All Set to Shoot the 60s!
This weekend I will be brushing out my 1930s finger waves and moving forward in time to the 1960s. For those of you who have been following me will know last weekend I was filming at the Limelight Theatre in Aylesbury, creating a 1920s and 30s showreel. This Sunday I’m in Stony Stratford at the photographic studio having some of my 1960s dresses photographed for my web-site. If all goes to plan I hope to use a couple of the photos in the next issue of Vintage Fair magazine. I have a few ideas I wish to explore and it’s important to do these things now while I have a little down time. Next month I’m fully booked with shows and Normandy with much of my July and August sold out too. I wont be able to start filming again until September so it’s important to get all these little jobs done now before I start on my Summer season.
On Sunday I will be working with photographer Colin Aldous. Colin has known me since my dancing days when he was the lighting engineer at the Leighton Buzzard Theatre. I’ve known him for years and back in the day before I turned professional I worked with Colin as a choreographer on a couple of productions he directed.
Getting CDs Ready for D-Day!
Together he helped me create my web-site with his photos so I was keen to keep the style and consistency for this shoot. Colin documents all my dresses in the studio and it’s from his photos we create the cut-outs which is a theme which runs through-out my site. I often use his photos for Out-fit of the week which as I’m sure many of you already know I run through my Facebook pages.
Apart from putting away my 1920s and 30s dresses from last weeks filming and getting ready for the 1960s shoot. This week I’ve been busy packaging up all my CDs for France. I still have to pick up the post cards from the printers for my Liberty CD – but all in all I’m nearly there!
Well must dash as I have e-mails to answer and dresses to iron.
Toodle Pip and Bye for Now! 😉
