Posted in Fashion, Goth, Make Up - Savage Beauty, Model 40, Personal, Savage Beauty Photography with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 13, 2018 by Tallee Savage

I did some modeling for The Gothic Shop. This is the Black Brocade Bolero Style dress. The bolero is attached to the brocade dress and has a black ribbon border, puffed sleeves and adjustable ribbon lacing across the tummy. A very beautiful garment á la retro 50’s style accompanied with accessories and jewelry to match. Fabric is: 97% cotton, 3% elastane. tallee-sign

Princess Jasmine – The spirited princess of Agrabah.

Posted in Fantasy, Make Up - Savage Beauty, Movies, Personal, Savage Beauty Photography with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 13, 2017 by Tallee Savage

We had lots of fun doing this character from the Walt Disney film Aladdin. Always thought that this Jordanian beauty would pull it off splendid. And she did!

A little bit about the model. Nerjes Nana’s mother is from Amman in Jordan and father kurd from Iraq. They met in Sweden and Nerjes was born in Brunflo, Östersund on April 26 in 1997. After her parent’s divorced she moved to the U.S.A at the age of nine and attended school in Bakersfield, CA. After five years she moved to Jordan with her mother. Her mother is an arabic Muslim and always taught her about Islam, but the path of belief and practice was to be of her own choice. Neither Nerjes, her mother or sister wore a hijab. In fact Nerjes states that Jordan is a fairly liberal and a predominantly Muslim country. Some parts of Jordan are even Western and cosmopolitan. However, Jordanians have a deep respect for their King and Islam, and are conservative at the same time as they are liberal. After a few years Nerjes came back to Sweden and settled down in Stockholm and became a certified makeup artist.

This is about the time when I met Nerjes because she was in the same class in school as my daughter Adina. However her mother lived in another part of Sweden, so she stayed with us for longer periods of time. Telling us about her travels in the midle-east. One day we will have to travel with Nerjes to Jordan because through the ongoing troubles and conflicts of the neighbours Egypt and Syria, Jordan still enjoys a stable and peaceful environment to see. Petra, the historical rock-cut architecture and Wadi rum, the impressive red desert landscape and of course the Dead Sea. Just beautiful places and certainly on our To-Do list.

Historical Fantasy – 1500s and 1700s

Posted in avant-garde, Fantasy, Fashion, Goth, Make Up - Savage Beauty, Savage Beauty Photography with tags , , , , , , , , on October 3, 2017 by Tallee Savage

The mismatch in the historical aspect of the look is intentionally a mixture of the different centuries between the 1500s and 1700s. We don’t have to be so picky all the time ;)  We did however still stay within the Marie-Antoinette field. The beautiful dress is made by model Victoria Lovelace.

“Hairy” fashion (Neo-Baroque)

Posted in avant-garde, Fashion, Make Up - Savage Beauty, Savage Beauty Photography with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 27, 2017 by Tallee Savage

Neo-Baroque fashion – For this look you can’t go half heartedly. It’s about opulence, drama and ornate like gilded filigree and embroidery. Influences are from the renaissance era. Love it! This photo session with Adora Batbrat turned out to be quite ”hairy”. And actually first time I actually need to comb, braid and spray an outfit :)

In a wink it was gone! Now it’s only one year until next time. I really can’t complain though as my chilean/american christmas lasts for three beautiful days. Same procedure as every year. Only this year we were 18 people, one more person with my sister Violeta’s and Roger’s baby Yindi Lo. It was nice, time of peace and good cheer with all political talk left aside (this year). It’s not easy being the chatelaine I tell you, it takes me a few weeks to prepare everything and when everybody leaves after three days I look like a troll doll (penntroll). The house is now quiet and as I sit in front of the fireplace relaxing, I do find myself missing everybody. I really LOVE having my big family around me <3

tallee-signI hope you all had a marvelous, wonderful, restful Christmas too. Here are some photos I took while doing our christmas photo sessions. First out is my daughter Adina.

