We thought long and hard about it… but decided that none of our customers would want to look 'funny', so we had to turn the camera on ourselves!
One of our wonderfully stylish clients has just received some great news about their work… Blue Hairdressing in York have been shortlisted in the regional finals of the L’Oreal Colour Trophy this year!
We couldn’t be happier for them, especially as the initial judging is carried out using photos that were produced by Bailey Cooper Photography.
This latest triumph is just one in a long line of awards that Blue have picked up over the last few years. We’ve had the pleasure of many shoots at their York based salon and always look forward to working with the Blue team. In fact, they are as passionate about hair as we are about photography.
So, well done to Blue, and good luck at the regional finals!
Here’s a sample of the styles produced by the Blue team:
We’re at the end of a two day visit to the annual trade photographic
show, imaginatively titled ‘Focus’, which is held each year at the
NEC. Whilst the thought of forty eight hours trapped inside the air
conditioned shell of the NEC is not particularly appealing, it is a
great way to network, catch up with some old friends, and generally
immerse ourselves in all things photographic.
This year we were invited by the Master Photographer’s Association
(MPA) to help out with their judging of photographic qualifications –
an honour which we thoroughly enjoy. In addition to this, the MPA also
asked us to present a couple of short seminars entitled “The Art of
Food Photography”. Putting together the slides for this beforehand
made us realise just how much we actually enjoy shooting photographs
of food! We assembled some of our favourite shots into a short video
for our seminar at Focus, which can now be viewed below. Hope it makes
Last week we got the chance to photograph some lovely cupcakes that are made just around the corner from our studio.
Jo popped round to our studio with a box of cupcakes and we spent an hour photographing her wonderful creations. I think it’s fair to say that Jo was pleased with the results as they were a big step up from her own efforts (which we’re not knocking – she’d done really well). However, the real revelation for us was when we got to taste her cupcakes: Let’s just say that they were a lot better than the baking that comes out of our oven!
