Sunshine, pretty dresses and tattoos......

Are three of my favourite things! I was too busy shopping with clients to be a part of what looks to have been a fabulous day, however, Suzanne Kentish one of the photographers involved in this photoshoot, was kind enough to fill me in on the day’s events:

Suzanne Kentish:
If you were lucky enough to be by the Bristol Docks on Tuesday 15th June, you may have come across a ‘gaggle’ of around 30 photographers (not sure there is a group name for us) plus 8 models, 4 makeup artists and loads of suppliers as we all descended on The Harmony II – the amazing mega yacht venue in Bristol’s floating harbour that was our base for the day. To say we stood out is a bit of an understatement!

This get together was organised by The Photography Parlour ( and more importantly the founder Rosie Parsons. The Photography Parlour is a new website devoted to aspiring photographers, offering advice and ‘guidance from seasoned and celebrated pros who want to make sure the mistakes they’ve already made don’t kill the next generation of talent’

The photographers on the day ranged from complete newcomers to professional photographers - sharing of knowledge and inspiration were the aims of the day.

Myself and fellow photographers were split into groups throughout the day and set off around the picturesque docks with a model in a style of dress, from vintage to wedding dresses.
