Me and my little crew had the pleasure of photographing Razor this weekend. Razor is an up-and-coming artist coming out of Nottingham’s acclaimed community recording studio CRS. The people behind the scenes at CRS are local legends in Nottingham, they are Nick Stez & Big Trev. I have so much respect for these guys and what they do so I was chuffed to be asked to photograph Razor.
Razor had a new e.p. being released and needed some new imagery to support her new sound. What an absolute doll she is, we had such an ace day together. I had my niece Lucy with me who is also a Photographer and as she shoots fashion and loves fashion it has sort of made her a total legend and makeup too so she stood in on the day when my makeup artist was a poorly girl. I also had my friend and fellow Photographer Sam come along to carry stuff!…….we hadn’t packed light with an entire Bowens kit to hoof around. We started out in Sneinton, yes Sneinton. I’ve actually used the same place for a few shoots over the years because it is possibly the best view of the city of Nottingham that there is…..possibly. Last time I used the location we had to climb over a fence and gate to get to it as it turns out the best view of the city can only be viewed from a closed down pub carpark. The pub has since reopened but they had no problem with a gaggle of gals poling up and pouting in their carpark and beer garden; it wasn’t glamorous but it was funny. Next, we moved onto the Trent in between the Meadows and West Bridgford to use the memorial arches which gave us some really interesting textures, shapes and colours. The last location is somewhere I’ve used for a band shoot many moons ago but I’m going to keep its location to myself as a lady must have some secrets.
So here she is…the utterly gorgeous and unquestionably talented Razor. You go girl. Good luck with the e.p.
