I’ve been loving looking through all of my unedited photos from previous travels. This week I’m remembering a weekend in Wales from last September, and its making me want to get out and explore again! I’m definitely looking forward to travelling around more sites of the UK this year.
All of these photos are from where we stayed in Wales (in a forest in the middle of no where), so it’s all about nature.
Keep your eyes peeled for more photos from my travels to Liverpool. Expect urban vibes folks.
Guess who’s back, back again? Marcus’ back, tell your friends…
Welcome back to Marcus, who kindly offered to model in these shots. I find portraits particularly difficult photos to take and edit. Therefore these are very much a work – in – progress and advice would be much appreciated!
I’ve been thinking that with each new year I’ll contact people who have modelled for me and ask to do another shoot. Not only will this allow me to practice on a familiar canvas, but a yearly shoot will show how time has changed the model (and hopefully my skills)!
Anyone interested in modelling? Give me a shout! I want to branch out and do less ‘natural’ shots, and explore the more experimental side of portrait photography.
Here’s another throwback to some of the performance work I have done after graduating from Royal Holloway University.
Taking Care/The Water Works was a work-in-progress showed as part of The Student Lock Festival at the Camden Peoples Theatre in 2017.
This show explored the often never ending road to recovery from a traumatic experience as at the time this show was made I was really struggling to cope with my own PTSD. I didn’t want the show to be autobiographical, but a lot of what was showcased did come from my own experiences.
The performance looked at the idea of washing away traumatic experiences, and other coping mechanisms, + so a lot of water and buckets were involved!
Unfortunately I’ve lost a lot of the photos from this piece of work. But I have managed to find a promo shot of me wearing a bucket on my head… so enjoy!
In 2016 I had the chance to go with SYZGY to perform at Forest Fringe at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Thank you for being here was our final year project whilst at Royal Holloway University studying Drama + Theatre Studies. This interdisciplinary performance used a live camera feed, physical theatre + prop work to explore the loneliness epidemic.
This was one of my favourite pieces of theatre I’ve ever had the chance to work on + a lot of that was to do with the group of wonderful people I was working with (you know who you are lovelies)!
Here are a couple of photos from our rehearsal process. I’m still trying to find the photos from our performances so once I do I’ll be sure to post for you guys!
It’s a busy time of year at M&S; our transition collection has launched, we’ve still got sale on + other campaigns like Back 2 School, + we’re already preparing for our Autumn launch!
Here are a few pictures from our current transition in the Lingerie + Kids department (aka what I’ve been up to the past couple of weeks). Lingerie has had a big move around in the hope to increase sales + kids also has had a move around to increase space for our ‘Wild Ones’ school uniform campaign. See what you guys think…
Ms. Jenny Santos was kind enough to send me these over whilst my phone stopped taking photos, so credit her for these pics folks!
This photo series extends on from my last post so think loneliness, performance, cities, projections etc.
I spent a day exploring corporate London, an area of the city which I felt completely lost + isolated in – a very lonely place to be. Just after I took these photos a security guard ran over to me + asked what I was doing… Obviously not a lot of people take pictures of these skyscrapers + office blocks!
