Digital SLR Magazine Cover Shoot

So last week I attended a shoot with Digital SLR magazine. Three of their lucky readers had the opportunity of shooting the cover of the next edition of the magazine I was asked to attend as the professional photographer to offer advice and guidance. I recommended Botias a fantastic makeup artist and hair stylist who worked her magic on our gorgeous model Elizabeth Brauer. There were three lucky readers who took turns in shooting our model and the guys at the Magazine will be choosing one of the images to grace the front cover next month. I took some shots on the day - so I hope you enjoy looking through them!

Face of Cambridge 2008 - Winner

Our many congratulations go to Susie Diver, our winner of the Face of Cambridge competition 2008. Launched in the Style magazine, the competition has been very popular bringing us many faces to photograph over the last year. I visited Debbie Tweedie, the editor of Style, last week for her to pick a winner for us. “All the pictures were fantastic, so much variety. Our magazine follows fashion carefully and it really shows that our readers are style conscious. Together with Mark’s great fashion photography, I found it very difficult to select a winner.”

With the help of some of the other girls on Debbie’s team, we settled on Susie’s picture. “Her eyes in this image are just amazing, and such a natural expression, we just kept coming back to this photograph”, says Debbie.

Susie has won £500 worth of photography from us and is delighted to win. Check out the Style magazine in February for a full article and story.
