Good Afternoon Folks,

What fun we had with Maids to Measure with Touker Suleyman. The lovely Maids Sinclair and India Sellars have been building their business for the last four years and they specialise in creating beautiful bridesmaids dresses. They saw a massive gap in the market and set about filling this gap with the most exquisite bridesmaid gowns.

Gone are the days when bridesmaids lived in fear of what they were going to be made to wear; thanks to these two talented ladies they now have some very classy gowns to choose and wear. They have dressed some very high profile bridesmaids so I think it is safe to say they have got things just right!

I hear cries of these must be way out of our budget; well I think you will be pleasantly surprised with the price bracket and these little numbers are something that can be worn after the wedding too.

Now our lovely maids are set to reach new heights with the funding that Touker Suleyman has invested into their business and you can read all about it if you click here, this was an article featured in The Sunday Times.  Maids to Measure with Touker Suleyman is sure to be a match made in Heaven 🙂

So on to the party, which I was chuffed to bits to be invited to! It was held at Home House 20 Portman Square in London and this is where Sinclair and India launched their company four years ago, so it is rather fitting that they should celebrate this milestone there too. There were all sorts of scrumptious drinkies and food on offer and I did feel that I needed to sample all of them for this very important research 😉  Emma Tindley and I had lots of great chats with the other guests. For those of you who haven’t heard of Emma, she is our designer extraordinaire who won the You and Your Wedding Designer of The Year 2015. She also made Sinclair’s bespoke gown for her wedding last year and this was featured in Brides magazine too!

We are so proud of you Sinclair and India and can’t wait to see what exciting things are in store for you. If you are getting married be sure to pop along to Maids to Measure to see all the gorgeous things they have to offer.

Love,

Claire 🙂

Happy Sunday Folks and some more Headshots for you today 🙂

Say hello to Amy Seymour or Our Amazing Amz as I affectionately call her; I have been doing Amy’s headshots for about five years now and just when I think she cannot get any more beautiful, hey presto she does!!

Amy is a very talented actor, presenter and blogger. From the first blog I did about Amy I always said that she is set to go far and I know this to be true because there are lots of exciting things in the pipeline and Our Amz is one of life’s ‘do’ers’, so she will be out there forging a great career for herself.

This set of  headshots is for a new agency that she has been signed to and the brief was clean, simple and organic. Amy had an idea of the type of thing she was looking for and sent me a mood board for inspiration, which is always helpful. On the day we experimented with a view to creating a portfolio that was varied and like Jake showed her versatility. As always we had tremendous fun, and Amy you are a joy to work with and to be your photographer is a real honour. I really do count myself lucky to have the most fabulous people to photograph I really do.

So without further ado here are her headshots a portfolio of 15 in a mix of black and white and colour. Amy has a full set in both black and white and colour so she can choose the medium most suited to the role she is auditioning for.

Amy can be found on the following sites:-

I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I loved taking them.

Actor Headshots – Jake an Englishman in New York!

Good Afternoon Folks,

Today we talk about Actor Headshots.  Jake is an Actor studying in New York and on a recent trip home he needed a new portfolio of Actor Headshots. The brief that Stella Adler gave him was to capture the a’ representation of you’, ummm what to do, what to do!!!! The brief well was…brief, so after lots of agonising and looking at other Actor Headshots in the USA I thought I might have an idea of what the ‘representation of you’ meant. The one thing we did know what they had to be different from the UK ones.

On the day I still wasn’t 100% on what we were going to get but hey we decided we would go with the flow. Jake and I trawled though what seemed thousands of images to see if we could get the ‘representation of that person’ notably these were all American actors and yes we felt a theme coming on so we then headed into the studio to get a ‘representation of Jake’.

No one person can be defined wholly in one image and that much was obvious from our earlier trawlings through the ‘net’, so we set about seeing what we could capture of Jake and how the shots could be used to show different facets of his own personality and facets of the characters he could bring to life. To create a portfolio with variety means that he can pick the most pertinent headshot for a particular role, but as a set hopefully the casting directors can see versatility in him and the craft he is honing.

The images needed to be in a 10×8 inch ratio in order for him to have his CV one side and the head shot the other and in portrait. As you can see they are mostly head and shoulders, again this is the usual but I wanted to throw in a few wildcards for variety and interest when they are being seen as a set, so yes some landscape ones too.

So here we have it the final set of Jake’s Actor Headshots made in England for the USA and I hope they serve him well until they need updating.

I enjoyed the shoot and we, as always, had a laugh. I have been photographing Jake for a number of years now and it has been an honour to be a part of his life and progression. Jake, I have high hopes for you and the dream of walking down the red carpet at one of your premieres; I feel this could be getting closer…no pressure there then 😉

Have a great day folks,

Claire 🙂
