Portfolio production has started with clothing designer Wyte Phantom. I did my first outdoor location shoot of the year on Thursday with a model I have worked with in the past Michelle Etherington and a new male model Hariison Wild. The theme came from 'Interview with a Vampire' and I noticed whilst editing that there are other influnces coming through from my hero Jan Saudek in terms of the colouring in the finished edits! To have a look at the new images visit the Alternative Fashion page.
The second show of Fetish Rocks at De Bees music bar in Winsford, Cheshire last night was a big step in the right direction in terms of acts, guests and vibe! Feedback from guest had me really touched...stating they felt at ease with the other guests and loved the attention to detail, music and general atmosphere. Was awesome to discover people had come from out of the area to attend the event and said they would definitely return! I was overwhelmed by the effort that guests made with their outifts. Jess Brown won the photoshoot first prize with her post apocolyptic inspired outfit, with Annette gaining second place with a gothic/burlesque ensemble and Fer gaining third prize with his steampunk/gothic feel attire.
Lauren Astles dedication to Fetish Rocks does not go unnoticed and as always is a pleasure to watch. Her new burleque inspired routine last night was enjoyed by men and women alike!
Our new edition to the team and compere, Atalia Versace, was a lovely welcome to the event and narrated the evening with a little humour and plenty of style! Lisa Loki's creations for face and body art went down a treat generating much interest from the guests. We also had Jess handing out treats to guests! Big thank you to all the bands Kalashnikov, Will Garner and Deadbeat Echoes, that played. Everyone worked really hard to make the night work.
I love the fact that the team I am working with are also very creative bringing new and fresh ideas to the table for outifts, routines and props. The next event which the date is TBC in April will have a 'Mad Hatter's Tea Party' theme and we already have plenty of ideas for the decor, dresscode and acts.

Well I bought the Canon 600D in the new year and I have to say I don't know how I ever manged with my other Canon powershot! As much I enjoyed using the other I am really enjoying the results of my new toy!
I have posted some new images to my Conceptual page and Portfolio production page from a few commissions I have had using my portable studio including a shoot with a new model - Nadia Giugliano.
I have also been busy preparing edits from a shoot in Blackpool at Saints & Sinners, which will be previewed for the first time at Fetish Rocks - an event I run in Cheshire, combining live music, visuals and pole routines with themed dress code, to provide a different night out from your average event! The next event details are on the news page. There is also a selection of promotional shots of Lauren Astles - resident dancer for Fetish Rocks on the Events and Promotional page!
So I have been really busy and it doesnt stop here! There are exciting plans to work with a clothing designer local to myself - Wyte Phantom! Together we have plans to produce a whole set of conceptual images starting on 23rd March with a new male model also!!! so keep tuned in to hear more about our plans!
I also attended Dr Sketchy's Anti Art School on behalf of Alt Fashion to take photo's and review so will have more published work soon also :)
