Alternative Fashion Cherry Blossom Musician Shoot for Megan Valentine
Each month I produce a fashion article for popular culture magazine MyM Magazine. This is the editorial arm of MCM Comic Con, which you'll be familiar with if you're a fan of movies, manga, games and general geeky stuff (like me!)
For the May issue I collaborated with singer / songwriter Megan Valentine (or Megu Blanche) - no relation, turns out we both decided to choose the same last name to represent ourselves! Megan wanted to shoot outdoors and use the cherry blossom, so I sourced a nearby park in Beckenham with lots of flowering trees.
I love the contrast between Megan's gothic dress, blue hair and the delicate blossom - we decided that this contrast also reflects the two sides of her personality. One thing I really enjoy about portrait and fashion shoots is making people feel comfortable, as I know how daunting it can be to be photographed sometimes - especially if you're not used to it.
