The region’s biggest fashion, beauty and shopping event, Style Birmingham Live AW13, returned on Saturday 28 September for the sixth year with hosts Emma Willis, Rylan Clark, celebrity stylist Brix Smith-Start and special catwalk guest & Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model Winner Lauren Lambert.
More than 3,000 ticket holders visited the Town Hall to see the award winning catwalk show featuring the latest Autumn Winter collections from across the city’s stores and centres, which this year included an incredible snow filled finale scene!
Catwalk visitors were also treated to a printed Lookbook containing detailed images of the 125 looks featured in the nine stunning scenes within the show and where to buy them in Birmingham city centre
It’s always great working on fashion shoots but even better when you put your models in front of 60K people! Well that’s what we did for this year Aston Villa Catalogue shoot. Armed with my team of models and assistance we roamed around Villa Park grabbing images of our models with proper atmosphere behind us.
The second phase of the photo shoot wasn’t in 40K people but it as still pretty cool. Again armed with my assistance we made our way to Aston Villa’s training ground, ‘Bodymore Heath’ just outside of Sutton Coldfield to shoot with a variety of players during their training.
Take a look at some of my favourite images. If your a Aston Villa fan and would like a copy of the 2013 catalogue make sure you register your details for one
I have been fortunate enough to work with some of the biggest names in showbiz but when it all comes down to it I just love getting on the streets looking for those people with extraordinary looks styles and just simple amazing to capture.
I am a big sucker for big bold styles especially when it comes to hair. I was out on the street of Birmingham when I came across an office worker on her break, in a hurry I was able to grab one shot of her which I am very pleased with.
I have applied a small touch up and added a vintage style effect which just makes the image pop.
I will however let you be the judge, should this girl jack her day job and become a model?
