I am Frankii Wilde and I am currently based in Newcastle, North East born and bred however my work takes me all over the UK and beyond. A lot of people assume I only work where I live. How did you get into modelling and how long have you been doing it? I find it so difficult to explain as everything that has happened to me in terms of my career all seems to be “happy accidents”. I first started flirting with the camera when I was in art college. I was studying Graphic Design along side a Photography A-LEVEL. We used to stand in as models for each other’s work and my lecturer commented on how well I photographed and my fellow peers would often ask me to model for them. Previous to this I had been a model for a friend's project whilst we were still in school. I would say I have been modeling in a sense for almost 10 years however I started making money from it around 8 years ago.

What types of modelling do you do? I usually coin the term “ retro-reproduction model” but I model fashion, Photographers - HD Photography: Craig Devlin & Stuart Henderson beauty, glamour, lingerie, pin up, you name it! As well as photographic I do Model - Nick Danks catwalk, promotional, films, music videos and tv. Have you modelled for any well known brands or names? I have modelled and continue to model for some of the leading brands in retro reproduction clothing such as Miss Fortune & Glamour Bunny. I am also a regular model for the north east’s home grown very own luxury lingerie brand,Tallulah Love. I am also the face of a product called ‘Skinny Sprinkles’ which can be bought from such shops such as Harrods and Harvey Nichols. I spend a lot of time in the studio for clothing so I have to admit... a location shoot is always exciting! It provides you with so much more to work with, whatever the location. Do you prefer working on location or in a studio?

What do your friends and family think of you being a model? Pretty much all my friends are models, photographers, muas, hair stylists and designers. Mostly people I have met along the way however, I'm very fortunate that my best friend since college happened to follow the same path as me. We have been able to help each other out and support each other throughout our careers. It’s very normal to my family, they always knew I wouldn’t end up with a regular job. I think they thought I’d be a rockstar, as that’s what I kept telling them I was going to be! They are very proud and happy that I choose to follow a passion of mine and be able to make a career out of it. My nan actually got a facebook account to follow what I’m up to on my adventures.

What is the furthest place you have travelled for a shoot? Furthest I have travelled to date was Milan to work with fashion photographer Lorenzo Paxia. To this day his portraits of me are some of my favourites, to my fans too. What preparations do you do before a shoot? If I can, I try and get a full 8 hrs sleep before a shoot. Sometimes my hectic schedule doesn’t allow this. I’m a professional Burlesque performer too so this can mean late nights of shows with early call times for shoots and film. I make sure my finger & toe nails are prepared according to the brief, drink lots of water and try not to eat any foods that may cause bloating or make you feel sluggish and lethargic. What do you think makes a good model? There is obviously no right or wrong answer to this, however, in my opinion a good model has got to engage the audience in some way or another, whether by expression or poise. The image has got to invite the audience in. You have to play a part just like acting. These are factors that go into the final image, however, it always helps to be polite and courteous. Treat people how you wish to be treated yourself. This will make an ever lasting impression on the whole team involved. What's your favourite shoot you have ever done? My favourite shoot to date, this is a very difficult question! I’m split between a concept photo story I created with Emily Cromarty and Chris Harrison called ‘Daddy’s Little Girl’, and when I travelled to the ‘Pin Up Farm’ to shoot my spread for Tease & Cake Pin Up Magazine’s special edition. Both styles are very different, redneck trailer trash to cheesecake pin up.

Who is your favourite fashion designer and why? I do love the theatrics of Alexander McQueen, which must be the Burlesque in me. Is there anything else you would like to tell us about yourself? I’ve been performing Burlesque for over 6 years, I created and run the Headline Honeys Burlesque shows and I recently started up a small venture of making and selling faux rose flower crowns.

Burlesque

I have been performing Burlesque since 2006 and became an international performer in 2009 with my first trip to Milan to perform with Voodoo De Luxe. I am currently finishing my run in 'The Best of Burlesque' at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival produced by Chaz Royal & Betty D'light, the makers of the infamous London Burlesque festival.

