Eunice Olumide

Eunice Olumide is a supermodel, broadcaster, curator and an MBE recipient (for her contribution to Arts, Broadcasting and Charity work). I had the pleasure of photographing her for a couple of campaigns by Nu Blvck earlier this year and I’m finally able to share some of these images (see below). Eunice has a new book out called "How To Get Into Fashion” and you can view (and purchase) Nu Blvck’s jewellery collection here.

Sandie Robertson

Sandie Robertson is a trainer and wellness coach whom I photographed several times in the past years. Gearing up for another photo shoot earlier this summer, Sandie decided to go beyond the usual headshot/portrait photos we had done in the past - the ever-brilliant I'll Be Your Mirror was asked to help with styling the session and Ingliston Country Club in Bishopton was chosen for its location. Given Sandie's background in all things equestrian (both as a show jumper and now as an equestrian confidence and performance coach) and her past career as a model it all made sense. Results below:

Govanhill Baths Editorial

Govanhill Baths is an Edwardian public bathhouse which opened in Glasgow in 1917 and earlier this year students from West College of Scotland took it over for a one-day fashion photography workshop organised by photographer and lecturer Lauren Stirling. Govanhill Baths is such an amazing space - I photographed a musical there a few years ago (I know, how random!) and always wanted to come back and use it for something more editorial. I'd given a couple of photography talks at West College of Scotland on behalf of Bridge 2 Business in the past and was more than happy to come along to the workshop to give my 2 cents as well as take some photos of my own, especially once I've learned where it was taking place. Thanks to Lauren Stirling for the invitation and West College of Scotland students for help and donuts!

Nu Blvck

Nu Blvck is a new ethical fashion brand focusing on artisan-made, limited edition accessories and they enlisted the brilliant I'll Be Your Mirror and myself to work on images for their very first collection. The shoot took place in July at the Panopticon as well as a few outdoors locations in the East End of Glasgow. The day was long, cold, rainy and often crowded but we had a truly brilliant team who made it all a breeze. And I'm pleased to say Nu Blvck successfully reached their Kickstarter campaign goal in August and are now working on developing their brand further.
