My Week at Wed

Some of you may know I am venturing into the world of styling at present and have been gaining work experience at various magazines, namely Closer magazine in London and Wed Magazine, here in Cornwall. Both experiences have been vastly different but equally fascinating and I can safely say I am sold.

Coming from a performing background I have become accustomed to variety in my professional life and the magazine industry seems to offer that strange but very welcome combination of a stable income coupled with diversity and masses of creativity.

It's been a seriously interesting couple of weeks culminating in two fantastic photo shoots for Wed.

Whilst I am more than familiar with film sets, I had never been on a fashion shoot, so this was real eye opener for me. From beginning to end, I lapped up every morsel, trying to learn as much as I could from the professionals around me and was even given some styling responsibilities, which was beyond thrilling.

Not only that, because of my blogging credentials, I was asked to write up a couple of blog posts for their site - I also took the behind the scenes photos for both posts, which you can see here and here:)

What stands out most from my week at Wed and indeed at Closer are the people and personalities I encountered. It was so great to be surrounded by professionals who were passionate and that passion was infectious. So much so, I am now itching to get to London to bag me that dream job.

Dream on?

Perhaps and yet I am feeling positive. Long may it last!
