Style Chine (Felicia)

I've met Felicia a few times at events, so of course we had to do a shoot!

This was our first ever shoot together, so we played around with different poses and ways to capture movement in the shoot. The best thing on a shoot is having a friendship and being able to bond over similar passions and lifestyles, since both Felicia and I recently became full time freelancers this summer! We also discovered new streets to shoot down and finding the cutest wine bar to end our shoot on a high.

Lauren Black

Earlier this year I started seeing photos of Lauren pop up all over Instagram and I absolutely loved her style! So after we bumped into each other at the SkinnyDip X Starbucks event we planned a shoot. This shoot was going to be lit as we both know the images we wanted to capture and it was even better exploring the east with her, as I usually shoot in the West. 

Lauren is also a model, which means she’s got her poses down to a tee and this made our shoot so easy as we nailed each photo! Check them out below!

Photoshoot with Miss Gunner (Ashley)

I discovered Ashley’s Instagram earlier in the summer and by chance she attended The CLCK’s London Fashion Week event at The Ivy (where I was photographing). So of course we had to do a shoot! I love Ashley's vibrant style, as each outfit includes small sassy details that are great to capture, especially the pink ruffle bell sleeves! Not only that but she's amazing to photograph and we both share the same vision on what we want the photo to look like!

Make sure to check out my Instagram for more shoots with the Australian babe, here.

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.

Sing Gentry (Gurj Sohanpal)

Gurj and I have been planning to do a shoot for so long! So what better way to do a shoot that is dedicated to his birthday! Hence the reason for the red balloon in the photos. The shoot was a collaboration with the fashion brand, NEXT, which is why Gurj is kitted out in the brand. 

If you don't know Gurj has the greatest collection of suits I have ever seen! Check out his Instagram @singhgentry to see how he styles his suits along with being jealous of all his 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 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.

Debut's Mixer

I went to the second Debut Magazine Mixer event and networked with models, make-up artists, designers, singers and other photographers. It was a great environment to socialise with people in the industry who are roughly the same age. For the past year now I have worked with well-established people in the creative sector from photographers, stylists and CEOs of creative brands and therefore connecting with people who are trying to break into the same industry as me is quite nice and reassuring that I’m not alone.

On the night I indulged in their fancy pink strawberry cocktails and fruity cupcakes. Along with getting a free magazine to celebrate the launch of their second issue and a treats bag filled with skin care products and mini badges. Also please excuse the iPhone quality photos, I was to attend this event not photograph for it.

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.

DEAN CHALKLEY

This year I had the opportunity to work with the photographer, Dean Chalkey. I helped out on shoots with him for brands, such as Hush Puppies and Jocks & Nerds and meeting artists, such as  Richard Ashcroft ( the lead singer from the band, The Verve). The best part on working with Dean was the fact he photographed my favourite singer, Amy Winehouse! Funnily enough the photo I used on my cover photo on Facebook (years ago) was the photo he photographed! I would constantly ask questions about Amy to Dean, such as "what was was she like?" and "how was she to photograph?".  Chalkey never failed to surprise me about facts about Amy or the fun energy she brought on his shoots.

On one of our last meet ups I photographed Dean in his office using his quirky Fuji camera, that's why I only have this poor iPhone quality instead. 

HENRY HOLLAND

I was lucky enough to attend the interview between Monica Beatrice and Henry Holland. The talk was about his SS17 collection of House of Holland and to celebrate his 10 years of being in fashion. I had to share his Instagram post, as I still find it crazy that Rachel (@theaptmt work mate) and I built that room. It took us 3 days to create and it proved to be a great success, as it became the bloggers favourite room! 

Henry Holland was so down to earth, he explained how he got into fashion, his party life with the model, Agyness Deyn and how he came up with the tee slogan shirts that ultimately defined his brand.
