Those of you that guessed the band from my last post with the tiny section of the Blasphegram on the initial teasers – well done! Seventh Circle Artworks are delighted to release this Limited Edition piece today! Limited and individually numbered to only 33 pieces, this is a formidable chunk of solid sterling silver. Hand crafted and featuring the iconic Blasphegram on the top, and 2 carved goat heads either side. Weighing approximately 50g this is not for the faint hearted!

Seventh Circle Artworks in Rapture

On October 1st Seventh Circle Artworks will be releasing a piece of jewellery commissioned for a legendary US metal band by one of their biggest fans. This band have been at the forefront of extreme music for over 25 years and continue to push the boundaries of that genre.  Seventh Circle Artworks are honoured to have been chosen to create this Limited Edition ring, and, as their photographer, I too share in their excitement having seen and photographed this masterpiece. The ring will be strictly limited to just 33 pieces. Each will be individually numbered and presented in a custom made, ebony case featuring the band logo in silver on the lid. More will be revealed in a few days prior to the release, including detailed product images, but for now the above and below photos are for you to feast your eyes on. Mx

Happily Ever After?

What do you think would happen if fairytale characters met up to create a new story? Do you reckon they would get along and be friends? I was booked for a super fun shoot in the forest by one of my regular clients, this time as a birthday surprise for her friend. They dressed up as Snow White and Alice in Wonderland. Their story went something like this Mx

Makeover + Shoot Day #2

YES! We are back for another fun day which I’m so pleased about. The last Makeover + Shoot Day was a lot of fun, and I loved to see the ladies so happy with their hair, makeup and pictures. If you missed it, you can read all about it here. The next Day is November 18th at the same location – Murder Mile Studio. Here’s the poster for it If you’re after a simple portrait shoot with a plain background, or a completely different look entirely with one of the many great studio settings, you can’t miss this opportunity. It would make a great gift for a loved one, friend or family member, or even a treat day for yourself! Guys, I include you in that too, as it could be a treat for you when you get the pictures ;) The £140 fee includes: Pre-shoot consultation with me to make sure you get the shoot, style and look that you’re after. Studio time in the setting of your choice, glass of red or white wine (or non-alcoholic drink if you prefer) as you arrive at the studio, your hair styled by Ceri and makeup applied by Amber, half hour […]

Vienna Calling

A new alternative clothing store will be opening in Vienna on Halloween, and I had the honour of photographing the fashion campaign for the store decor, advertising and website. I loved being in the studio for the 2 days, and had 5 of the best London alternative models to work with. I worked with Ceri on hair for the whole shoot and Stacey doing makeup on the 1st day (Stacey worked with me on the first ever Dolls ‘n’ Divas Playing Cards back in 2009). The clients now have the many, many contact sheets and I should be hearing from them very soon with all their final choices. So difficult! I couldn’t leave you hanging on without any teasers. So, I don’t do this very often – if at all, here’s a little teaser of the raw unedited images from a few of the contact sheets. Can you see what a kick-ass day that we had?! The store, I’ve been told, will be the first large alternative store in Vienna and is more than 4000 square feet. It will feature clothing, shoes, a tattoo parlour, jewellery, makeup, piercing studio and loads more. The owners like to dream big and they […]

Hello Colour!

My friend Laura is in town! She’s over from Los Angeles and we always make a point of hanging out and doing a shoot together. The above picture was our last hang out/shoot. I was 8 months pregnant and we rocked a shoot in my home with a failing smoke machine. Like this :) This time, Laura wanted to update her portfolio, and I also wanted to shoot with her for a piece of advertising – you will see that very soon. My work at the moment seem to be inspired by the weather and the colours that it brings. The sun has made an appearance here in the UK, and that’s fine by me. It means I can have an excuse to get a little girly with my photos, which happens not so often with the genre that I work in. Hello colour!! As always, Laura is super fun to shoot with. She is one of the few people that can work it with a keytar, like she does in her 80’s band glam punk rock band ‘Ankh’ out in LA. If that’s not enough, she’s an endorsee of Roland. Laura told me of her ultimate ambition involving Steel […]

The one with the Fence

When it comes to location shoots, the weather can be a photographer’s best friend or worst enemy. London-based groove metal band L Sol Tace booked me for another promo shoot after a bit of a lineup change and a debut album in the making. We had previously shot in a dark venue and I said to the guys that it would be great to go to an outdoor location. They got back to me and said that near their rehearsal rooms “there’s this fence that’s kinda cool”. I laughed! Cool, a fence. Sorted! The weather that week was abysmal. Typical UK you may think. Actually, even worse, as by this point we would be basking in a little more sunshine than this. (Not edited at all and taken on my iPhone) I started setting up, the guys had a litre bottle of Jack Daniel’s in hand and they had already had a few beers during rehearsal. We kept watch on the weather and had to quickly grab everything and run inside the rehearsal rooms at the first sign of rain. It reminded me of this scene from Wayne’s World But with rain instead of cars obviously. Turns out, the moody […]

Meet the Ladies – Makeover + Shoot Day!

All of the ladies that booked on the Makeover + Shoot Day held at the end of May have their chosen images so I can now share them with you all. It was a really great day, the sun was shining (that mini heatwave that we had) and it was nice and cool in the studio. There’s nothing worse than having your hair and make up done and it all melts in the heat, especially with the added heat of the studio lighting. I got the lovely ladies at Vintage Patisserie make some delicious cupcakes with my awesome logo on as treats for everyone. Don’t Didn’t they look swish?! Eaten in seconds! My team and I (Ceri Cushen on hair and Amber Erlandsson on makeup) loved all of the ladies ideas and looks that were booked on the day. All very different. We had an Urban/Pop solo artist with a hint of Bollywood style, 2 Pin Up styles, lingerie and latex shoot and a high-fashion crazed asylum style shoot. SO much fun. Here’s some of the pics from the day Half of the ladies had never had a photo session before, ever! The feedback received was so nice. One lady […]
