Mola spotted: Nelson Simoneau shoots Coco Rocha


We spot a 33″ white Mola Euro used by incredible photographer, Nelson Simoneau as he photographs model Coco Rocha for the May 2011 issue of ELLE Québec. Wardrobe is from the world renowned designer, Jean Paul Gaultier. His 35 years of fashion design will be on display at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, including over 120 haute couture dresses and ready-to-wear pieces made from 1976 – 2011.

In honour of this exhibition, ELLE magazine commisioned an exclusive editorial featuring pieces from JPG’s collection.

Below is a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot, as well as the finals…

Mola user: Matt Lanham

Today we head downunder to Australia to visit Matt Lanham’s stunning work. Matt contacted us recently thanking us for creating the Mola Setti which he …”really started to fall in love with…” when using it on a recent swimwear shoot. The mola he was using was the 28″ Setti.

In his blog post from this shoot Matt comments;

“I purchased a Mola 28″ Setti a little while ago, and was quite fond of it, but it truly came out on its own in this shoot. It was fantastic at brightening up the overpowering sunlight, without destroying the sun’s strong shadow shapes. It also helped to brighten up Chelsea’s face and make her look incredibly glamorous. I could not think of any other modifier I would have preferred to use on this shoot other than the Setti.”

and here is some of his images from the shoot.

thanks for the email and wonderful photos Matt!