My look and style is very classical, I am very reminiscent of the vargas girls from a by gone era.

PHOTOGRAPHY Nadine Burzler Photography


Flower Crowns By Frankii I have only been creating flower crowns foraround 3 months. I initially just started making them for myself but my friends and fans started asking if I could make flower crowns for them too. Being very business savvy this of course made me think, if there a need for them then this could be a little sideline business for myself. I set up an online etsy shop and due to social networking this has created a buzz and the demand keeps growing.

is

I sell the crowns for between ÂŁ8 & ÂŁ20 depending on the style, and I also take custom requests.

Laura Salesa

Creative Director/Blogger/Journalist

www.laurasalesa.com

Originally from Santander, Spain, Laura is a multidisciplinary visual artist and writer based in London. After graduating in Advertising and PR, Laura started her professional career in Journalism, working as a TV Reporter and press journalist. Alongside personal projects that involve video directing, singing, creative writing and blogging (www.thecreativepost.org) is her own online magazine on creativity and inspiration. Laura jumped into professional Graphic Design around 12 years ago just by chance, and discovered this was a natural career move for her. She currently runs her own creative services business, Laura Salesa Limited, which allows her to work in both fields evenly. “I love Journalism as much as Design. They both aim to communicate and deliver a message, which has been always the main goal with my work and the purpose of my creations.”

"Mom"

Laura admits that the main source of her creative skills came up as a “side effect” of her being extremely shy as a child. “In so many aspects my shyness was the main cause that pushed me to express myself through other ways of communication, like drawing things I saw or daydreaming about situations I was too shy to bring to life. Drawing helped me develop my illustration skills, daydreaming unconsciously served me as creative writing training. (Laura has recently published her first fiction novel in Spanish, Nueva Era). I was not aware of my need for artistic expression until I was in High School. Our Literature teacher gave us the task to write a poem using one of the Spanish classics' rhyme schemes. I came back to class next day with over ten poems written, read them all out loud and got an applause from my classmates.”

MODEL Maria Carmen Amarente CONCEPT / PHOTOGRAPHY / ART Laura Salesa

What are your main creative influences? Over the years I have realised what a big influence my mum has been on my creative skills development. My Mum, as well as my Grandad, used to do oil painting, but aside from the genetic factor, my Mum has shown me how to use my creativity to solve domestic problems and save money. I am the youngest of four children, and for a while our family lived in quite a modest economic situation. I grew up seeing my Mum knitting and stitching our clothes, creating blankets from fabric leftovers, turning old unused clothing into something else. For her it was a cost saving solution, but the creativity behind it was admirable. She could have been a great inventor. These days she travels around with a small pillow she made from an old scarf and some foam from an old mattress.


