrate the sexy side of summer Michael David Adams brings us this photoshoot titled Fahrenheit. With glossed, bronzed skin and messy wet look hair, model Nadya Shaye pulls off that kind of sexy that comes from being sweaty and sweltering and willing to shed off the layers.

Acquatic beauty

There’s something particularly striking about beauty shoots photographed in watery surrounds. At least that’s the case when they’re beautifully shot, as per Michael David Adams‘ latest work, to bring out the cool azure hue of the water such that it only serves to somehow draw more attention to the makeup rather than detract from it. I guess there’s also the irony that a swimming pool…

Swimwear doesn’t have to be a formula

Swimwear pictorials normally follow a recipe. One part photographer, one part model, one part waterside location (preferably a beach), several parts swimwear and so on. The colours of the resulting photo shoot are usually both intense and saturated, all communicating the beauty of summer and the intensity of its sun. Few pictorials venture elsewhere. Return to the Sea by Michael David Adams does however. It…

Walking on sunshine

Autumn’s shadow has been cast across the Southern Hemisphere and soon the summer sun will be a distant memory. But as the sunshine leaves one section of the world it makes its promise of spring 2012 warmth to the other: soon, you can trade your coats for chiffon dresses, your cosying by the fireside for sprawling on the beach. Michael David Adams‘ shoot Walking On…

Beauty school dropout

If you’ve seen 1978′s Grease then the odds are that you’re more than familiar with Frankie Avalon’s song of the same name. In it Avalon, as guardian angel, opines the future of Frenchy; a high-school drop out with dreams of becoming a beautician. Frenchy is sadly “a teenage ne’er-do-well”; not much of a student and even less of a beautician. While it’s right there in…

Stranded in style

Being stranded on a lonely island with minimal clothing and zero food supply sounds like a nightmare, but not if you’re in the fashion industry. Having an entire island at your disposal is a cliché in the best of its abilities, but things are different when crochet wraps, shell jewellery and beach hair is involved. For this editorial, model Marianne Fonseca has stepped into a…

Miami contrasts

Miami. You don’t have to go there to draw a mental association of roads lined with palm trees, glittering nightlife, and expanses of bright blue water surrounding the city. There may also be an image that springs to mind of tanned skin and pink bikinis, copped tops and rollerskates. Michael David Adams’ shoot Miami Weiss isn’t just a clever play on the name of the…

Mediterranean lovers

Two lovers – floating in crystal water, perched up on semi-submerged rocks, passionately leaning against each other’s bare bodies. The Croatian water is almost like their private pool with no unwanted guests, onlookers or tourists to hustle. This seclusion might reinforce their idea of lustful love making, or it’ll foster the mere act of sexualising the surroundings. But what weighs heavier – their passionate love…
