It’s that time of the year again when the show is coming up and we are left wondering what ‘Black tie’ really means? For our last shoot of the year, GUCFS have partnered with Princes Square & French Connection, hoping to give you some inspo for FOCUS 2018.
The glitz. The glam. The fashion. Fashion shoots are what keep us turning the pages of magazines. But while they may look glamorous, there is a lot more that goes into the production of a photo shoot than you might imagine.
Since 2014, GUCFS has raised over £30,000 for various charities. This tremendous achievement is not down to just our committed members but to you, The University of Glasgow students. Through supporting us, you are donating money to some very worthwhile charities.
Today I am introducing an endearing and funny duo, two pals bound together by the design of an edgy but affordable line of clothing – TAXMAN Clothing Ltd. You will probably have heard of them on campus as their t-shirts are incredibly prized, with record-time sellouts. GUCFS were lucky enough to collaborate with them on our most recent shoot & wanted to find out more about the guys behind this incredible brand.
Today we are introducing the sweet Susie Thomas - the photographer of our GUCFS Model Introducing Shoot. Originally from London, she chose to add a Scottish twist to her academic curriculum when coming to study Economics and Music at the University of Glasgow. Currently in her third year, Susie enjoys capturing the world that surrounds her with her camera, and the least we can say is that she’s got really good at it! It was a pleasure collaborating with her on the shoot and we hope to do so again.
Here is what Susie had to say on photography and her experience working with GUCFS
The West End of Glasgow is full of amazing places to eat and drink but the idea of going out for food can leave a hole in our pockets. However, many restaurants have fantastic deals for students you just have to choose the right time and day to take advantage of it. It can be a mission in itself to sort through all the fine print to see what exactly there deals are offering, so... We have done it for you! (Just don’t forget your student card).
Throughout the summer our team had been hard at work raising money for the Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity. There has been such a wide variety of crazy and exciting activities already that its hard to keep up! Here is what we have been up to so far but keep your eyes peeled for more fundraising activities throughout the year.
GUCFS Model Castings are just a few days away
We know that the prospect of castings can be quite intimidating but fear not, we are here to settle any nerves or doubts you have. All we ask is you come along, be yourself and show us why you love GUCFS just as much as we do.
Need more convincing? Well don’t just take my word for it, hear it from former GUCFS models themselves.
