WIltshire collaboration

When Happy Accidents and (some) Hard Work Meet

 

Mix a model, a jeweller, a florist and a photographer...

… and you get an morning of chatting, shopping and a collaborative shoot. 

I have to admit to this not being THE most planned shoot I've ever done. Seriously, it started with the lovely Sophie Fisher (Our gorgeous model for the day) getting in touch with me a couple of months ago, asking if I'd be interested in working with her and setting up some shoots for her portfolio.

We finally set a date for the shoot and then a week before I remembered I was doing it I realised we'd not set a venue, theme, a make-up artist (MUA) or anything
Most people panic, but as I am the personification of the 11th hour I wasn't stressed at all, after all, if you don't have a plan then it can't go wrong.

I posted a casting call on my Facebook page for a MUA and although I have made some contacts sadly no one could make the date. However, here comes the happy accident! The lovely Maria from Pinn Studio in Salisbury did contact me and asked if I'd be interested in using some of the beautiful jewellery they had created. Well I nearly bit her hand off! 

On the morning of the shoot I ran into Gullicks Florist where Heather, one of the wonderful ladies who works there, supplied me with some simple flowers for the models hair. I can't thank them enough, they are always sorting flowers for me at short notice, totally recommend them every time.
You can see the blog I did on Gullicks Florist for Mothers Day last year. If you're in Salisbury you should pop in and say hello.

Sophie, Maria and I met at the Boston Tea Party in Salisbury, (I did a blog on them too) still a favourite haunt for me to meet clients, and we spent a good hour chatting and getting excited, not necessarily about the shoot we were about to do, as we knew it was just about having a little bit of fun and getting to know each other, but about the shoots we will be doing in the future.  

So, the resulting images are what comes when we aren't very organised, well planned out or with an art director. We had no MUA, stylist or anything else that usually comes with a collaborative shoot. But we did have enthusiasm, fun and lots of tea/coffee and cake ( a staple diet of anyone on these kinds of ventures.

Can you imagine what we'll come up with when we are more organised….!

In case you're wondering where the shopping came into the mix, we had a good old rummage throughout the local charity shops and managed to come away with a black pencil skirt, a black and white bag and a rather large orange wooden bangle. It was pretty good fun
