In the spotlight… an afternoon with Claire Menary.
In September 2017 we had the pleasure of getting a visit from Claire, powerhouse photographer, travel and fashion blogger. Claire’s stunning photographic prints are top of our studio wish lists, and we love hearing the stories behind her travels. Since our first meeting, Claire’s been to many a Matthew Calvin event and has become a regular studio visitor. Colin (always eager for a fresh face in the studio) is always thrilled by Claire’s visits, and we know he’s a good judge of character! We caught up with Claire to chat photography and jewellery.
