Web Design and Direction for Manchester based tattoo shop. Heart for Art sprang from Danny Birch's mind one afternoon, along with the logo which his fingers just started drawing. In the vintage artistic studio located in Manchester, Danny and his team create their masterpieces based on the belief that tattoos are genuine artwork, and then each one should be unique, with a personal meaning.
They won't sweet talk you into getting something that won't look good on you, and they research designs thoroughly to ensure you only get the very best. They don't just jump in with a needle, they take the time to explore all possibilities and focus on getting that image to crazy perfection.
I think it's important with any photoshoot to enjoy yourself and not make things so faceless. Get involved have a laugh with the models and clients which instantly makes them at ease. And from this everything else will just fall into place.
I've had the priveledge of working alongside renowned tattoo artist Danny Birch to help launch his brand Heart for Art. Look out for my Art Direction style and Jay Cain's Photography on Danny's new site to be launched early August.
As usual a big thanks to Stylist Victoria Jane and Make-up Artsit Rachel Elizabeth as well as Models Ashlee Andrew, Nicole Dean and Paula Vickers.
A fitting model's job is to try on garments to allow the designer to observe the garments on real people and to provide feedback about issues such as comfort.
While doing a fitting may be less glamorous than walking runways or posing for fashion spreads, fitting jobs tend to be easier to do more than high-profile modelling work and are usually also less time-consuming. Generally, there is no special training required to become a fitting model, although candidates may need a portfolio and usually must conform to the body measurements called for by specific jobs.
After putting on each garment, the fitting model may be asked to stand still so the designer can observe the piece’s fit. She may also be asked to walk around so the designer can take note of any issues like bunching that may occur with movement. Additionally, she may be asked to comment on issues such as a garment’s comfort and most importantly how she feels in the garment.
I have the honour of working with online fashion brand MAD.
The website is under construction and will be live soon but wanted to give you a heads up into what they do and why you should buy one of there Tees especially my I-M MAD statement Tee.
MAD aka Making A Difference is built around the core principle of bettering the lives of children on a global scale.
MAD's aim is to provide consumers with a unique purchasing opportunity: quality products that are both socially responsible and charitable.
For every product purchased, MAD pledges a given portion of the proceeds to providing food for a child in dire need.
There is no government involvement. The pledged proceeds from purchased products goes to an experiencedon the ground that will ensure that the money goes directly to saving children that suffer the most. Their own staff are regularly involved in the giving trips, providing them with an overview of every aspect of the process and inspiring them to keep fighting to achieve their goal.
This contribution will not only ensure the children's survival but will also aid their development by means of increasing their physical strength and allowing them to focus on potential education opportunities.
I met up with tattoo artist Danny Heart for Art Birch yesterday and was not only impressed with this guy's raw talent but also is ethos into the process of getting a tattoo done. Check out more of Danny's work here.
