TESS HOLLIDAY x MARIE CLAIRE SHOOT BEHIND THE SCENES TBT

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!

Hairstylist Adam Reed (and his assistant whose name I’ve forgotten – sorry babes) working the props..

 

Neon selfies ahoy!

 

I mean – give me all of these (poor stylist Grace Smitham had to deal with me trying everything on!)

 

WANT!!!

 

And the final results! Such a cool shoot and so much fun!
