Simon of Alt.Studio, Manchester had been uploading sneaky peeks of all the tattoo portraits and vintage makeovers on the studio’s Facebook page and I was just itching to feature them! It didn’t take much convincing when Simon asked me if I’d like to nip in one Saturday and get a feel of what it’s like to be photographed in the studio. I gave a big YES and one sunny Saturday I travelled to Manchester’s northern quarter with a suitcase of goodies – ready to meet Simon and Nikki Armstrong of Make It Up.
(Did I mention that my hair colour for the shoot was a total accident the evening before?!! I kind of liked it. Therefore, the red is staying!)
Right around the corner from the awesome Afflecks Palace, Alt.Studio is so welcoming! Greeted by a huge hug off Simon and then chatting away with them both about which eras of Vintage we were going to get rolling with. I chose 50s as I took my fabulous Unique Vintage one piece and then we took off with a long silk dress from Thunder Egg for a glamorous trip back into the 20s.
I am SO pleased with how the images turned out – I seriously cannot recommend Simon and the rest of the team enough! The day was SO MUCH FUN! And I would totally recommend it! An afternoon of fun!
For a limited time only, Simon is offering the vintage makeover shoots for FREE. Yes, FREE! Be sure to head on over & “Like” Alt.Studio Facebook page and message the page for more details, quoting “Marry Me Ink”.
