I am Dennis C. Valdez. I moved from London to Chigwell, Essex, UK recently. My passion with photography started with shooting landscapes at first around 10 to 12 years ago. In the last 3 years however, one of my colleagues told me that I have an eye to see things through a lens and so I then bought my first DSLR which I upgraded to a better one last year. Since then, I have registered on model-photographer networking sites and have been chatting to talented photographers and models.

I enjoy shooting Fashion, Portrait, Glamour and Lingerie style shoots. In addition, I have done Beauty, Topless, Artistic/Classic/Figure Nude style shoots. However, I am always open to any suggestions and will consider undertaking any themes that might really interest me. I am particularly interested in the more edgy and creative shoots. At the moment, I am in the process of strengthening my already strong and versatile portfolio. I have not photographed any well-known brands or names as yet but I am optimistic that I will have the opportunity to do so soon. Patience is a virtue as they say and I am a man with plenty of patience. As to working preference, I normally prefer to shoot in a studio however I have worked in different locations in the past. I normally invite models and also MUAs to my home where I believe it makes for a comfortable and relaxed environment for everyone.



Photographer - Dennis Valdez Model - Olive Cartley MUA - Annabelle Lowe


I do not have any diploma or degree in Photography although I'm considering getting a formal education in the future. I have attended few workshops in the past too. However, I am a Bachelor of Science and Computer Science graduate and also earned another degree in Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Recently, I gained my UK qualifications in Level 4 Child Care and Level 5 Professional Training in West London and at the moment I am currently studying for my Masters in Business Administration in London Bridge, UK. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Peter Edwards for always being supportive in my passion for photography and for being understanding when things get difficult, frustrating and I am about to give up. I couldn’t thank him more. I am still in search for interesting models, make up artists and stylists to collaborate with on new ventures.

Emily Jane Tonkin - Designer - What is your name and where are you based? Emily Jane Tonkin. I live in Loughton, Essex for now.


How did you get into fashion designing and how long have you been doing it? I have always sketched, but I found designing when I moved to Los Angeles in 2008. I studied Merchandise Product Development at FIDM, and from 2009 knew I wanted to design & have my own brand.

What types of fashion do you design? Sportswear & active wear. The types of technologies that can be used in fabric production, which can aid sports performance, fascinate me. I occasionally make dresses for friends and attack a ridiculously complicated knit pattern. Have you worked with any well known designers or names? I worked for the UK’s top supplier for Marks And Spencer in 2010-2011, but I was fortunate to be taught by some of the best technical designers and product developers on the West coast of America at FIDM.


Clothing: 'Alethia' Line

Do you prefer working on location or in a studio? Both have their positives. I love the studio because the lighting will always be the same and there usually aren’t any surprises, but location is great too, there are always obstacles to over come and working in new surroundings helps you grow as a designer. What do your friends and family think of you being a designer? My family are supportive, and just happy I can do something I love. I’ve never really asked that to my friends but a lot of them work in the industry so they probably are not that impressed, ha! What is the farthest place you have travelled for a show? When I lived in Los Angeles I flew into London for Sept 09 fashion week, I guess that’s pretty far. What preparations do you do before a show, or before launching your latest collection? 30:Fifteen haven’t had a show yet, but we are launching our collection at Pure London next weekend so a lot of work goes into making sure the collection looks the best it can; hiring models to wear the looks and getting as much awareness to our presence there as possible.

Ohhh Lulu Lingerie - What is your name and where are you based? My name is Sarah Norwood, I am the designer behind Ohhh Lulu Lingerie & Apparel and I am based out of Orillia, which is a small town in Ontario Canada. What types of garment do you design? My focus is largely on vintage style lingerie fused with modern simplicity. Many of my original pieces were initially based off of vintage pieces in my collection. My style has really grown over the last year into a more modern, simple look, but still with a retro feel. How did you get into intimate apparel designing and how long have you been doing it? I graduated from the Fashion Design Program at George Brown College in Toronto Ontario in 2006, but never actively pursued a career in Fashion. I had worked in the textile and home decorating industries, eventually moving north to Orillia where the jobs were much more sparse. I had always had a love for really nice lingerie, and was really inspired by vintage pieces, especially pieces from the 20s to 50s. Using the skills I had learned in school, I started designing a few pieces, and the collection really took off!

