'Holiday Muses' - Town & Country X Lara Jade

I’m excited to share my images from my second collaboration with Town & Country magazine and Lara Jade.

I travelled to New York to shoot this in late September, for their December issue. Lara the amazing Longchamp AW18 collection. Our location for the shoot was The Shops at Colombus Circle and Bluebird London.

I love shooting in New York, there’s always such a buzz around the city that feeds my creative energy.

Blogosphere Issue 16

My photography featured in the latest issue of Blogosphere Magazine. I’m happy to see that I was credited in three different sections.

Firstly, I was featured as one of their photography inspirations, picked out by guest photography director, Kaye Ford. The image used for this was my portrait of model Jessica Megan.

My portrait of blogger Em Sheldon was then used for her interview feature.

Last, but not least, they also used my images of a L’Oreal blogger event, in the Blogosphere Events section.

ELLE Russia X Giles Andreae

I had the privilege of shooting a portrait of Giles Andreae (childrens author & creator of Purple Ronnie and Edward Monkton) for ELLE Russia!

The portrait was to be included with a feature on fathers who also successfully work with children, as the series featured people who lived in Russia, America and the UK they needed a team from each country to photograph them so that they could eventually all look part of the same series!

The photoshoot took place at Giles's writing studio in Oxfordshire so on the day I met Melissa from ELLE Russia and Elizabeth from ELLE Uk at Paddington to catch the train out to Oxfordshire.On the train we had a closer look at the other photos that were already shot for the series and discussed our ideas for the images we planned to take with Giles!

We met Lara Himpelmann our make-up artist & Suze my assistant for the day at the train station, from there Lara drove and the rest of us got a taxi to the location!
When we arrived we met Giles who introduced us to his son Jackson who would be at the shoot and his daughter Freya was on her way back from school!

Melissa and Elizabeth began by showing Giles the clothing they had so he could chose what he would be wearing - and also a selection for Jackson to chose from when he arrived. Whilst they did this Suze and I set up a temporary studio and the lighting for the photos!

When everyone had got their selected outfits on and were ready to shoot Lara did some light make-up for Giles and Freya and then we begun shooting! 
My aim was to keep everything quick during the shoot to keep Jackson from getting bored - so we worked quickly talking to them throughout the shoot.
