Me and stripes have had a good old life long bond. Though thick and thin (literally), in the world of fashion i’ve found a decent striped print is something that can be very much be relied upon year on year.  This statement skirt from Topshop, one which I spoke rather adoringly about here, is definitely one of my more bolder choices being a stripy double wammy in the vertical and horizontal verities (and it leaps out the the realms of just black, white and blue.) Now you may be thinking I would be mad to pair this with yet more stripes but that I did with but with this thinly striped blue and white Zara number.

On this lovely day back in April I seemed to cash in all my lucky stars in the bluebell variety with some of the most beautiful scenery I think Scotland has to offer. Just have to pretend that I totally planned to wear blue on this day to match this and totally wasn’t a fluke.

With this countries mini July heatwave coming to an end and with me now finally being able to function once more, and all of us now realising we shouldn’t have complained that much about it being too hot with it now raining, it seemed only right to reminis on the beautiful weather with a post all about my trip to the beautiful Kentchurch Court Gardens. 

This summer in particular I think I have had a real draw (just like a bee) to beautiful gardens and flowers. Sunny skies and pretty flowers, whats not to like? Maybe its me getting older (should I take out a national trust membership card already?) but Kentchurch Court Gardens has really tickled my appetite for all things floral and summery. With living the big city life nowadays its lovely and refreshing to come back to visits such beautiful  placed hidden away in the depths of the countryside.(totally haven’t been there 3 times in the past couple of weeks :/) 

Not only have I been hanging out with the flowers I have also rather unusually for me started wearing them too. With my new discovery of a fab little vintage shop in my home town packed full with more vintage dresses than you can shake a stick at, It has definitely made shopping trips in little old Hereford a lot interesting (and less purse friendly too.)

Bourton on the Water

Bourton on the Water

No don’t worry, I haven’t spelt the word Bourbon wrong, Bourton on the water (annoyingly) doesn’t have anything to do with any kind of chocolate biscuit. (However I cannot confirm or deny how many were consumed in the making of this blog post). While roaming around the Gloucestershire countryside we landed up on the beautiful cotswold town of Bourton on the Water. With is old fashioned sweetshops and beautiful quaint streets it feels like you’ve stepped right into pintrest as the epitome of British living .

I’m not sure this photo could get more British if I tried, maybe only with the addition of a cup of tea and a cream tea.  With eventually  giving up on trying to get a clean shot with nothing it the background only then did a post van and a horse trot into the picture.

You know those times when on the way back from and extremely long 2 days in London when you spot a double rainbow and just have to jump out of the car while it is raining to get some all important photos? Well that happened to be us this weekend. As someone who is no stranger to a more challenging shoot, standing out in the rain was definitely not something new to me. Least the addition of not just one but two rainbows was a nice change. (We didn’t totally run to the car as soon as it turned monsoon like at all! with lighting equipment and all.)

For one day only gone are the baggy jumpers and large scarfs. For my last instalment in my little Isle of Arran series we’ve gone and got a little bit sexy, oh yes (throws up in mouth at the mention of the word) or I would like to think so anyway. Or it could have ended up more likely with me looking like a painted sack of potatoes leaning agains a sink. 

Anyway, with wanting to make the most of our stay we decided to use the hotel for one shoot as well. 

With my room having the biggest bathroom I have ever seen, with it being about double the size of my room in my flat, I kid you not, it was a great little set up for another cool little shoot.

On our second morning in Arran after spending far too long deciding on which part of the Island to go to, we decided to go right back to the same parts as the day before. Despite being a tad unadventurous, it turned out to have been a really good decision with managing to get some really cool shots with such a dramatic landscape. 

I kept the look simple with this simple marron body con dress which ended up complementing the green and beige tones of the landscape really well. As someone who tends to run and hide under a massive jumper at the very mention of the word bodycon, I was pleasantly surprised how this little number from H and M nicely skims my curves without being too clingy.  (Looks like the massive meal of venison sausages I had the night before didn’t do my waist too much harm.)

Isle of Arran | Dramatic Portrait Shoot

Isle of Arran | Dramatic Portrait Shoot

FABRIC_FORWARD_DRAMATIC_PHOTOSHOOT_ARRAN_CHLOE_KNOTT-31

Before you say anything, don’t worry, I’m acting, well, being in freezing cold water on a Scottish island in the middle of February in a thin floaty dress I suppose there wasn’t much acting needed really. 

Continuing onto part 3 of my Isle of Arran blog series as you can tell this is a little bit of a different shoot from my usual with not graffitied walls or pretty doors in sight. The one of the main reasons for going to Arran, other than having a little explore, was to try and find the right sort of landscape to be able to do this type of dramatic photoshoot, beaches and bog lands don’t just appear next to the Hereford industrial estate unfortunately.

The whole sort of concept for the shoot was that I was a “victim” running away from an “attacker” with the whole True Detective season 1 vibes (unfortunately Matthew Mcconaughey couldn’t make it.) 

From my acting background it was a nice little opportunity to flex that old muscle again, well thats what Tom said when trying to convince me to do it ;) 

As you can imagine it was really rather cold and how I was convinced to do this again for another shoot recently I will never know. 

So sit back and have look at me pulling some delightfully awful faces.

A couple of now months ago (doesn’t time fly) I fully exercised all my newly formed photography muscles with photographing Student Theatre at Glasgow’s production of Posh by Laura Wade. This was rather different from my usual of flower and still life’s with actual people and flashing lights to think about but it seemed my lucky stars were aligning on this day as I was really pleased with the results. 

With the amazing venue of Cottiers Theatre being a renovated church which suited the play perfectly and such a talented cast and crew it was a  joy to work both backstage and as a photographer. 

Through a mound of around 230 final photos I have managed to narrow it down to my final favorite 25 photos (I tried for 20 but I just can’t let them go!) and a couple of promo images too.

SWIMMING_POOL-47

Its not everyday that you wake up at 5am to go to your local swimming pool to put on a red dress and do a photoshoot. Now this isn’t particularly  unusual for me with some of the photoshoots and short films we’ve done in the past, getting up at the crack of dawn to get the perfect sunrise in the middle of a forest. Least this time it was in a nice and warm building, even with the addition of water. 

But this time I did feel a bit of my depth (literally, 3.8m of diving pool depth), with having not stepped foot in a swimming pool since my school days, trying to swim and stay afloat while clothed was a bit of a task. Put it this way, I had to learn to tread water pretty quickly.  

I was rather impresses by Mac Ruby Woo surviving at the mersey of the pool, cant quite say the same for the eyeliner as it dribbles down my face.

My partner in crime for this shoot was the brilliant Arthur Godden, who managed to haul himself around in the pool in near full suit not just a small dress (I have a feeling that would have looked odd). He managed some rather impressive flash and photography umbrella holding while treading water, somehow that didn’t get photographed.
