New work: 'Submerge'


"You don't drown by falling in the water; you drown by staying there."

Here is some of the work I have shot for my last semester at Uni this year. The hand in date is next week so I can finally share these now I have them printed! The project brief was titled 'Experimental'.

So you may remember the test shoot I did a few months ago which is for the same project. I liked the outcomes but didn't LOVE them so began to think of more ideas and concepts. That was then when I was talking to a friend about this project and became inspired by the raunchy but editorial photos of Cara Delevingne shot for Love Magazine alongside Kate Moss and Chloe Moretz. They were shot in a bath with coloured water completely naked but tasteful.

I worked with my friend Kayleigh who was sooo easy to work with. She was up for anything and wasn't shy or awkward infront of the camera which was perfect for this kind of shoot. I want to keep it to myself how I achieved the images and how I made the water look the way it does etc as I'm an artist and sometimes you have to keep quiet! 

Here are the final outcomes: 


What do you think? 

XO love, Ashleigh x


  1. I think these images are stunning. Very ethereal and dreamy - almost angelic! xxx

  2. Very creative and different, I personally love it! If we lived in the same country I would defiantly hire you to do a photo shoot! ^-~

  3. The makeup is so simple and the fact the water isn't clear is different to other ways people have done this its really unique

  4. These photos are gorgeous!

  5. These are great! I love it!

  6. Some of these really remind me of Hayley Williams in the Monster video but more arty! I love how you've done these! The 4th one is definitely my favourite. :)

    Love, Hails x |
