Since three years I'm part of the Fashion Creative, which is quite a large group of very creative photographers, models, makeup artists, hair designers and fashion/costume designers.
Every year we have an event called GTC (Great Trentham Collaboration). Many people coming together to do some awesome photoshooting, in very professional environment, often like on some big fashion event - only, we do it for fun and to learn.
Every photographer gets a team of models, makeup artists etc. assigned to them, they develop concepts of what they would like to try and then dress up, shoot, edit...
The last two years we were shooting in Trentham, two days full of work. This year was different, only one day of work, two models per photographer and a location we didn't know before actually meeting up in Trentham - Which made it rather difficult to decide on a concept!
The only thing we knew was, there's lots of greenery!
The destination was Staglands Wildlife Reserve, and it was pretty awesome working there. Even though it was open to the public, on a warm Saturday, we managed to get our work done without colliding too much with other people... I guess they found us as interesting as the farm animals around...
Here my first photos!
