Originally from Lincoln, UK but been living in Blackpool - I am currently studying BA(hons) Photography here in Blackpool.
I'm married to a WONDERFUL american guy so I'm often found travelling backwards and forwards to see his family in PA.
My photography has built up slowly from a hobby to now I get paid work that I suppliment by working part time.
I've never had any training in hair and makeup but many of my shoots have seen me doing the makeup and hair for fashion shoots and clients. If people are interested in learning how I create any of my looks let me know and I'll post a How-To. Likewise I've also grown adept at my favourite skill of 'bodging' haha I've had to make so many props and accessories for shoots - from steampunk chokers to fairy-tale crowns and fur wraps.
I'm aiming this year to start making my own clothes becuase as a size 18/20 who is OBESESSED with fashion, it pisses me off that so many high street stores like Topshop, miss selfridge etc all stop at a tiny 16. I'm big yes. I know clothes won't fall the way the designer intended when I wear them. But that doesn't mean I don't know how to style myself well and flatteringly. So I want to finally be able to make the items of clothes I spend days fruitlessly hunting for in my size or in a version that will work with my body.
I can also post How-Tos on photoshop based projects, retouching and some studio/lighting and photography advice.
Let me know what you might be interested in and I'll post it asap. If not you'll have to wait til I get round to posting new things ;)
Oh and chances are, if I've faved your how-to I may be creating a version to be used in a shoot =)
