We have been really digging Alice's Music before we conceptualized Beautiful Blood Magazine. It was almost 4 weeks before we were going to print, we wished of her to be the face of Vol.1. BBTV has created its first cover with Alice, seen pure and real, shot by Jonathan Kope is an absolute miracle. When we got a yes from Alice's manager for this opportunity, we decided to choose the right team to shoot this story in Cape Town and it took us only 8 days to bring this to life.
Written by Umer R. The feature completely vows her true self. When we received the selection from JK it was an eye candy for us and we went just full of smiles. After rounds of prints for the cover option and opinions from our friends we chose the purest portraits of her. BBTV is now officially live at beautifulblood.tv and open for online submissions and AW print submissions. We are looking forward for the upcoming stories and issues.
We are 6 months down the road after we launched Beautiful Blood Magazine, the No.4 Issue really sets the tone and the meaning behind the magazine. However, diversity is such a big topic and we cannot give it justice by doing just one story or a piece on it so we decided to celebrate it with one main story followed by a series of online cover stories. Thanks to all the contributing artists for making this happen.
BOY/GIRL are photography duo Jason and Liz, whose ability to bring a concept to life is second to none, quietly concentrating on every aspect of the brief itself in order to create exceptional photographs and films. Their mastery of light, paired with their creative direction and flawless abilities within post production, mean that no matter how big or small the project, these two creative polymaths are able to elevate every concept, delivering the highest quality product whether on set or location.
The starlets who appear in their work are always at ease- a testament to BOY/GIRL's friendly and quietly focussed approach on set. This too, allows creativity to thrive within an environment where every part of the team is involved and valued.
