Another teaser from my ‘Urban Youth’ shoot. This image isn’t really giving much away, but I really I think it was quite interesting. My model has lovely front teeth so I thought I would show that off.

L’Appel
Photography: Gavin SF
Stylist: Harry J Bartlett
Model: Jon Vella

Here are just a few of the shots from the day at The Poly in Falmouth. This was such a chilled out shoot and I feel as though we still managed to deliver some incredible photographs. The idea of mystery within the man was something both Gavin and I felt we should push within the narrative and styling to get a feel for this wealthy but intriguing man. Inspired by Dior Homme and an old Hollywood vibe. 
Gavin submitted these images to the Vogue Italia website and they were snapped up straight away !

An overall great shoot to be a part of and I hope we collaborate again in the not-so distant future.

London Collections: Men

Hey Guys
Sorry for the delays (I moved back down to Falmouth straight after LCM and I haven’t had chance to unpack everything and sort my life out again). 
Anyway, I’m back now, settled in to university life again and ready to get back to blogging.  

I had such an incredible time at the London Collections Menswear shows and I got the opportunity to go to some big events and some amazing shows. 

Where do I begin? Well, I went to London primarily to meet up with a Fashion House about doing work experience in the near future (and it went well).
After that I figured I should go see some shows as I had the time and come on, its Menswear?! 

As a lot of you already know, I met David Gandy back in March 2012 and as we’ve kept in touch, he’s been a really generous and kind person towards me and I cannot thank him enough for the opportunities he has given me at the Menswear shows.
I was waiting outside the Topman Show Space venue (for the Topman Design show), hoping to get in despite not having a ticket. A sudden blitz of camera flashes went off behind me and there he was, David had arrived. I said a quick hello and asked how he was doing, he then asked me if I had a ticket to the show (and unfortunately, no I didn’t) he then pulled me to the front of the queue, and went inside, by this point everyone was looking at me, he then came back outside (to more snaps and shouts) and he just casually looks me in the eye and says “Come on Harry, you’re in”… Well, as you could probably have guessed, I was rapturous! As I wandered into what looked like a very chic warehouse building, I was approached by a security guard; Andrew from South Africa, who noticed I was with David and asked me “Where is your ticket?” By this point I was terrified and I notified him that David had got me into the show and he just said “No problem, any other shows you want to come see, just give me a shout on the door and I will sort you out”. And that is exactly what happened, I turned up at the MAN collection later that day, grabbed myself a free beer, met with David again and said thank you to Andrew. 
I had lots of other things to do afterwards so I didn’t get the chance to attend any other shows, maybe next time. Day 1 complete! 

The second day I had a lot of things to do, so I was wandering here there and everywhere around London (bit of last minute shopping and purchasing as many fashion magazines as my wallet and my shoulder could handle). 
I decided to get check out the Hospital Club location where I met up with Callum Watt (better known as Maketh-The-Man; jewellery designer and menswear blogger) and we decided to have a nosey around the show rooms, check out the accessories room and the clothing rooms. After that we decided to go to the champagne reception and press event where David Gandy was talking about his new Comic Relief campaign, the “Blue-Steel Appeal”, taken from the pose made famous by Ben Stiller in the film Zoolander. This was a great chance to meet other bloggers, fashion fans and press and again, David came over to say hello and invited me and Callum to watch Zoolander in the small cinema room upstairs. (Another champagne reception) so by this point I was starting to chill out and enjoy my beverages. Again, another fantastic experience and such a bizarre event, watching a film during Menswear Collections that mocks male models and the fashion industry, with the UK’s leading male super model and a room full of fashionistas, but my god, what a fun night it was, all topped off with a few more drinks and a chinese!

Interview: Charley Speed> Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model Judge

Harry J Bartlett & Charley Speed

Charles Rufus Felix Speed, known better to you and me as Charley Speed, Models 1 superstar and judge on Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model. 
I met Charley at Clothes Show Live, I had the pleasure to work backstage dressing the contestants of BINTM for their catwalk shows. It was there where I was beckoned to sew a button onto a jacket by Mr Speed himself. Yelling at me in a joking fashion for my lack of home economic skills (but an appreciation of my fashion). It was after this harrowing first acknowledgement, (he referred to me as a “helmet”) when I started talking to Charley between shows (as he immersed himself into his Bad Piggies app on his phone) which seemed to be the only free time we had.
I managed to squeeze in a quick interview around all the chaos of hair & beauty, the frantic dressing of the BINTM girls and the management team yelling out show times and requirements.

