SAMANTHA WOMACK, HELLO! MAGAZINE

Always a pleasure, never a chore. That is indeed our motto when it comes to work, particularly when one is fortunate enough to be commissioned to join Alan Strutt and Samantha Womack on a photoshoot for Hello! Magazine in Portugal’s hidden Heaven- Juicy Oasis. Home and baby of the iconic juice master, Jason Vale, take a look at the behind-the-scenes video we shot of the stunning photoshoot and for the full images and interview pick up this week’s Hello!

THE STYLE ICON, VICTORIA BECKHAM

Victoria Beckham- the Spice Girl every mini diva wanted to be, the woman who took the surname of the man every human in their right mind would like to marry (David Beckham, just incase you didn’t know). And now, she is a household fashion icon with her own label adorned by not even your regular celebs, but A+ Listers such as the ultimate of pretty women, Julia Roberts.

I only have three Celebrity ‘would-like-to-meets’ and VB is one of them so you can imagine my excitement when I was lucky enough to work alongside Photographer Alan Strutt on a photoshoot with the lady herself for Hello! Magazine at the British Fashion Awards. Victoria was in very high spirits after just being crowned Designer Brand of the Year, and she even complimented my outfit (a Karl Lagerfeld TK Maxx bargain, but whatever). Needless to say, I walked away a very fulfilled little lady that evening, so much so I threatened early retirement until I realised since I was on a ‘winning streak’, my hopes of working on the next Vogue cover shoot with Adele could still happen… Two years later I’m still chasing that dream.

Anyway, bearing all of the above in mind, I am adult enough to admit I no longer like VB- I do not even love VB- I am actually a little (if not totally) obsessed with VB! Her style, her charisma, her ability not to smile but still look super cool; the way she carries her Mini Me, Harper around on her hip wherever she goes. And if this isn’t enough for me to convince you, I wanted to appear even crazier by creating a montage of the Queen of Fashion.

Mrs Victoria Beckham, your Fashion Bunnies salute you! x

Congratulations to Alan for his outstanding photography once again!

Over the years we have shot many beauty queens for magazines such as Hello and Every Model Mag. The shots have gone on to win places and fast-track titles such as Miss England’s Best Beach Body round and just as great, get aspiring Beauty-Queen-Models signed to top fashion and commercial agencies.

Our annual trips to Thailand have proven very popular within the beauty pageant world too- after we recommended our luxury lingerie client, Harlette  de Falaise sponsor the calendar of Miss Galaxy England 2011 Melissa Reeves, Face of East Anglia 2011 and aspiring fashion model Eisha Acton also joined us at Hua Hin’s Sixth Senses Spa.

 

Alan Strutt- They All Want A Piece of Him and We Know Why!

 

 

Between shooting Coleen Rooney and Patsy Palmer for two separate issues of Hello in the last month, Alan has also been busy working with UK Model Folios shooting several campaigns with Miss London 2011 Rissikat Bade for diamond and watch specialist Mark J Walsh, Sytner MINI Canary Wharf and designer Karen Karmody. To add to this he also shot the front cover and inside spread of Miss and Mr Every Model, for the industry’s leading fashion and commercial model magazine, Every Model summer issue, released today!

With the calendar season fast approaching, Alan has a string of celebrity calendars lined-up to shoot which comes as no surprise after the stunning work he shot last year including another beautiful calendar for iconic model Kelly Brook and the 50’s pin-up inspired glamour shoot for Peta Todd. Both calendars were a huge success and went alongside the 12 other titles Alan shot all of which can be found at celebritycalendars.co.uk. As an extra treat for you all, UK Model Folios are teaming back-up with Alan in September to shoot calendars and portfolios in Thailand’s Koh Samui! For more information on this trip or for further information on Alan please contact us.

We’ll leave you now with a few snapshots of Alan’s most recent work for UK Model Folios and some inspirations for your 2012 calendars…
