Poster Giveaway Winner & Behind the Scenes!

Hello and Happy New Year! Hope you all enjoyed the festivities and celebrations! Just before Christmas I ran a giveaway competition – a chance to win a signed poster of Simone Simons who was Miss December in the Dolls ‘n’ Divas 2011 Calendar. I was overwhelmed with all your entries – well into the hundreds and all with the right answer ( I think maybe I will make it a bit more difficult next time ;) ). Thank you all for entering! The correct answer was of course Kathleen Turner, who did the speaking voice for Jessica Rabbit in the movie ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’. The lucky winner is Doug Yauch from Minnesota, USA. Your poster is on its way with warm wishes from Simone! Congratulations! — Just before I log off for the day, I wanted to let you in on some of the fun that we had in making the Calendar. A couple of collages of the ‘best bits’ once the serious work was out of the way….mostly! You can click on the images to view our silly faces larger. There will be a couple more pieces of news to come soon from the 2011 Dolls ‘n’ Divas […]

LIVE! Godsized at the Borderline, London

I’m still buzzing from the show last night! The last time I saw Godsized play was the 2nd week into their 6 week UK and Europe Tour with Black Label Society. Super stoked to be celebrating the end of year show with them and also shoot pics with drummer – Dan – on his debut show. They’ve picked up quite a fair few fans on their way around Europe, including a guy who traveled from Kazakhstan to see them here in London. I was honoured to meet him. Playing on the same night as Steel Panther, Motley Crue and Def Leppard; Godsized still managed to pack the Borderline and ensure it would be a sweat-fest, with fans singing and shouting along, along with plenty of opportunities to eat your neighbours’ hair as it was being whipped around! Let’s get down to the pics… (click to view bigger) The guys did me proud. Sorry, what was that? Motley who? ;) Set list for the night was: — Soul Taker Phoney Tough Fight & Survive No Reprieve Last Goodbye So I’m Told Still Waiting Heavy Load Brothers in Arms Walking Away Head Heavy Encore – Bleed on the Inside — Godsized will […]

Dolls ‘n’ Divas – Miss December + Giveaway!

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. To enter: Answer the following question: Who did the speaking voice of Jessica Rabbit in ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’? Please send your answers to dollsndivas@mariegc.com with ‘Simone Giveaway‘ in your subject header. Entries must […]

Fashion : Tristen

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
