Shooting With Marta, Times Square and The Skeleton Project Week 27

Shooting With Marta


Last week I had another amazing shoot the beautiful Marta. We had been planning this shoot for quite a while, Marta is leaving England to start her career as a stylist in Poland so we wanted to do something special before she left!


We picked the date for the shoot quite a few weeks before hand and by some miracle it was (I think) the best day of the year so far! The weather was PERFECT and everything came together! The day started out for me by being picked up and driven to the location along with the rest of the team. We drove along the coast to Newhaven Fort where we found an excellent almost deserted beach. 




Although it wasn't without dangers...


...so obviously this is where we set up the wardrobe! :D




The location allowed us to get 5 different looks which took 7 glorious hours! Marta's flare for styling was obvious, as I hauled the giant case along the beach I had no idea of the delights that would spill from it.




During the shoot I got thoroughly sunburnt and it was great. :D Thanks to the wonderful Caroline who assisted us we had snacks a-plenty to tuck into between looks and as we drew to the end of the shoot she pulled out a splendid bottle of cold red wine of which a glass went down very well indeed.


Here are some more behind the scenes photos from the day showing Angela and Caroline working their make-up and hair related magic!









And here are a couple of previews, a LOT more to come from this shoot but I haven't got quite that far into the editing yet.

And huge thanks to Jon who drove us to the location, getting a bus there would have been a nightmare haha.

We will all miss you Marta!!
