In the studio with Fashion Designer Andrew Fionda

A few weeks ago I had the utter pleasure of photographing the uber talented fashion designer Andrew Fionda. Andrew and I have been friends for a few years now, and I have previously photographed his beautiful chocolate labradors, Parker & Holly (for fun!). When he called me to book in a session for himself, I was beyond excited, and with a brief from him of ‘dark & moody’ we set to work brainstorming different looks and lighting techniques.

Andrew is one half of design duo Pearce Fionda, you may be familiar with their fashion collection at Debenhams. Andrew is now lecturing at a top fashion college, inspiring the next generation of designers. I am a huge fan of his style and work and have previously used a selection of his bridesmaid dresses and gowns for a ‘styled photoshoot’ which was held at Wakehurst Place.

I know Andrew won’t mind me sharing this, but he also said he wanted a good picture for his future ‘funeral card’ and whilst this caused much hilarity (and still does) he did have a good point! I do like a man who plans and one thing’s for sure, when the day (in many years to come) does tick around, at least he can be at peace knowing that someone else isn’t going to be responsible for sourcing a sub-standard image for his order of service!

The images were to be primarily used for work, but we played with some different looks with Andrew changing outfits a couple of times. We started with a more casual & relaxed look in a grey T before switching things up with Andrew changing into a gorgeous white shirt, tuxedo jacket and black tie combo. For me, these were my absolute favourite shots, I think Andrew looked incredibly handsome and the jacket and tie just worked so well for the style of shoot.

If you’re interested in booking your own photoshoot, for professional or personal purposes, drop me a line! You can call me (Lucy) on 07843 092735 or email lucy@candyflossandbowties.com – I’d love to hear from you.
