Journey home, Winter 2011

The trip home from through the Peak District is always beautiful, and today was probably one of my favourite journeys.

When the flowers grow

So today I had a second photo day with the lovely and talented Nathalie Donado. Despite the stinging cold air we had a great time darting in and out of overgrown flowerbeds and woodland, nerding out and nattering about everything from light to takeaways :D Nathalie's photos from our day can be seen here. I can't wait for more days like this! Shot in Sheffield, Yorkshire.

School Days

Hello, folks!

Back in October I was contacted by FAKE magazine and was invited to shoot an editorial for their winter issue. Of course my answer was yes! I shoot editorials quite regularly nowadays, but this was to be the first one I wasn't planning, arranging and casting for myself. It was slightly nerve-wrecking not knowing every last detail beforehand (I've definitely become a bit of a control freak when it comes to my photoshoots!) but it was absolutely worth it. I had an amazing day shooting in an empty shop unit in the Corn Exchange, Leeds with stylist and co-editor of FAKE Sophie Benson and model Zana O'Connell. Our wardrobe consisted of designs by Melissa Lee, Lauren Pharoah, Louise Payne, Rachel Broadhurst and Fiona Somerville. So, finally, here are the photographs! Hope you like them :]



And a little peak at the shots in the wonderful FAKE magazine - I love how they've laid it all out and the rest of the issue is fab, too. Well worth a read :] Click here to order a copy.

And, as per usual, some behind-the-scenes photos I took on the day of the shoot :]
