So pleased to share this bit of press we received! I’m a few days late with the news but this weekend has been jam-packed with work and shoots. Los Angeles-based writer, Jason Torchinsky, put together this article for us on Jalopnik detailing The Vintage Bus Project

I hadn’t previously publicized the intent to turn these fashion shoots into a 2015 calendar but now you know! We anticipate finishing the project in August and the calendar will be available for pre-sale in early September, hard copies available shortly after. Then on the 5th of October 2014 we will be selling the calendars at the West of EnglandTransportation Collection’s Open Day, a time when thousands come from all over England to view the incredible collection of vintage buses.

“50’s Prom Night Gone Wrong” (Behind-the-Scenes) by Alexandra Gunnoe

Our 50’s Inspired Prom shoot on the 5th of April went so well. There wasn’t much stress involved, as we had all worked together before and I had a great feeling about Charli, our latest model.  Again, this shoot took place at Dan Shears’ West of England Transportation Collection in Winkleigh, Devon. The theme of this project was a prom night gone wrong. It centers around a teenage girl who was so excited to go to prom, only to end up in tears and catching the bus home alone.

Despite the crazy wind, we were able to pull off some great images. I’ve included some of my favorites as well as a behind-the-scenes film showing the creative team prepping the model, deciding on the fashion as well as clips from the actual photo shoot.

And if you get a chance, check out “My Bubba & Mi”, who is credited with the soundtrack for the film. Their music is amazing!
