Enchanted Garden

Enchanted Garden

If you’ve managed to take a peak at my ‘Enchanted Garden’ work in my portfolio, well here is what went on ‘Behind the Scenes’….

Shot in a fairy tale wonderland; full of winding paths, lily pad ponds, big old oak trees and hidden coves, this location was perfect for the enchanted theme! Shoot concept was created by Makeup Artist Sasha Cross. Having a definite shoot idea in mind, Sasha and hairstylist Nikki Hamilton transformed the model into an amazing enchanted doll. They did a fab job, both super talented girls!

Bringing my own ideas, my aim was to shoot something magical and create my own style in each scene . I was open to inspiration as it came – there were so many great areas of the forest and gardens to explore..!

Working with model Abby Munro was great, she had the perfect look for the concept. She was easy to work with and adjusted her look perfectly for each visual idea I had in mind. Good working with assistant Rai Bailey and thanks for
taking these fab pics for the blog!

Phew what a busy couple of months… Just got round to writing this post on my vintage fashion shoots for REVIVAL RETRO. Shooting for the lovely Ro at Revival Retro (www.revival-retro.com) has been fab, her shop and dresses are amazing! If you love beautiful vintage dresses and shoes inspired by the 1920s, 1930s and 40s you must go visit her shop on the top floor of Kingly Court, London W1

Shooting Revival’s dresses on different models has been great – very exciting, lots of energy, dance and movement from Ro and all models worked on shoots. One of my favourite shoots from the many, has to be photographing the 1920s reproduction dress from THE OSCAR WINNING MOVIE ‘THE ARTIST’. Image can be seen below, also printed in the Sunday Mirror Magazine, Celebs on
Sunday, 18 March for feature on Revival Retro. Model: Heather Darcy, MUA: Sasha Aleksandar


Been a pleasure working with MUA / Hair Stylist Sally Muira on recent shoots, great work. Thank you!
