Holler!! Golly, my days and evenings have been quit busy as of late. As you all know I do love a shoot and use my spare time involving myself in projects that get my creative juices flowing. It mostly started as being interested in photography then through that branched out into photo editing, graphic design and set designing. Even just yesterday I found myself assisting in some video camera work! Doing this sort of stuff really makes me happy, so let me share what some of these projects are.
As longer readers of my blog know, I collaborate a bit with my dearest friend's brand Benjart Clothing. This is us on set shooting some of their new collection. Let me tell you, photographing a tshirt can be quite tricky some times! You really need to style it right, keep an eye out for wrinkles, make sure the details are sharp and that most things look symmetrical.
My Fiance has a Video Product company called Pinyata and they specialize in creating video content for all types of clients, many being charities. I helped them recently in prop design for a scene in an Anti Bullying campaign they were filming. Looks pretty sweet, huh?
Lastly, I love a good old look book shoot. I have done some similar projects before which you can see here. This image above was for the 25+ Community at my Church. The ministry Velocity have some products designed by some talented cats part of the church that are on sale at events. Chris and I worked together again on this. More of the photos from this shoot can be found at the Velocity FB page.
Like I said before, I am all about shizz like this. If you are interested in collaborating on a project hit me up on the contacts page and we could possibly work together in 2014!

For lounging with the crew or dressed up with a cute blouse the short is super versatile. Also keep an eye for the matching tops if you wanted the full head to toe (or should I say thigh) look!
We headed to the beautiful Island of Tablas to capture the latest looks of The Bamboo District's latest summer offerings. Beautifully patterned button up shirts, everyone's favourite Kimono sleeve multiway and cute mini shorts in luscious colours, the laid back tropical lifestyle is definitely brought right to you.

It's fantastic how things come back round again. While looking at the edits from NY and London fashion weeks it looks like our dear friend Peplum has popped up to say hello. Seen in Burberry and Mary Katrantzou, this little waist detail will be popular for the rest of the year, over summer and back again when it's cold. Have a look at one of The Bamboo District's Peplum offerings circa 2009. More to come this summer!

I wore this top on a night out not that long ago and it reminded me that this was my first ever 'bambooesque' piece I had altered. I was 17 and in 6th form and cut it out of an old dress that was laying about in the house. I couldn't sew then so I had to pin down the neck line with safety pins. I still love it to this day.
Winter head wrap anyone?
The dreaded Autumn is looming and design wise we at the Bamboo hut get a little quiet as translating our sunny vibe becomes difficult. Well in terms accessories this isn't much the case, the original idea of the knotted headband was conceived in the artic cold of London circa Dec 2009, and is still very popular to date...
