Avant Garde Fashion Photography
I love being involved in avant garde fashion photography projects. Over the years I’ve had the privilege of working with some fantastic creatives. It is a real pleasure photographing stunning makeup designs, hairstyles, headpieces and clothing. This page contains a small selection of images that have come about through collaborations with models, makeup artists, hair stylists and others. If you have a similar project or a possible idea you would like to develop please do get in touch.

Images from this shoot were featured in articles in several regional newspapers.
