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.

Working on my magazine!

Fashion, Fashion photography, My photography

 

 

 

So I’m still working on my Final Major Project which eventually will be a magazine. At the moment i’m trying to decide what should be the cover, however I haven’t taken all my photographs yet but it’s just to get the ball rolling! I chose the name Religion, because I think the word looks good and calling any new business ‘Religion’ makes sense if you want people to follow it. It also reflects the fashion trend of religious crosses on everything at the moment. I’m not religious!

Here are a few ideas I have at the moment. Of course it could change as I will be taking more photographs. Most people seem to like the 3rd cover down best?

New photographs, the end is nigh!

Fashion, Fashion photography, My photography

Hello, It’s been a while since my last post. I am currently only a few months away from 3rd year ending, which is pretty terrifying! Soon I’ll be trying to get a proper job…

At the moment I’m working on my final major project, which by the end of it I need to produce a whole magazine. The magazine is going to feature a more diverse range of fashion model, from body shape to ethnicity. The point of the magazine is not to fall into the trap of the rigid fashion culture which presents mainly skinny very young white girls as fashion models. Of course many magazines are not guilty of this, and a lot is changing in the diversity of fashion models. I also want to do features within the magazine that come from a more intelligent angle, as opposed to diet and celebrity features. I have never produced a magazine before, so it’s going to be a challenge, but I’m excited.

Here is my first shoot. The trend is monochrome, and it has a bit of an 80’s feel to it. Hope you like it!

Christmas and New year

Fashion

Hello all, hope your having a really good Christmas. Here are some of the beautiful presents I received this year…

Green tea soap, Eton Mess chocolates, Marks and Spencer chocolates, Elie Saab perfume

I recently handed in my proposal for my final major project. The project is based around promoting awareness for women with low self esteem, through fashion. I want to photograph women who have had problems involving self esteem, and show what a positive influence fashion can be, instead of some of the negative influences it has had in the past on young women. Here are just a couple of photographs I took for the proposal…

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted on this! Time goes so fast, and not necessarily when your having fun. More like when you have lot’s to think about.

2013 looks set to be an eventful year as i’ll be graduating from university, saving up to go travelling and god knows where i’ll be living! It’s crazy to think where i’ll be this time next year…

Now, I know it’s just gone present time, but there are still pieces of clothing I want. There are always clothes I want. Here is a quick list of things i’ll probably be buying when I get my loan…

Scenic Painting Print Umbrella Skirt

Skirt, £24.84 Romwe

Ice cream socks, £3.10 Nastygal

I will always want these but can never justify paying £75 for them. American apparel disco pants.

Last but not least I really want to go to Glastonbury. I didn’t get tickets when they went on sale because the internet in my student house is absolutely shocking. I’ll be ready and waiting at my house in Bristol with the much faster internet, when they go on sale in April!

Thanks for reading as always 🙂

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 🙂

New beginnings!

Fashion

Again, I have left later than I should to post since the last. I really enjoy blogging and hope to make it a much more consistent and regular pastime of mine now!

It’s only 4 weeks until I go back to uni now. I’m looking forward to it and also slightly dreading it… I think i’m probably the only one ha. It will be good to feel like i’m working towards something I love again, instead of putting in a load of hours every week at Primark. One thing that will be amazing this month is my paycheck! I’ll finally be able to afford clothes!!!! Here are some of the websites I’ve been stalking whilst eagerly awaiting payment.

Wulfrun Wedge Tan Leopard

These are from http://www.underground-cybershop.co.uk/ and I think they are awesome. They are a wopping £119 which is slightly expensive for me… although Urban Outfitters were doing them for £70 but only in a size 7 which I am unfortunately not. This site has a range of really cool Creepers, winkle pickers (not so much my thing) and Dr Marten type boots. I really like the Dr Marten ones as well especially these…

Ranger Burgundy Leather

Another site I can’t get enough of is http://www.romwe.com/. Literally, this site is a godsend! It does free shipping worldwide and the clothes aren’t even expensive. It’s really good for leggings, here are a few of my faves…

They also have all the galaxy print ones and a lightening bolt pair which I want to get.

Multi Point Spike Headband

This headband caught my eye as well, these are all over tumblr and lookbook. Honestly, go and look at the site and I guarantee you WILL want to buy all of it.

http://www.urbanoutfitters.co.uk is also looking good as always. This bag in particular looks like something I might desperately need soon…

Apparently ‘Ellie Goulding loves!’…

This dress is way to expensive but if you want it get it from Urban Outfitters not Asos because Urban Outfitters do it cheaper. I may have to just treat myself to it.

So there are just some of the things I might be buying soon. Knowing me I’ll probably forget about them and see something else and buy that instead! I’m no good with planning anything. I hope I don’t forget about them though.

Here are some Tumblr images that have inspired me recently! My page is http://hoyhoygirl.tumblr.com/ enjoy 🙂
