I met Dee a while back at a party (she's the sister of a friend of mine), and I think within 10 minutes (generous estimate) I'd begged her to model for me. We eventually managed to get our diaries to coincide a few weeks back and decided as a first location to see what Brick Lane had to offer in the way of interesting backdrops. I love the contrast of super elegant girl against vintage doorways and wildly coloured graffiti.
We had a cracking afternoon looking for fab spots to shoot, gossiping madly, chatting up batty old men (see below) and in Dee's case, fending off a couple of offers of marriage on the spot. For sure we'll be collaborating again in the near future - on something a bit more arty and interesting now that the mad wedding season has got quieter and there's time to think. In the meantime, here are some of my fave shots of a truly gorgeous girl. Hope you like!
