OH TO BE BY THE SEA!


THESE ARE SOME OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS FROM THE PHOTOSHOOT I DID AS PART OF MY GROUP FOR FASHION IMAGE. OUR IMPORTANCE WAS WITH THE PROPS RATHER THAN MODELS. WE SET UP A VASE IN THE STUDIO FULL OF VARIOUS JEWELLERY AND ACCESSORIES AND THEN SIMPLY ADDED WATER AND FISH INTO THE EQUATION. I THINK THE IMAGES HAVE PROVED AFFECTIVE AND I'M REALLY PLEASED WITH THE FINAL OUTCOME.

DAVID LACHAPELLE

ONE OF THE MAIN PEOPLE THAT CAME UP IN DISCUSSION RECENTLY WHEN MY GROUP AND I WHERE COMING UP WITH IDEAS FOR OUR FASHION IMAGE PHOTOSHOOT WAS DAVID LACHAPELLE. I'M GUESS THAT PRETTY MUCH EVERYONE HAS HEARD OF HIM. AN EXTREMELY POPULAR FASHION PHOTOGRAPHER. THE GROUP DECIDED THAT WE WANTED TO DO SOMETHING THAT WAS BRIGHT AND COLOURFUL. CLEARLY THIS IS ONE OF LACHAPELLE'S KEY THINGS THAT DISTINGUISH HIS WORK FROM OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS PROVING HIM A GREAT SOURCE OF INSPIRATION FOR OUR PHOTOSHOOT.

GIA


video

THIS FILM IS A MUST SEE FOR ANYONE INTO FASHION. IT IS ABOUT THE LIFE OF "THE FIRST SUPERMODEL" GIA CARANGI. IT GIVES AN INSIGHT INTO THE LIFE OF A YOUNG GIRL DURING THE LATE 70'S EARLY 80'S, WHO COULD HAVE ANYTHING AND SUBSEQUENTLY HER SELF-DESTRUCTION BECAUSE OF THIS. I WOULD RECOMMEND CHECKING IT OUT.

FRIDA


A FILM THAT I REALLY LOVE IS FRIDA. THIS FILM IS BASED ON THE LIFE OF THE FAMOUS FEMALE ARTIST FRIDA KAHLO. TO ME THIS WOMAN AND THE WAY SHE IS SHOWN WITHIN THIS FILM PROVE HER TO BE A TRUE INSPIRATION. IT DEPICTS THE MANY STRUGGLES THROUGHOUT HER LIFE, IN PARTICULAR HER STRUGGLE WITH ILLNESS. ON TOP OF THIS SHE WAS LIVING IN A TIME DICTATED BY MEN. A WOMAN WHO HAD HER OWN MIND AND ACHIEVED SO MUCH. WHENEVER I WATCH THIS FILM I FEEL INSPIRED, AND ALONG WITH THE MUSIC I JUST CAN'T HELP BUT LOVE THIS FILM.

MATERIAL GIRL


I RECENTLY PURCHASED A COPY OF MATERIAL GIRL MAGAZINE OFF THE INTERNET. IT'S SUCH A BEAUTIFUL MAGAZINE FULL OF NICE FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY. UNFORTUNATELY ONLY THE TITLES ARE WRITTEN IN ENGLISH, HOWEVER THIS DOESN'T TAKE AWAY FROM THE FANTASTIC IMAGERY. THIS MAGAZINE IS TRULY INSPIRING TO ME!
