Makeover and photoshoot

Hi all - for her 16th birthday my daughter wants to have a makeover and photoshoot experience. I've found options for the UK but not here in CH.


I've searched the forum but all references come to a dead end.


Does anyone know of an organisation / person that does this sort of thing?


Many thanks in advance.

Re: Makeover and photoshoot

What exactly does she mean by make over? New hairstyle, outfit, make up? Then go to hairdresser, beautician, clothes store and finally ask a professional studio to take pictures.
btw there is somebody called Marianna.Red, forum member, who offers make over and photo sessions in Basel. It was two clicks away.....

Edit: you are very welcome

Re: Makeover and photoshoot

Yes, you get to her facebook page If you click on "myself" in her post about the offer of a one day fotoshoot and from there you get to her homepage. "Sigh".

Re: Makeover and photoshoot

If I offer a helpful suggestion, will I get a groan and a snippy response too?

Re: Makeover and photoshoot

I have never heard of it in Switzerland but it is popular in the UK.

My friend had it done and everything is completed on the day in the same location so it is a real day out and usually done with friends.
My friend was made up, hair done and dressed in a most glamourous outfit then photographed - have to say the results were amazing and she and her daughter had a fab day out.

The member mentioned by MacG's D has not logged on in nearly a year, but the links on her most recent ad worked for me:

http://mariannadmakeup.com/
https://www.facebook.com/mariannad.makeup?ref=hl

If you clicked the link from her older ad, which specifically mentions a makeover and photo shoot, then yes that link leads to a blank page. Probably best to try via her own website or FB.

Re: Makeover and photoshoot

I've saved you some time and taken the pix for you and applied the Keira Knightley Photoshop filter.

That'll be CHF 150 please, plus internet connection fees.

For professional use, or just for fun? Most modelling agencies will refer to a local fashion photographer for these things. Fashion photographers will do these kinds of portfolio work as filler work in between assignments. But they would want to be taken seriously though - meaning no flaking and no lowballing. If you are serious, take her to an agency, and they will refer you to photographers that do headshots and lookbooks.

I would refer you to some photographers, but I wouldn't want you to waste their time.

Is it a one day makeover or she wants to change/find her style?

If it's the former, should not be difficult to find and the hairdresser makeup should do it. If it's the later, well, you need someone who does what I do but it won't come cheap.

If you need a photographer to complement the makeover, consider www.jamieanneramos.com. She is based in Geneva.
