A few of you may know, last month I moved into a rather trendy part of Milton Keynes – the Hub. My first Saturday morning was spent in a gorgeous little coffee shop less than 100ft from my front door. As I sipped my coffee, surfing Facebook on my iPad, in walked Rachel.

A gorgeous girl with an amazing look, and legs and hair that go for miles. I thought there’s no way she wasn’t a model. I couldn’t leave without turning her into one, in any case.

A few weeks later, we finally got round to collaborating. Leaving the great British weather outside, we used the gorgeous floor-to-ceiling windows and my amazing new Sigma 35mm f1.4 lens to see my apartment in a whole new light. I don’t think I’ll ever put that lens down.

My god this girl has some talent. I hope you like the results as much as I do. Just you wait until our next project…
