Alt-Mu Magazine Interview

Hurrah I'm finally a cover girl! 

When I went to shoot with the awesome Scott Chalmers, he mentioned doing some shots for Alt-Mu Magazine, that could go along with an interview. 

Well, the magazine is out, and not only do I have a 4 page interview, but Im also on the cover! Click on the link to read my blatherings about the different things I do. Also the rest of the magazine is a great read, and particulaly well designed (I'm a real stickler for well-designed magazines).



I don't think I've shared the other images from the shoot here yet... even if I have, I love them so much I'll share them again ;)








PUBLISHED: Rebelicious Magazine

A month or so ago I teamed up with one of my favourite models, Jessica Abidde (of BINTM fame) to shoot some exclusive images for Rebelicious Magazine.


The theme of the issue was pin-up, so we decided to take a 1920s approach (surprise surprise), with the help of Cheyenne Raymond on makeup! I love the super thin eyebrows of the 20's, so Cheyenne worked her magic on Jess - don't worry, she still had her natural brows by the end of it ;)


We had some gorgeous lingerie and corsets from Kiss Me Deadly, Boom! Boom! Baby! and Velda Lauder.


Make sure you have a read of Rebelicious Magazine, as it's jam packed full of goodness without the need and one of your five a day. You can read it online, and soon buy it in print - my editorial starts on page 42. 


I've uploaded the tearsheets below, but you will need to read the online mag for the ability to zoom in!




And here is a bonus shot that wasn't used in the mag!

Tough Love

Now that we have published the new issue of Playful Promises Magazine, I can show the images I shot for the editorial! 

We wanted to do a different take on the Valentine's theme (which is, of course, a busy time for lingerie!), so went for a shoot in a boxing ring. I have to say, I've never felt so out of place! Somehow we managed to shoot this in 3 hours; I'm not entirely pleased with the lighting, but I made do. 

Models: Mamzelle Maz, Miss Miranda and Randolph Hott.



Miranda is the winner! ;) But we still very much love Maz too.


Playful Promises Online Magazine Issue


Have I mentioned before how much I love my job? No? Well I love it!

I have also come to realize how much I adore marketing, when given creative freedom. Working for a laid back company that encourages creativity is so inspiring and refreshing. I think that even in university I had come to understand that I wouldn't be JUST a photographer (for one thing, I needed something secure, and freelance photographer does not provide that unless you are lucky enough to hit it big) - photoshoots are stressful and it would be taxing to constantly come up with good ideas. My skills are far too practical and technology-based to be a true artist (in the sense of what an artist is now - coming up with the newest bullshit to sell their art); I wanted to improve my graphic design skills, use social networking, write articles and blog as well as shoot pretty ladies in pretty underwear!

We have some exciting things underway for Playful Promises, from Circus-inspired events (I'd love to run my own club with my partner one day, so this is a fantastic stepping stone), more photoshoots, more magazines and more ways to reach out to our customers in an exciting and entertaining way!

Yesterday I published the 4th issue of the Playful Promises online magazine, which I had been working on over the past 2 months. Our current AW11 collection is called Damascan Dreams, and as it is our Autumn issue, I thought I would theme the whole magazine around the East and, in particular the way the Eastern culture and traditions have filtered into the West over time. As we also have a new style of gift pant available, themed around Circus pin ups (complete with their own adorable striped tin), I also included Circus-themed articles and images. 

Articles include makeup tutorials, cocktail recipes, a review of the Boom Boom Club, an interview with the fire-eating, glass-bathing Missy Macabre and an article about the birth of bellydance in the East. I also shot bellydance sensation Leah Debrincat and, to go along with her interview, Missy Macabre in all her art deco/carny glory! I've posted some of the images below, along with a few screencaps of my favourite sections of the magazine - don't forget to take a look!


Thanks to Silvia Ribera (hair) and Alice Birchmore (MUA) for their work on the shoot with Leah!
