Here are some pictures from yesterday! They are a follow up to the Bristol graffiti post I posted a few weeks back. Its all part of a feature for Religion magazine, focusing on Bristol’s style. The pictures above were taken at BS8 on park street, an independent clothes shop selling vintage clothing as well as small high street brands. It’s a great place to go if your after something original.

Sponsors include Electric London and Ten image, lead make up designer – Naomi Lake.

A look back and a look forward

Fashion, Fashion photography, Music, My photography

(So this week I’ve been working on several different features for my magazine. I don’t post everything I do on here, only snapshots of parts of my work. I get all my ideas through past and present magazines I have enjoyed reading, plus many different ESTABLISHED photographers. I suppose if someone is rigorously going through my blog that can become a bit confusing and some people might start getting very bizarre Ideas, especially if they’ve got a screw or two lose 🙂 It’s always nice when people take a lot of interest in my blog)

I am really excited about the Glastonbury line up… even though I’m not going for definite. I have got tickets on the re-sale before, and I will again!

 

Next week I’ll be doing some more shoots around Bristol, and hopefully get some street style shots in there. I’ve also got a few exciting written features lined up for the magazine! I’m really happy with the work I’ve done so far, but now getting a bit panicky about the deadline…

Here are some more pictures I have taken over the last few weeks. I’ve got another shoot lined up next week!

This shoot was all about clashing colours with lots of inspiration from alternative fashion sites. I also wanted it to have a slightly dreamy effect.

This was a beauty/portrait shoot I did outside for a separate feature. It was so cold shooting this!

Thanks for reading, any questions just ask me. No crazies though!

Some quick snaps of Bristol’s graffiti

My photography

I’ve just been out photographing Bristol as part of one of the features for my magazine. It was absolutely freezing outside today, my hands were so cold it was hard to operate the camera sometimes. Here are some of the snaps I took, I still want to photograph Gloucester road and have a go at some street style pics here as well.

Day in London: Shoreditch

Fashion photography, My photography

Last week I took a trip to London with my friend, to take some photographs for my uni project. The day went really well, although I may have got a bit distracted at the start because we met in Oxford street….

We made our way to Shoreditch about mid-day, thankfully the weather was good. I’ve never been to Shoreditch before, in fact i’m probably a bit clueless when it comes to a lot of London areas, but I really liked it and found it to be very inspiring. There are a lot of vintage shops one in particular called Blitz.

I loved this cupboard! 

Blitz was huge, if I had more time I would have stayed and probably spent a lot of money in there but we were already running short on time. It also had a coffee shop which was cute, definitely recommend to anyone visiting around the area.

Taking photographs of people in Shoreditch was fun, everyone was really friendly and most people were happy to have there photograph taken.

I will be going back there at some point this week to finish my project off. It’s turning into a very expensive year already! Hope to update you soon.

Thanks for reading!

My day at London Fashion Week!

Fashion, Fashion photography, My photography

Hello and thank you to everyone who’s been reading my blog over the last month or so, I have been pretty busy. A lot has been happening, as it’s the last month till a begin my final year of uni! Now I only have a weekend and then uni on Monday!! I’m actually pretty excited…

Last week I got given an amazing opportunity to take photographs at London fashion week. This was given to me by my university as part of a competition for Canon. I was extremely nervous on the few days leading up to it but the day went really well, however I was very tired… I woke up at 5 in the morning! We basically shot two shows, one which showcased up and coming trends for Autumn/Winter and another for Issa London. It was so fun, something I would definitely be interested in doing again.

Here are some of the photographs I took for the trends show.

 

And here are the photographs from the Issa London show!

… and those were just my favorites. I did take quite a few images.

I really liked the clothes for the Issa show, especially the turquoise dresses at the end, the print is gorgeous! The metallic trend is definitely in this coming winter.

Hope you like the photographs and please don’t hesitate to comment on the post! Soon I will be doing a lot more editorial work as I will be back at uni so i’ll be posting  a lot more of my own photography.

Thanks for reading 🙂

Photographer: Ryan McGinley

Fashion photography

I’ve only just heard about this photographer, from reading this months British Vogue. He photographed the cover story featuring Sienna Miller, and the photographs are stunning!

Ryan McGinley is a New York based photographer who  started out as an art photographer before being involved in fashion photography. He became a figure of the New York underground in the early 00’s with work such as ‘The kids were alright’ 1998 – 2003, featuring him and his friends at parties getting drunk and having a good time.

Self portrait (Car accident)

” They were like evidence of whatever I had done that night because I usually couldn’t remember any of it”

He produced a short film for Pringle of Scotland in 2009 featuring actress Tilda Swinton, and began working more and more for fashion magazines and advertisements such as Pop magazine, Vogue Paris, Uniqlo and Marc Jacobs. I find his work really different and slightly alternative to a lot of fashion photographers. His photographs have a free spirit about them, and some of them slightly ethereal. Here are some of my favourites…
