Give me Fuel, Give me Fire

In September, I worked at the London Tattoo Convention for Terrorizer Magazine. Covering the darker side of the arts and tattooing over the weekend, for a feature printed in the magazine I blogged about a couple of weeks ago. Performance wise, I was also very┬áintrigued by the Fuel Girls so I hung about for a bit to shoot them in between interviews. I have worked with a couple of ex-Fuel Girls in other shoots, but never seen them perform their routine in full. From pole dancing, ariel hoop, ballet, and urban dance to fire breathing and sword routines – it was all incredibly inspiring and sometimes breathtaking in places. Not to mention really beautiful tattoos too! I also really liked Cervena Fox’s ‘Queen of the Damned’ performance. Some of the pics were in the magazine, this one didn’t make it in and is one of my favourites. I highly recommend that you catch the Fuel Girls if you see they are in your area. Mx

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 […]
