they say the one that leaves first protects themselves…. but what is that from?

I’m paying homage to a photographer who inspires me every day.  Paolo Roversi creates images that I want to be inside me! This is a shot that I styled & edited to try to create some of the beauty that he makes.  Model Kyra Macfarlane.  Make Up Maxine Smith.

there can sometimes be a finality to beauty, there is nothing more to be said after the  creation.


dreams take us to far away places that are still so real..

the story of a shoot


I get asked a lot of questions about my photography. This is a full shoot, as was presented to my client. My style is a fusion of fashion & fine art. This was a portraiture commission, that I styled and shot in natural light at sunset. Something that is not that common in Manchester in September!
