Shell and Catherine - Take 2!

Yesterday I took a road trip back to Cheltenham for part 2 of my shoot with Shell Clapham and Catherine Day.

For more info on their top secret project *click here*

Below are a few behind the scenes pics - not allowed to give too much away but I think the last one sums up the day.

And a big thank you to Matt Frederick - aka 'The Muffin Man' for his white chocolate and raspberry creations!

Filming in Oxford

On Wednesday I worked with Ian Smith in Oxford.

I've done some presenting and voice over work before but this was totally out of my comfort zone -  and I loved it! Ian was also testing out the HD capabilities of the 5d Mk2 (50mm lens)

Video coming soon...!

New Hair by Stage Door

Yesterday I worked with Ana at Stage Door salon in Westminster as her entrant to become a L'Oreal ID Artist - she did an amazing job and has been shortlisted!

As much as I still love having orange hair I'm thinking it might be time for a change now - any ideas?

Here's Ana and I (looking slightly startled!) at L'Oreal HQ after her presentation

Art Nudes with Binkography

Recently I have been wanting to experiment more with art nude style work. 

I spent the day with the beautiful art nude pro and photographer - Madame Bink / Binkography who showed me how it's done properly... and certainly put me through my paces.

Here are some photos from the day.

Blunted / Bridging the Gap

Check out London based music/creative blog Bridging the Gap (BTG) for a few of my photos taken at the Blunted Reunion/Xmas party in December.

There are rumours of funk/hiphop night Blunted returning to Oxford in 2011 - good times!

Covered in Plaster

Just got home from my first job of the year - and second ever body cast.

I worked with photographer and sculptor Robbie creating a cast ready for a freestanding spiral shaped sculpture, starting at my bum and going around my side, over my chest and onto my face (sadly I don't have pictures of me having to breath with straws stuck up my nose!).

Very messy day but lots of fun, will post a picture of the finished piece once I've got one.

New Year, New Blog!

With my sleep pattern destroyed and the New Year kicking I've decided to start a new blog.

The last one disappeared into the ether last year - taking with it all my behind the scenes pictures and tearsheets, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed this time.

I haven't used Blogger before so if you've got any tips please let me know.
