Tim Andrews by Rebecca Tun: a portrait session

I photographed Tim Andrews the other day. These are some of the pictures, and here’s Tim latest blog post where he has written all about it.

self-styled character portraits

funny…just saw that in 2014, I’d said that the reason I didn’t attempt a lot of self-portraits was because I was the one person that I was least in a position to take a photo of. (in just a small note about a selfie.) now, the (improvement and fine-tuning of the) selfie camera on phones has not only made this no longer the case, but it’s almost made the opposite true – at least concerning head and shoulders portraits. we may now be our own most accessible subjects.

twin cheeks

I would simply like to make the following casual comparison observation regarding two different photo composites by different photographers at different times.

These are ‘Blue Moon’ by Max Operandi, 2012, and ‘Moon Worship’ by Thornback, 2014.

I suppose I’m happy to be typecast as the disembodied melancholy blue bottom.

Zeitgeber starring Gestalta

During a sweeping visit back to Blighy in July 2013, I went to Wiltshire and experimented with taking video footage on a Canon 5DmkII with a Lensbaby Muse.  Consequently here’s a little atmospheric semi-narrative music video for my friend Eigenfrequenz’s song ‘Frequenz 18: Zeitgeber’, starring Gestalta as (according to my ad hoc analysis) a “romantic but morbid girl, a bit of a loner, lost in her own world and somewhat obsessed with death” floating around in the swelteringly hot rural English summer meadows thinking dark thoughts.

Mary Martin London Fashion Show – David Bowie tribute

A blog post by Elena Tun

We were beyond excited when we were invited to Mary Martin’s fashion show in tribute to David Bowie. We were also curious to see how she would pull it off; few pop and fashion icons are adored and revered as much as Bowie, so it is a difficult inspiration to live up to. Continue reading


Teeside Artist

…this article by Sinclair Gordon talks about Andy Green’s fantasy and location photography. I appear here in some of Andy’s most recent (2014) work: ‘MAIDEN GUARD’, ‘NETS AND SHADOWS’, and my own favourite ‘NOR TODAY MR WOLF’ [sic – let’s assume the wolf had been pestering me on more than one occasion], as well as many of my esteemed model peers such as Ivory Flame, Raphaella, Ella Rose and Roswell Ivory, to mention just a few.

‘Over Your Head’ by Team Foul – behind the scenes write-up

In July I returned to my childhood neighbourhood of South East London to shoot a quirky rap video with rap duo Ley and Lucky who perform under the name of Team Foul. I’d never acted in a music video for a song with words before, and the brief was quite vague – the plan was to make it up as we went along. It was real novelty, a challenge, and an unusual opportunity. Continue reading


time flies like a naughty kitty

My sister Elena Tun recently started modelling. In her style she couldn’t be more different from me; classic, ladylike, and immaculately glamorous with a penchant for the traditional and the retro. On more than on occasion we’ve enlisted the help of our  make-up artist Hollie Berry who is also an impressive hair stylist and style advisor.
