Welcome to our new website. Hope you like it, and thanks for giving your time to read my blog.
This year things are going to be a little bit different for me. I’ll be cutting back the hours I spend on the salon floor, but that doesn’t mean I’ll be working any less. The fact is, I need to devote more time to managing and developing the team and working on photoshoots so I can keep tuned in to the fashion world and bring current trends back to the salon.
I’ve been working a lot with my good friend and fashion photographer Ram Shergill (check him out at www.ramshergill.com). We recently did the cover of GQ magazine with male supermodel David Gandy. Now if you don’t know who is, then I’ll tell you a little bit about him. David is the highest paid male model in the world. He is probably most famous for a D&G advertising campaign, shot on a boat in Italy, with David wearing a pair of ultra-tight white trunks. Truth is, he’s one of the nicest blokes I’ve met and a joy to work with.
I did a fair bit of research for the shoot as David has been photographed so many times I wanted him to look different. To start out, I decided to go for something more natural than many of the images you’ll find of him so he felt confident and would look amazing – though it doesn’t take much for the guy to look amazing. Next, we tried a wet look and shared it with the team. They all went for it and it was unreal. Wet looks are becoming more and more popular – for men and women. Can’t wait to share the images with you.
Oh yeah, one more thing – it was our receptionist’s birthday that day. She also happens to be my mum, and when I mentioned to David that it was her birthday, and how she’d told me she would have loved to come on the shoot with me, he said let’s do a picture for her. I said it would be even better if he could send her a birthday message, and he did. The timing was perfect, as although I didn’t know it, she was out having lunch with her girlfriends at the time. They all went mental, and she’s told me she listens to that message every night before she goes to bed.
So, until next time
