Behind the Scenes - At This Moment Shoot

Jane Heller is one of the photographers who routinely works with Twist Collective. You can see her lovely work in the magazine in Fall's ma belle guitare, and Spring's Better than Basic, just to name a few. You can find much, much more of her work on her website, or even get some for yourself from her etsy shop.


Hello everyone! Kate and I thought it would be fun to do a regular post of the "behind the scenes" of each photo shoot. The winter issue is out already but I always find it interesting to see how things are done. This series was shot at a lovely beach that is usually deserted in the month of September but to our surprise there was a bus load of kids swimming in the frigid water! Thankfully the beach was big enough for all of us.

Our wonderful model Caro was a real trooper as the cool winds blew in off the water. You might not know, but we never use professional models for the shoots. At times it can be really challenging to get the right pose or expression, but all in all we have been very lucky with the girls we find. Kate is the one who usually finds our models, either in a café, on the street or working in a pharmacy - she has no qualms about approaching people to see if they would like to model. Caro works at a local café where both Kate and I spend a lot of time with our laptops. This shoot went smoothly so I have no horror stories to tell. Stay tuned for more behind the scenes photos!
