Hot Tottie

Steph Tottie photoshoot 2015A brilliant mix of fun and professionalism herself, In Group member and photographer, Steph Simmons was recently passed the brief by advertising agency, Ewe, to help to re-launch the new range and website of equestrian clothing retailers, Tottie.

Steph relocated her successful photography business Steph Simmons Photography from the Midlands up here to Harrogate a couple of years ago, bringing her tireless energy with her. To use Steph’s words, she’ll photograph “anything except weddings”!

Tottie were keen to work with Steph because of her ability to appeal to and work with younger models and her flexible approach to photography in her well proportioned studio. The shoot was captured on film and you can see the results here:

Steph’s dynamic approach led to her being involved in casting, assessing twelve aspiring young ladies all with a passion for everything equestrian, but with little or no modelling experience, down to six Hottie range ambassadors. She worked closely with them over a couple of days, helping the chosen six slightly shy, well mannered young ladies to shine in the spotlight. All this took place in Steph’s studio in Starbeck, with professional make-up artists and hairdressers on site as well as the Tottie film crew!

The models commented afterwards that Steph had really put them at their ease and they had thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
