Express myself through different form of art.
Hi I'm Kay, Founder & Head up a team of professional makeup artists, Hairstylists and Photographers at PKay Bridal. I cover UK and internationally, I'm based in Herts & Essex.
From someone who worked myself toward a maths and science major, I accidently fell in love with the world of art just before I entered university. After graduating in Graphic design, Illustration and Marketing, I started off my Makeup career in 2010 with Editorial, Fashion and Beauty photoshoots. Since then it has been over 10 years, my experience working on PhotoShoots has given me wonderful opportunities to work with many different talented photographers, who are best in their specialised fields, such as Katherline Lyndia - one of the finest Swiss photographers, Martin Higgs - one of British best beauty photographers and Eric Chezn - amazingly talented French Fashion photographer.
I have also worked and trained with many top Brands, e.g. Dior, YSL, Urban Decay and many more. Inspired by a world filled with art, I love the thrill and challenge of getting creative. Aside from Editorial work I have found that tailor made Bridal and Special Occasion make-up is my favorite - using both traditional and Airbrush make-up techniques.
I regularly top up my knowledge by attending masterclasses with MAC PRO, Illamasqua, Nars and have attended intensive training courses with well known Make-up artists, such as Lan Nguyen Grealis, Jo Sugar (Airbrush lessons), Claire De-Graft (HD makeup for TV, Film and Celebrity), and Sandra Cooke (Editorial makeup training).
At university photography formed part of my course, it was a lot of fun using a traditional film camera from the start to finish... developing the film in the dark room, and watching the images that you last saw through the lens come to life on paper. Later, as a makeup artist who has worked with many brilliant photographers, I took every chance to act as their assistant - helping with lighting, capturing ‘behind the scene’ images and more general things on set...this provided me with a wonderful opportunity to learn many things about photography first hand over the years.
I travel a lot for both work and holidays and have always enjoyed capturing images of the landscapes, scenery and people I met there - around 2016 I realised that more and more I was seeing and expressing the world through a camera lens, and I decided to take that love and turn it into a career.
As a photographer now, I am inspired by a world filled with creativity, interesting subjects, products (I’m a sucker for innovative packages ever since I studied product design), food, and travel and the impulse to capture the beauties of it all. My work reflects my peculiar interest in beauty, fashion and travel.
