'Woodland Whimsy' Shoot

As promised, here are my edited images from my latest creative photo-shoot, based on the huge woodland animal trend seen on the runways at Burberry Prorsum, with a little sprinkling of inspiration from the one and only surrealist genius, Tim Walker. Although a year and a half has passed since graduating from uni and I now work full time, I still endeavor to keep my creative spirit alive by continuing to produce shoots and inspirational imagery; not only to build on my portfolio and gain new contacts within the industry, but anyone who is creatively minded will know that it's just something you have to keep doing just for yourself, if no one else, to keep those creative juices flowing. 
I used the grounds and gardens of the beautiful Chilworth Manor Hotel in Southampton, as my Autumnal backdrop; thank you kindly to the staff members who accommodated for us and allowed  the use of the grounds to be used, as well as a huge thank you to my talented MUA and model for collaborating on this shoot 
My inspirational moodboard for the shoot can be seen here: I hope you enjoy the pictures, let me know what you think!

  9. This photoshoot is so great! I think each picture just gets better in better. Where do I start...I love the fur collar in the first few photos, the yellow tights and how they were styled, and that beautiful tweed blazer with the pink sweater. Phenomenal styling and such whimsical photography!

    Sincerely,
    Sabrina

  16. Hi Amber, thanks for visiting, and for your lovely comments :) Chunky rings are easy to find in Primark for a few pounds, or if you want something a little more unusual (but more expensive) try Accessorize & Topshop. I'm going to pop over and follow you soon x
