Natasha Ndlovu

Girl boss is the definition of Natasha! I met Natasha briefly when I was working at The Apartment for London Fashion Week and straight away I knew she was the one blogger who I wanted to photograph. Her style is so chic and she's so effortlessly fashionable. 

We started the day by doing a quick lifestyle shoot at Farm Girl Cafe, which is also where Natasha introduced me to the best Rose Latte ever, the coffee literally had rose petals in the mug! Then we proceeded to do some street style shots, where Natasha wore an amazing shoulder padded denim jacket. If you know me, then you know that I love a good denim jacket, I practically live in them.

Tangle Teezer at LoveBox

On the day Frank Ocean and Solange played Love Box, I got the chance to shoot for Tangle Teezers and Disney UK. (I'm not allowed to show the Disney photos due to the contract I signed, but I have linked their Instagram below). I worked with the Digital Fairy to shoot for Tangle Teezers and on the day I went around searching for fun hair styles to capture along with shooting their new brushes. Glitter, space buns and braids was definitely a consistent hair style along with sequin attires. You can view all the photos from LoveBox on the 'photography' tab. Make sure to check out my Instagram to see new upcoming shoots with brands and bloggers.

MARK LIVERMORE

I met Mark at The Clck event at The Sanderson hotel and straight away we hit it off, Mark is so down to earth and easy to get along with which is why I was so excited to do a shoot together and this one was in collaboration with the fashion brand, Reiss. 

Mark’s Instagram is all about minimal tones and attention to textures, so the new Serpentine pavilion design was the perfect place to hold the shoot. This shoot was one of the funniest, as if you saw my Insta-story we got lost! Which is no surprise coming from me, but also how Mark is so down to earth and easy to get along with. Make sure to check the rest out @marklivermore for his upcoming travels.

CLAIRA HERMENT

My shoot with @missclairaherment was nothing but LOVE! Claira is such an inspiration, as she teaches you body positivity.  When photographing new faces I always try to capture their personality and I noticed from Claira's Instagram that love was a recurring symbol, so for the shoot I brought along a red love balloon to capture this side. Also make sure you watch Claira's Youtube series, as it will be full of exciting adventures!

LONDON FASHION WEEK MEN'S 5TH ANNIVERSARY

This time I was invited to photograph the Songzio SS18 show, which was truly amazing! The soft atmospheric music put me in a dream like state, as the models with slicked back hair elegantly walked passed.Horizontal stripes definitely dominated the collection along with leather, embellished, open toed sandals. 

 

I also attended the St. James show, which was in the middle of Jermyn Street. The music was so lively that it created a party ambiance. What I really noticed from the show was how many times the models changed outfits! I know a bit random, but when you think about it a show lasts roughly 15 minutes and the models changed 3 times, so imagine changing quickly and looking so composed so fast!  Either way the collection was amazing and had a fun aspect to it.

THE CLCK

I’m now in the process of changing my Instagram, so I thought this would be the perfect time to write about being the photographer for @TheClck brunch event at The Ivy Café in Marylebone! The ClCK is a network that is based on all the best influencers capturing amazing style and is founded by the lovely, @iamshannonj. The event also included brands from Sweaty Betty to Swarovski and the best part was meeting so  many lovely, fashionable influencers who I still continue to talk to over Instagram!

LONDON FASHION WEEK 2017

I have now worked London Fashion Week three times in a row! The first time I was an intern and I helped host influencer events for Ego, Superdrugs and many more brands. Whereas the second and third time I was photographing street style and I was even the event photographer for @TheClck brunch (an amazing influencer group).

Each Fashion Week is VERY stressful, but also rewarding. There’s always a sense of haste, moving across different venues to capture unique styles in such a short amount of time. To the point that I have even jumped into a car with another photographer who I met 5 minutes before and being driven to the next location. (I know stranger danger alert, but in that moment all I could think about is I need more outfit shots!) Plus these strangers ended up becoming my friends and mentors (saved my friendships there)

I still find it crazy that I've photographed great people such as Yasmin Sewell, Daisy Lowe, Adwoa Aboah, Katy Perry and many more. The photo of Katy Perry was my most viewed and shared photo, it reached over 2,000 people on Facebook and it was shared so many times on Instagram and Twitter! Let's hope this year will bring more amazing opportunities.

MISSDEFIANT

I met the duo at the Debut Mixer and straight away we hit it off. I loved their flamboyant style, especially their glitter statement lips and it was great that in that one night we had already arranged to do a photoshoot that coming weekend! The shoot was in a Church in Acton and whilst they recorded the acoustic versions of their new songs, I photographed the behind the scenes. Watch this space for more upcoming shoots with the duo (Emily and Jordan) 

SEBASTIAN LILJEBLAD

Seb was a dream to work with, being a confident model and a business owner made posing in front of the camera look so easy. We toured around Notting Hill finding different locations to shoot in, plus it was great that Seb was not phased by my bad tour guiding skills. One of my favourite shots was when I captured Seb with the leaves. One, it was surprising that we’re in December and there was leaves still attached on the tree branches instead of being on the ground and two because I love capturing nature. A little bit of greenery can really brighten the photo. Throughout the shoot Seb said “Lets go Wild!” and it was pretty ironic that at the end of our shoot we passed a flower shop called ‘Wild at Heart’, which made for a nice send off.  

Sarah Mikaela

I met Sarah Mikaela from FramboiseFashion.com during London Fashion Week and since we share the same name (just a different version of spelling) it was no wonder we would hit it off. On the day of the shoot we toured around the streets of Soho capturing her emerald green attire: the top WonderBash in support of breast cancer and the gorgeous Gestuz velvet trousers that definitely caught people's attention. Sarah Mikaela was a natural in front of the camera and this was probably one of my favourite shoots to do.