PHOTOGRAPHER Caitlin Morey MODEL Amelia Set: Flora


Set: Stible What's your favourite collection / design you have ever done? One of the things I love most about what I do is being able to design custom pieces. They tend to be the pieces I like the most, because they are original. I don’t know if I can pinpoint one specific design, but pieces that are designed collaboratively with me and my customer tend to be my favourite. Where do you draw your inspiration from? After working for several years in the textile industry, I’ve really developed an intense love of fabric. I often find inspirations from the fabrics themselves. Sourcing fabric is something I like to spend a lot of time on. A fabric that has a great drape, hand, and colour really inspires me. I am also inspired by vintage lingerie, as well as the beautiful area where I live. We are surrounded with nature trails & lakes. The landscape is very inspiring. What do you think makes a good designer? I think a lot about what makes a good designer. I think a good designer is flexible and allows their style to flow and change. A good designer creates interesting garments, that are not only beautiful, but comfortable.


Who is your personal favourite fashion designer and why? Carine Gilson is a designer that I really admire. The work on her pieces is just gorgeous. It is timeless and elegant. That is a look that I aspire to. How do you see your brand developing over the next few years? Since I quit my full time job last year in order to work on Ohhh Lulu full time, things have really taken off. I am expanding my digital sewing pattern collection, and will be looking into doing small production runs so I can start selling a Ready Made Line. I am incredibly excited about this stage of business and am excited to expand into retail stores as well as my own online shop!

"I purchased my first camera 3 years ago and started taking random snaps of the family and really enjoyed it so I upgraded my kit and last summer attented my first creative circle session at banana studio. It is fantastic for photographers to practice photographing models (I would recomend it to anyone new to photography) and I was hooked. Since then I have photographed quite a few models and everything from a wedding to a pole dancing showcase. It's still very early days for me but I'm loving it and just want to improve with every photoshoot I do."

Sophie Dickson - North East UK Fashion Model

Hey everyone, I’m Sophie, 22 years old and I live in the north east, UK. I started modelling when I was 18 and been doing modelling for 4 years now. I love every aspect of modelling and I'm glad I started it at such a young age.

I’ve had the opportunity to work with some amazing photographers and different models too and love to try out different styles. I'm always up for doing a different sort of theme and look for my portfolio as well as putting my own creative ideas into the shoot. The main areas I like to shoot in is fashion amd lingerie, but fashion is what I enjoy the most.

My goal in the next few years would be to achieve full time catalogue work, this would be like a dream for me! I’ve worked hard over the past few years to get far in my modelling career and feel like I’ve achieved some excellent work taken by some talented photographers. Modelling is something that inspires me and something that I truly enjoy and want to get far in. I have my own modelling page for everyone to take a look at if they would like to see some more of my work. Thanks to everyone for reading my piece, Sophie x

Alexis Smith - Lingerie Designer - @alexissmithbras

You don't have to look far these days to find businesses floundering under the pressure of the tough economic climate, but one area that continues to buck the trend is the intimate apparel industry, with consumers demanding more from lingerie brands in terms of affordability, higher quality and more choice in product range.

One brand benefiting from the growing fuller bust sector is Essex based Alexis Smith Lingerie. Founded by Alexis Smith, who, despite having no experience of designing lingerie, recognised the difficulty posed by women with larger busts looking for sexy DJessica Wright ­ Alexis Smith G lingerie and launched the namesake small back, large cup brand. We spoke to Alexis Smith to learn more about the specialised brand and find out what we can expect to see in the foreseeable future. Q. Hi Alexis! So, what do you design exactly? A. Lingerie sets – bras and knickers. Q. How did you get into intimate apparel designing and how long have you been doing it? A. Through my desire to create a young, sexy affordable collection for ladies with small back and large cup sizes. I have been in the industry for nearly three years now. I initially had no experience so I worked closely with a UK design and development team for two years before the launch of Alexis Smith. Q. Which is your favourite collection or design you've ever done? A. I love the 'PINK' collection! It's so girly and cute and really brings out your fun flirty side. Q. Where do you draw your inspiration from? A. I create seasonal mood boards and try to create the feeling of the time of year and how we want to look and feel at that time. I also watch high street trends in clothing, as underwear is like clothing you have to feel sexy and confident in it.

