I took my photography (and blog) full-time late last summer, not knowing where it would take me and who I would meet. I can safely say so far it’s been a real adventure. I’ve watched my portfolio of brands and bloggers grow and grow, I’ve made some wonderful new friends and what I love most is that I’ve found out no one day is the same. Each week brings a new project, a new theme and a new challenge, all of which help me fall even more in love with what I do.
One of the biggest projects I’ve worked on to date has been with my friend and fellow blogger, the fabulous Nathan Rollinson. Through his blog, The Rollinson London, he is taking on the male travel and lifestyle blogging world by storm, working with some of the biggest luxury brands around (and with a lot more collabs yet to come!) and travelling the globe doing what he loves! Since we started working together, we’ve shot lunches, afternoon teas, pamper sessions, fashion pieces, and have lots more on the cards, but nothing beats our first ever shoot together which I’m sharing with you today.
For our initial project, we had chance to spend the afternoon setting the scene in the Four Seasons London for a special beauty regime piece. I’m excited to tell you that the shoot was for none other than Tom Ford (*jaw drops*). When Nathan first told me, I couldn’t believe it! I had the chance to shoot for this incredible brand, in one of London’s most luxurious hotels – it doesn’t get much better! We spent a fabulous afternoon snapping away to create Nathan’s Tom Ford luxe men’s beauty steps, bringing to life both the brand and the luxurious Four Seasons. From face masks, to sumptuous evening aftershave, it was all truly divine…
Although I was completely nervous before the shoot, being the perfectionist that I am, I was so happy with how the photos turned out. I can only dream of what other more amazing projects we will work on together as the year goes on… Watch this space for lots coming soon!