There are many other artists that have inspired me. I always dreamt about becoming a female version of Da Vinci, to be good at all art disciplines. It still is a dream. I admire people like Dali, Hitchcock, Gene Kelly, Bjork, Edgard Allan Poe, and also Michael Jackson. He was the full idea of being an artist, I've been a fan since I was 9 and he has inspired me in so many aspects and ways beyond my career. How important has Fashion been in your career and your work? I have to admit that I have gone through very different stages in my relationship with Fashion in my life. During my teenage years I just wanted to go against what other teenagers were doing by rebelling against their parents: I didn’t drink or smoke, just simply because the CONCEPT / PHOTOGRAPHY / ART rest did and I found it stupid and reckless. I Laura Salesa preferred to invest the money in buying magazines, records and memorabilia of my MODEL favourite artists. If I ever followed any trends Gilen Velasco back then they were pretty much in blend with my music tastes, so I used to wear R&B or hip hop inspired clothing, t-shirts with printed photos of Michael Jackson, Bon Jovi, Elvis Presley etc. If any of my favourite bands/musicians did a shoot with a particular photographer/stylist I would have an interest in them and read about them (ie Mario Testino or David LaChapelle) and "Vintage Chillout" obviously I would buy any magazine where the shoots were published. I am a huge collector. As for my own influences for my personal looks…I started to wear make up in my early twenties, just because my job back then required that type of look (I worked as a clothing shop assistant for a while), which was when I really started to get more interested in beauty tricks, hair styling and dressing more girly (I used to be against wearing dresses for a looong time). Since I moved to London from Spain back in 2005, my dress style PHOTOGRAPHY / ART has changed Laura Salesa very much, and I enjoy dressing MODELS casual but funky, Jessica Zabala, Eduardo Conde, Guillermo Alday, mixing up the Itxaso Ibarretxe, Amaia Lezcano (baby), Eneko Rodriguez, hipster look in its Gilen Velasco, Iker Lezcano, Ramon Gutierrez El Rio, most mild way Elisa Suárez, Laura Salesa and Unai Romero. and adding fedora hats or other Michael Jackson iconic clothing items, like military style jackets.

"Rural Deco"

How about Photography? Is this part of your daily work? My work involves more of the post-editing in photos: retouching, mixing, photomanipulation and adding some fantasy to ordinary shoots. I love photography but I have directed my career into that field, although I do enjoy working with photographers and attend to photography exhibitions.

"The Photographer"

CONCEPT / PHOTOGRAPHY / ART Laura Salesa MODEL unkown (from early 20s album) What are your current and future projects? I now run my own Design and Comms business, so I am pretty much focused on this at the moment. Also I am working on the English version of my first fiction novel “New Era – The Chronicles of the Revealer” which I published in Spanish last year. I am also currently exhibiting in London’s Finsbury Park Café and have concepts for future artworks that I would like to complete this year. There are also some musical projects in the near future (Laura has recorded vocals for a few songs by her music composer husband: "The draghty jabber” for which she has also directed 2 music videos). But there is never enough time in the day for everything!

Creative Post

Since August 2010 Laura has run her own online magazine, The Creative Post (www.thecreativepost.org). Founded in 2010, The Creative Post aims to promote and encourage creativity. The site features artist interviews plus updates on Laura's own creative projects, news of the creative industries and reviews on anything that she might find inspiring or worth writing about. So far, the blog has reached over 75,000 reads by users from all over the world (as of March. 2013).

What's Next?

Many things have happened since I started my professional career back in 2002. From my early experiences as TV Reporter and Press Journalist to a good bunch of years dedicated to providing excellence in Graphic Design for both corporate brands and retail businesses, and in between, I have directed a few music videos and published my very first fiction novel. I've also recorded vocals for a couple of songs, exhibited my digital portrait works around London and I crafted several deco items for my own place. I am a CREATIVE SPIRIT.

Anne Bowcock - www.annebowcock.co.uk

As a makeup artist, there are so many avenues to venture down and finding your creative side can be quite daunting. However, the creative opportunities with makeup are endless, intriguing and inspiring. Finding your own niche and makeup genre can be a struggle as the urge to do a bit of everything is so tempting because you want to ‘show off’ your skills and ability in order to make yourself more marketable. Being multiskilled with different makeup techniques is a plus, however I find a lot of makeup artists do tend to ‘select’ a genre, or fall into one based on working with different makeup artists within that category. For example, Avant Garde, Beauty/Glamour, Bridal, Catwalk or Fashion, Vintage or Stage, Theatre & Special Effects, or having a certain flare and style that they keep referring to and recreating, either way this is how they are producing their best work.

