We were spoilt for choice when composing frames during our KILT clothing shoot at Nelson's Warwick House . I had so much fun combining two of my favourite things, fashion photography and historic places.

Admire Fashion July 2016

It was a romantic revival this month for July Fashion, with inspiration coming from the "beautiful age" of Belle Epoque which was the name given in France for the period of history which went from roughly 1871 to the start of world war one (1914).

It themed in well with this months up-cycling issue and got creative juices flowing. Hair Stylist Lauren Lewis crafted a high fashion dramatic hair feature in model Michelle's hair, while makeup Artist Indie Welsh applied dark burgundy lips which added to the drama. 

We shot at the stunning Nelson Castle - Warwick House, which completed the theme. Hope you enjoy the spread as much as we did creating it!

1940's Inspired Photo Shoot at Warwick House

I am very excited to share with you a photo shoot I did this Tuesday at Warwick House . It is an amazing venue to shoot in, originally called  "Sunnyvale" it was built in 1854 and is one of a few beautifully restored historic homes in nelson. I have always been interested in history from a young age, researching historic homes and places around the Nelson area. You can see some of my photographs of the places I have been privileged to visit and talk to historians and home owners about here at my History in Toe website.

The model Sheena Thomas a fresh new face, this was her first time modeling and I think she nailed it!  Tina of Just Costumes  supplied all the clothing and helped me to come up with a style - 1940s inspired to suit the venue. 

I had the expert talent of Michelle Longman on hair and Emillie MacRitchie doing Make-up. This is our fifth time working together we work so well together they are brilliant at what they do and enable me to create magical photographs. 

I would like to thank EVERYONE involved with this shoot, I am so happy with the results which include some of my favourite works to date!