A session with Fine Art Nude model Jasmine Sundström. A girl with many passions, but what I like the most about her is her bright and joyful way of seeing life in general. Always conducting interesting debates, open-minded and eager to learn. Extremely easy to work with too.  Here is a previous session from last year if you’d like to check that out as well. “Androgyny Fashion

We had an Easter dinner with both sides of the family (24 people). Conveniently on the same date as my daughter Adina turned 17 years old (Selfie pic below).

Lots of vegetarian food. No, we don’t care about the traditional easter foods. We eat whatever comes to mind that day. My contribution this year was a vegetarian coconut milk stew with spinach and chickpeas and vegetarian meatballs. It took me and my daughter Elizia hours to roll them and it was frustrating at first as they turned out square and flat before we got the hang of it. My son Tim’s Västerbotten’s cheese pie was undoubtedly and unanimously the most popular easter dish this year.

Swedish Union Magazine for “Performing Arts and Film”

Posted in Make Up - Savage Beauty, Savage Beauty Photography with tags , , , , , , , , on March 20, 2014 by Tallee Savage

This is a photo session I did with my sister Amanda and her hubby Björn. The photos have been used for promotion of Independent Kostym who has the largest collection of costumes for professionals in Scandinavia.

The photo of my sister is now featuring on the cover of the latest issue of the Swedish Union Magazine for “Performing Arts and Film” (Teaterförbundet för scen och film) among other photos and projects we have done together and including a big interview with her. You can read how she and her colleagues work in a fabulous place that have dressed the Scandinavian Film and Theatre Industry since the 1930’s. How Independent kostym offers both rental and manufacturing of the costumes for film production, television, theatre and corporate events. With over 1,600 square meters in Stockholm. The staff has experience and knowledge on costume history and costume design and they are experts on realizing the ideas and visions brought upon them for all kinds of productions. Amanda tells you more about her work as a costumiere and life at Independent Kostym. It is in swedish folk… Thank God for Google Translate :D

Understanding women

Posted in Make Up - Savage Beauty, Model 40, Savage Beauty Photography with tags , , , on March 12, 2014 by Tallee Savage

“I don’t hang out with girls because they’re dramatic bitches. I prefer to hang out with guys”. Recognize that sentence? I do… that was the way I felt for many year when I was a girl. Girls could be so harsh, mean and jealous towards each other. While boys encouraged teamwork, girls saw trouble when playing more than two person at a time. Always leaving somebody out. Bickering, criticizing and talking behind each others backs. I never understood that :( So it just made it simpler for me to hang out with the boys. Climb trees and doing other exciting mischief. Over the years I have thought a lot about that. Wondering if maybe there is an unrealistic role and expectations set for girls. Instead of teaching them to work as a group to lift up and help each other. Women tend to have the need to look down on others of the same gender, while boys are taught to be strong, independent and self-confident.

I read somewhere: “Don’t try to understand women; women understand women, and they hate each other.” And honestly, I think the mentality and hatred for other females might come from within. It’s easy to hate one another if you are not content with yourself, I guess. I often hear chicks talk about others. Saying things like “Who does she think she is?” Negativity, judgemental, put-down mentality, criticizing, undermining, undercutting each other.. you name it! Thinly veiled jealousy when seeing other women stepping up an claiming a level of entitlement they can only dream of. An entitlement they either don’t know how to, or don’t feel entitled to claim for themselves. The uncomfortable truth is that some women still feel equivocal about other women’s success. Kicking away the latter rather than offer a hand to aspire. Instead of standing united, being positive and strengthen each other. I thought we were nurturing by nature. But I’ve noticed lots of times that’s not the case at all.

Anyway this does not apply to everyone of course. Just a general perception. But loving ourselves and loving each other is a very good thing. Be kind and generous and spread good vibes and energy. Support, help and encourage each other. And when you do find friends and colleagues who are supportive and understand you and have your best interest in mind – Hold on to them <3

tallee-signI had the pleasure of working with two lovely, beautiful, warm-hearted ladies last week, Sylvia Jansson and Maarit Psajd, while doing a photo shoot with them. I will show photos from that session in a few weeks. Sylvia has a new blog and she talks about this same topic. I’m humbled by the nice words she wrote about me. You can read it here >>>, but it is in Swedish folks ;)
