I’m a London beauty photographer and sharing these stunning beauty editorial images that I photographed that have been published in a magazine.

For this creative project I wanted to create a dramatic aesthetic with a twist. Advertising and campaign beauty imagery is often bold and striking, it’s a great way to showcase beautiful colourful makeup after all but for personal work we get to make our own rules!

I chose to combine my love for crafted and sculpted beauty, with more of a painterly feel by using soft indirect lighting with a hand-painted and textured backdrop. Together with our beautiful model, this provided a wonderful platform to really express and showoff the creative makeup looks.

Imaging making is a team sport! Here are the super talented folks I worked with for this project. With thanks!
