Miss Fairyfloss is the result of collaboration between photographer Dave Lucas, model Jess-ami and makeup artist Sarah-Jane. I first met Jess at a model workshop held by my camera club. Jess was the obliging model while we learned tips from photographer Paul Robinson.

Something I've noticed since discovering my passion for photography is that it forces you to view the world through different eyes. Suddenly you are seeing the beauty in the mundane - in the little places least expected - in places you never used to look.

I needed another lens for everyday use as the lensbaby is very specialist (google it). I'd heard that the 50mm … Continue reading Backyard scavenger hunt
From the very start I fell in love with my little Nikon (1AW1). It did indeed seem like the perfect camera for me. It was summer at the time so it wasn't long before I had it down the beach, testing the water so to speak. DEFINITELY WATERPROOF While I don't exactly spend a lot … Continue reading Evolution
