[nggallery id=16 template=wide] This month’s Running in Heels cover story was shot by Siobhan Canavan. We found out a bit more about the people involved…

Siobhan Canavan – Photographer

siobhan-bio-picSiobhan has just finished her degree in photography and is hoping to move to London soon. In five years time she hopes to be plastering all magazines with Holga images! Her inspiration can come from almost anything and she’s a huge fan of Tim Walker. Siobhan loves old films, finding old faded colour photos, drinking to much sugary coffee and making her head buzz with silly ideas. At the moment she’s got Bon Iver’s Skinny Love on replay. The shoot was was inspired by the Holga camera…the light leaks and unpredictable nature intrigue Siobhan, and the team were lucky enough to use somebody’s secret garden for the shoot. For more information see Siobhan’s blog (in the process of being updated), or contact vonievonie@hotmail.com

Having worked on fashion shows and shoots, she is currently living in Newport and working in a salon in Monmonth.

Of course like most girls she love her heels and could run anywhere in them!

Her favourite book is The Art of Happiness by the Dalai Lama and she can run in heels when drunk or trying to catch a bus! http://kasiabishop.blogspot.com/

Joshua Hughes AKA Winston McCartney – Model/Artist

joshua-bio-picJoshua’s cultural inspiration comes in the form of Gary Lineker, followed by Shirley Bassey for some fashion tips! He cannot live without digestive biscuits and his favourite chocolate bar is a Wispa… Current favourite band is Raggasaurus, and top film has to be Basil the Great Mouse Detective. Joshua loves to shop at high street (and credit-crunch-friendly) favourite, Primark – he loves the XXL t-shirts! He hopes to still be alive in five years, although his addiction to attempting to run in heels may ruin this…
