Hi there,

So this is my first ever time venturing into the world of blogging, I thought it would be a good idea to help keep update with things going on in my personal and work photography. This blog should hopefully be an insight into behind the scenes of everything.

I’m a London based photographer heading into the world of fashion and portraits; people and beauty have always interested me the most.

I also dabble a bit with hair modelling for Sassoon. It’s a fun part time job because of the people I have met, the countries I have been lucky enough to get taken to for shows, a deeper understanding for both sides of the camera and amazing hair, I can’t complain too much!

I have just finished making my own website, www.racheloates.com, it’s not complete just yet as there are things I want to take down and newer work to put up, but I’ll probably be saying that constantly.

My next little adventure is that on Friday I am off to Bologna in Italy with Sassoon for Cosmoprof, so when I’m back expect some photographs and a little experiment with video.
