I can't quite get over the fact that I'm already half way through this project! Just goes to show how quickly this year is going. It'll be Christmas before we know it...


So, this has been my second to last week working as Leigh's assistant and the workflow continues. It's been more of an 'Office Week' instead of a 'Surprise Work Trip to Spain' week, but still eventful none the less. I've had little various bits to sort in regards to finance and also retouching which has been very beneficial, however, my main job has been making plans with models to work in more of Leigh's classes in two weeks time when I'll have left. I've mainly been in touch with the lovely Amelia over at PRM Models who's been an absolute delight and has been on the ball with the required arrangements. Furthermore, I also managed to shoot some more imagery of my own with the brilliant Noah Teicher who was all the way from NYC. I've popped a little outtake from the shoot below. 

On top of everything though, the biggest highlight for me this week was seeing my best friend Sam. After being apart for 6 months, she travelled all the way down to London to come see me. 6 months was already cutting it fine, so any longer and I'd of probably had a mental breakdown. All these plans had just interfered with any potential reunion so I was absolutely made up to see her. A catch up was thoroughly needed! We made the most of our time together and even got a show in on the West End.

P.S. Aladdin is top notch!

WEEK 26 - 23/08/2017


Well, where do I even start!? I've been on an absolute mad one this week and it's only the beginning! Some crazy times lie ahead.

I had the pleasure of shooting yet more models this week from PRM Modelling agency in the studios at Central Saint Martins which have consisted to grow on me, however, this was the last chance I'd get to use them for myself so I made sure to make the most of them! I also had the chance to finally assist Leigh on a shoot that was going towards the next issue of JÓN Magazine which will be out this September. My job was to check each image that came out of the camera onto Leigh's laptop and notify him if there were any issues in regards to the focus and the exposure in particular, as we were working with natural light that has the habit of consistently changing depending on the weather. Overall, the shoot was really good practice for me and the outcomes we managed to achieve were fab!

However, on top of all that I got the chance to be a part of two major shoots this week, one being for MTV and the promo for one of their upcoming television shows which I believe will air sometime next year. Sadly, I can't share any pictures from the studio, but it was absolutely insane to be involved in such a high budget shoot with such a big team and to see the imagery Leigh was capturing, accumulate on the monitors. Furthermore, I got to assist Leigh yet again on a shoot for the hat designer, Piers Atkinson. Piers has designed headpieces for the likes of Rhianna and Paloma Faith and other creatives for various fashion runways. The shoot itself was towards his new collection which will be making an appearance at Paris Fashion week with Schroroom this September. It was a real pleasure to work alongside him and his team and to work with Leigh on something niche and unique.
