Here is a picture of Helen and Susan from Primrose Hill Candles. I recently did a series of press shots for them along with some still life shots for magazines and their website. Their candles are incredible – they are made with soy wax and they have the most beautiful smells that fill up a living space. I was so pleased to do this shoot as they gave me loads of candles to take home including a mulled wine candle. It smells amazing!
I was browsing in a cute Hampstead store the other day when I noticed a young woman with the most incredible hair and a winning smile. I watched her for a while and decided that I would love to photograph her. We chatted and I told her I was a photographer and she told me she was a singer and voila, we had arranged a shoot! We took the photos on the beautiful Hampstead Heath and Linah was absolutely brilliant to work with – so effervescent and energetic, with a 100 watt smile. Linah was thrilled with the pictures and so was I. I love the colours and intensity of her gaze in this picture.
I took this photograph of the beautiful and extremely elegant Erin O Connor for the Gloss Magazine, a glamorous Irish Sunday supplement that comes out once a month. The shoot took place in Chanel on Bond street and Erin wore couture. We had a brilliant team including celebrated makeup artist Kay Montana. Erin was so chatty and friendly that I had to drag myself off the sofa to get started! Once we did, she was art in motion, making the most wonderful photogenic shapes for the camera.
I photographed the irrepressible Richard E Grant for Tatler in the screening rooms at the Soho Hotel. Richard was much taller in real life than I imagined, full of life, impossibly charming and quite naughty! I think my cheeks remained a brilliant shade of crimson throughout the shoot, much to the amusement of the Tatler team!
