“The fast fashion, I think there’s some brands who are too fast and it’s not good for the planet, because it wastes like a lot of product and material. We need a more slow fashion. The Grey Dress – was really nice, I like the Grey Dress, was very pretty, and I styled it in my own way.” Sabrina Da Silva represented by Models1

The Story of the Grey Dress is an ongoing project exploring our relationship with clothing. This little charity shop find worn again, and again, proving longevity in our purchasing choice matters. But who made this dress? Who made the fabric? And at what cost to the planet?

Many thanks to this top team :

Recently our government tried to take away our right to protest, but thousands of people and the House of Lords stood up to them and won! Did you know our government is now trying to introduce another bill!

If you value your right to protest please sign this Greenpeace petition calling on the Home Secretary to “…drop proposals in the Public Order Bill that have already been rejected by the people and Parliament, and to put an end to all attempts to suppress the fundamental right to protest.”

Thank you for stopping by.

I last photographed Kate Orr in the noughties. Together with Jo Bell we worked on editorial and advertising assignments both here and abroad. I’ll retrieve some of these from my archive to share here in the coming weeks.

And in case you’re not familiar with rakesrogress magazine, it is a most beautifully crafted & inspiring independent print publication dedicated to ‘the art of gardens, plants and flowers’.

Thanks for stopping by.

Jennifer Cole @LindenStaub & Annika Dop @Models1 were the stars of this GH Christmas fashion story. Fashion director Amanda Marcontonio put on the glitz, with assistance from Millie Moss. Make up artist Lisa Valencia added the sparkle and sheen, and hair artist Sven Bayerbach created all the quiffs and curls. Many thanks to my assistants Declan Slattery on lights, and digital operator Bruce Horak, also producer Fiona Andrews at Hearst, and the manager and staff at The Dixon, Tower Bridge.

We can still put on the glitz, even if it’s just for a party in our own front room! Life is for living. You can’t kill the [Christmas] spirit x

What a joy to work with the lovely Lisa Snowdon again! I began photographing Lisa in the nineties for various brands and publications, and worked with her more recently here. You may know Lisa for her work in TV & radio presenting. She has also created the Get Lifted podcast encouraging conversations around self-care and the menopause.

Women can often feel invisible when they hit their fifties, and so clothing company Kaleidoscope created their #circa50 campaign to help address issues around ageism. To support this they chose to work with a creative team who also fitted their #circa50 criteria. It was really refreshing to work with a fashion brand who want to celebrate age “both in front of and behind the camera.”

Many thanks to the brilliant team – L to R : Zoe Irwin hair artist, (Wendy Carrig photographer), the fabulous Lisa Snowdon, makeup artist and perfumier Amanda Grossman, and fashion director Tracey Sayer . Team photo by digital operator Gemma Gravett and studio lighting by Julie Stewart. My special thanks to Ed Watson and team at Prew for making this happen.

To see more of the campaign featuring Lisa and shot by me, do check out this great feature by the good people at The INDUSTRY Fashion.

This is Kate Orr wearing the grey dress, or as she calls it “the brown dress”.

My lovely spotty brown dress caught my eye in Primark and became a staple item for castings back in the day. I seem to remember a few of us (models) had that dress at castings. Nobody minded, we all wore it differently. I kept my dress for about 10 years and wore it a lot. It was still good to go when I sent it to the charity shop. I have a few key items in my wardrobe that I have had for over 10 years, and I still wear today.”

Many thanks to supermodel Kate Orr. Hair & makeup by Dina at Frank Agency. Styling by Kate Orr and Sophie Kenningham at Frank Agency. Photo Assisting by Julie Stewart. Extra special thanks to Art Director Jo Bell. Photography by me Wendy Carrig at A&R Creative agency.

This grey dress was bought from a charity shop and shows a ‘made in Spain’ Primark label. But #whereismyfabricfrom and #whomademyclothes? Any clues?

No new clothes were purchased in the production of this photoshoot.

We were the only passengers on this voyage, cruising through the calmest waters on the hottest day.

Many thanks to this wonderful team – models Cindy Robbins at Models1 and Nicola Griffin at Milk Model Management…

…makeup artist Nadira Persaud, hair artist Ian Mackintosh, fashion editor Wendy Rigg, fashion stylist Becky John, the fabulous team of Louise Robinson, Jasmine Perry & Gavin Shaw at Saga, and my super team Julie Stewart & Will Richards.

We sailed on into the night aboard the cruise ship Spirit of Adventure.

New fashion editorial starring Rosalinde at Linden Staub agency, London.

Photographed on location in the UK. We stayed at The White House, Camber Sands, a few strides away from the beach and dunes. We also photographed on the dunes at Greatstone with thanks to our friends at Demetrios Greek restaurant.

Photographed adhering to AOP and APA guidelines in respect of Government advice on working during the Covid19 pandemic. This basically meant wearing masks throughout the shoot, social distancing, separate lunch areas, windows open (and dressing with extra layers as there was snow outside), and using loads of hand gel. On the technical side we used a back-up MacBookPro as a second monitor to enable distance viewing by the glam team.

I love the genuine emotion in this picture of model Kate Groombridge with her sons, Kate showering her boys with love and they feeling safe in her embrace under the wings of her coat. The picture has been selected for HOPE the latest group photography exhibition from the AOP which opens today and can be viewed here. I especially recommend viewing the short film by Catherine Losing, a compelling story of her family’s journey.

Exhibiting photographers have also been asked five questions :

When did you first pick up a camera and what did you point it at? I was ten and photographed my parents on a family day out at the seaside. I wanted to know how it would feel to hold the camera and press the shutter, and perhaps more importantly I had begun to realise the importance of documenting a chosen moment.

What inspires you? My inspirations constantly change. Today they are most definitely family, friends, faces, love, light, scent, touch, emotion, laughter, a secret path, big sky, trees, the sea, changing seasons, setting sun, dawn, the past, the future.

What’s been your favourite location for a shoot? Iceland and Dungeness.

If you had a time machine what advice would you give to your younger self ? Just do it, there is more than you could ever imagine.

Which of the AOP benefits are most valuable to you?  Friendship, especially with the fabulous women of the f22.

This picture is part of a series titled Heartland that I worked on with a wonderful team of creatives who all volunteer their time and creativity to producing personal projects. My thanks to art director Jo Bell, makeup and hair artist Lizzie Court, fashion stylist Maria Francolini, my assistant and forever birthday girl Julie Stewart and the forever young Kate Groombridge and family. The pictures were published in FY magazine and you can view all images from the original story here.

Six of my images have been chosen for this ‘people’s choice’ exhibition – many, many thanks to everyone who liked and left comments. All 58 images created by 28 photographers can be viewed here from today until 21st January.

Many thanks again to the original team that worked on the series : Jo Bell art director, Maria Francolini stylist, Lizzie Court hair & makeup, Sam Turpin at Production Inc, the amazing Julie Stewart; the team at FY magazine, and of course the most generous and delightful model, photographer, dog-hotelier and host, Liddie Holt (and friends) x

Wishing you all a very happy and safe New Year.

I photographed Alex Jones for Stella magazine in June 2020, my first commissioned shoot since the beginning of lockdown.  Working in the #newnormal means temperature checks, face masks, face visors, individual computer screens, social distancing and the constant application of hand gel.  Alex, who has been working throughout lockdown, was completely at ease with all these changes.  A calm, consummate professional, and an absolute pleasure to meet and photograph.  You can read the full feature here

I am missing the teams that I work with, the small families of creatives that come together for a day, or days or sometimes weeks on end.  The camaraderie that exists in the studio and on location where new photography is created and friendships are forged.
