The Great English Roadtrip – Stonehenge

Photography / Travels

Now this was the one thing I had been absolutely adamant about seeing on this trip, so I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. I did have a tremendous allergy attack while on the field, so I’m guessing I don’t handle the local Salisbury flora very well! It’s actually quite small when you get there, a bit underwhelming, but the landscape is absolutely gorgeous and you really feel the weight of time. There is something […]

The Great English Roadtrip – Wilton

This is it! We survived! So back in the beginning of June, I went on a road trip through England with my parents, from the 12nd to the 19th. We drove through Salisbury, Glastonbury, the Cotswolds, Dartmoor and Cornwall. It was absolutely amazing and I adored the trip, I had so much fun even though we were always rushing in the mornings and evenings – we changed hotels every night, always got to the hotel […]

So when Cate asked me to take some pictures of her wearing a pair of very 1980s-themed leggings, I couldn’t help but ask her for something in return. I’ve never done a more “out there” makeup look on myself or any of my friends, or anywhere outside of makeup school, to be honest. And I have never used neon or bright colours for eyeshadow on myself or anyone else, ever. So this was the perfect excuse. […]

It’s that time of the year again when Caterina from Kateidoscope.com asks me to take pictures of her for her blog, and I decide to do her makeup to match her clothing. I’m quite shocked at how well this look turned out considering it was completely unplanned – I just knew I wanted to use yellow. Everything else was decided as I went along with the brush. Makeup look details, explanatory chart and products list coming […]

One Day of English Summer

If there’s one thing I’ve learned during my time in the UK is that if the sun peeks out of the clouds for one day, everyone will run out in shorts and flip-flops and sit at the beach having beer or sunbathe in parks. I decided to do something different take my 5D Mark III out for a city-spin. It’s mostly my work, filming and studio camera, so I’ve been using a half-decent Lumix for snapshots, but […]

Guess who got a new film camera. Yes, this crazy girl. I am so absolutely in love with the Minolta X300. I’ve always heard wonders of Minolta lenses, but not owning one of their cameras I couldn’t really try. Luckily the owner of my local Kodak retailer has taken a liking to me and set this particular baby aside for when I received my allowance as he’d seen hearts pour out of my eyes as I tested […]

Urban Wilding II

When Cat and I did the digital Urban Wildling photoshoot, we did three things: digital photographs for me and 35mm photographs for the both of us. So yes, I was lugging around three cameras. I finally got back the film I used (click here to check out some of the other photographs from that particular film) and they turned out even prettier and more charismatic than the digital shots. I am not a big fan […]

ANALOG | Mother

Back home it’s Mother’s Day today. We don’t have a fixed date for Mother’s Day; instead, it’s the first Sunday of the month of May – which this year is actually May 1st! I wrote a card for my mum and bought her a little gift but considering the distance and how slow Royal Mail can be (we’re quite spoiled with e-mails and WeTransfer nowadays, aren’t we) she will probably only get it sometime during the week. […]

ANALOG | Down The Rabbit Hole

There is an entire underground world hiding beneath the simplistic, strong and open architecture of Newhaven Fort. The entire labyrinth of tunnels and the rooms they lead in and out of is so incredibly fascinating! I would recommend anyone who can afford a day trip to Newhaven to go on the amazing adventure that is exploring all of these mysterious pathways. Since these pictures quite clearly tell a story, I will let them do it by […]

I’m back after a tremendously long absence with the first of a series of analog photography posts! I’m finally getting excited again about creating images and capturing scenes. For the first time ever in my many years of having fun with 35mm cameras I am finally starting to take it more seriously, and I’m thinking more about capturing certain angles, moods and sentiments more than taking a ‘nice snapshot’. So I think this is the […]
