As some of you who follow me on Instagram know, I am currently exploring the beautiful city of Madrid. So I thought it would be the perfect time to share with you an incredible shoot that I did with one of Spain’s most talented photographers Jonathan Martin. He and his wife Susanna came over to England to work to work on a couple of projects one of which was our street style fashion Lookbook that we shot in edgy Brick Lane – How exciting is that!? This was my first Lookbook with a professional photographer and it was just the best, most fun day ever!
Brick Lane is such a cool area of London, the graffiti is so bright and we felt it would be the perfect place for showcasing a street style look. I chose a few different outfits and because it was still quite cold then I wore wintery style clothes. I wore an over-sized man’s blazer with shinny creepers and ripped jeans for my first outfit. I liked the simplicity, the androgyny and the powerful statement of the large black blazer, which coupled with my Pepsi Cola pin stripped t-shirt gave the outfit a New York vibe. For my second outfit I wore a very red couture jacket and styled it with a large wide brimmed hat. I also thought it would be a great time to experiment with garment lengths and so I wore a long silver kimono under a shorter blazer to mix things up and create an eye catching look. Finally I changed the feeling of the outfit again by using a tie to add a Japanese element to my over sized blazer.
Let me know which one is your favorite photo and outfit 🙂
Jonathan has worked on so many great projects. I felt a bit nervous because I am not a professional model and we were shooting in broad daylight in front of lots of people. Jonathan though really put me at ease and made it fun throughout, so much so that it was sad when it all came to an end! From Fashion to Weddings in Paris all his photos are just so beautiful and I couldn’t have been happier with the final shots! If you are looking for a great photographer for a special occasion, for a very important campaign or just to create some lovely memories then Jonathan Martin is the person for you!
