THE RIGHT STYLE
THE RIGHT SALON
At Lilygrey we specialize in all aspects of hairdressing and we are market leaders
with the current trends. It can be very easy to get locked into one look as that
may be your comfort zone. A fringe is a great way of changing it up without
going mad with colour or losing to much length.
We have put together a guide to help make the decision easer and take away
some of the risk. Adding fringe to your hairstyle can be a fun way to change
your look and freshen your style.
Now that you’ve figured out the right style, remember these things
Find the right salon. If at any point you are not happy always remember, be loyal to your hair not
to a salon.
Your fringe will require maintenance to keep it looking sharp. Trim your fringe every two to three
weeks to maintain the right length.
You’ll need to wash your fringe often. Your fringe will be against your skin, so regular hair washing
will prevent oil build-up both in your hair and on the skin of your forehead. If you’re pinched for
time, try spot washing your fringe in the sink.
Finally, you’ll need to style your fringe every morning. There’s no get-up-and-go with this cut. To look
good, you’ll need to give your fringe some attention!

HOW HIS PASSION FOR
TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY SOON
DEVELOPED INTO A NEW
A Q&A WITH
14 IMSAVVY.CO.UK - NOVEMBER 2018 ISSUE PHOTOGRAPHY
Tell us about yourself?
I grew up in Oxford and came to Derby to study after completing
an engineering apprenticeship. 17 years, 2 children and 1 dog
later and I’m still here. Derby certainly grows on you, it’s great for
beautiful countryside and its unique location makes it easy to
access opportunities in the surrounding cities.
Have you always been into photography?
I have always enjoyed taking photos but had never really
considered it as a profession until I took a one-year trip around
the world, where I became hooked on travel photography. After
that, I decided to invest in some equipment and dedicate time
learning the fundamentals. Shortly after that I was shooting my
first solo wedding and taking on small commercial projects.
So what type of photography do you specialise in?
Over the years I have shot a lot of weddings, portraiture and
families. But, more recently, I have made the conscious decision
to focus on commercial photography. I now have a large fully
equipped studio located in Derby’s award-winning Cathedral
Quarter, with the facility to shoot anything from products to
portraiture and everything in between.
So quite a varied amount of work then?
Yes, but you find that helps keep things interesting and pushes
you forward. There’s always a crossover, as at the end of the day
it all comes down to how you use the light; the basic principles
apply whatever the subject is.
What’s the best part about your work?
There’s a lot to love about this job: the variety, the satisfaction of
creating something, collaborating with different people and, at
times, the travel opportunities. Seeing your work in print either
on a billboard or in a magazine is always a great feeling too.
I understand you teach photography too?
Yes, I have taught at least 180 people over the years, both
students and adults. If anything, it has helped me develop.
Constantly giving feedback to others helps you to also reflect on
your own work and keeps you on your toes. Anyone who has had
to teach others their own discipline will be able to relate to this.
It’s rewarding when you see the improvement in your student’s
photography over time, and even better when you see them go
on to study the subject further.
Do you see much of a future for professional photographers,
what with the constant developments in phone and entry
level camera technology?
We all know that anyone with a smart phone can take a half
decent photograph and developments such as the Portrait
mode on the latest iPhone can sometimes fool people into
thinking that a professional grade camera has been used.
However, clients are not hiring a photographer for their camera,
they are buying into your style, ideas, experience and creativity.
These are all qualities that develop over time. If anything, there is
even more need for professional photographers today, as pretty
much every new business has a website and social channel,
which always drives the need for fresh, quality content.
Any tips for people looking to improve their photography?
One of the first things I tell my students is use your legs. Get close,
move back, crouch down, stand tall. But one of my favourite
quotes comes from National Geographic photographer, Jim
Richardson, “If you want to be a better photographer, stand in
front of more interesting stuff.” I think that’s pretty solid advice.