PHOTOGRAPHER Jose Cardoso MUA Anne Bowcock HAIR / STYLIST Jane Bellis MODEL Jenna DRESS Tania Angelis I myself do like all aspects of makeup, as each genre allows you to demonstrate your own creative flare and interpretation of a look, however I have a passion for (and I am on a mission to bring back) ‘Real Glamour back for Real Women’. Think the Hollywood Golden Era; Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and the likes of those icons. Their look was effortlessly beautiful and shows the ‘less is more’ concept and how the pinup girl style can accentuate a woman’s natural beauty in a sultry yet classy way and this highlights how glamorous a woman can look. In a way, I think I like to mix it up with some Vintage, Glamour and Natural but with a modern day twist - using fashion as inspiration - and I have been dubbed a ‘Fashion Inspired’ makeup artist.

PHOTOGRAPHER Jose Cardoso MUA Anne Bowcock HAIR / STYLIST Jane Bellis MODEL Leanne DRESS Tania Angelis

Because of my passion for ‘Real Glamour for Real Woman’, I decided to produce a charity calendar called ‘Fashion Through The Ages’; showcasing fashion, hair and makeup from the 1920s to present day with a modern twist. This is all in aid of Alder Hey Children’s Charity in Liverpool. The calendar was a collaboration with an award winning hairdresser and fantastic photographer whose artistic flare and imagination is helping to capture the makeup & fashion over the last 90 years in an inspirational way. Not just for other creative specialists but for up and coming makeup artists who, like the rest of us, are always looking for additional inspiration and ideas.


"Hollywood Golden era"

PHOTOGRAPHER Jose Cardoso MUA Anne Bowcock HAIR / STYLIST Jane Bellis MODEL Amy Makeup as well as fashion continues to evolve - sometimes certain trends come back with a different twist or even create something new. Eras and trends cross over offering something different which for a makeup artist is exciting as well as inspiring, as it allows your very own creative skills and your individuality and passion to evolve, develop and inspire others. We are never too old to learn something new, and it is great to share your knowledge and skills with others as it helps us all to develop and stretch ourselves and produce our best work. I have showcased some of the looks from the calendar - we still have a day of shooting left to do - covering some of my favourite looks from the Hollywood Golden era, and as an artist I am extremely excited to see the finished product. So stay tuned and stay beautiful!

What is your name and where are you based? Hi I'm Dewa Ariadi and I'm based in Plymouth, Devon. How did you get into photography and how long have you been doing it? I started photography about two years when my older brother gave me his old Canon EOS 30D with 50mm lens when I went home to Bali for holiday. I started taking landscape pictures at the time and I was into street photography too. I started taking one of my friends "Inga Drevnicka" modelling pictures last year and I really got into story and model photography ever since. What types of photography do you do? I have tried a little bit of landscape, low key, street and weddings for friends and family in the past 2 years, however I would love to get more into story model photography because I have really enjoyed it.

Have you photographed any well known brands or names? I have photographed my friend's surfboard company called Luke Young Performance Surfboards earlier this year and was published in Surf Europe magazine, which was was my first published photograph. Do you prefer working on location or in a studio? I prefer shooting on location outdoor or indoor as I find scenery adds to the pictures and it's easier to work my way around, giving me more ideas. I love abandoned buildings like hospitals and schools, and I also like cemeteries for outdoor shoots, especially in the winter. What do your friends and family think of you being a photographer? My friends & family are very supportive about it & I'm very thankful for it.

"The Landlord" idea happened when me and my work collegue, Robbie Woods. went to his friend's pub one morning this year, and we took the shots before the pub was open. I asked Paula, the Landlady, if she could be in the shots too. I don't remember how the gun idea showed up on my mind at the time though, however we did have fun times on this shoot and created some great photographs.