Q. Have you worked with any well known names? A. I have worked with The Only Way Is Essex's Jessica Wright. Jessica co-designed our 'Love Me In Lace' black set. She has her own lingerie shop (With Love Jessica) so has a good eye for what is popular and what sells well. Q. Do you prefer working on photoshoots on location or in a studio? A. I much prefer working on location. I think the location sets the scene and can create the right mood for everyone on the shoot which in turn plays a big part in creating the final images. Q. What do your friends and family think of you being a designer? A. They think it’s great! I was never going to have a ‘normal’ job! I love a challenge and love working for myself, even if the hours are twice as long as a 9-5 job. I would not have it any other way. Q. What's the farthest place you have travelled for a show? A. I have been to Paris but I plan to launch the brand in the US in the next couple of years. Q. What preparations do you do before a show, or before launching your latest collection? A. I think the key to being successful in business and to have a successful show is to be organised. If you plan and organise everything then you are focused and prepared. Q. What do you think makes a good designer? A. Passion, creativity, and most of all hard work. Q. Who is your personal favourite fashion designer and why? A. Gabriel Chanel. I worked for Chanel for three years and trained at their London academy. I learnt a lot about Chanel and her life and how she created what is in my opinion the best brand in the world: Chanel! It’s a rags to riches story, which I love.

MODEL Jessica Wright


LINGERIE Alexis Smith MODEL Emma

Q. How do you see your brand developing over the next few years? A. I have so many ideas and different directions I want to go in! I will be increasing the size range and designing a swimwear collection. That’s all I can say for now but hopefully there will be some big celebrity collaborations too!

It sounds like this is an exciting time for Alexis Smith Lingerie and we wish them the best of luck. Thanks for speaking to CT Magazine, Alexis!

Fashion & Promotional Model

I'm Sarah and I am 22 years old. Currently I am a graduate student and I work doing promotional events. I have been doing events for a few years and have recently been asked to do a bit of promo modelling through an agency. I have been really fortunate in the events I have worked. I was very lucky to work at London 2012 and I did another event for the England cricket team. I've promoted well known beer brands, been involved in some great motor sport events, rugby tournaments, and even an event for the Conservative Party. I'm friendly, ambitious and very hard working; I love the diversity of work I do and the high energy it requires. I also thoroughly enjoy meeting new people, adore travelling, seeing new things and participating in new experiences; promo modelling enables me to do just this. I have worked with a few amateur photographers looking to build their portfolio, in addition to established ones who wish to focus on a particular theme. I just enjoy life and what it offers, and feel very grateful I am asked!

Kelsey Pearse - NSW Australia - Fashion Model

The way a model can transform themselves into any character they wish is such an amazing thing. My name is Kelsey-Lee Pearse.

When I was 17 a friend invited me to one of their shoots and I just thought it was so much fun. Being from a small town in NSW, Australia I didn't think I had a chance to get anywhere but I fought extra hard and continue to fight to get where I want to be with a lot of time and travel to gain my experience. The people I have met and all the shoots I have done make it all worth it.

Ive done some pretty incredible shoots and my favourite shoot to date must definitely be the underwater fashion shoot I did with Laurie Klippel. Luckily Laurie is so fantastic and a good friend of mine as it was such a cold day in Sydney and I didn’t think i was going to be able to get any shots at all. Laurie was amazing, letting me take breaks wheneverIi felt I needed them and he put up with me for a whole day and we ended up creating some awesome images! It is just fantastic when a team gets together and makes some incredible work! I am constantly blown away by how amazing a group of people can work together, throw in all their own ideas and make something remarkable. It pushes me to go further and try harder in my own work. xx
