Derby Shoot Em Up (At the Derby Silk Mill!)

You know me, I am always up for a new opportunity. My lovely photog friend Jaye Cole got in touch and asked if I’d like to do a model portraits Shoot Em Up for the day in Derby, how could I say no? Those of you who know me, will know I have a bit of a thing for Noted Fashion Photographer Nigel Barker (as seen on the judging panel in America’s Next Top Model – yes I watch it, please don’t judge me *cough*). And when I say “bit of a thing”, I mean, “I like to study his, um, work”.


We started at Elvaston Castle and then headed over to the Silk Mill. I’ve never done anything like this before, but I hope you enjoy the results.

First up, models Yemi and Ruby.
