Read All About Me
As most of you will realise, my blog images are mainly made up of photos of my holding my lil' digital camera (actually James' digital camera) at arms length. Needless to say, not the best photos. So a friend of mine, awesome photographer, Ian Jamieson -you may remember the images he did of me a while back- agreed to do some funky new blog publicity images. These are so I can represent the blog and myself with something better than a blurred and discoloured arm-length snap. Amazeballs.
Ian has been a photographer for some time, but has taken his former hobby into a full time career over the past year or so and did these photos for me a couple of weeks ago. I always feel comfortable with Ian taking my photos - although he is not much of a fan of my gurning faces (the cheesy one above is a good example) - he does have a very good eye for what makes a strong fashion photo.
He took some other photos too in a few different outfits, which I'll share with you later this week. I think it must be because we are the 'Facebook generation' but having your photo taken and published is normal to most of us - so where I once upon a was nervous having my photo taken - now it is quite fun.
I wore my bespoke T-shirt, the slogan is about me, but probably not about what you think. It is not about the blog or my former role as a fashion columnist, but it is rather fitting for the blog - don't cha think?
