HP Behind the Scenes

***Competition now closed – Thank you for entering*** Do you love fashion and discovering the latest trends?! Look no further…We have teamed up with the tech gurus from HP to show you how our fashion edits come together from start to finish using the latest HP devices. Each member of our team use HP on shoots so why not check out their thoughts and see if the stylish models suit your life? To add even more excitement, we are giving you the chance to win the HP Spectre, based on the recommendation from the photographer on one of our shoots!

HP Spectre

Ben Wedderburn was the photographer on shoot, and he is very particular about the tech he uses on shoot.  As well as taking all the photos, he ensures that the music on shoot keeps up the energy and gets everyone in the mood ! He fell in love with the HP Spectre! Don’t believe us? Take it from the man himself… ‘ The HP Spectre is my laptop choice on shoot because not only is it lightweight and slim, but the sound quality is amazing. Music is really important to me as I need to set the mood for the shoot, with HP Connected Music I am able to play all the latest songs and log in whatever the location.’ So for your chance to win, let us know why music is important to you.


Hair and make-up is another essential when on shoot, so we caught up with our hair and make-up stylist Shell to tell us all about her favourite tech; the HP Envy. ‘With the HP Envy, you can tell the true quality of the photos from the screen which is unlike most laptops. It helps me to see how the model will look so that I can see if there are any areas I need to focus on.’ Shell Sullivan. So if you are looking for a premium quality laptop, with stunning HD visuals for your movies, this is definitely the laptop for you.

HP Pavilion

Our model and stylist are also keen lovers of HP devices! Hannah, our glamorous model, adores the HP Pavilion because she is always on the go and can stay in touch with her boyfriend and family when she is travelling between locations. Becky, the stylist, uses her Stream x360 daily on shoots to get inspiration for styling tips. It is her fashion accessory!

Music has the ability to transport you to any point in your personal history, to tweak your emotions to make you laugh and cry, to remember people loved and lost and helps make new memories for the future.

Music is so important to me as I can escape. If I had a chance to I would listen to music 24/7. It seems to infuse strength into my limbs, and ideas into my brain. Life seems to go on without effort, when I am filled with music. Music bonds people together and creates ambience for example at a party it’s always a convosation starter. I love how everyone can relate to a song from break ups to a wedding. Music is love!
