Film, bed and me…

I had the pleasure of working with Brendan Gara at my home last wednesday. Brendan shoots with Film camera’s only, no digital. I have been shot with film many times and I really love the quality it brings to an image. I spoke to Brendan about why he likes using film so much and for him it is the overall process that suits his style and the spontaneity of developing the film for the final image.

The shoot was to be natural in posing and looks, nothing too posed but capturing me being sensual and free.

All these images were shot in a little spare bedroom at my home, using just natural light.

I think Brendan’s images are just beautiful and I would like to share them with you and please check out his work

Liverpool Street Fashion Workshop

I was so happy to be back in my home town of Liverpool last weekend, it’s always nice to catch up with friends and family as-well as fitting in some work in between.

Myself and Adrian put on a Fashion workshop in Liverpool on the Sunday, we used a few locations near the Albert Dock and then went across the River Mersey to the Wirral. We shot in a very cool location that Adrian had found the day before. The location was some old work yard that was probably something to do with the docks, it is just about to get demolished, so we had a great chance to get in there and use it with permission from the site owners :) 

We wanted the styling for this shoot to be simple and chic with clean lines but still having an urban feel to the looks.

It was a great day of teaching and all the photographers worked really hard and came away with great images.

Here are a selection of images Adrian took on the day as demonstration shots…





If you would like to join us on any future workshops or 1:1 tuition days why not get in-touch or visit the website

The New Classic

Hello everyone…Hope your enjoying the bank holiday weekend :) I’ve got a couple days off myself, enough time so I can do the cleaning, washing, shopping and being a normal person before I head off to Holland next week..yay.

I have had so much fun working the last 2 months, it’s been a little full-on… however I have enjoyed it immensely. I have even got to work alongside some other beautiful models which has been fantastic and I look forward in sharing the images with you all soon.

Going to keep this one short and sweet and share a lush fashion story by the talented Jamila Photography.

We shot this set earlier in the year and I am so pleased with how it has turned out. I always say you can’t go wrong with simple styling, some people have said to me ‘why do you wear suits and black a lot?’ well …because it looks good ;)
