Behind the scenes
I thought I'd start a little behind the scenes blog to give you a bit of a glimpse of what goes on when we have a photo/video shoot with Gemma Lambert and to give you a sneak peek of what we have been working on.
Back in January myself and Gemma came up with two pages of theme's we wanted to cover in our shoots and after penciling in the dates for the shoots we wanted to do Gemma went away to think how she could incorporate these themes into her nail designs. As a photographer it's great to work with people who put so much passion and creativity into what they do as it really shows through in the final shots and I know that when the date of the shoot arrives Gemma will come into the studio fully prepared with fantastic nail designs and props for the shoot. Our team is completed by Adam Lambert who creates the stunning hair make-up that you see in the pictures. We've worked on a few shoots together for Nail Angel and I always look forward to working with them as it's guaranteed to be fun and creative and although we plan the theme's of our shoots I don't know until the day of the shoot what the nails will be like or what props Gemma will bring with her so it's always exciting to see how she has interprated the theme.
Our most recent shoot on Wednesday (16th June) is one that I've been wanting to do for a while as it's a theme that is going to pan out over the next few shoots. The main feature for this shoot was chocolate, lots and lots of chocolate!
I'm sorry to keep you in suspense but I'm not going to reveal what the theme is just yet but maybe you'll be able to work out what it is as the series progresses but here's a couple of pictures from the shoot including a sneaky look at the final nails...
