Wedding Photo Shoot

Ive decided that I want to create my own fashion style wedding shoot.  Its amazing that I'm doing real weddings, but its time to push the bar and create something a little different. I want to merge high fashion with traditional wedding photography. Ive only ever seen it done well once and so I would like to be the 2nd :0) haha!

I have officially got myself a car for the day from a local company:  www.premierweddingcars.co.uk
I'm hoping that I can have this particular car for the day:

And here is the location I would like to shoot at. It's called Rottingdean and is just 10 minutes east of Brighton long the coast.

And here is my source of inspiration:  Photography: Zhang Jingna

I have my hair and make up artist sorted --->http://www.modelmayhem.com/385443

...though Im considering having an extra couple of models so I may need one more hair/MUA person on board.

I have 3 models though I need at least one more (male!) Though possibly could do with 2 more males and 1 more female.   If you are a model (male in particular), then please get in touch. Female model needs to be between a size 8 and 12. Male model should be slim, but not skinny and a minimum height of 5ft 9. And he must own his own suit that fits him properly!

I am in the process of sorting out the wedding dresses, accessories and flowers, but if anyone reads this and is interested in helping in anyway, please get in touch!  :0)

Quite an Interview!

So today I had a job interview to work for a jewelery company. It lasted for 3 and a half hours which is a record for me I mist say! I started off with the interview and then explaining my way through my portfolio. 

Then I was given a brief to complete in 2 hours. I had to set up my equipment and a light tent, choose a few pieces of jewelery out of a large selection, choose some props from a very random selection and photograph! Then I had to edit/re touch the images.

The theme of the shoot was 'Narnia'. Unfortunately for me I didn't know anything about Narnia! So I began by researching the film quickly and flicking through fashion magazines.  I was worried about my lack of time so I didn't research as much as I maybe should have done, but I did my best.  I cant say all the pics are Narnia themed, but I was so confused to how to do a Narnia jewelery shoot without knowing the story or film! So some of my end photos just happened to look good - end of!

Ive never shot products before, including jewelery, and a lighting tent - well Ive never even seen one before! It was certainly a steap learning curve but I'm really glad I gave it a go and I did my best. I'll hear next week whether I get the job as they are interviewing all week - eek!

Here are some of my photos from the interview brief:

Brighton Fashion Week

I am waaaay behind on my blogging! So here is just a really quick post. I was a model in Brighton Fashion Week last month which was an amazing experience! I made some awesome friends who i'm definitely keeping in touch with :0) And I made some good contacts for future work.  So all in all, a really brilliant week. Thanks to BFW for having me as a model! :D
