As I was backing up files from recent shoots, I looked at a ‘before & after’ image and spontaneously whispered to myself “thank god for RAW’…
This particular shoot took place at a friend’s salon after a very long working day so I was running on fumes from there on! The room I was setting up in was boiling and I had to set up my strobes, build 2 soft boxes (which are like lampshades designed by Rubik’s), background frame, take a few light readings & set up the camera before Jodie came upstairs after her make-over.
Obviously running around like a headless chicken meant the chances of forgetting something was pretty high!

Original Image

Yes, I was so busy concentrating on sharpness when reviewing the images that I had already shot half the pictures with the wrong white balance setting. Now this isn’t really a big deal if your shooting in RAW because its easily corrected in post production…

Finished Image

but again I say the words,

Thank God For RAW 🙂

Emily (makeover shoot)

Look out for this one, I’m thinking this is not the last we will be seeing her!!!

It was great meeting Emily & Amanda (mum) this week for a makeover photo shoot at Roberts Steel Hairdressing.

Whilst Norris (Nat) worked on Emily I set up in the salon upstairs (Mr@Fulwwod) which belongs to her Husband Bob (Lee)…

they are kind of like ‘Hart to Hart’ but with better scissors!!!

Anywayyyy, Emily is currently involved in the ‘Miss Preston’ model competition and you could tell she was really excited about it and so was Amanda. We are all wishing Emily the best of luck on this one 🙂

Myself & Roberts Steel are currently offering makeover shoots so if you are interested then please contact either me or Natalie 🙂


Once again I will be with the Roberts Steel gang for the Preston Vintage weekend…

An army of hair stylists and make-up artists will be transforming the people of Preston all weekend at Avenham Park and I will be there to capture all the glamour. Looking forward to this one 🙂
