Meet the Ladies – Makeover + Shoot Day #2

We had such a fun time on the 2nd Makeover + Shoot Day! If you are on my Facebook Page, you would have seen teasers go up over the past couple of weeks. Ceri, Amber and I had such varied looks to work with; a classic 40’s/50’s style, casual rocked up look, vintage gothic, alternative lingerie and a classy high fashion style shoot. Here’s some of my favourite pictures from the day They all look absolutely stunning! Wouldn’t you agree?! I really do love to put on these Makeover Days, especially when I get to photograph some ladies that book, and it’s their first time in front of the camera for a professional shoot. To see the transformation and their confidence boost is one of my favourite things. We will be running another one next year. Wow hasn’t time gone by! I will put an announcement up soon with a poster for the next Makeover + Shoot Day. You can join me on my Facebook Page as well. I’m bowled over to see it has hit over 3,500 “likes”. Thank you :) Hope to meet some more of you next year! Mx

Live: Rival Sons in London

I had heard some great things about Rival Sons; that they have been named the next Led Zeppelin. That’s some quite big shoes to fill. Monday night, they played the Electric Ballroom in Camden. I’ve photographed many bands at this venue in my career so far – from Shinedown to Fear Factory, but this was the first Rock ‘n’ Roll show. A different vibe, and (I think) Sold Out crowd that erupted with applause and cheering as they came on stage and went straight into ‘Keep on Swinging’. My first impression. WOW. My second, “Oh yeah, I’m here to take pictures!” Singer ‎Jay Buchanan‎ looked like a cross between Steven Tyler, Rod Stewart and Mick Jagger – the guy has serious style. His stage presence, enigmatic and his fancy footwork matching his vocal ability. I was definitely loving his shoes! I looked around at such a wide range of ages in the audience getting into the music – the kids as if they were literally witnessing rock ‘n’ roll for the first time and lapping it up. Rival Sons have the complete package, and there’s no ignoring them. I had also heard Jimmy Page was in attendance…wonder what he thought. […]

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 […]
