A little while ago I was contacted by Antony to shoot new images for his modelling portfolio. It was a great shoot and now a few of the portraits sit proudly in my portfolio. We discussed all sorts of things on the day, but one thing that he was clearly very passionate about was the lack of older models, especially in the world of fashion.
Fast-forward a couple of months and it appears Antony has found a new agency, which seem committed to redressing that balance. The full story is explained on the Guardian blog here, and you can find out more from the Grey Model Agency here.
The third Monday in January, this year on the 19th, is regarded as "blue Monday" - the most depressing day of the year. To combat this, Batiste UK staged a live SOS service, hand-delivering rescue packs to people who responded on Twitter.
Despite the cold, we were lucky with the weather, and a great team from BMB meant the whole day went smoothly both out on the road and back at Batiste HQ. You can see a little video on the project here: https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10152705680357198&set=vb.95597922197&type=2&theater
