Last weekend was my first show back in the photo pit since maternity leave. What a great return to live show photography it was too! I was shooting for Terrorizer at Wembley Arena, London, for the ‘Eighth Plague Tour’ – Darkest Hour, Devil Driver, Bring me the Horizon and then Machine Head to headline. Obviously I can’t show you all the pics but here’s a few sneaky ones. The rest will be in the coming issue of Terrorizer Magazine. It was a blast!
A little into December but definitely worth the wait! Simone Simons is the hottie this month and a great way to end the year on the Dolls ‘n’ Divas Calendar. My inspiration for this shoot was Jessica Rabbit from the movie ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’, with Simone’s striking red hair it was perfect! Using a still from the movie, we created a scene for the shoot too Simone wore a red satin halter dress from Vivien of Holloway and her was hair styled by Marino Lambrix. Along with singing and writing for her band Epica, Simone loves all things photography, fashion and makeup related too – she did her own makeup for the calendar shoot. You can check out her personal blog here. To celebrate the end of the year I’m having a giveaway! You can win an A2 poster print (measures 420mm x 594mm) signed by Simone – it will be the image of Simone sitting on the green sofa mentioned in the above post.

Hello! Last week was a busy week for me so there will be a few posts coming. To start with, I shot with Tristen. More of a fashion style shoot moving away from the alternative and retro style that we have done before. I love trying out different styles especially as we have worked together quite a few times now and am very happy with how the shoot went. Here’s a teaser, you can click on it to view bigger. Mx
Back in July I posted some fan art of my work with sweet friend Simone Simons, singer from Epica. I’ve had some more sent through varying from digital art, paintings, and pencil drawings. This one I just HAD to share with you. I love the simplicity and detail that just ordinary pencil can bring to an image. By Paz Patterer from Argentina. Thanks Paz!! Epica have just announced some dates for their 2012 tour with more to come! Mx
After the success of the Jane Doe Brass Collection launched in March, Seventh Circle Artworks and Jane Doe launched the Silver Edition this week. I’m a really big fan of silver and I love how the pieces give a different vibe when worn even though they are exactly the same design as the Brass. Alongside this the Crobar (London’s favourite rock bar in Soho) “Larry” Skull Cufflinks are now for sale Also, from Monday 14th November the Stone Dead Forever Eternity Ring will be available. Which I absolutely adore. You can purchase all of these items and more at Seventh Circle Artworks. Christmas is coming…. what a great idea for an original gift? Mx
It’s official. The clocks have gone back here in the UK – the nights will be drawing in and the temperature dropping as we prepare ourselves for winter. If you’ve purchased my Dolls ‘n’ Divas Calendar, you will be looking at the stunning and mysterious Amber Erlandsson (also know in in the alternative modeling world as Morrigan Hel). She is dressed in military inspired corset outfit by Velda Lauder. Amber fronts Metal band Nemhain and also runs the photo studio used for this shoot – Murder Mile. She’s a rather talented and fun person to be around! Amber’s hair styled by the wonderful Sherri Sue Liberatori from Diamond Dolls Boutique, London. This was one of my favourite shoots from the calendar as it explored the less girly side of the 50’s pin up modeling. I also can’t help but like the smell of a burning cigar! Amber was such a pro that we only needed one for the shoot, and thankfully the smoke alarms in the studio were turned off! Only one more month left to reveal now… I wonder who it could be? Mx
Just a little update to let you all know my latest published news… REVOLVER Magazine, (USA based rock magazine) has printed one of my pictures full page in their latest issue out this week – their yearly Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock issue. You may all recognise Simone Simons from the shoot I did earlier this year, with Simone wearing jewellery from the Jane Doe Collection by Seventh Circle Artworks. Alongside that, REVOLVER have a Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock 2012 Calendar which is available for sale now. Another photo I took of Simone features in their Calendar – she is centre spread, the month of June. Order your Calendar here. Each month has dates marked with important birthdays and events in the Rock Music world. Both of these items are the first major pieces of publication I’ve had in the States so far and I’m super stoked! Lastly, with the release of Machine Head’s album ‘Unto the Locust’, Terrorizer Magazine printed full page my picture of Robb Flynn. Machine Head have just started touring on this album and I’m very much looking forward to catching up with the guys here in December at their London show!
I spent my Friday night this week at my favourite photo studio with rock band DogState. The guys wanted some promos to go alongside their new EP release ‘War Baby’. Here’s a little teaser of one of the other shoot settings! The guys currently have the contact sheets to decide their final images, so after then I will share some of them with you all. We all worked really hard on the shoot but also had a great laugh too. I’m off to York tomorrow morning early for a little break but will share some pictures as I’ve been told that there’s some great architecture there. Plus I want to go to the Viking Museum too! Mx
