The Mirror Series- Ep. 3: Athens (h0mage Magazine) with Tegan Smith

Hey hey!

Time for another Mirror Series post? I think so :D

This week's episode is brought to us by a digital magazine that I downloaded onto my iPad (once again, don't know how I ended up on it but thank my lucky stars I did) and fell in love....and then had my heart torn in two because THEY DON'T SEEM TO HAVE GONE PAST ISSUE 1.

Be that as it may, the first issue still rox my sox over and over. It seems like it was made exclusively for tablet devices, but check this link anyway to see what I'm talkin bout! (

Interactive graphics, video-pages, links to behind-the-scene clips and interviews and sick editorials galore.

AND when I heard word that Tegan Smith, Cape Town-based photog extraordinaire was coming to Port Elizabeth, I knew it was meant to be. I've been a fan of hers for months now after first seeing her work on Aisha Baker's blog (Baked the Blog) who she's the official photographer for.

So I got in touch and told her about The Mirror Series and we made a plan to shoot one sunny (cold) afternoon! We shot 2 different looks, the first of which is inspired by this image from the editorial Athens in h0mage issue 1.


I immediately thought of putting a tomboy twist on it with a pair of leopard sneakers I pretty much live in and making the setting something a little more modern and edgy.

But the fun didn't stop there :P

Such an amazing shoot and Tegan is an absolute inspiration to work with! Check her out here-
