SAFW

I live in Watford, just outside of London. I spend a lot of time in St Albans however, and this year has seen the launch of St Albans Fashion Week. There was in the SS time and there was one on Halloween.
I was invited backstage by the SAFW crew to photograph it backstage because of my experience at LFW

And a couple of my friends were modelling in the show so of course wanted me to take their pictures

SAFW has one main show which is held in St Albans Cathedral. Such a grand and interesting setting for a fashion show, and it goes on for much longer than I am used too (LFW shows maybe only last 5 minutes, at least that is what it feels like)

It’s such a great way to build the community and the high street as retailers are invited to show their products for the upcoming season, and local people/companies do the hair and makeup, the dressing, and be the models within the show

This season saw brands like FCUK and Hobbs show, as well as local independent stores like vintage shop Little Viking, The Dressing Room etc

Look below for a selection of snaps I took whilst backstage

LFW SS15

I am known for being backstage at LFW every season now and photographing what happens back there.

I used to shoot for Notion Magazine, but this season it got changed up a bit. I shot LFW backstage for World Duty Free Group as part of a SS beauty edit they would be putting together for next year

Below is just a small example of some of the images I captured this season. I was focussing on photographing the hair and makeup this season as it was going to be used for a beauty edit, rather than a general overview of backstage

Monopods are in Fashion!

Recently, Manfrotto asked me to write an article on the use of monopods in Fashion Photography.

Even though I am a Manfrotto ambassador, I have considered this such a great honour, and I have received some great feedback from it!

You can read it at the following link: Manfrotto School of Xcellence

It would be great to hear what you think about it also 🙂

The amount of exposure has been amazing. My own article has even come up as a sponsored, and suggested, ad on my own personal facebook. That was a treat to see on my timeline!

#Polaroids from #LFW

This season at LFW I had an assistant to help me take some polaroid images when I was backstage at LFW shows.
Here are some polaroids taken amongst the madness at Holly Fulton, PPQ and (my personal fave) House of Holland.
