In 1993, Day was commissioned by Alexandra Shulman to photographe Kate Moss for the June issue of the British edition of Vogue. She photographed the young model (19 at the time) in her flat with her then boyfriend, fashion photographer Mario Sorrenti. For the story, Moss had an argument with her boyfriend just before the shoot and shows a vulnerability that contributed to making these images one of the most iconic of the 1990s.

Today’s weather was amazing for February…18 degrees! We had all the windows opened in the house, had lunch outside on the deck and then I grabbed my camera and took the girls for a photoshoot at the skatepark. Here is a sneak peek of what we got up to until I get the time to edit all of them.

Travelling plans 2017 + photoshoots

One of the five feel-good things I wanted to do in 2017 was travelling so I got mega organised last month and booked ahead our family holidays for the months ahead. I will also be back in Paris in March to do a few portrait sessions like I did for Iris and Catherine and I’m waiting to hear back from clients about London and maybe Greece. So if you would like to book a photoshoot with me while I’m in Lisbon, Comporta, Paris, Marrakech, Bali or Hossegor let me know. Have a great weekend!

In January this year, I attended a great photography workshop run by my friend Emily Quinton, who incidentally released a great book on independent makers a few months ago. During the workshop, we had to style a shot so I gathered a few things borrowed from my fellow students and came up with the styling above.

On Saturday, I attended a photography workshop run by Emily Quinton and what a treat it was. I have meant to pick up my camera again for some times now but I was quite disappointed by the course I took last year at the London School of Photography and being too busy with the shop I put it off for another year.
