I have been lucky to be teamed with Nelsons top fashion stylist Sonya Leusink-Sladen who has previously worked for Wild Tomato and is currently stylist for Admire Magazine. Sonya is very talented with what she does often offering 'Figure Flattery' workshops and writing as a columnist, not to mention she's also a mother and wife.
Every month she pulls of creative wonders collecting top new trends from around the area to display in Admire's fashion and product/still life sections. Sonya is always keen to go the extra mile to ensure our photographs are not just catalog work but quality high fashion images that can be works of art in their own right - influenced by magazines such as Vanity Fair, Elle, and Remix.
I learn so much working with Sonya we get on well and have become good friends supporting each other in what we do. We 'go with our guts' and as a fellow photographer friend of ours says we 'worship the light' we scrap it if it doesn't work and try again always aiming for better and most importantly we have fun!
Something that we some times do is create a 'Sonya Spread' which gives you an idea of what we get up to behind the scenes!
