Fashion at the Fisher


As we seem to be on a Vintage and Fashion roll, I was asked to cover the Spoil Yourself Sunday pamper event, held at the Fisher Theatre in Bungay by the Waveney Valley WiRE a couple of weeks ago.

Charming Susie Fowler-Watt, well-known presenter of BBC's regional news programme, Look East, was the host for the event organised by two local business women, Lisa North and Gemma Parker, who run the Waveney Valley business networking group for women.


Many local businesswomen set up a stall for this well-attended event, including print maker Mandy Walden, jewellery designer Jane Pennington, master glass engraver Lesley Pyke and Lingerie Indiscrete, whose bespoke lingerie was modelled on the catwalk much to the oohs and ahs of the ladies present. :)




During the event, Lisa was preparing the models makeup for the fashion show...

and a demonstration was given on the importance of colour choice in our wardrobe...


whilst Emily Barclay imparted some expert knowledge on wine tasting...


Some ladies seemed very interested in a cheeky calendar...

 

Most importantly, the event was held in aid of Breast Cancer Care raising more than £800 for the charity!

I leave you with a few images from the fashion show taken at ISO 4000 and natural light only.  Hope you like them!

Bye for now! :)

full post - the Out There festival 2011

It's about time I posted a full set of photos from the Out There festival, isn't it?  Well not quite a full set!  I took about 2000 images that weekend, of around 350 made it to the final cut.  I'll post the link to my two online albums with the images later in the post, but I thought I'd put some of my very favourite ones from the leading acts in here. :)

Starting off with the lead show for the event and the Saturday night.  Nofitstate circus and their fantastic performance, Barricade...







A wideangle of the magnificent Drill Hall in Great Yarmouth with Norfolk performer Whydini in the background


and Whydini in all his vintage performer's glory ...


children enjoying the flower props brought over by Bui Bolg...



and Bui Blog themselves in one of their many incarnations :)


the ingenious ffffrench chefs at the Trolls Kitchen preparing meals for the Troll...



Gregor Woolny entertaining the older kids :)...


who else?.. ah yes, the Indian dance/acting troupe FIPA who had fun scaring the locals with their amazing costumes and wearing stilts...





 


The pirates of Northants, singing boisterously....


The graceful stilted creatures from Close Act, interacting with the children...


and the humans behind the costumes...


the fantastic Magmanus, a really impressive duo...





Eostid Ar Stangala, who managed to engage the locals in their Breton dancing and set up a fantastic performance....






and finally a photo of the kids and parents at the pottery tile making tent...



You can see a full set of images split into two albums in my Facebook Business page here... Hope you like them as much as Seachange Arts did...

Leave a comment about the sets if you can, I'm always keen to receive comments about my work!

Blog again soon! :)

I was very pleased to have been given the opportunity to photograph the Mad Hatter's Tea Party during  Norwich Fashion Week, held a couple of weeks ago.  Norwich Fashion week is growing from strength to strength and fashion conscious ladies in the county (and beyond) and is engaging women from different walks of life in the search for new approaches to fashion.

The event was jointly organised by Becky Hoh-Hale from A Most Curious Party and Karen James-Welton from Blue Sky Vintage events, with a Mad Hatter's Tea Party theme, as both ladies are at the forefront of the vintage movement in the Norwich area.  Although I've not uptaken the vintage approach in dressing myself (I'm comfortable in my own eclectic style of dressing), I follow the vintage movement with a lot of interest - particuarly because I appreciate stylish approaches to fashion.

Together with my good friend Gill Keeble from Cupcakes to Your Door - we left for Norwich pretty early on a Sunday morning to set up a joint stand for the event.  We have recently launched a joint photography/wedding cupcake package that we are offering for brides to be who want two of the very best local suppliers but who are on a tight budget - but that's subject of yet another blog post I plan to publish soon! :)

The event was held at the Library Bar and Grill, which was packed with the public, models and stall holders raring for the catwalk show.  There wasn't much space to move around, however I found just enough space to be able to capture the models in their wonderful attire...

It's difficult to choose a few photos to post here, so I've added a random few as well as a slideshow from the images taken from the day...








If you want to look at the image set in more detail, have a look at my facebook business page here.  Feel free to tag yourselves and your friends and add me to your likes! :)

Bye for now!  x
