I met Kirsty - an extremely talented singer - a few years ago. An entirely genuine person who's the type ready to enjoy life and laugh at themselves. Around 10% of all photographs taken on this shoot are of Kirsty pulling faces or bursting out laughing. I love those messing around shots, they show spirit, humility and energy.
I do not nip tuck portraits, I think photoshop (when used in media) is a bain of our society. It warps people into being afraid to accept themselves, always comparing themselves to 'perfect' people. Fake people. There is no such thing as perfection.
We're all perfectly imperfect. The sooner we all realise that, the happier our culture can become.
