  • I am very lucky in that in my job, I get to work with lots of other creatively talented people here on the Isle of Wight. This gives me the opportunity to be diverse in my technique and style.

    Recently, I was asked to provide my make up services for The Retro Room at Oh So Vintage in Ventnor that make their own brand of vintage inspired designs in today's sizes. A selection of their designs worn by models Abigail, Emily, Faber, Jade and Tara were chosen to be photographed at The Scout Hut owned by Vintage Vacations here on the island.

    Here is a "behind the scenes" video of the shoot day where you can see the models hard at work and having lots of fun being photographed.

    I always enjoy the chance to work with other creative people on our wonderful Isle of Wight and it's always nice to do something a little bit different and diverse. This shoot is something I have been wanting to complete for a while now and Stewart & Lynzey Gibbs from www.stewartgibbsphotography.co.uk were the perfect people to collaborate with.

    Halloween gives everyone the chance to really let loose with the spooky! Here's the accompanying video that shows how we created some fabulous images between us.

    I was recently asked to collaborate with Stewart and Lynzey of Stewart Gibbs Photography on a project that they had been working on for some time.

    Much planning went in to this Country and Western styled shoot as it called for a specific type of location, models, props and look. Here's a short video put together by Stewart Gibbs  that captures the final preparation and execution of the shoot itself.

    Please check out Stewart's website at www.stewartgibbsphotography.co.uk to see the final results of the shoot or check out my business page on Facebook at Isle of Wight Make Up and Face Paint where you will be able to view an album in the photo galleries of the final images

    I was thrilled to be asked to create a dramatic make up look for the beautiful and very talented Star Mystique for her new Fire and Pyrotechnics Show Reel.

    I love the way the glow from the fire and sparks really lights up the make up and brings it to life.
