Behind the scenes on Samantha Powell’s shoot

Filed by Jack Yan/October 1, 2008/6.09

The weather is delightful today, but we had to wait till the late afternoon (i.e. after working hours) to see any sun yesterday during Miss Universe New Zealand Samantha Powell’s shoot. She was already suffering from food poisoning so she wasn’t in the best health, but was an absolutely wonderful sport despite our dragging her out. Douglas Rimington photographed, having flown back from Sydney, and Rebecca Connor of About You Artistry (and Miss Wellington 2008) did her make-up. Simon Wolyncewicz assisted us. Some of our behind-the-scenes shots are below.

    I am just writing to say that I would love to see more media attention on your pageant while it is concluding and just after it has finished. No matter what others say, I believe that the Miss Universe Pageant in New Zealand is one of the best run, but is lacking in the media spotlight. NZAPT pulled this off beautifully this year, and I think that you need to put a little more attention on the winner and runner up than you have done so in the past.

  • Thank you for your support and advice, Kate.
