Vintage Portraits- Alice

Welcome to a new series of Vintage Portraits, contributed by the very talented Simon from Alt.Studio in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. Find out more about Simon and his photography on the About page.

Sitter Profile:

Name: Alice Kitty Wink

Occupation: Makeup and hair artist with an enthusiasm for vintage. I style for special occasions, events, photo shoots and workshops. I also organise a networking group for small vintage business owners in the North West.

Theme of the photoshoot: 1920s Vamp! I took the opportunity to try a completely different look. I was thrilled with how they styled me, so much so that I recently had my hair cut into a very short 1920s-inspired bob.

Future use: I’ve already used one of the shots of on the footer of my website. They’ll make great publicity shots for my website and stationary/business cards etc – hopefully people won’t expect me to look like that when they meet me though – ahh the pressure! They are truly beautiful, artistic images and something I will treasure forever.

Simon Hunt is a fashion and portrait photographer that runs Alt Studio, which is a photography studio that specialises in vintage makeovers and tattoo portraits. Simon contributes the Vintage Portrait Series.

By using expert hair and make-up artists and his unique style of photography he creates beautiful vintage styled portraits during fun photo-shoots in his Manchester studio.

“Everyone is unique and has a different taste, no two shoots are ever the same, you can be as crazy or as refined as you like, I like to be challenged in a shoot”

    Alice is very photogenic indeed. I always thought she should have been a model in ‘real life’. She knocks the socks off a lot of professional models that’s for sure! And congratulations to Simon for creating such beautiful images. 🙂
