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.

My photograph of Zoe Ball taken in 1997 for the Radio Times
She reminded me of a young Shirley Maclaine, hence Zoe's Polaroid
autograph "Shirley MacLaine I wish!"  Congratulations Zoe Ball on
being the first female host of the Radio2 breakfast show! Girl Power!
