Street Fashion Workshop

 

 

  Hello Everyone,

Just dropping by to share some images I shot over last weekend in Liverpool and The Wirral on Adrian Crook’s Street Fashion workshop.

We had a great 2 days, the weather was rather worrying as it was predicted rain all over the weekend :( .However me and Adrian have done many street fashion shoots and we know to just go with it and work around the weather and also use it to your benefit.

Even though it did rain from time to time we still managed to shoot most of the day, using a mix of the streets and a derelict location found by Adrian.

We all came away with some great images.

These images are from Chris Sou who came over from Belgium to join us on this workshop.

Styling was kept simple, black and clean lines for the streets which also worked well for the derelict location, making for a great contrast.

Hope you enjoy looking through these images by Chris Sou and if you would like to join me and Adrian on future workshops please email adrian@gofototravel.com and visit Gofototravel.com

Thanks

Newton, Bayliss and Monaco…

I was delighted when all round talented Lizzie Bayliss asked me to model for her Helmut Newton inspired workshop which took place last weekend.

The workshop took place in the beautiful Sandon Hall Staffordshire, perfect backdrop for the Newton inspired images. Styling was kept simple, elegant and classy, mainly black and white clothes with some quirky accessories to give a surreal feel to some of the images.

I am a huge fan of Newton’s work and this style is right up my street, loved being apart of this workshop.

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…

Dropping in to say ‘Hi’…


Hey everyone,

I haven’t blogged in a while (feel like I always open with that line) Just been busy buzzing around working, catching trains, being glued to my phone and making the odd picture ;)

 Going to keep it short and sweet but leaving you with an array of some of my favourite images taken over the last few months…

So just dropping in to say …’Hi’…stay safe and hope you enjoy the images :)

Monaco meet Munich

A couple of weeks ago I went to Munich to model for Damien Lovegrove this was for 3 days of  Boudoir, Art nude and Studio lighting workshops.

I was initially planning to go to Munich a while back to work with amazing Radmila Kerl, a photographer who I met on Damien’s Fuerteventura workshop 2 years ago. Timing was an issue the previous years and we finally all came together again through facebook chat and a few messages here and there… and I was invited to fly out in March…great :)

It’s always exciting going abroad to model, especially with a team of people, there is a real buzz and excitement about working in a different country. You also feel a little bit anxious because you don’t know what to except from the people and you hope everyone likes you…however there was no need to worry at all as I couldn’t of asked to work with nicer people.

Even though I knew that I would be well looked after by Damien and Radmila, I didn’t expect to stay in such a wonderful hotel. The first 2 days of workshops we stayed just outside of Munich in the Leebreghorf Hotel in the Mountains. It was just heaven, right on the lake and over looking the most beautiful views of snow top mountains and hills. My hotel room was huge, the food was delicious and the staff  fantastic, just stunning.

The 3 days just flew and I want to say a big thank you to Damien for inviting me and for all your hard work, so grateful to you.

Thank you to the wonderful Radmila for looking after me and for just being an amazing person-hope to see you soon.

Thank you to beautiful Jessica for making me look good every day , I enjoyed your company so much and hope to see you again, maybe for Oktoberfest ;)

And to all the delegates who came and made it happen :) Thank you.

101 workshop with JRT Vintage

I have been working with John Tuckey for a couple of years now and we have had some great shoots, each one being different from the last. John’s classic style always remains in his work and his love for vintage and Hollywood styles clearly shows.

Working with John is always about getting into character, creating the correct style and getting the lighting perfect for that authentic look.

I am now delighted to announce that I will be modelling for John on his 101 workshop 4th April in the beautiful location of Earlswood, Warwickshire.

I sometimes do ‘DIY’ …..

Even though I have worked with some amazing make-up artist and hair/stylist, I have often done my own make-up and hair for shoots. especially the ones for private projects.

This is usually for different reasons but mostly because of timing and trying to arrange dates with other creative’s can be tricky, schedules collide so over time I have leant to do my own make-up to a good standard for the work I do.

One of the biggest compliments I have had on my work was from a commercial shoot I did in London last year. The photographer on the job mentioned two images I did with Stefano Brunesci and Adrian Crook. One was the ‘Dark’ Image and the other ‘Eye wear’ 

Dark

Eye wear

He said’ they are amazing images, who was the team on the days, I bet you had a whole team of creative’s working along side you to created those looks’, I laughed to myself and told him that it was just me and the photographer that was all. I felt quite smug that some of the work I have done is considered much more than it actually was.

I am a big fan of keeping things simple and not over doing it, I know how I can look my best and I am always learning new tricks and techniques along the way.

I did the make-up below last week for mine and Adrian’s DARK FASHION image for our upcoming workshop.

I did go a little adventurous on this which is not normally what I would do but I was very happy with the results and Adrian approved too which is cool :)  if Adrian doesn’t like something he tells me straight lol he is not shy about that.

So I was very happy with this look and I hope to do more in this similar style.

The power of the make-up brush.

‘I wish I was Old Hollywood’

I worked on this lovely Hollywood lighting workshop for Photographer John Tuckey earlier this month.

Any chance I get to do  vintage work I throw myself into it, I just love old Hollywood style of lighting, Hair, Make-up, style. It is timeless and beautiful and a style that can always be adapted to contemporary fashion.

 I did my own hair and Make-up for this shoot and Clothes were provide by John Tuckey from Various vintage outlets he has sourced. 

Images are by Photographer Tim Steele who attended the workshop day and he has produced some fabulous images I thought I would share with you.

Hope you enjoy.
