So, I still haven’t even remotely had a chance to do a big late 2011 update….
I have however put in my request for part time hours at work. Hopefully it will come through soon so I can get back to normal service with everything.

Lots and lots planned over the next few months. Getting back into the swing with some music photography…In the process of sorting out passes for a few gigs so keep your eyes peeled! Off to London for a creative fashion photography studio workshop next month. Shooting some burlesque promo shots for Cherry Loco and Wild Card Kittty and for a DJ I work with at my day job (we are shooting on the roof terrace of the office which has an incredible view of the Edinburgh skyline!). 5 weddings and counting so far for 2012. Bright it on!!

With it being January and with me working in an office for a high street fashion retailer I really don;t have a lot to do at the moment. I have mostly been wasting my days working out for I can go back to uni in September and now be pennyless and lusting over editorials and lookbooks on Fashion Rogue.

So instead of the usual  mass of my work here are some editorials I am in love with at the moment:

1. Prada Spring 2012 – shot by Steven Meisel with models: including: Natasha Poly, Guinevere van Seenus, Elise Crombez, Meghan Collison, Katryn Kruger & Ymre Stiekema.
I have been swooning over this collection all day. Please someone buy me the lot of it. Ice cream colours, 50s influence with kitsch retro prints and motifs, sexy vintage cars and smouldering models. What more would you want?  I love that this shoot doesn’t look like a relic from the past, such a great and modern take. I have been a little bit frustrated with shooting vintage pinup photography recently and trying to look for new ways of shooting and this has got me inspired to start again.
2. SS12 Mulberry Shot by Tim Walker with models Lindsey Wixson and Frida Gustavsson.

This shoot popped up on my screen and gah, everything about it. love love love. Brighton beach  one of my favourite places, lots of giant rock, ice creams, seaside stripes one of my fave fashion photographers and Frida Gustavsson who’s beautiful face and everything else I adore. I think I am getting a small obsession for all these ice cream colours. Let’s hope there is some sunshine this year so I can break out from my usual tones of black, black red,, leopard and more black……
3. Behind the scenes H&M; Versace collection with Abby Lee Kershaw
Could this woman get any more perfect if she tried? This shoot in general is just incredible. Look at the lighting set up. Dreaming of some day being able to work on shoots like this.
4. Anna Zakusylo for Vogue Turkey September 2010 by Emre Ünal

Who can resist a lady in red? I know this shoot is from a while back but I love it too much.  The hues in this shoot against the city grey stones look incredible. If only I could look as good as this on a daily basis.

So, I know this blog is a bit different from the norm but I have actually thoroughly enjoyed typing something a bit different for a change, so maybe I will keep it up!! Any feedback and suggestions are much welcomed.
