LFW AW13 Backstage Day 2

I have been slacking with my blogging of images from Fashion Week again!!
But there they are. Some backstage images from Day 2 at LFW!
These images are a mix from Vauxhall Fashion Scout, John Rocha, J. JS Lee and David Koma
All images were shot for PlanetNotion.com and Notion Magazine!


Scarlett from Leni’s MM

Some more un-retouched images from my Creative beauty shoot this week. This time of the model Scarlett from Leni’s Model Management.
Again, I feel that these don’t need any retouching, but I will be retouching them for the model’s portfolio as well as the MUA.

Make-up by Melanie Brown and her assistant Sophie Connelly.
I adore the buttons that they put onto Sophie and the gentle waves!
The second look we did which is the more natural make-up look definitely makes Scarlett look like the character ‘Jessica Rabbit’.

Again, I hope you like as much as I do!

Stacey from Leni’s MM

Un-retouched images from my shoot in the week. However, I feel that they don’t really need any retouching. I don’t like heavily retouched images anyway. I feel that you then aren’t a photographer but a graphic designer instead.
This is Stacey from Leni’s Model Management.

Make-up by Melanie Brown and her assistant Sophie Connelly. They created such great creative make-up and it was a joy to photograph!

I hope you like as much as I do!

Snaps of the fairytale day


Snaps of my shoot today!

This was my Red Riding Hood shoot for model Joy’s portfolio.

I was working with Rowenna Gill the makeup artist again and she created some magic on Joy indeed! Very strong and beautiful!

Such a great shoot in Hyde Park.

Keep looking out for the sneak peeks!

Corrie Nielsen

Corrie Nielsen was the first runway show of LFW AW12 that I photographed and it was definitely an exciting first show! To have a show with a tartan pattern somehow stuck onto the model’s faces and hair was amazing and definitely excited me for what else was to come during the rest of the week as it was only the beginning!

I have read somewhere that Corrie has been described as a similar and new McQueen and I can definitely agree there. However McQueen will never be replaced.

Carlotta Actis Barone

It is safe to say. Carlotta was my most favourite show to photograph and in terms of the clothing. She had a smoke machine go off at the very beginning of the runway which made for the most interesting show I have photographed, and then the clothes themselves were also lovely to photograph.
I then found out the whole collection was inspired by the holocaust which then explained the smoke machine to me, as well as the wellington boots that some models were wearing.
All in all, my most favourite show as well as favourite imagery to have been produced. I love the smoke effect I have managed to obtain in some of the photographs. It definitely gives the image mystery as well as some kind of scary effect.

Bora Aksu

I think Bora Aksu was the second show I photographed at London Fashion Week and I loved it. Everything was so beautiful and gypsy like. I adored the head-dress/makeup stuck to the models head/hair. It really intrigued me. However I felt the collection was more Spring Summer than Autumn Winter. Everything was pastelly and floaty which you normally associate with SS. I was definitely feeling confused, yet also inspired whilst shooting and watching the show.
