Working a nine-to-five in finance as well as a musician, Temy Lantiyana was inspired to create a portfolio with The Photo Studio Australia after seeing work online.
“I had seen their work around the web and I loved the creativity and felt my vision could be brought to life with them.” Says Temy.
Describing her a look as a “blend of edgy and sophisticated”, Temy was able to craft a portfolio that showed a wide range in both outfits atmosphere. From classic black and white shots, to colour images oozing with bravura, Temy’s background as an artist and African heritage informed much of her shoot.
“I’m an artist as much as I am African and I wanted that to be conveyed in the shoot, which was why it was a must for my Zulu crown to be featured.”
Temy pulls a lot of inspiration and creative energy from Rihanna, who shows constant versatility in her style.
“My creativity is really inspired by my culture and also Rihanna, because she is not afraid to shake it up with her looks.”
Temy hopes that she can inspire appreciation of confident women everywhere, acknowledging what it means to be a woman.
“I hope my pictures show that being a woman is to be versatile, sexy, powerful, majestic and demanding attention without a word of mouth.”
