CHRISTY TOWELS & LIFESTYLE location shoot - Canterbury

10th & 11th October 2011 - Kent House, Nr Canterbury, Kent.

Today's 2 day shoot was in a fabulous location house down in the glorious countryside of Kent for Christy Towels, and their lifestyle range of bed linen, cushions, and luxury knitted throws.
The fires were lit, the beds were made and fresh home made cakes were on display, that mixed together with a fabulous crew made for a wonderful shoot!

I day Intensive Hair Master Class

Claire was a delight to work with, she is an incredible artist and just wanted to have a refresher day on certain hair styles and detailed up work - so I designed a day where she could fulfill her true potential - the images tell the whole tale.
I had a mid hair length model where I wanted to see Claire 'prep to perfection' before introducing any styling to the hair. My aim was for her to move promptly between looks which is absolutely vital on any commercial shoot!
Then on the 2nd model who's hair was much thicker and longer I wanted Claire to create :

*The tousled 'beached' look

*A shorter bob

*A 1920's inspired bob

*A detailed up style using all the techniques she had mastered: sectioning, back combing, curling, finger waves, barrel curls and victory rolls...

This day is ideal for anyone in the industry wishing to polish up their finesse.
You can also suggest styles you wish to Master and I will design a 1 or 2 day for you incorporating makeup and even a shoot!

Andrea Bocelli shoot with David Bailey, London

October 17th 2011

It was a gorgeous Indian Summer day and I headed into London for my regular client Mr Andrea Bocelli, who was in town for the day to shoot with renowned photographer David Bailey, at his studio in Clerkenwell.
It was one set up - of a classic portrait, before several interviews - then we were off to film 'Songs of Praise's 50th Anniversary' in Alexandra Palace.
