Ages ago Relly first mentioned the idea of doing a Trash the Dress photo shoot. For one reason or another it didn't happen then, but finally we got around to it, and I have to say it was great fun. Relly was an excellent model, full of great movement, ideas and style. We'd come up with a set of ideas before hand, mainly based around the props that a town like Brighton has to offer, the pier, the seafront, the sea and so off we headed getting some bemused, confused and later congratulatory comments and actions.
We started off at the graffiti wall outside the ClearLeft offices before heading onto the pier for a set of photos around the amusements, the gypsy caravan and of course eating chips. Jim Hedley joined us here.
Next stop was the sea front and some photos with the carousel horses, before heading to a stall for ice cream and candy floss.
The final set was in the sea itself, and Relly was a great sport getting pretty wet, and no doubt fairly cold.My full list of ideas for Brighton based Trash the Dress shots were:
On the dodgem cars on the pier
In the amusements on the pier
At one of the fast food stalls on the pier - chips? doughnuts?
Near the green donut thing
On the trampoline bungy thing on the sea front
On the carousel
With an ice cream
With a stick of Brighton rock?
In one of the boats near the fishing museum
At the fish/jellied eel stall near the fishing museum
