Vintage Life Magazine Photo shoot
Something a little different for me was a photo shoot organised by Sarah Clayton of Hair Majesty for an article which has appeared in the January issue of Vintage Life magazine.
The article entitled “My Look” shows a detailed step by step guide to a hairstyle know as Sweetheart hair.
My brief was to photograph each step whilst Sarah wrote the instructions. Some further images were taken to show the finished style. The model was Catherine Day and her dress was supplied by Lil Miss Vintage.
The shoot itself took place in Sarah’s salon known as Hair Majesty, her premises are like a step back in time with a huge display of 1950’s and 60’s posters, furniture, and other paraphernalia your mum or nan would instantly recognise, (sadly for me I also spotted many items which were in my mums bedroom!)
All the images were shot on the Fuji XT1 with the 16-55 f2.8 lens. Lighting was provided from a single Lencarta 300 flash fitted with an Elinchrome softbox.

Working with Sarah is always a pleasure and our next project has now been planned and dates are being finalised.
