New: Editorial Photo Shoot for Design Scene

Published exclusively yesterday on European fashion website Design Scene, here are some images from a 90s inspired, grunge style shoot that I worked on recently with photographer Eilish Mc Cormick and stylist Linda Conway. Make-up for the female model was kept minimal with a lightweight Chanel base, taupe eye shadows from Stila & liquid liner plus mascara from Lancome.

Most days for the last 3 years I have walked the same route from my house to where the gym and my old college were. As a photographer I am constantly challenging myself to see where I can get a photograph so naturally on this walk I would look at everything and see what I could get a picture. After three years I felt as if I had seen everything on this road and there was no point looking to see if there was any subjects for photographs. 

That was until tonight, when I saw this sign and knew I needed a photograph of it, and honestly I love this photograph. It is especially special to me because I found something somewhere I stopped looking because I thought I had seen it all. Honestly this can be seen in other aspects of life too, no matter how much you think you know about something, there is probably something waiting to be discovered.
