It is always great to see a great face to work with. When I saw Taiwo I really thought she had a face with interest. In these circumstances I send a polite message and wait. Often I wait and never get a reply. Taiwo replied and it was All Systems Go! We organised a day and on we went. Taiwo means she is a twin. Surprisingly she was not the first Nigerian twin I have shot with. The day was great and we got on very well with plenty of creative ideas flowing. The real winner was the purple scarf which brought something very different to what we were doing and it created a terrific part of the atmospheric headshots. Taiwo with her height, ambition and personality will attract attention in the future.

Sometimes shoots arranged at very short notice turn out to be shoots full of spontaneity. My latest studio shoot with the hugely talented singer was just that. Shooting with Abi always has so much conversation too which just makes everything flow. The main purpose was to create some images which will help promote Abi as a Jazz and Contemporary singer. One of my ideas was to create an almost stage-like feel by being creative with lighting. This was a success and Abi used some of the images very quickly to create posters for her debut headlining jazz gig. Of course the shoot would not be complete without a deviation to bring out the model Diva as well as the singing Diva. We finished with some more contemporary style and our fantastic day was complete. Abi as well as being a very talented singer is a very warm and colourful personality who makes people light up with joy.
