What's better than getting to work with a beautiful fashion collection? Getting to work with a beautiful fashion collection away in the sun. For Joseph Ribkoff's SS19 collection shoot, we were whisked away to the beautiful island of Santorini. After a steep climb to the top, we spent two days in the sun shooting fashion and accessories.

World Backup Day with Drobo

Backing up my imagery has always been important for me. However, it was when I started working on my 20 year retrospective PHO20GRAPHY that it really hit home. I was working with thousands of images. We spent months scanning my older photographic prints, and about a year shooting new digital imagery; all this had to be really securely backed up and well organised. Our Drobos were an invaluable part of the whole book production process. I have a lot of images that mean something special to me. However, this is the image that I would consider to be the turning point in my career. It was the first time that I felt my vision had been fully realised and that anything was achievable. That was 28 years ago. Image of Vicky Brannigan at Morgan the Agency, make-up by Fiona Connon, hair James Mooney and styling by Nadia Pfeiffer.
