New Modernity shoot for Livingetc
It was such an honour to have been part of February 2021’s issue of Livingetc magazine.
I was 12 years old when I got my first subscription to this magazine; I would sit and cut out images to make moodboards of my dream home and as I flicked through the glossy pages I made it my goal to one day be a part of this publication, in any way I could.
Then late last year, I offered my services as a shoot assistant to interior stylist, Hannah Franklin, and she had me on board for the New Modernity shoot.
The shoot was located in a stunning converted mill, alongside the owner’s own holiday home, at the top of a hill. The buildings were aptly named Jack and Jill, and the view was beautiful upon my early morning arrival.
The first couple of hours on set was a frantic race to bring in a mountain of packages and loaned furniture before unpacking it all ready to potentially be used in a shot.
I then assisted with setting up each upcoming shot in a quick and efficient way which was necessary as the shoot was a race against losing the light in a space that was so bright and airy with the floor to ceiling windows.
There is nothing more rewarding, to me, than picking a magazine off the shelf in a shop and opening it to see something you worked on (even if it’s just to know how heavy that stunning desk was).
