Amy and Lucy BTS

Something a little darker and different from me.. The idea was to make the model look quite grungey and rockstar-like.. Can't wait to work on these!! Shame I've been ill and moving the house round (my computer is in bits waiting for its new home..) but I'll get to them soon enough!

With the gorgeous Amy modelling and amazing make-up artist Lucy Mckeown (introduced to me by the lovely MUA Sian Faulkner) I was very spoilt.

The team (on my very dirty mirror.. oops!)

New make-up artist means more make-up to fall in love with!

Messy hair time!



More messy hair!

Two studio essentials: Tea and hangers!

Metz & Trix BTS

A day in the life of Park Studios...

I had Metz & Trix at the studio the other day. We were shooting the cover for Invazian magazine. The guys recently topped the Urban charts with their song OMG (with DJ Surinder Rattan, who I also shot). There were quite a few people at the studio, but we got all our work and more done! :D

Talent: Metz & Trix (feat. DJ Surinder Rattan)
Make-up: Ganga Bhambra

Lovely Ganga explaining her airbrushing process:

That's the magazine :D


Ganga about to start..

Surinder giving the drums a go:

It's not the cover for iD magazine!!

 I promise Ganga isn't slapping.. more like putting moisturizer on!

The guy's new video:

Scene mag April

This is the first of several images that are going to appear in the beauty section of Scene Magazine, a new Birmingham based magazine. You can find the this first issue online, as well as in retail outlets, bars, restaurants, hair and beauty salons, as well as many other places around Birmingham and surrounding areas.

The make up on the lovely Amy @ Adage was done by the amazing Rebecca Frances. The image is accompanied by an article written by beauty journo extraordinaire Ami Streets (who also provided the awesome nail art on the day). So, all in all, a perfect team <3

Can't wait to show the other images shot on the day!
