Models: Five Steps to Becoming a Hopeful Suicide Girl.

I’m often asked for tips and advice about organising and arranging your first shoot for Suicide Girls – usually by girls wanting to book me to shoot their first set (which is ace, promo: my website is here) but sometimes that just isn’t possible, they don’t live in the UK or already have someone else…… Continue reading Models: Five Steps to Becoming a Hopeful Suicide Girl.

How I Became A Suicide Girls Staff Photographer.

Lots of people often ask me how I got into shooting for Suicide Girls and it can seem really weird to many – nude photography is generally and has always been a male dominated profession (three guesses why) so to many people out of the SG loop a woman can seem out of place, plus…… Continue reading How I Became A Suicide Girls Staff Photographer.
