Prepping with Emmy the Great for her Chinese New Year shoot. Emma-Lee Moss better known as Emmy the Great, just came back from Sundance. After two well-received solo albums, Emmy worked with composer Ilan Eshkeri (Layer Cake, Kick-Ass, Coriolanus) and wrote the soundtrack to Austenland, which is the directorial debut of Napoleon Dynamite co-writer, JerushaContinue reading
Phoenix Magazine did a live photoshoot featuring six semi finalists for the Graduate Fashion Week Best of British for George competition. Each designer created a capsule collection that was inspired by the heritage of the local area surrounding their university. The finalists are Susanna Yi from the University of East London, Leanne Jordon from theContinue reading
The colour of this spool of thread was ‘elephant.’ Today I worked with an excellent seamstress, who showed me this spool and told me that even though it was empty she couldn’t bear to throw it out because she liked the name of the colour! The colour of thread always used to have a nameContinue reading
Food on photoshoots is more important than most people would think. Often you book a studio because you like the food. Many studios offer in-house catering and you can always tell when someone has a new chef!. A model is guaranteed a one hour break so there is always enough time to have a goodContinue reading
I styled a shoot with hair stylist Andrew Barton for breast cancer awareness. We had two celebrities and one breast cancer survivor. This was her first photo shoot and she said she’d never look at a magazine the same way – she never knew how many people were really involved in a photo shoot! IContinue reading
I was recently on a shoot and for some reason it dawned on me that a lot of people don’t really get how many things you have to think about when you’re the stylist on a shoot! I could write a book – but instead here’s a few thoughts: Most students new to styling don’tContinue reading
Well, I have to say I feel very hip seeing myself in one of my favourite magazines! This is from the autumn issue of Zink Canada. When Zink magazine said they’d like to interview me I was quite delighted and they asked for a picture of me so I sent them a typical headshot. ThenContinue reading
This is some back stage footage of the team that I worked with on the Harvey Nichols shoot in Istanbul. It was really cool experience to shoot a model hanging upside down. It’s really hard on the models’ foot; the foot is quite heavy wrapped up and all the blood is rushing to the modelsContinue reading
Yesterday’s shoot was all about Wonderful Hair. I’ve never had hair extensions and have never had the desire to have them – until today that is. I love how Yulia looks while waiting for her hair to be done. Most models bring a book or something, occasionally I’ve known models who knit to pass theContinue reading
The Subways: Josh Morgan – Drums, Billy Lunn – Guitar & Vocals, Charlotte Cooper – Bass & Vocals are some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. They’re all really good friends, they love what they do and they’re just fun to hang out with! Their debut album, Young For Eternity, was released on 4Continue reading
I’m always happy to shoot at a studio that has a nice lunch, so I was quite pleased about shooting at Holborn Studios. I also like studios that are helpful. I usually bring hangers just in case the studio doesn’t have enough and sometimes I bring my own steamer & iron. I like bringing anContinue reading
If you’ve very hungry or in need of a good English breakfast the S&M cafe (Sausage and Mash cafe) is a great place to eat. This is also a good place for a photo shoot. I’ve shot here a couple of times but you have to start early in the morning and finish before noonContinue reading
We had a great shoot day. We did lots of prep for this shoot; we went to PRs and designers and found lots of fabulous dresses!!! It was an easy, happy shoot day – lots of shoots are – everyone wants to get as much out of the shoot as possible and to do aContinue reading
As a kid I hated road trips but this trip has really been great! It felt like the kind of trip that you take with your girlfriends and most of us have already worked together so it made everything super easy. We’re all Canadian with one American so we’ve all experienced the childhood road trip;Continue reading
No one realizes how much packing a stylist and her assistants do. I have about seven suitcases and they always seem to be in use. Taxis always think that I’m moving and never just going to work for the day. On fashion TV there is always a rail full of clothes and it’s a mysteryContinue reading
Celebrity in itself is a bit weird. I’ve met some people who just want to be a celebrity as a profession, like a dentist. A celebrity look-alike is weird but kind of fun and makes sense! We did a shoot with a Victoria & David Beckham, Ricky Gervais and Kylie look-alike. They were great: theyContinue reading
This shoot was for Luxure Magazine. I was really happy to do a shoot for Luxure because I adore the Fashion Director, Alexia Somerville. She’s an amazing stylist and has a really good eye for spotting new talent. The shoot was about "The Ones To Watch" so we focused on several up-and-coming designers. The teamContinue reading
