Suzy Broad


Edited: Jun 14


I met Suzy with her mum Lynn when I was shooting for a modelling agency out of my house in Brooklyn. They watched me stand up on a box to get some height and smack my head into a roof beam. Yep it hurt. I have no idea how many times I have shot with Suzie because it's been so many but this photo stands out for me as it was the first collaboration I had ever done with anyone. It was also one of the birth places of The Fashion Creative Collaborative Group. Suzie had already been around the world as an international model and knew how to model. Today as I write this, I have shot hundreds of models, but when I look back Suzy was one of the first and she owns it, as one of the best. Sometimes I meet up with her for advice on many things and I'm glad to have her on my contact list. The last time we met up she showed me how to do an Instagram story. It's still the only one I've done. Did I mention she makes the best scones? And she's a business woman running her own bikini label called Salt? This girl can do anything.

    I always smile when I think about Piimio. Her wild, rebellious, lively, passionate self. She's honest. I enjoy knowing where I stand with her and she will never hide how she is feeling, she will just be. Like in this photo. I can hear her talking, and every sentence starts with "Oi". Like "Oi Shontz, look at this. Mum gave us some fejoas!"She's got a husky voice that sounds brilliant when she sings Valerie. Piimio is an actress. One of the many that I know but with her, I do believe she will go far. She's got the drive to make it and I've seen her acting. It's real. I still have a friendship bracelet on that she gave me in Rarotonga over a year ago. It was to say thank you, I guess for being me. I've never taken it off. I'd be more than happy to tell everyone about the time I met her and the story about the hot chocolate. But, I can feel her rolling her eyes already. hahaha. She will probably remind me of when she kicked me in the head and broke my glasses:) Love you Piims. Model - Piimio Mei

    Mathilde is the french girl I met in a cafe. I remember she asked if I was a professional and I said "No". I like being the underdog and to be honest I don't make my primary living off photography. I could if I shot weddings and family portraits but fuck that. I would get so bored. I guess that's how I know I'm a fashion photographer because I do get a kick out of it. I love the color of her sweater and her eyes. The movement in her hair.

    I didn't get to know Saraya. She was very quiet. I think for a moment she opened up enough for me to snap this pic before we went our own ways again. Thank you for that. Model - Saraya Mepham MUA - Ania Scott Butterflies - House of Em
