Lady Diamond in the Sky - Manchester Fashion Photography

There are a few things I really really need to do...

  1. Update my site...a years worth of great images to select from since I last had chance
  2. Blog more...editorials languishing on my hard drive and thoughts burning my brain
  3. Step away from the 70s...

But in the meantime - here's a seventies flecked fashion editorial from a few months back

Manchester Beauty Editorial

In my mind there's two types of beauty photographs. The first type is ubiquitous - when they're well done and perfectly retouched they look great - but you struggle to remember them. They all look the same, all blend into each other. Ultimately, they're the same shot taken over and over. The second type are basically any beauty shot you can actually remember. Beauty doesn't mean you can't have emotion and impact.

So when I was approached with the concept of creating images based on eighties Athena posters (anyone under 30 might need to Google them...) it sounded interesting...I can remember Athena posters after 30 years...so chances are the photographs would be...interesting.

There were taken on a characteristically wet Manchester afternoon sometime last week...
