Bridal, Cowboy and GroupShoot.

Last Wednesday I modelled in Damien Lovegrove’s Bridal Fashion Workshop at the Manchester Hilton. I worked alongside Damien, Fab make-up and hair artist Emma Mackenzie and 5 other photographers. Everyone was lovely to work with and I had such a good day.

I haven’t done much Bridal work, so I was looking forward to the day very much, Damien brought along some amazing dresses for me to wear, I was very pleased indeed.

Emma Mackenzie provided some stunning make-up skills and hair-work for the day.

We shot in and around the Hilton in Manchester, including the very lovely Cloud 23 lounge and we had a stunning skyline view of Manchester from the very top, really cool :)

Here are some images from the day.

Myself and Adrian shot a video a while back, just for fun, we used the music from one of my favourite artist Kid rock ‘cowboy’.

Adrian worked really hard editing and getting it looking cool, It was so much fun shooting, I really enjoy the performance of video work.

Hopefully I will be doing a lot more video work this year and I hope to develop my acting skills too, as this is something I am very keen on pursuing in the future.

Adrian is also putting together a video workshop with myself the 20th and 21st of April.

Group shoot at Arcphotos

I was pleased to put on another groupshoot at arcphotos studio last Saturday, I was also very pleased that it sold out. I was a little worried photographers may not have been able to make it due to the bad weather caused by the snow, but lucky for me everything went smoothly.

I had photographers come down from Newcastle and Carlisle without any problems.

The group-shoot was fantastic, a great day with some really talented photographer’s, I did a mix of fashion, lingerie and art nude for the shoot and there was some great shots from the guys :).

My next group shoot at arcphotos will be held on Saturday 30th March-10am till 4pm £60 each photographer all day in.

If any photographer’s are interested send me a email to book on,

Here are a few from Saturday.
