storyteller workshop part ii - the final images!

It's been exactly 4 weeks since Pratik Naik and I got together and hosted our Storyteller Workshop in London. In my last post I shared behind the scenes photos, the format of the workshop and my experiences of the day that I hosted. It's my pleasure now to share with you guys the finished images from everyone who attended! It's so interesting to see how each person has interpreted the same scene in their own styles.

Look One consisted of a beautiful embellished black gown, a gorgeous gold crown from Misty Albion and a flower/leaf cloak created by myself. 

My beautiful model is Lulu Lockhart and Hair & Makeup was by Lydia Pankhurst.

Look Two had a beautiful feathered dress loaned to us by designer, Kathryn Love, and a crown I embellished myself one winter's evening.

In the spirit of sharing knowledge and showing where images begin from, here are a few before and afters from myself and a couple of the attendees.

What an absolutely, incredible experience it was to share and receive knowledge and to meet creatives who too share that creative passion. I'll definitely be hosting more workshops in the future. If you'd like to be the first to hear about them then feel free to sign up for my news and updates at the bottom of this page!

Thank you for reading and have a wonderful day! :)
