Last Sunday I had an amazing shoot with Caitlin who as soon as I saw her modelling portfolio, I knew that I had to work with her. She reminded me of a model of the Pre-Raphaelite art movement, such as Elizabeth Siddal, with her long red hair and freckled, pale complexion. She’s a very peaceful, serene person, and she definitely gave my images a dream-like quality.
We decided to work on Caitlin’s first look in my apartment courtyard, sunbathing on the grass, which was much nicer than being cooped up in my little university flat, trying to work with bad lighting and little natural sunlight. We then adjusted her hair and makeup in the grounds of Derby’s Kedleston Hall – again in the lovely sunshine.
