Mystic Magic Mask (Ashley Pearce) is really such a refreshing and creative young designer, with oodles of talent. When he gave me the chance to shoot a brand new outfit and headdress he was working on, I couldn’t wait to get on board!
Ashley’s vision was to shoot in a long-grass field, material flying through the air. Well in reality, all the fields I had in mind had been cut for the summer, but that didn’t stop Becky Golder (model) and Elle Binks-Swain (make-up artist) from walking along a busy main road in Oxfordshire and finding that one available perfect field! And without the presence of gusty wind in the air, approx 30 shots were taken as we wafted and threw material back and forth, knowing I would merge the very best for the final images. Oh, and the boat? Ashley very kindly sent me some iphone snaps from when he spotted a boat wreck near where he lives in Norfolk!
