This was my second time working with Bryn and third with Helena, and they’re the sort of people you can’t help but look forward to shooting with. Bryn’s meticulous brand of photography is inimitable, emphasising the story elements behind the characters he dreams up and develops. Gritty, dark, empowered - it’s an honour to be chosen to portray these kinds of strong and dynamic women. Not to mention, the skillful handiwork that goes behind creating the costumes and makeup looks in collaboration with Helena - it’s hard to not admire creatives who are really able to tap into multiple fields to bring their vision to life. The many intricate pieces of armour and costume I wore came together terrifically, as did the various hair and makeup details (how killer are those green extensions?!). Helena created dimension and texture by griming me up with Essence of Parisienne, which I swear smelled delicious in a very unexpected way, and Bryn’s keen eye for detail brought these cinematic, impactful images to life. Having the chance to work with these two incredibly talented individuals is not something to take for granted! 

Thank you both for having me!
