Pearls in the V&A


I was set a challenge for this assignment - 45 minutes to shoot a fashion editorial including a cover. To celebrate the opening of the new exhibit at the Victoria and Albert Museum all about pearls we got to photograph inside the amazing building. However, we weren't given long to make the most of this awesome location before the public were allowed in so the pressure was on. Thankfully everyone on the team was great and made it come together, plus our model Charlotte was a breeze to photograph. I'm really pleased with the result and the magazine must have been as well because they ran the story on two seperate covers they liked the shoot so much.

Many thanks to Katie at The Resident for the great assignment. And to all the team for making it happen in such a short amount of time.

I photographed my first assignment for The Sunday Times Magazine recently. You can find it in the paper today. I met with the sculptor Conrad Shawcross who currently has an installation at The Roundhouse in his studio in East London - an amazing place full of metal, wood, wires and machines.

Fiona Barratt for The Resident

Fiona Barratt for The Resident - 7344

It was great photographing Fiona Barratt in her house in Chelsea. As an interior designer her home is full of fantastic features and amazing locations for photographs. It took me a while wondering around to try and pick out the best of the best to feature. Fiona is a driven and friendly woman and is just launching her own line of furniture which she is very excited about.
