At the Edge Featuring Rania
Moroccan Vibes with Rania Benchegra
Rania has an unforgettable look and a commanding presence in front of the camera. We love her dark eyes and gorgeous skin, as well as her ability to transport you to another place and introduce you to a new experience with each click. One of the joys of being a swimwear photographer is the ability to shoot in gorgeous locations and with beautiful faces from around the world. Not all segments of the industry are quite as welcoming to diversity, but swimwear is one that often times demands it. So, we have a lot of fun casting and shooting for swim.
Intrigue is an important component to our work and Rania definitely added that special quality to this set. Another important element is authenticity, and that includes skin tones and features. We work very hard in the retouching process to ensure that we preserve the natural beauty of our models. I loathe seeing gorgeous people – models and celebrities – white-washed on magazine covers and in ads. It infuriates me to no end, so we pay special attention to actually bring their differences and unique qualities to light. I love this shoot because we accomplished just that. We hope that you enjoy it too.
