The Star


PHOTOGRAPHER – Ian Butterworth
CLIENT – The Star
STYLIST – Jo Ayling

Jo shot this festive campaign with Ian to advertise the Star’s Christmas parties and New Years events. All talent were dressed head to toe in black to create silhouettes and shot in situ. It was important to source outfits with enough movement or finite detail that would show body shape, and create recognisable silhouettes.


Jo fashioned headpieces from stockings to cover the talents faces but allow them to breathe. Just. The props were spray painted matt black prior to the shoot day.
