After the studio shoot for Karl Bowman’s 2014 Collection the other week we all went for a drink to celebrate and to talk about future projects…

I love a good photoshoot and I love working with like minded professionals to create something special, but I hate having my picture taken which is why I choose to work behind the camera. I normally get a little on edge when I notice a camera lens waving in my direction, particularly when I’m working and trying to concentrate, so I normally politely ask that I’m not photographed. After all, who wants to see my fat head in the middle of a picture?!

Last weekend I was called in for a day in the studio to shoot the Look Book for the Karl Bowman 2014 collection…

Earlier in the summer I got together with my regular co-conspirator Tommy Martin, ably assisted by Katie Johnston, and model Antonina who Tommy was keen to work with. We discussed a few ideas and came up with a plan to head down to Lacy’s Cave near Little Salkeld on the banks of the River Eden.

Photographer Tommy Martin about a shoot day at the derelict Newsham Park Hospital in Liverpool, which has previously been used as an orphanage and asylum. Without any real time to make use of the venue for a fashion shoot we had to put our thinking hats on to come up with something different, but how could pass on the opportunity to shoot in a derelict Victorian building?

With every intention of regularly updating this blog I seem to have failed miserably this year, so I’ll be going into 2014 with the intention of being much more proactive in doing so. It is not like I have had nothing to write about either, there has been plenty going on, and excuses have ranged from “I don’t have the time” to “I’d rather be painting faces than talking about painting faces”, but excuses are just that with no real substance to them.

There always seems to be a lot of misinformation about good skincare from magazines, bloggers, retail outlets and even salons. I recently came across a blog post from a beauticians promoting an anti-ageing skincare range that had no SPF and contained known skin irritants such as Rose Flower Oil.

One of my most recent photoshoots was at the Struts Studio in Carlisle, with photographer Mykle Struts & model Antonina. The studio is a veritable Aladdin’s Cave of costumes and props with a warm welcome and refreshments on hand, and there is even enough Kryolan to make any make up artist squeal with glee.

It must have been around March time that there was a huge furore about certain cosmetics brands changing their policy on animal testing, seemingly so that they could export to the Chinese market where animal testing is required by law. This is beautifully summed up by MyBeautyBunny.com, but it’s not specific to the brand mentioned, there are many, many more that have followed suit including all of the brands owned by this particular brands parent company.
