Tiger dresses and fashion lusting

Fashion, Fashion photography, My photography

As I write this I am hungry. What shall I eat? I’m trying to cut down on cheese, as I do tend to put it in everything, although I could do worse. Apparently dairy can make you more intelligent, because it has Iodine in it. So that’s good I suppose. I’ll hold on to that fact.

At the moment I’m looking for a full time job, and there doesn’t seem to be any that provide more than an 8 or 16 hour contract a week. Either that or they’re all temporary! Frustration.

Putting the dairy and job stuff aside, here’s some fashion for you! This is one of my favourite dresses from Romwe and my all time favourite shoes from Underground.

The lip stick is from Topshop and the shade is called ‘Arcade’.

I have been lusting after some rings from www.emptycasket.com. Empty casket (if you don’t already know) is an online jewellery store, everything is hand made with a ‘grungey vibe’. Here are some of my favourites….

Rings £18

Necklace £10

Kitty ring £5

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.

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!

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 🙂

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 🙂
