Essential Ruth

Sometimes with fashion editorials,

us creatives tend to get all excited with our ideas and go (just a little) over-the-top. 

With photographers, stylists and makeup artists to name a few, letting their imaginations run wild and free to do what they please.
And this can be great - but somewhere along the way we can lose the essential beauty and elegance of our muse.

Our Model.
Real restraint can really be the best way to captivate an audience and reveal the more subtle allure often overshadowed by loud ideas.

It's amazing what you can do with just a blank canvas and a talented team, when I posted the BTS video (here) yesterday, I promised you stills. And here they are as featured on
