This months featured fine art nudes and fashion photography image
I shot this image for one of London's top bridal wear designers Phillipa Lepley over 20 years ago. It was featured in Brides Magazine as an advert for Phillipa's couture bridal wear company.
At this time I was shooting for many of the top brands in bridal wear such as Catherine Raynor, Ritva Westernious, Eleni Costi plus many more of London and European top bridal wear couture designers and the manufacturers bridal gowns, brides maids dresses and mother of the bride outfits.
The image left was shot in the conservatory at Syon Park, London using just the available light and reflectors. Shot on black and white film, not digital so no retouching at all.
