Shoot at Thornton Abbey with Liv Free

24th October 2015
Another model who's work I have always admired is Alivya V Free (Liv).
Liv is based in Lincoln and as she lives quite a way from me I arranged a shoot nearer to where she lives, after some research I settled on the fabulous Thornton Abbey Gatehouse at Thornton Curtis in Lincolnshire, an English Heritage property which makes a small entrance charge if you are not a member.

Liv is the complete package, a model, hairdresser, makeup artist and headdress designer / creator, if that is not enough her sister designs and makes period dresses.

The gatehouse is a fabulous building in very good condition with roof and windows, even heating, unlike the abbey nearby which is a virtual ruin.

Liv was able to provide 2 costumes with headdresses she had made, both were brilliant, had a great time with an accomplished model, time flew and after 2 hours we hadn't quite finished so over-run closing time by 15 minutes which didn't go down well with the Site Manager, but at least I got the shots I wanted !
