Shoot for Phushion Magazine

In October 2013, the gents at Phushion Magazine contacted me asking if I would like to be featured in their December issue of the magazine. When I received the message, I have to say I was quite excited, but also a little nervous, this is a fantastic online publication, full of some very talented people and work. Not only did they want to feature me, they wanted me to do an exclusive shoot for them, and I only had just under 2 months to plan, shoot and edit.

So, first things first, the venue. Now living in Kent, there are some beautiful places to shoot, especially at this time of year, the woodlands are full of autumnal colours. Rather than staying in my comfort zone, I decided on something a little different. I was very lucky to be given the opportunity to photograph a wedding at Knowlton Court, earlier in the year. So with my fingers and toes crossed, I contacted them, with the hope that they would agree for me to shoot there, and amazingly they did.

Knowlton Court can be found hidden in the beautiful Canterbury countryside, just a stones throw away from the small village of Goodnestone.

So, now the finer details. I contacted my friend Ellie who has modelled for me a couple of times before, this was good as she knows my style and how I like to work. I also contacted my friend Leanne, who is my go to girl for make up duties, and can highly recommend her.

I wanted to create a vintage/timeless feel to the images, as the location and building are both very old, so the clothing had to compliment the surroundings. After meeting Paula at Love is Boutique in Tunbridge Wells, she agreed to lend me pretty much anything I wanted, thumbs up.

So with everything in place we were ready for the shoot, and below is where you can see some of the results.

I love doing this style of shoot, as it really pushes me creatively, and builds upon experience which can feed through tom my wedding work.
