I just LOVE it when fashion shoots have a filmic quality or reference. One of my favourites was in the autumn 2005 issue of Harvey Nichols magazine while I was working there. ‘Femme Fatale’ shot by Grey Sorensen featured a Hitchockian heroine. Its letterbox layout gives it a real cinematic feel.

In 2008 The City Magazine wanted me to do a fashion shoot that featured sports cars. I decided that film stills would be a great technique to use. ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’ was the movie theme I decided to portray. Each shot was styled like a movie cell and again utilised a letterbox layout.

Earlier this year Esquire US also did an AMAZING story shot by Jean-Pierre Khazem recreating Steve McQueen in his different films highlighting ten classic pieces of American sportswear. It’s such a fantastic shoot and a unique way of featuring these iconic looks.

Another take on this idea was in 125 Magazine shot by Perry Curties. Perry took actual stills from Bond films and then added the model over the top.
