Aggy G: The Photos

I’m thrilled with how my shoot with Aggy G turned out! The metallic paint caught the light so well and I think the whole visual is really strong. The hair, makeup and styling all come together to create a cohesieve character. I also think the images and memorable and different – which is ideal for promotion.

I’m glad we tried different locations, and I think it’s interesting how the stone backgroud reminds me of Game of Thrones but the plant based backgrounds make me think of Lord of the Rings. I’m definitely taking this as a lesson on the power of the background to effect the feeling of an image.

This dragon armour project took a lot of time and work, but I’m really glad I did it. This was my first attempt at costume making and I’m really happy with how it turned out. This is an area I definitely want to pursue more. Sewing has never been my strong suit, so I’d better get out my mum’s sewing machine and find some classes!



Single Cover Shoot

Some early shots from my shoot with Sylwia KittyFly of Diamond Velocity, for her solo single cover (coming soon).

We agreed to go for a dramatic, red and black look that would suit Sylwia’s personal style and flatter her fair skin. These colours also co-ordinated nicely with the wardrobe Sylwia had chosen.

At the shoot we had loads of fun experimenting with different clothes and hats on the day, while the photographer tried out different backgrounds and lighting set ups.

The look is actually very similar to My Go-To Look, but amped up with a strong cat-eye and big false lashes.