What areas do you cover and what is the furthest place you have travelled for a shoot? I mainly shoot around the Plymouth area, however I would love to travel further in the future. What preparations do you do before a shoot? Charging my battery, format my cards, clean my camera & lenses. Most of the ideas come in my mind spontaneously and I hardly plan what I need. What do you think makes a good photographer? To me, a good photographer is a person who has their own creativity, good personality, knowledge of the camera and have their own photography style. Whats your favorite shoot you have ever done? One of my favorite shoot was when i took my friend inga photograph at place called nun cross farm in devon , the weather was dry however the wind was very strong , she hardly can open her eyes , we ended up staying roughly around 15 minutes for the shoot & i managed to get some pictures i wanted it & really pleased for it. Who is your favourite fashion designer and why? I like Paco Rabanne because their advert's song is cool! Is there anything else you would like to tell us about yourself? I would like to thank CT magazine for publishing my pictures and giving me the opportunity for this interview, and many thanks to my friends & family for supporting me with my photography all the way, and thank you to all the fabulous models I have been working with.

Jennifer Byron -

MODELS Jess Collier Nina P

Hi, my name is Jennifer Byron, I am a photographer based in Manchester, UK. I initially got into foundation year between college and uni. I started off in the darkrooms and then progressed My main passion is fashion photography. I enjoy photographing and meeting new people. I f photograph much more interesting that photographing anything else. I also love fashion in ge shoots myself. I do have a soft spot for vintage everything too!

I have photographed a few alternative brands and names and I've worked with latex extraord her brand Eustratia, as well as many accessory companies. I'm currently trying to build up my portfolio and have worked with a few models from various agencies. I prefer shooting outdoo lighting and at the moment I only have a small studio set up at home.

Everyone supports me and are always complimentary about my work, which is fab. My partne so we discuss everything to do with photography all the time. I mainly shoot in the north west E travel for the right shoot as I'd love to travel around various countries with a model and find un usually the one to organise most of a shoot, so I'll have to organise all the people involved in t suitable time and place for it all to take place which can be very tricky! I always have inspirati which I'll share and I sometimes make my own props and accessories for the shoot too!

I've become a better photographer over time, I think it always works to keep shooting and pra collaborate with people on shoots and never try to force my ideas onto the other people invo a favourite shoot, though I do remember a couple of awful ones which thankfully are well out shoots. As for my favourite images I'm very happy with a few of my recent photographs which I'm always striving to become better.

I love the designs of Christopher Kane, his designs are so unique and I love the fact he collab many other designers, I know) as it makes his designs affordable for the likes of me! I do howe know and independent designers.

I am in the process of starting up a wedding photography venture with my partner Gavin Rolp so keep your eyes peeled for that! 40

WWII Living History by Bryan Heim www.facebook.com/bryanheimphotography

Using a Pentax camera, given to Bryan by his father, Bryan jumped at the idea of taking photographs of almost anything! Friends, family and aircraft became instant subjects of a growing passion to capture moments on film. While attending Portland Community College, Bryan completed basic and advanced photography classes, in addition to majoring in Graphic Design.

Location: HISTORIC FLIGHT FOUNDATION {Paine Field} Impression: WWII Rosie the Riveter Model: CaityCat Historical Research & Continuity: Christopher Miller Wardrobe: Bryan Heim Photographer: Bryan Heim

Creative from day one, Bryan has always been the consummate artist and thinker. Walking at 8 months, Bryan has not stopped since. Bryan adds a tremendous artistic talent to every photograph, design or project he takes on. Exuding an unparalleled passion for his visions and creativeness behind the camera lens, as if the photograph to come all ready existed in his mind before clicking the shutter.


Lingerie, Lifestyle and More

Over the last 25 years, Bryan has photographed and created design work for companies such as Lanphere Construction & Development, Waggener Edstrom Public Relations, Microsoft, McDonalds, Boeing, Victoria's Secret, Master Card, Flightline Fabrications, LLC, Bluth Family Medicine, Riders & Sliders, Oregon Hockey Officials Association, Warhawk Air Museum, Historic Warbirds, LLC, Jeff Hinds Photography, 5 Hole Photography, Mike Cook Properties, J-DUB Surfboards & the Portland Winterhawks. In May of 2013, Bryan completed his fifteenth season as a team photographer for the Western Hockey League Champion Portland Winterhawks Hockey team.

