Monday’s Musings…

So the studio opened back up last week, and boy what a busy week! I had three portrait sessions and conference call with the States. I have been given the opportunity to be on the editorial team at Photofocus.com, so that’s pretty cool. But it means I need to write at least one editorial a…

In the studio with Alexia Frost

Just before my last workshop of the year, I grabbed an opportunity to take these shots of Alexia Frost (aka Silver and Spooky), of this recently re-discovered dress and horned headpiece. I have had them both for ages, I honestly completely forgot about them. A simple black background and a few simple props, mostly natural…

Summer Workshops – Creative Portraits

It felt so good, to be able to get back to what I love…teaching photography. I recently taught back to back Still Life and then I got back to back creative portraits. This workshop was actually sold out months ago…twice. Damn Covid stopped it. So glad I finally was able to run it for these…

In the studio – Harley Quinn

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend…right? That fabulous song from Marilyn Monroe in the movie Gentlemen prefer Blondes. With the red background and hot pink dress, dripping with diamonds.

This time with Alexia Frost, we have done so much to poor Lexi over the last few months and all in good nature, she has been an ice princess and a glam vintage princess, a fairy in pink! But at her heart she is a Gothic Model, so we decided to let her do her…

In the studio – The Red Queen

Again with Bec from Verdessa Fairy in the studio, this time as a very impressive, dramatic Red Queen in my famous (or is that infamous) red dress. This dress has been featured in so many different studio shoots. Seriously don’t mess with this Queen she is all steel-hearted! But Bec truly is a sweetheart, she…

Oceanic Mermaids

Last week I was featuring some of the art I created from a recent group shoot, 30 photographers and two models. We were joined on the day by Jess Ami and Jess Garrett (at least their names were easy to remember lol). We occasionally do these big group shoots, so that there is a central…

In the studio – Snow Demon

Alexia Frost…or just Lexie was so much fun to work with at our recent studio session, not only did she play the part of the Ice Queen, but also a Snow Demon. How cool is this horned headpiece? We created the dress from white jersey fabric and a silver belt I have and then added…
