Getting me to do fashion shoots…
…usually involves a bit of arm twisting if I’m honest. I’m primarily a wedding and portrait photographer so unless it’s a big shoot with professionals throughout I tend not to touch it.
With fashion and commercial shoots in particular the whole shoot is only as strong as the weakest component. The make up artist, stylist, models and location, not to mention the photographer have to know what they are doing or else it can all fall apart.
With the Annabelles Wigs shoot we were at the Daniel Galvin Salon in London. This is the biggest salon in Europe with celebrity hairstylist Lino Carbosiero sorting the hair, Joey Bevan handling the styling, Amy Prifti on Makeup, Holly Higgins (Uk and Irelands next top model 2011 finalist), Katie Green (Special K girl plus many others), Claire from Annabelles Wigs (overseeing everything) and myself on the Camera we made a great team.
The day started early, 5.30am to be exact, finishing at 6pm but you know what? It was amazing. We all got on famously well and nobody fell in the way of anyone else. Claire bought Pizza (thanks Claire) and we pretty much had the whole downstairs of the salon to ourselves.
I loved the shoot!
