The Bather





Hey all, just a quick post today as I've got to run off to an event I'm managing! Check it out if you're interested: https://www.facebook.com/events/871166009561257/
It's a fashion event showcasing the work of up and coming new designers and labels followed by an amazing after party with a special surprise guest DJ from Ibiza… and if that hasn't sold it, it's free entry with a free drinks reception at the start! ;) Mason House at 9:30, would be lovely to see you there!
Otherwise, come along to tomorrow's event at Cafe Kaizen: https://www.facebook.com/events/396804310474298/

Anyway, what I was actually going to discuss was this new set of self-portraits that I recently shot. I know it's simple compared to my usual stuff, but I wanted to try something different I guess… Plus, it was a sneaky excuse to have some piccies of my favourite new buy- this gorgeous Topshop swimming costume that actually marks a new era of daily swimming for me ;) Such a perfect form of exercise - super fun plus a highly effective full body workout!
Anyways, enjoy! ;)

Also, just two days ago I picked up this lil day-maker:
That exquisite masterpiece of a photo (which happens to be right next door to the Erdem ad) is one of the shots in my lookbook and campaign for Laura Apsit Livens! Super excited to see it in the Mayfair Times! ;)
Ciao for now,

ON MY WEST BEHAVIOUR



Today I'm bringing you a sneak preview of a very exciting collaboration with insanely talented up and coming rap artist, Ato Alexander. This is the first of many collaborative shoots I will be working on with Ato and the rest of the members of his OMWB movement as part of our ongoing photo campaign we're starting. 

At just 20 years old, Ato has already gained an impressive fan base of over 20,000 followers on twitter and has already recorded his debut album with some of David Guetta's team in Paris. His OMWB (On My West Behaviour) movement is a social enterprise formed to promote young talented artists and creatives in the UK.  Both Ato and the movement are all about encouraging individuality and ambition and breaking stereotypes and expected societal conventions, so I'm aiming to channel this through my ongoing campaign you'll see developing here over the next few months. Gonna be an interesting challenge and I can't wait to see where it goes!

My shoot will also introduce you to the insanely sick menswear of up and coming designer, Sereeta Venkanah and to the incredible eyewear of Hi Tek Designs, as seen on Lady Gaga and finally to 15 year old Santos (another immensely talented promising young rap artist and another member of the OMWB movement) who will be in one of the shots alongside Ato.

I spent the days leading up to the shoot morphing the corner of my living room into this little pocket of space age awesomeness, armed with an obscenely large quantity of poundland metallic gift wrap for wallpaper, my brand new smoke machine (which has been a very funky addition to house parties..) and a bunch of fluorescent tubes… The day itself consisted of watching Ato clamber in and out of my window onto my makeshift roof balcony with a can of silver spray paint and some old trainers, Ato pretending to be some sort of space age Aztek warrior with a fluorescent tube as a makeshift staff and 6 hours of shooting, fuelled by a combination of OMWB-pumped adrenalin, a highly enjoyable baked beans and cheese on toast break (a photoshoot essential of course!) and a teensy bit of malibu… ;)

Looking forward to watching both Ato's rapping career and the OMWB movement develop and thrive. Immensely proud to be a part of this! Watch this space for the rest of the shoot!

Also, the Laura Apsit Livens SS15 Campaign and Lookbook I shot has been officially released on her site, so check it out! ;) http://www.lauraapsitlivens.co.uk

Super excited to bring you a selection from my campaign and look book for Laura Apsit Livens' SS14 collection which will soon be up on Laura's website at http://www.lauraapsitlivens.co.uk .
These images are the result of an intense but highly rewarding day of shooting 27 hats in the swankiest apartment I'll probably ever set foot in. Oh my god, I need those floor length windows, daytime/nighttime dimmer switch lights and built in radio and ipod speaker control panels in every room in my life... Must say, a fitting level of luxury for the most sumptuous hats I have laid eyes on.

Laura has now opened her Mayfair Atelier, producing her own collections as well as collaborating with other design houses, most recent being Louis Vuitton for a new campaign, Hasan Hejazi and Boodles the Jewellers. She has built up a star-studded client list including Paloma Faith, Rita Ora, Jessie J and the Duchess of Westminster, she has been featured in Magazines such as LOVE Magazine, Hello, Tirade, Daily Mail and Cheshire Life.

Head down to Laura's Mayfair Atelier to meet the designer herself and see her beautiful collection at:
59 Duke Street,
Mayfair,
London,
W1K 5NX

I must say a special thanks to our fabulous behind the scenes team, (Kieran Tudor, Simone Veronique Kidd and Elisa Silvestri) and our gorgeous models, Sofia and Leona. Girls, you are two very classy ladies!

All for now my lovelies!
