Moving image

As i have to create a film for the MAC campaign i have been looking into the moving images of fashion photographers.
 The Nick Knight and SHOWstudio's tribute to Alexander McQueen is absolutely stunning and my favourite moving image i have seen to date.

SHOWstudio: Alexander McQueen tribute 


My next shoot is a campaign for MAC cosmetics. I am really looking forward to this as i have never really done a beauty campaign but i think that i will be quite good at it. I have created a slogan for the campaign which will be 'Make me amazing'. The idea of the campaign is as usual with MAC that the makeup transforms you into someone else. 


Watch this space for the result...

Rick Genest

Rick Genest is, in my eyes, the most fascinatingly wonderful thing to come out of the world of fashion this year. The face of Muglers Autumn/ Winter campaign 11, he is quick literally the most interesting face of fashion i have ever seen, and for that reason he 100% deserves his spot in the 'Look Book'. From 'homeless zomie boy' to the star of Paris Fashion week, Mugler's whole image has been completely transformed.   

It just inspires me that someone so unconventional can become such an incredible muse and star of the fashion world. Fashion doesn't have to be obvious and i think Genest is an incredible example of a living piece of art.

Final edits

These are some other final edits from the 'classic' shoot. 

Thursday, 10 March 2011


After a long few days of editing, i have got my final 8 images from the 'classic' fashion shoot. 

It began as a fashion shoot for the classic shirt and morphed into a self portrait, androgynous, fashion shoot. The clothes sourced for the shoot worked really well and i had amazing help off my sister, Rebecca Adams with styling and hair and makeup on the day.

The shoot

After a crazy week of planning, clothes shopping and organising, with help from my sister, i finally managed to do the shoot on Friday. I have decided that self portraits are definitely not for me but i am glad i did it and i think it will help my in future to understand how difficult it is in front of the camera.

Here is a sneak peak at what the images will look like.

After watching 'Gia',the film based on the 70's model Gia Carangi,
 for the first time in years last night i have been on a mission today to see her photographs. 

I have been searching the web for pictures of her. Gia died of Aids at the age of 26 due to abusing herself with drugs.If the film did her any truth she seemed like a beautifully lost creature and it is a tragedy that her life ended so soon. She is someone i would loved to have met. And although short her life was an important and meaningful. 

I think everyone should know about Gia Carangi and thats why i am posting this. I think she would have been a special person. 

If you read this and you don't know about Gia you can watch these documentaries on Gia. But i am telling you now this is about how it all went wrong, not the good bits. 
Part one
Part two

I never knew you but i think i will miss you RIP
