In the December 2015 issue of Marie Claire UK, I shot model Tess Holliday in a bad ass location in East London – God’s Own Junkyard – a neon haven of joy. I was just sorting through my old copies of the magazine and came across it and my behind the scenes pics!
I’d wanted to shoot Tess for ages. She’s inspiring people to embrace their natural beauty and love themselves (she’s by no means the only person doing this – we’re all trying to change things here) but she’s done it very well with her voice and #effyourbeautystandards campaign!
So here’s a few behind the scenes pics from the day!
And the final results! Such a cool shoot and so much fun!
