Charlie Baxter

To the more eagle eyed of you, you may recognise Charlie from the shoot I did with Last Night's Victory, who Charlie is also part of!
He contacted me to do his promo shots & cover for his EP "Bass, Beats & Broken Strings'

Charlie's music is excellent! It's not my normal cup of tea but I saw his set when I shot for Last Night's Victory live in Cheltenham.
His music just makes you smile, he has so much energy he makes you feel tired watching him and his entire set screams colour!

 This was our theme for Charlie's Promo images, bright, bold & completely in your face! I use my coloured gels for this first time and completely adore them!

For Charlie's more 'General' theme of Promo images we popped outside where nearby to my Studio there is some bright pink graffiti which served as a perfect background.

The Final Product! I'm super chuffed to have been the one to shoot Charlie's EP & Tom Kennedy did a great job on the Graphics!

Bristol Fashion Week SS'12

I love this time of year where we forget about the dark Winter days and embrace Spring/Summer with full force! I joined the lovely Gina Dyer at BFW this time, shooting some Street Style for the first BFW Bloggers Event at The Mall Cribbs Causeway - it was so lovely to see lots of gorgeously dressed pretty ladies!

We had the loveliest cakes and pink fizz before heading though to the show, where the lovely Gina bagged best seat in the house; end of the Runway, in the centre!

So Mark Heyes & Andrew Barton hosted the show, which was wonderful. I really loved the theatrical aspect to the shows, it was visually stunning with projections behind the Model's really giving you a feel for each scene.


I'm a very visual person so for me, it was wonderful! It was incredibly difficult to keep up with the ever changing lights but I like a challenge, and it worked incredibly well for the show!

Many thanks for the lovely girls who let me take their photo, and a huge thank you to Gina for letting me come along, and The Mall Cribbs Causeway for hosting the event.

To end, a very cheery summery photo of me & my lovely Assistant for the day, Rach before the show started!

Editorial; Midnight Colour

As we head towards Spring I thought I'd blog a bit of Colour!

I had a wonderful team for my Midnight Colour Editorial; Sarah S of Mustard Models (and Winner of Bristol's Next Top Model!) Make up by Elle Hitchens & Hair by Amy Harding.

We shot in the centre of Bristol getting quite a few looks and most people stopping to have a little nose, bless Sarah as it was utterly freezing but she did a sterling job!
