After jux.com shut down here’s what I have managed to save from the old blog… a piece of the history… on a weird timeline… literally.
A doll in the woods
Stay tuned , as two more ladies are hiding in the woods, but if you are nice, they will come out to play.

My shoot theme was “urban warrior” so I went for feathers, collars etc. but never in my wildest dreams I expected to have a necklace made of real chicken (I think so) bones! Absolute one of a kind.

Working in the fashion business is the most amazing adventure, and on those rare occasions when you get a chance to share the madness with your friends, who are happened to be industry professionals too is just like finding water in the desert.
After weeks and weeks of organising, planning etc. my fab MUA friend managed to cross the sea for me, so we can do some shootings.
We decided to pick a few of our fav themes lately and do multiple outfits, so we did a bit of ghetto, military, monochrome, neon, burlesque and baroque together.
Two days of extremely hard work with my incredible photographer (to whom I can’t be grateful enough) resulted in some pretty wicked photos. A bit of a backstage for now, just to tease you till the retouch works its magic. 😉

Shooting Beauty – 30/03/2013
My official kick off…. what can I say? It was just amazing!!! Shooting Beauty is the best place to go, if you want to build, or even just boost up your portfolio. Let’s start with their fabulous team. Helpful, friendly, professional…. really give you the glimpse of how this business works.
The location was just perfect, really inspired me, especially for the noir. Not to mention Marie Claire has been there just before us. As I was on my way to Manchester from London the following day I couldn’t carry my own wardrobe with myself, but I found their wardrobe perfect. Plenty of clothes, accessories, shoes. Even if you are a starter, the chances you’ll end up with awesome photos are great as they literally provide everything… coffee too. 😛
As a stylist there I had the pleasure to have a sort of wardrobe assistant with me for my shoot, as their stylist was happy to take this part for me. Really enjoyed working with her. My models were just amazing, and again: being a model is probably one of the toughest jobs in the world. Few years ago just for fun I was “tortured” the same way and no kidding’ I was literally dying! So big R.E.S.P.E.C.T to my ladies.
Stephanie was my noir model, the minute I saw her I knew she is the one! Her eyes, her skin tone… not to mention her can do attitude. She was there to make my vision alive, even if that meant she had to stand in 15 cm heels for hours. Oh, have I said they were two sizes bigger? 😛 Then my photographer…. pro and fun… gotta love the guy!
Melanie, my boho princess also worked damn hard. Bare feet, with no bra, against the wind machine… need I say more? Such a beauty, crazy hard worker… I think we got some fab shoots.
If you are in need of any advice, or don’t know where to, or how to start that is the agency you need. After the shoot we went through all the images, built a story from them, and chose which one I’m keeping. A stylist and a manager were sitting there with me, giving their thoughts, opinion about my work, my ideas, which I always find extremely helpful, especially when it comes from industry professionals, not to mention, when they are pleased with what they see, as fortunately, that is the case here…. pretty proud.
Had a blast, and will work with them again!
