Dolls ‘n’ Divas – Miss November

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

I listened to Guns ‘n’ Roses nonstop when their ‘Appetite for Destruction’ album came out. It influenced my life so much and I can still listen to it today without it even dating. Anyway, where was I…. I watched the lighting and stage moves as I didn’t want to miss a thing the next night with my camera. There are not many gigs I get excited to the stomach about shooting, but this was definitely one of them. The next night off I went with my camera, collected my pass and wandered into the photo pit and stood in front of Slash’s pedal board setting my camera to the lighting at the venue. I stood there thinking things couldn’t get more perfect, and then it occurred to me. I was never going to get the “Classic Slash” picture, […]
