Behind The Scenes: Red January Issue

Back in September I styled my first main fashion shoot for Red:

Photographs: Enric Galceran
Model: Madeleine Blomberg at Union Models
Make-up: Eli Wakamatsu
Hair: Simon Izzard
Prop Styling: Hannah Read-Baldrey

We shot in London and luckily, the weather was beautiful so we managed to get some gorgeous daylight in the pictures. I wanted a backstage filmset vibe, and we shot at Shepperton Studios:

The studios were full of areas with disregarded moulds and props!
Hannah Read-Baldrey was the prop stylist on the day and sourced all the ladders, vintage trunks, mirrors and old photos for us. Check out her blog, Couture Craft full of amazing DIY crafts.

The theme was nude colours mixed with sparkle accessories...
I mixed the model shots with still-life photographs of amazing sparkly accessories, shot on a gold glitter background (which, of course, I made myself!):

  1. Wow well done, stunning pictures. It's really interesting to see how it all works behind the scenes - I would never even thought you have to make the backgrounds! x

    1. Thank you! Yes, so much that goes on behind the scenes - I used to think it was just picking pretty clothes.....that's still a huge part of it, but it's also fun to be creative with a bit of gold glitter and spray paint, too!

  2. Lovely pictures! Which issue was this in? Going to trawl through my back issues and have another look... x