Living History Group

In the Spring of 2012 Bryan joined the Living History Group “Historical Aviation Guild” based in the Northwest United States. Focusing on WWII Living History the “HAG” group quickly became a new found passion for Bryan with its members owning and wearing authentic WWII Army Air Corps uniforms.

After a lifetime of loving all aspects of photography, I am now blessed to have the time and space to dedicate to my passion. Being self taught and never losing the excitement of working on new ideas I am 100% sure I am on the right path.

My main love lies with portraiture as the real beauty is found in many places that some wouldn't even think of looking in. If I can evoke some kind of feeling from someone looking at one of my images then I've done my job. Working with Elissa and Nick just made the day so much easier as they know how each other will react from the tiniest turn or look, they interact perfectly as a couple, and it shows in the images we produced.

Knitty Gritty Knits By Vicky George

www.facebook.c What is Knitty Gritty Knits?

From designer Vicky George comes Knitty Gritty Knits, a new range of Urban Clothing using knitwear and fabrics. Inspired by the raw attitude of the streets, graffiti and the fashion forward generation. Garments are rich in texture and dimension, hand crafted and individually designed. 64


Inspiration

Vicky George and her brother, photographer Samuel George, team up to promote the brand and create shots that will bring a unique look to the urban knitwear. Being siblings has its advantages. "Working together means we are able to push each other further than if we had the constraints of others within our industries. We can discuss new ideas and together look for the type of models and locations that work best" says Vicky. Vicky also believes that Knitty Gritty Knits is unlike any other. "You don't see comfortable, colourful knitwear inspired by what people in the streets would wear, so this is what has made me create such a vibrant and unique look."

Laura-Jane Prisk

London Hair Stylist and Makeup Artist

I’m a hair stylist and makeup artist working in and around London, having graduated in hairdressing from the City of Bristol College in 2011. Since then, I have completed various makeup courses whilst furthering my practical training with top salons in both Bristol and London. I’m currently working freelance and for a mobile agency offering hair and beauty services for a variety of clients in top hotels.

Over the past 12 months I have expanded my portfolio with a range of photo shoots and events, including PHOTOGRAPHER location and studio work. The Sam Bartle - www.mrbartle.com highlights of my career thus far include being the makeup MODEL artist for classical pianist Georgina Collins Maxim on his music video 'The Godfather', for dance anthem singer Rozalla, working on top fashion shows at Pacha London and Headkandi and working backstage at the Hall for Cornwall. Another highlight was working with Miss Galaxy Cornwall UK 2012/13 who went on to win Miss Charity at Face of the Globe 2013. Although I offer a vast range of services such as wedding hair and makeup, editorial and styling for television, (my work has recently been seen on America's NBC news with Natalie Morales) my passion lies in combining my love of beauty and history working on vintage shoots and looks of the era. I’m constantly on the lookout for inspiration and always have a ton of ideas.

I love working in studios for editorial work as I think the style is generally simplistic, yet effective. However, I prefer working on location as it helps add to the authenticity of the pictures, and I just think you can engage the viewer more by creating a story. My friends and family always have been supportive of me whatever I do and I owe a lot to my mum for helping me choose my direction in life, as to begin with I started a university degree in psychology before following my passion in hair and makeup.

Although I now live in London, I still travel to Cornwall to do weddings and other special occasions. It’s always nice to go home and catch up with my family and friends.

The key to a successful shoot is research, research, research! It’s so

important to make sure you’re on the same page as the people you’re going to be working with, and the more research you do, the more you have to offer the photographer and model(s).

The most important ingredient to being a successful makeup artist is passion. Each day as a makeup artist will be different from

the last, and you need to view it not only as your job but as a creative outlet too.

