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!

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.

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!

 

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.

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.
