By Maria Comparetto Io Donna with Schmidt & Gorges

Maria Comparetto worked on this beautiful 24 page shoot shoot for Io Donna Magazine with photographers Lydia Gorges and Jens Schmidt. Styled by Jane Howard @ MAP with the model Georgie Badiel @ FM Model Agency and Paul Merritt @ Jed Root on hair.

Here’s what she had to say about it:

I really enjoyed this shoot for Io Donna.
It was my first time at this particular studio (
MKII in Hackney),and working with the ever so lovely Lydia & Jens photographic duo. They have a really great approach to shooting and I felt they really portrayed the London streets where we were shooting in a very different way, making our urban landscape feel really new with fresh angles on architecture and things we take for granted like the regular corner store!

Georgie, the model was so amazing, so gentle and spiritual yet so sassy and cool with a brilliant sense of humour. Paul Merritt had prepared a stunning wig for her which he moulded for every shot.

Jane the stylist made all the clothes look effortlessly blended and created some beautiful wearable looks.This story was mega; 25 pages of fashion could end up looking very ‘samey’ where makeup was concerned, so I made a huge effort to mix it up a bit and play with textures eye shapes and lashes. I cannot wait to work with this team again,It was a chilled but super fun day with stunning results! wouldnt you say?
