The god of the Tiber river

I had SUCH a nice shoot (as always) with Imagesse in September last year. We drove from different ends of the country to meet in Wiltshire at a beautiful estate, and it was such a pleasure to explore and see what images we could come up with there and in some nearby locations. I even got to sit in Poseidon’s lap (well, I was absolutely convinced it was Poseidon, silly me making assumptions based on the beautiful lake we were next to, but we later researched and discovered it was the god of the Tiber river!). Looking forward to working with Imagesse again (along with another favourite photographer and a beautiful model friend) in Cornwall in May. 🙂

Sunflowers & Dungarees

Today I’m sharing a collection of images I’ve been sent by Colin (Capture77) taken at Big Shot Studio in Leighton Buzzard, when I’ve dropped by for a few studio days over the last few months. I really love his style and we are definitely on the same page in terms of taste. All styling is mine, though it was Colin who suggested I bring dungarees (nice to do something different!). Hope you like these as much as I do…

The sunflowers one was the last set we did after one of the days (I think it may even have been the last frame), and it was a case of me grabbing them when I spotted them in the studio and demanding we shoot with them(!). Sunflowers, for me, are a symbol of self-belief and confidence. If you are into this kind of thing, they represent the solar plexis chakra and I was once told to visualise them in order to boost feelings of self-esteem and personal power. The portrait that resulted, below, definitely channels this, and I love it for that reason.
