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. 

MEETING INFLUENCERS AT LONDON FASHION WEEK

I worked with the company, The Apartment (@theaptmt) for London Fashion Week, 2016. The Apartment is an exclusive space for influencer's to come and get pampered with designer items, create content for their social media, have a photo shoot with the Comb guys, whilst connecting with other influencers. My role at The Apartment varied: I helped create the space (literally building furniture, organsing rooms and creating flat lays for bloggers to create content about) but also capturing photos for the social media page and helping to host the events.  

London Fashion Week was both stressful, but enjoyable! I networked with a lot of bloggers and have already booked photo shoots for the October and November period, so watch this space and even check out the tab 'commissions- blogging' to see the latest shoot photos.
