Ever since I was a child, I've always been in love with fairy tale stories. When I first started photography, one of the things I wanted to do was create worlds through imagery that would take people to a different world.
When I first started thinking about my own stories, I used to frantically write down ideas for characters I had made up myself, or I characters in literature that I had re-imagined. The possibilities with fairy tales are endless, and that's why I feel they are so fun to write or take photographs of.
So, in my back log of fairy tales there are a number of characters that are my favourites. These characters are still hidden from prying eyes, as I feel writing different stories for familiar characters are fun, and recognisable by the general public. Take this shot above of The Wicked Witch of The West. Have you ever seen her looking to good? With this picture I decided to take inspiration from the 1920's and incorporate it with her bright green skin and eyes, and of course add a little magic. She's flawless, fierce, and ready to take out her revenge on the person who poisoned her apple and made her green.
Her new story starts from her resurrection after Dorothy has drenched, and ultimately melted her. Did you really think she would disappear that easily? I don't think so! But years have passed, and she doesn't recognise Oz for what it once was. Not only that, but when she hears that Dorothy has become one of the most powerful villians in the land, she soon starts to question what the hell is going on? Dorothy? Evil? What in Oz has happened?
So, the stories are all written and ready to go, but I would love to have some amazing models to play the characters! Every character is up for grabs (some my own), and it would be amazing for people to step up to the challenge! People really should contact me in regards to this!
