The path to stardom could involve a wet day in Bristol sheltering under a red umbrella and hanging out beside a 1960s concrete flyover while having your photo taken. That was the case for Sophie Stott recently.

Sophie needed some promotional images to help her fledgling singing career. She liked the images on the lifestyle section of my website and asked for something similar. Most of those shots were done on the street do we set off one damp day in October. An emergency red umbrella was bought from the local Co-op and off we went looking for some urban but not too grubby parts of the city. We finished off in one of Bristol’s most well-known pubs, The Coronation Tap in Clifton, where Sophie often sings.
