Pastels

Pastels

Last week I met up with the lovely Lizzy Perry (who helped style the Guise shoot last year - see here) to help her shoot the images for her final year project! I met up with her and our beautiful model for the day Carmen Reumers in a local cake shop after the make-up had been done my the wonderful Lydia Pankhurst

The theme for the shoot was pastels and as you can see from the first location the cake shop was a perfect match! After shooting looks one and two there we made our way to the residential area to shoot in front of some of Brighton's trademark colourful houses. Below are some of the final images!



And here are a few behind the scenes images as well!

Shoot that Witch

Shoot that Witch

For a couple of years now I've had a few locations in mind for shoots but never quite got round to getting anything up in order to best make use of them, however a few weeks ago I got in touch with the wonderful Shirly who I had worked with previously to help me out with putting the styling together for the shoot. A few mood boards later and an lots of work on Shirly's end we had a pile of clothes, a pile of locations and with a bit of social networking a pile of team. :P


As the locations and styling I had in mind for the shoot were so perfectly matched to the lovely Madeleine we asked her to work with us as well on this shoot, and I made my way to her flat in London a few Sunday's ago and met up with Madeleine and Shirly along with the amazing Irene (who did the make-up) and the fantastic Ronnie (who was in charge of hair styling).



After set up was done we hopped on a bus to our first location and began to shoot, unfortunately due to tube maintenance and slow buses we didn't quite manage to get to all the locations we wanted or shoot as many looks as we had originally planned too but as with London you can find a good place to shoot down practically every street and we ended our day with looks 3 and 4 around Wesminster. 

Here is a back of camera preview from one of the looks! Be sure to keep an eye out for the final images in a future blog post! :)

Closet at Coworth

Closet at Coworth

Last Tuesday I had my second shoot for the brand Closet Clothing, and in line with the previous shoot this one was also at a hotel, albeit rather larger this time! I was up at 5am to make my way to the town to Sunningdale where I was greeted by a driver branding a sign with my name on it, he drove me to the hotel and I was escorted inside by the staff. I thought I was out of place in Notting Hill haha, this was even more peculiar - oh to be incredibly rich! :P




After finding my way to the room we were based in I met up with Ruth and Bryony who had put the shoot together and Irina our first model. And a few minutes later Hannah the make-up artist arrived! While the prep was being done I scouted the area for locations and after that we began shooting!

Gabrielle who was working with Closet was also there helping out with the shoot and taking behind the scenes photos for us, you can see her behind the scenes blog post over on their website here! :)



And towards the end of the first half of the day our second model Ewelina arrived and before Irina set off we shot a couple of looks with moth of them together!



And then the last few looks of the day.


And here is a quick back of camera preview and an edit in progress! Be sure to keep an eye out in a future post for the final images! :D
