Neil Buchan Grant captured beautiful girls of Jakarta with his Leica M9 camera. Neil an award winning photographer who is more into landscape photos went 3 weeks to Indonesia to take beauty shots in J-town. But what do you do if you don’t know any models and if you have no connection to “important” people? Neil discovered a web-portal called Model Mayhem where models of all levels of experience often seek out photographers who could help them develop their portfolios. Before he arrived he already got in touch with potential models and scheduled the shoots. Because Neil doesn’t speak Bahasa Indonesia he used his iphone image gallery to show the girls the poses.
After finishing the shootings he burned all pictures onto CD and gave them to each of the 10 models. The models ranged from a very professional girl who arrived with 10 fine dresses, 5 pairs of shoes and 2 large men, to girls he spotted working in bars who were clearly beautiful and luckily upon further enquiry, had a desire to be photographed properly.
