Urbex Girl

Last Friday I shot with photographer Gary Price in Birmingham. Me and Gary have shot together on several occasions since 2013. It is always great working with Gary as he understands how I work and lets me add my own spin on the story we are telling but he still directs me into the perfect composition with the right mood.

For this story Gary suggested we do something a little more raw in fashion, not too posed but as if he is just capturing my character in her own world, a grungier backdrop…so a Urbex environment was perfect for this idea.

We used a derelict building which Gary had found the day before. I am not too sure what is was, some sort of factory maybe?? I don’t know but it was perfect for what we needed and just an amazing space…we could have shot there all day, so many area’s you could use.

The overall shoot was brilliant, loved working with Gary and also Alexei Svechnikov and his friend Pete who assisted on the shoot, thank you so much for an amazing day.

  Hope you like the images…

‘I AM WARRIOR PRINCESS’

Hello everyone

I am so pleased to bring to you these images from a fashion story we did a few weeks back. I am also stoked that they are now published on Stump Magazine in an exclusive editorial-i-am-warrior-nsfw

This day we shot 2 editorials, one was more fashion orientated (which I am dying to share with everyone) and ‘I AM WARRIOR’ being a  more fantasy/cinematic based story.

I worked with Adrian on coming up with the concept, we wanted to do something tribal and feral…a little nod to One Million Years BC but still remaining stylish and cool.  Bringing a character to life through the images, along with styling, hair/make-up and the right location was key.

Myself and Adrian found the perfect location, which could quiet possibly pass for a desert somewhere in America but no it’s in Wiltshire ;)

James Mcknight or The Dark Knight of make-up (as I like to call him) transformed me into a tribal warrior princess and was on hand at all times to keep me looking my best while in character. James make-up was amazing as usual and he brought the look together with skill and style.

The chain dress was made by Adrian’s fair hands himself.

 I have to say anything that is character based and dramatic is something I just love doing. I don’t get to do images like these ones often as you need a full team and there is usually a lot of planning that goes involved, it can take weeks or months in-fact to get the shoot off the ground. However they are always worth waiting for….

Hope you enjoy them.
