The Shoot

The Shoot: The Jewel of the Swampland Part 2 – Black Swan

Hello world,

This is the second part of the shoot I done a couple of months ago. This one I’m quite fond of as the pictures are a lot more natural than I usually manage to pull off.


It was hilarious to shoot on the small pier because the family of swans really wouldn’t leave me alone all day. They were so inquisitive, even though I was quite nervous of them as their young were there and swans can be quite dangerous. Not to mention I had a friend who had their arm broken by a threatened swan.

Ultimately it was quite apt that they stuck around for the shoot and that’s why I named it black swan. They are beautiful creatures.
Let me know what you think of it.

Until then,




Fresh out of college with an MA in Journalism, a passion for clothes, fashion and styling shoots, I was also the fashion editor of a magazine my colleagues and I set up called SCOPE magazine, which was disbanded three years ago. For now I'm just a freelance journalist and blogger.
Other than obsessing about fashion, I love theology and history, writing apocalyptic fiction (it's weird, I know!) and the occasional weeekend of horse-riding if I have the time and I don't injure myself in the process.