Don’t wait for opportunities to come to you, go out and look for them and good things will happen. In the future, I’d like to see myself working on advertisements for top designers such as Michael Kors, as I think he’s extremely talented. At the moment though, I’m enjoying the direction in which my career is heading. Who knows what the future will hold?

Win a Stars on Mars Necklace

We are proud to once again work with Alesha at Stars on Mars. This time, not only are we bringing you her awesome Vintage range, but you have the chance to win a necklace - how cool is that?!

You Could WIN This 1970s vintage pendant on a modern snake chain Everything about the 1970s was bigger and bolder than the previous decades. From big hairstyles to flamboyant clothing and eye-catching jewellery, ‘the bigger the better’ was the trend to follow. Jewellery was more influenced by nature in the 1970s than ever before. Designers and crafters longed to connect with purer elements like hemp and natural stones, promoting a more peaceful existence and connection to the natural world. Darker colours also gained popularity during this decade, in stark contrast to the bright orange, lime green and yellow shades that were so popular in the 1960s. A very popular jewellery style from the time period was to place a large oval shaped natural stone on a metal bezel. This particular vintage bezel pendant from the 1970s was one of about seven my Mother had in her collection throughout my childhood. Recently, on a whim (and my lucky day) she gifted them all to Stars on Mars. I’m continuing the trend of generosity and gifting one lucky CT Magazine reader one of my vintage pendants in honour of this issue’s Vintage theme. This particular pendant is a darkly coloured jasper stone set on an antique silver bezel, with beautiful strains of hunter green, cream, and burgundy, perfect for the fall. Whoever wins it will have a little bit of heart, soul and history. Good luck!

To enter your chance to WIN this one of a kind necklace all you need to do is the following: 1. Follow us on Twitter - www.twitter.com/CT_FashionMag 2.

Richard Powazynsik - Whitley Bay - UK Fashion Photographer

www.facebook.com/richardpowazynskiphotography

What is your name and where are you based? Hi my name is Richard Powazynski and I'm based in the North East in Whitley Bay. How did you get into photography and how long have you been doing it? I began taking photographs when I left to work overseas 2 years ago, when just before leaving I purchased my first entry level DSLR, a Canon 1000D as it was on offer. Whilst traveling I slowly started to learn how to use my camera – I mainly photographed landscapes as I didn’t feel comfortable photographing people. After a while I decided to try and enrol in a short course to learn to use the other features of my camera. I saw a local photographer was offering an introduction to photography course so I signed up. I was given access to a lot of up-to-date books, which further taught me about my camera and composition. At this point, I started to notice a difference in my photography which inspired me to continue to learn as much as I could. The Christmas just gone I came back to the UK and decided whilst home to try and push myself in a new direction, so I signed up for a workshop in London with professional photographer Benjamin Wong. It was a 2 day fashion conceptual shoot and I learned about putting together collaborative photo shoots; working with models and designers, using lighting, photoshop and lots more. I felt it was a turning point for me as I had not only found a style of photography I wanted to pursue but my images were of a much higher standard than I had been previously producing and the positive feedback reflected that.

What types of photography do you do? I predominantly shoot fashion and conceptual imagery but I shoot commercial and wedding photography too. Do you prefer working on location or in a studio? I have a preference for location shoots as I like the challenge and I feel they add another dimension to my images. What do your friends and family think of you being a photographer? I get a lot of support from my family and friends, they love seeing my work and are very proud of me. What areas do you cover and what is the furthest place you have travelled for a shoot? I cover the North East of the UK but I also travel nationwide for shoots. Locations I've shot in include London, Birmingham and Edinburgh. What preparations do you do before a shoot? Prior to a shoot I research the location and ensure the team is fully prepared. In terms of my equipment I ensure my camera is in working order and fully charged. I check I have everything I I might need and that my memory cards are emptied and formatted. On location before shooting I talk specifically with the model about the concept, posing and locations. What do you think makes a good photographer? In terms of the photography, having an appreciation for things such as light, shadow, texture, form and colour can help a lot. A willingness to keep learning also helps to further enhance your skills and creativity. But more personally being able to communicate effectively with the team is crucial as is having patience and a keen eye for detail. What's your favourite shoot you have ever done? One of my favourites was a recent shoot I did up in Northumberland; we used a lot of smoke on set and also the model climbed up into the waterfall despite it being freezing cold!

