Capturing golden hour – that delicate time frame just after a sunrise or before a sunset – is not an easy feat. Fortunately, we can rely upon one of the best in the game, Steve Fan, to do it for us! Steve’s shots are among the most beautiful as they get, and his technique for lighting leaves us mesmerized. On top of that, his personality is equally as golden; our models continually rave about his down-to-earth nature and great directional advice, making him a favorite to work with.

Scroll through to see all the gorgeous looks of Alex, Bridget, Polina and Taylor as they are transformed into radiant silhouettes amongst soft meadows and edgy coastlines. Thank you, Steve for your stunning creations!

A favorite photographer among our models- and all of us here at Nous HQ- is the one and only Lucas Passmore. His photos are unmistakable: think simple, vulnerable and tastefully sexy all at the same time, which is no small achievement! A master at bringing out the strongest attributes and fierce confidence of every girl he works with, when he’s not testing you can find Lucas shooting for some of our favorite brands like Rails and Chloe Oliver or on the pages of magazines like Bisous, Angeleno, Cosmo or even Maxim!

Lucas’s funny, vibrant and energetic personality is incredibly infectious to everyone around him – ironically, it’s kind of a contrast to his sultry photography style. His ability to capture beauty in it’s most pure form continues to amaze us, so we can easily say that our obsession with Lucas isn’t ending anytime soon (but, we’re more than okay with that).

Thank you Lucas! You have taught our girls so much and provided them with valuable experience that has helped them be the successful women that they are today. We’ve seriously enjoyed the past few years of working with you, and are looking forward to many more to come.

“If I could describe my style in a single piece of clothing it would be a white cotton dress.

It is romantic and comfortable.

I do love being weird and wearing something whimsical or exotic.

Turbans are one of my favorite accessories.

It’s just fun to play dress up every once in a while!”

Playing in the sun like a meadow fairy, Alex Long (@allotree) glows in this editorial shot exclusively for Nouszine by photographer Steve Fan (@stevefanfotos).

Shot on a perfectly sunny day in Malibu, California, Alex and Steve had endless space to play. There was no one around, and they got to spend hours getting the sunlight to shine through her hair just right.

We spoke to Alex for a little behind the scenes on the shoot:

Nous: How much planning went into this shoot?

AlexThis shoot was really easy for me to get ready for. Because it was outside, I knew it would be pretty low maintenance for my hair and make up. I spent a couple hours going through my closet  making sure I had enough options. My entire trunk was full of clothes, so I probably over did it!

N: Are there any problems that come up when you shoot in nature?

AThe bugs. That’s it. I can handle almost anything else but the bugs, no. Other than that, I love shooting in nature! I feel very comfortable and connected when I’m outside so getting “in the mood” isn’t hard.

N: How was it shooting with Steve?

ASteve is awesome to work with. He is very down-to-earth and low maintenance. He gave great direction that really complimented the location and was able to capture these perfect moments. 

Perfection, indeed. Check out the rest of the editorial below!
