**Bird Of Prey**

Picture the scene: a bird soaring on high...this large majestic, predatory species, taking flight to hunt its unsuspecting prey, swooping down from the sky with deadly accuracy.

What a powerful vision and one that started my creative juices flowing!

Having kept exotic parrots for many years, I’ve always been fascinated with birds, especially owls, falcons, hawks and eagles. Their glorious coloured feathers, their strong destructive beaks and their eyes which are so expressive yet oh-so menacing. You have no idea what they are thinking, attacking at any given moment, making them extremely unpredictable. However, I love unpredictable and this would lead to an unusual shoot, even by our quirky standards!



Naturally, my bird of prey would have to be colourful and glittery, the more colours and sparkle, the better! I sourced some rather pretty feathers in the colours of the rainbow. My latex beak was custom made and I purchased a pair of orange contact lenses, along with a spiky black wig.

Armed and dangerous, with industrial amounts of glitter and paint at her disposal, our talented SFX Makeup artist Beth was set to swoop into action, to bring my mood board and this bird’s eye-view and vision to life!

I was transformed into a glorious bird of prey, ready to take flight into the studio and captured on screen...
