So I was invited to the launch of this brand new course that's starting in September as part of Northumberland college. The level 3 Diploma in photographic and fashion modelling. They will offer students the chance to learn about all aspects of the modelling industry based across 7 key units; photographic techniques, acting and presentation, hair and beauty techniques, business awareness, catwalk techniques for models and health and fitness. It will be based in the state of the art facilities at The Fuse Media Centre in Prudhoe where they have recording studios, mac suite, performance areas, a green room, cameras and cinema area.
Students will learn about what it takes to have get a career in the industry, it's not just for models, if you aspire to be the person that makes it all happen behind the scenes then this course will provide you with that knowledge and gain an understanding of how to do that.
It was great to see that there is only one of its kind and is based in the north east of England, hopefully this will start to put us on the map in the education and modelling industry.

So this theme had a hippy bohemian feel to it, with feathers, flares and flowers to capture the look. Backcombed bouffant with feline flick for the eyes, pale lips and skin. It has a effortless feel, relaxed, playful and sweet.

For this shoot I made both the mirrored shoulder pads and feather piece. Just a bit of DIY! =]

I love the backdrop for this shoot, captured at a castle, worn brickwork with that red colour that pops out! For this shoot it was about being edgier and fierce, makeup was strong which had to translate in the photographs with the theme.
