Nicole Caldwell

You may have seen Nicole Caldwell belting out "Purple Rain" on the X-Factor recently. I've been a fan of her voice ever since I've heard her perform with Soul Nation Choir a few years ago. Being able to finally work with Nicole on her very first photoshoot as a solo artist was a great opportunity. And a lot of fun! The brief was "bohemian/hippie/natural" so off we went last month to Mugdock Country Park (one of my favourite places to shoot) with Caroline Stewart on makeup duties and spent an evening walking about, laughing and talking nonsense. Oh yes, and we took some photos too. Enjoy!

PS. Big thanks to David for all the help!

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.
