ANALOG | Mother

Photography

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

Leave a comment
Photography

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 […]

ANALOG | Fragmentary

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 […]

PHOTOSHOOT | Urban Wildling

Today Cate came over because she has been wanting me to try an Effy-Stonem-inspired makeup look on her. She says she’s been trying for a while but can’t get that half-smudged, slept-in eyeliner/eyeshadow look she wants. She was so happy with the results we decided to step outside and do an impromptu photoshoot which will be up on my Behance tonight. Video on the makeup coming soon!

The Haunting

My best friend and longtime spiritual sister Diana had the kindness of sending me over some photographs I took of her and her cousin Sara way back in the day in 2011. Back then I didn’t have a good camera, I didn’t wear makeup and my knowledge of Photoshop was rudimentary, at best. It was so much fun looking through these and thinking how I would have done certain things so differently know – especially […]

Calling All Beauties

Articles / Beauty / Photography

  While I’ve been away I’ve been silently mulling over an idea. I see so many collaboration requests on work forums and blogger Facebook groups, but it’s usually commercially inclined or based on a “like for like, follow for follow” basis. I want my follower count to go up organically, not because I liked someone’s holistic yoga page or gave their homemade soaps a shout-out on an Instagram picture! One of my goals for 2016 […]

I’m trying to work on as many portfolio shoots as possible so I have a larger body of work to hold on to when I finish my MA. Sadly, I don’t always have time to edit pictures right away and it’ll probably take me quite a long time to get to all of these. So how to resist the urge of showing them around? Well, don’t. Edit them on your phone! I just downloaded my favourite […]

Digital Diares – Paris Moments & Details

Photography / Travels

Travelling isn’t just about getting on airplanes, buying souvenirs and taking pictures (ironically). Travelling is about breathing new air, experiencing great moments, and bringing back with you not keychains but memories. These pictures are artefacts of history, bookmarks of a thrilling page in your life, not postcards to show others the local monuments and landscapes. They’re images to remind you of things you smelled, smiles you received, laughter that escaped you, delicious things you ate, moments […]

Digital Diaries | Paris Cityscapes & Architecture

Photography / Travels

For my second post in the Digital Diaries series, I have quite a few pictures of Paris, so I decided to split them into Cityscapes and close-up shots. I have posted a lot of 35mm film photographs of my September vacation in Paris with Gabriele on my Travels category which are far, far prettier but, as I said in yesterday’s post, the Digital Diaries posts will be mainly about quick, of-the-moment snapshots rather than beautiful images. […]

Digital Diaries | Brighton in August

Photography / Travels

I thought I’d start a new series for all the instant, not-very-well-thought-out snapshots that I take with my tiny little (and not very powerful) pocket camera. I have a little Lumix that I carry with me literally everywhere – even when I’m out shopping – because I am a firm believer in capturing moments. I know nowadays you can do everything with a smartphone, but it’s so much easier for me to organise everything into […]
