Unicorn Rainbow | Beauty Photographer Dana Cole Pix

Hey Hey !
So those of you who know me from Facebook, know I have begin my book project.

This book is called ‘Unicorn Rainbow’
Unicorn Rainbow will feature everything that goes on in my mind. Un-censored and full of color. I want you all to see the world as I see it !
The book will have many different color collections of about 10-15 images in each collection.. Some pretty tame and some will be over the top !!

I recently just finished up the first shoot and editing for the first look and color collection of the book.
I decided to start with Purple as the first collection. (I am loving purple lately, so why not start with it, haha.

I worked with lovely Model: Eleonor Frostegård from Sweden on this shoot.
My MUA/Hair stylist was the always fabulous Ragnhild Petersen.

Here are some BTS Images of the fun we had the day.


Here are my final selections from the shoot.
I will use 2-3 of these for the book. Not sure which specific ones yet, but that can be a surprise within the book when it’s done 😀

Hiya all,

Yeah yeah I know.
I skipped a week. teehee 🙂
So, this is not a new shoot but it is a new shoot to my blog. This was a beauty editorial I shot last year called “From Summer, With Love”.
Which was published in LUCY’S Magazine June 2016 issue.
I love the way this shoot turned out.
I am also including a bit of the BTS we got to shoot the day of as well.
Hope you enjoy it.

Colorful Beauty Photography | Dana Cole | Oslo, Norway

Hey all . This can be considered my FIRST official blog post :D

I did a little beauty artsy photo shoot late last year. I wanted to get a little creative with tulle and hats. Sadly, I only had time to find one hat before the shoot due to a busy schedule and not catching the mall in enough time. haha. So, I had to find a way to make 3 different looks out of one hat. I think I managed to pull it off.
What do you think? :D

I had a lovely model by the name  of Ida (IG@idagoytil) from Pholk Agency here in Oslo, Norway
The MUA for this shoot was the fabulous Vera Støbakk (IG@veras_makeup)

We filmed some BTS of this shoot. I do show the light setup in well as showing how I made some of the hats while on Ida's head. It was certainly a fun photoshoot.
I do hope you enjoy the BTS video.

See BTS Video here:

Here is a selection of some of the final images that I liked and retouched. :)
I may show more on the blog later as there are a few more I also enjoyed.

Until next time guys and gals !!!!
