Halloween Photo Shoot

It is 47 days till Halloween and I am ridiculously excited! As a lover of all things spooky, I like to do a Halloween shoot every year. I’m looking for a team of a make-up artist, hair stylist, stylist and female model to take part in this year’s Halloween shoot. If you’re interested, either send me an email or contact me via Facebook. It’s going to be electric! 


Last year I teamed up with the gorgeous singer and model Maya Clarke and exceptionally talented make-up artist Sophie Hichisson. I was inspired by the Mother of Parker Crane from Insidious 2, because even though she was terrifying, she was beautiful too. Maya was transformed into an evil ghost roaming the old and lonely cemetery. From this simple concept we were able to create a spooky fashion spread as well as a moving image to tell the tale of the ghost.

Here are a few photos from previous Halloween photo shoots.

What does “Into The Future” mean to me?

I strongly believe in ghosts. I know it’s a controversial topic, a lot of people don’t believe and won’t believe until they are presented with compelling evidence, or seen one themselves. About three years ago, I started watching the TV show Ghost Adventures, mostly out of curiosity. I was shocked to find the startling amount of exciting evidence which I found hard to disprove. If you haven’t seen this program, I absolutely recommend that you watch it! I feel excited we have such wonderful technology that can capture ghosts efficiently, from shadow figures and apparitions to EVPs. My “In To The Future” photograph is based on my hope that more people will believe in ghosts, and we will have even more amazing technology to be able to contact them. The figure is of a ghost longing to be heard and seen. 

I hope you liked the images I took for the #KatieJadePhotoChallenge. Have a beautiful weekend! 


Light - #KatieJadePhotoChallenge

All this week I will be sharing the images I took as part of the #KatieJadePhotoChallenge. Today I will share my light picture with you.

What does “light” mean to me?

During week four you might have seen me discussing my favourite type of lighting with you - backlighting. My first thoughts were to take another backlit photo, but I felt I’d just be repeating myself. There is SO much you can do with light it would be a shame to not experiment. I started to think back to an episode of America’s Next Top Model (cycle 14) I watched, where the photographer put a piece of patterned fabric between the model and the light source. This technique works like a stencil and leaves a dynamic motif on the model’s features. Using this as inspiration, I placed lace between myself and the light source to create a pattern across myself. It was quite tricky doing it by myself as I had to work the camera as well as making sure I was framing myself correctly and placing the lace in the correct position to create the design.

Tomorrow I will share the last of my images from the photo challenge. Have a lovely day!
