I wish I'd have got some pictures of the studio - it was part of the Radcliff on Trent's Royal British Legion on Main Road and there were around 4 different rooms set up in different decorations including a traditional studio set up. It was so cute and quirky and still had the original gas pipes set into the floor from ye old days and a bell that would've been operated using wires threaded through the building from the downstairs. The studio rooms were the maid's quarters of the large building and had a kitchen with ample room for hair and make-up and a large cupboard filled with accessories that were open for use in the shoots. Overall it was a great day of shooting and the photographer was friendly and made me feel welcome as soon as we met. Faye posed really well and was open to suggestions on different things to try and captured your eyes immediately. She looked striking - and with a whip in her hand I think she could keep anyone in check!
Although these photos aren't as vibrant as the actual studio ones, they give you an idea of the looks we went for and the people involved:
