The Throwback

The Throwback: Black Swan

The shoot that this image is from is the first shoot done for the blog where I tried to conceptualise a vision and an editorial shoot that was about more than just street style photography. Before, all my shoots were mostly about pretty outfits shot in a standard location.

This was the first time I wanted something more creative and artistic and though the shoot in hindsight seems a bit hit-and-miss, this image captured is actually quite beautiful. The swans appearing in the middle of the shoot were accidental, but considering the theme for it was ‘Black Swan’ it was hilariously appropriate.

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.
