Monochrome Fashion

Back in September I had a lovely photo-shoot with my biggest creative team yet. It was windy and rainy for the most part of the day and wreaked havoc on my set and everyone’s hair but thankfully the sun did come out half way through the shoot itself! Big thanks to:
My models:
Jessie Jing
Natalie Kate
Geo McCondichie
Tasha ‘Boo’
My MUA, the lovely Razwana
Donna and her team from Bonce Salon
My lovely assistant Cali
and Geo’s boyfriend Chris who became an unexpected second assistant – he spent most of his time re-tying and draping fabric to the tree branch as the wind blew my set up apart! Would have been a disaster without him and Cali there!

Vintage Rose: Caitlin

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.

I can’t help but notice that while there are strong Pre-Raphaelite influences, a few streaks of Alice in Wonderland-esque fantasy elements came into the images too, which was completely unplanned, as well as a few less surprising Art Nouveau tweaks. The grounds were laden with flowers, and we made sure to make the most of them all in as many ways as possible.