Who is your favourite fashion designer and why? Some of my favourite fashion designers include Alexander McQueen and Thierry Mugler, however a little more closer to home one of my favourite designers is Christopher Niari.

Charlotte Wells Vintage Candles

I am Charlotte Wells, I’m almost 18 and I’m based mainly in Hartlepool.

My passion for vintage items started when I landed myself with a Saturday job at 14 in a vintage clothing shop, I loved the quirky and unique clothing and items in the shop. I’ve always been creative and enjoyed studying arty subjects so decided to take this to my advantage by earning money while studying.

My candles began when my Nana was planning to give a full box of vintage china to charity and the idea spiralled from there! I invested in wax, colours and scents and began creating at home, not only using china teacups but other unusual vessels too! I originally sold to family and friends, then went on to sell them in my Mum’s coffee lounge; No.33 in Hartlepool.

My displays are usually themed like a vintage tea party, I use doylies, cute cake stands and ribbon to present my housewares. Within no time I had sold all my stock and found myself hunting in charity shops for more china to keep up with the demand. I recently displayed and sold my range at a ‘vintage summer soiree’ alongside Tallulah Love and Call me Betty vintage and by request I set up a Facebook page selling my wares.

Hat Designer - Lisa Jayne - www.lisajaynemillinery.com Lisa creates one of a kind hats & fascinators using vintage materials sourced throughout England, keen to follow the 1940s philosophy of "Make do & mend" or today's equivalent of "Reduce...Re-use...Recycle". Lisa is keen to use ethically sourced fabrics and wherever possible tries to find new uses for old objects. Lisa loves the opportunity to make designs out of objects others would throw away. Inspiration can come from anywhere, from a walk in the park to a visit to a gallery or whilst out shopping. Lisa loves historical costumes & loves to use elements of historical reference in her designs, her hats have been described as beautiful works of wearable art. Specialising in fabric manipulation she creates unique textures to form headpieces. Having learnt the traditional arts of beading, embroidery, printing, weaving and theatrical millinery her designs are unique and always attract attention. As a designer Lisa enjoys the creative freedom to create unique bespoke hats & head-wear. Her slogan is 'Fabulous hats for Fabulous people'. Lisa never follows trends, she prefers to think outside the box. If you want to look amazing you first need to establish what suits you and then take an element of the fashion trend and incorporate that into your design so that you feel fashionable but still feel like you. Make Up Artist: Aleksandra Fryzlewicz - www.alexthemua.com Aleksandra Fryzlewicz is a professional make-up artist & nail artist.

I have worked within the industry for over eight years and I don’t feel like I will ever stop. What is different about my make up? I believe that nobody should be covered by a mask made from make up, instead they should wear make up that will reveal their beauty. Aleksandra's passion shines through every image of her work.

Who is your favourite fashion designer and why? I don’t have a favourite designer, I have so many different items of clothing including Vintage that I tend to go with what looks and fits great instead of a brand or design. Is there anything else you would like to tell us about yourself? I think it is very important to enjoy your job and I think the quote “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life” is true with what I am doing right now!... Everything I do shapes the path I take in life and out of these experiences I hope to become a stronger, more positive person who can be looked at as a role model for females old and young and show that being pale and wearing big knickers can be sexy!!! Any ladies who see my photos or read this and think I would love to do that or are even wanting to start or push their modelling careers then we can help you here at The Pinup Academy. We offer “Model Coaching and Mentoring days” so check out our website for a course near you soon!!
