As some of you know, I went to Bratislava in November 2017 because I had work in a exhibition there, so here’s the full story!


The Mountain.

A few days ago I had a burst of creativity, one of my regular models wanted her hair styled like Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones.


The style was a mix of techniques which was emphasised by her ombré hair. The mix of red and blonde was perfect for the shoot.


The location we used was a plain of unused ground on top of the valley between Merthyr Tydfil and Fochriw, a stones throw from the open cast mine.


The outfit and styling were a collaboration of our combined efforts, mainly a skirt and assorted scarves used to achieve a very natural and earthy aesthetic, and therefore giving of a very Daenerys vibe.
