During the scorching UK heatwave, I stepped out for a shoot with local model, Kasia Hawkes at the beautiful Royal Fort Gardens, in Clifton.
The theme was simple. Summer fashion with a playful edge. All clothing was sourced from the high street and charity shops, proving that looking good doesn’t have to break the bank.
Here are the final images published in the August Fashion edition of Elegant Magazine.
It was a really fun shoot and Kasia was full of energy and life. I look forward to shooting with Kasia again in the near future.
I am loving the heatwave! Yes, truly. The summer sunshine gives me such a buzz of energy and I couldn’t wait to get out and shoot. Louella suggested the stunning Royal Fort Gardens, right in the heart of the city. I had driven past it many times, on the school run collecting my younger brother but had never noticed the gardens. What better way to spend a sunny afternoon during the Bristol heatwave.
Shooting in harsh sunlight can be a challenge. I didn’t want to waste the opportunity to shoot in this glorious sunshine, so compensated by shooting in the shadier areas of these amazing botanical gardens just a stones throw from the hustle and bustle of Park Street.
Victorian houses and painted doors. Two of my favourite things.
