I am over the moon that IMIRAGEMagazine has published my photos of the wonderful Megan Rudling in the series titled Electric Eye. It couldn’t have been possible without the wonderful team Rebecca Morello - make-up artist - and Sophie Chittock - stylist. Between us we came up with four different looks to develop the story behind the shoot.
The shoot was based around fairy lights and three colours, blue, purple and pink. The concept behind this shoot is connectivity. The lights represent us as humans and how we all stay connected in a digital world. We follow each other on social media with an insight into each others lives, we have an electric eye on each other. However we often forget to speak to one another or make the effort to communicate because we feel connected by simply watching. It is important for the world to become connected, digitally holding hands like fairy lights on a string.
You can take a look at the magazine hereand purchase your own copy too! I’ll be posting photos from this shoot on my Instagram so make sure you take a look, and I highly recommend following the fabulous team as very are bloody brilliant!
I’ve now started a Youtube video where I can share some behind the scenes footage from photo shoots, retouching tutorials and so much more! I’m really excited about this and I hope you are too. Please can a look at my first video showing how I used masks to remove an object from a photograph.

I wanted my first portrait session of the year to be a self portrait. I wanted it to embody everything that I have learnt and loved from 2017. My focus was on colour. I have always loved colour, but come to the realisation that dark, rich colours are my favourite. I’m not sure why this hasn’t been obvious to me sooner, I pretty much wear black or deep red most days and when asked what I my favourite colour is I’m quick to describe the shade with absolute clarity. For my self portrait I chose black as the main colour, wearing only black and taken against a black wall. During 2017, I developed a love for using a hit of vibrancy through bold colour choices. Although subtle, I went for a bright lip colour to create a contrasting element, especially against my pale skin and hair.
2017 was a year filled with lots of fantastic projects. I hope 2018 has even more! I intend to push myself to the limit, throwing myself into new projects and working with new clients. I am very excited.
