For co-owners of Miss Bossy Boots, Veronica and Garry Moore, it was important that the MBB community remain connected, engaged and creative during this period of isolation. Equally important was the opportunity to share real and inspiring work with their clients and the wider community.
Miss Bossy Boots artists are a tight knit team, many having collaborated together for years on set. Even though it was not possible to work together in person, through collaborative phone and zoom meetings the faces of MBB was created. A series of self portraits of MBB artists which share an insight into their stay at home worlds with you.
Miss Bossy Boots artists continue to work remotely and safely on projects during this time. MBB is a dynamic photographic production agency representing creative photographers, stylists and hair and makeup artists. The agency works with prestigious companies on national and international advertising and branding campaigns.
