Paul Thomas Bell

I met Paul Thomas Bell, an award-winning blogger/writer/presenter, and an all-around renaissance man a couple of months ago for coffee after a few exchanges on Instagram. We chatted about how we got to do what we do for a living, about the world of social media, photography, music and everything else in between. We've also agreed that we should work together at some point and we finally managed to meet again last month and take some pictures. See the results below.

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!
