Dinka got in touch with us as she had been asked to provide an image of her beautiful self.
Her portrait would be used in publications, literature and advertising, promoting beautiful women who have careers in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (S.T.E.M.).
The organisers wish to dispel the stereo types that women working in these careers are often 'nerdy' looking.
You may identify this dilemma with the 'Amy Farrah Fowler' character from 'The Big Bang Theory' who in her usual day to day career, looks very intelligent, but fits with this 'nerdy' stereo type.
How amazing does she look on a girls night out? Absolutely stunning! Stereotype banished!
So this was our brief for Dinka's photoshoot, she wanted both casual and glamorous portraits.
Dinka loved her makeover! "It's so lovely to be a girly, girl for a change".
We had so much fun, and Dinka loved the gorgeous portraits that we took.
One of her portraits has been featured in a deck of cards, celebrating women, on these fabulous career paths.
Well Dinka surely has done away with the stereotype of characters like 'Amy Farrah Fowler' from 'The Big Bang Theory'. Gorgeous and Genius!