  • HJB: How did you become involved in the fashion industry?
  • CS: A really good friend of mine (while I was still at Art & Design college) sent photographs in to some competition she saw on a kids TV show, well, a saturday morning TV show called Massive… I think. Then she told me about it and then the first I knew of it is that they wanted to see me and I went to see them as I was art Art & Design college doing… not much. They said “You can do it part time or full time, we think you’ve got a really good look for right now, if you do it full time we think you’re gonna do pretty well”. So I just thought i’d go for it. It was a chance to travel and all sorts.
  • HJB: What was the biggest campaign you were involved in?
  • CS: One of my very first campaigns within about three or four months of signing with Models 1 was Calvin Klein which was pretty much international. Times Square with Kate Moss, it was everywhere. Then I went on to do another three campaigns with him and Kate and thats what cemented me.
  • HJB: So how did you get involved with Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model?
  • CS: Essentially, the winner of the show traditionally gets a contract with Models 1 who are my agency and who are the ones who first signed me up. Back when [Lisa] Snowdon was doing it, I think they wanted to get a new judge on the panel and they came to Models 1 to perhaps get a male model on and they rounded a few of us up who’d had a lot of experience and I just went through the interview process, screen tested with her. They really liked me but eventually at the last minute, the money-men went “Oh, lets get someone a bit more flamboyant”. Thankfully, they called me back again when Elle Macpherson took over, so in a way it was a blessing in disguise and then I got another two years with Elle and the show was elevated by the time I joined.
  • HJB: If you could work with any designer for a show, who would it be and why?
  • CS: [Pause] Thats a difficult question. I haven’t modelled properly like that for years, when I was modelling, if someone had asked me who haven’t you worked for, that would be an easier question. And thats not me showing off, I just kind of… When you’re an ‘it’ model, you work for everyone! Erm, I always love modelling for Gucci when Tom Ford was at the helm because he kinda, really reinvigorated the brand. He brought back that classic, lovely tapered, well-cut suit and I opened countless shows for him which is a big thing when you’re a model. Opening shows is kinda cool, there’s a bit of a prestige to it and he was such a charming man to work with and having seen his visual work to his film, I’ve just got so much respect for him. I did drama when I was younger and I have an affiliation with that. So it’s gotta be Tom Ford.
  • HJB: If you could only wear one designer for the rest of your life, who would it be and why?
  • CS: Probably the same answer. I should really say a British designer, and I have a huge respect and love for Saville Row and that tradition that goes back such a long time. There is nothing like a bespoke suit. There are so many brands that I like in that respect. Erm… I’m sorry guys, i’ve given them a plug and I adore Saville Row, I love Richard James, I love Richard James Custom, it’s very cool and i’ve worked with him a lot, but i’m going with Tom Ford man, as its just my style.
  • HJB: While on the topic of suits, what are your three rules of ‘How To Wear A Suit’?
  • CS: I don’t really have any rules, I mean, make sure it fits properly man. Ok, there’s also the obvious things about cufflinks, just the right amount of cufflinks showing below the suit jacket. I personally like a slim-fitting suit. Anything thats boxy, forget it! You know what, you can buy off the peg suits very reasonably priced and you can find tailors who will take them in for you for like fifteen quid. Yeah? They’ll just pinch the back and it will transform it. Those are my best tips.
  • HJB: Thank you so much, it’s been a pleasure.
  • CS: You are most welcome. 

I can honestly say that Charley Speed is a very open and friendly man, he seemed well up for a laugh and didn’t seemed fussed by the hustle bustle that was going on around him.
I loved working with Charley and the Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model girls and would love to work with him again on another project… If you’re reading this Mr Speed, contact me !

During LFW in September, I got the opportunity to work backstage dressing models (thanks to Claudia Behnke) for Jeffrey Michael’s S/S13 collection.
It was an incredible experience as this was the first show I had worked at for London Fashion Week. It was such a hectic event, but I thoroughly enjoyed the escapades I got up to and we had such a phenomenal team to work with (and some of the most beautiful models you have ever seen). 
Here’s a picture of myself and model, Sonja Wohlmuth. I felt privileged to wear the large butterfly for this photograph as it proved to be a show-stopping piece of the collection (worn by Sonja with the finale gown).
Here’s a link to Jeffrey’s website… you will not be disappointed!

Olympic themed shoot by Elliot Munns (Fashion Photography @ UCF)
This shoot has been one of the most tiring days as well as the most fun, I wore many different outfits and modelled for multiple fashion photographers. 
I had fun working with Elliot, blaring music out and just getting on with it, after my look had been styled, we just got on with it without the need of a huge team.
This pants were designed by Chris Cardy (Performance Sportswear @ UCF), there was a top that went with as it was actually designed for a woman… but I think we managed to make it work with the styling. 
I would really like to work with him again on a shoot at some point… This guy has some really exciting work that I think you should check out:
