After all the Auditions on the 10th 14th and 17th of March and auditioning over 30 children we have had the daunting task of shortlisting all our auditionees. Very difficult to say the last.
Some stood out more than others but they where all fantastic. I am so proud of them all.
Although after a full days deliberation Myself and Stacey Cutts have finally got it down to 10 finalists. (No names will be given in regards to these children.)
The above images where taken throughout the auditions process. These images have appropriate child model release forms.
Now to organise the filming days 😀
Met some wonderful children and there parents this week for our first batch of auditions for our little secret.
All the planning and preparation for this project is seeming to pay off. Although one self critique is that I wish I had organised them better into slots because yesterday was to say the least hectic.
A HUGE thank you to all that have auditioned and who will be on Friday. You where all amazing.
Also a Huge thank you to DK Models in Sheffield for spreading the word of our auditions.

I am the only photographer from this exhibition, I draw inspiration from my personal life and experiences, I believe that to draw inspiration from a personal affairs, I will not only gain notification from my viewers but I will gain the best kind of constructive criticism, this to in my opinion is how we grow as artists. Without feedback I sometimes cannot see my mistakes.
From Artist Statement…
To me beauty is not as obvious as some may think. Sometimes we need to peel back the cover to see the beauty underneath, photography is a great tool to uncover the hidden beauty of the world…
yes, everything may have been photographed before but it’s the way it’s photographed and who photographed it, that is still to be discovered…
Photography to me is: a snippet of time and a moment from the past, a new perspective and a border look into the world from the use of photography.
Stacey Cutts, 24 from Rotherham, Described by others as ambitions, Favorite saying ‘meah’
Media has always been a big influence in my life, I have grown up watching endless films and TV shows, from this I have always pictured myself working onset,
I am inspired by Martin Scorsese as I am a big fan of gangster films and film noir, i love how Scorsese brings his personal experiences to light through the use of moving media and film-making
I am the only Filmmaker from this exhibition, I aim to create a short and artistic films that can inspire and create awareness to the things I believe in. Developing from a music background I found media to be my calling. I was drawn towards the creation of the visual aspects of film making and filmography.
Artist Name: Kasey Windle-Heath.
Artistic Field: Photographer.
Photography is not only my chosen occupation, it is my passion and my calling. From a young age, I have always had an artist edge although growing up and developing my artistic calling wasn’t always easy, until I attend college for the first time to do Art and Design at Barnsley College. This is where I discovered photography as an art form and not just on a smart phone app. The darkroom fascinated me and I couldn’t think of a place I was happier. This is when I discovered I my photographic eye. The eye for details, I discovered I don’t just see the world as it was presented to me, I began to notice the formations, the shapes and crops that others couldn’t.
Photography drives me, it is my burning desire to photography everything I see and everything I see as beautiful in the world. To me beauty is not as obvious as some may think. Sometimes we need to peel back the cover to see the beauty underneath. This can be done through the ability of a photographing a piece, photography only shows what we want but what we want to show, a snippet of time and a moment from the past. I have heard in the past that some say photography is a dying occupation, because everything has been photographed before. The way I see it is: yes, everything may have been photographed before but it’s the way its photographed and who photographed it, that is still to be discovered. From this we can gain a new perspective and a border look into the world through the use of photography.
As a female photographer, being in a world that is dominated my males, is not a challenge to me it is my comfort. A woman’s perspective can always help, this not to be as popular in the world of professional photographers, I find comfort in the fact that I can be seen as unique.
‘Our little secret’ is an upcoming multi-media series, combining photography and moving media to bring awareness to child abuse within the UK. This series will be shown in an exhibition titled Visionary Exhibition in Sheffield, UK.
The partnership of this exhibition has been brought together by myself (photographer) and Stacey Cutts (Moving Media), we will crate and exhibit our work collectively in a multi- media exhibition in support of the NSPCC.
My photography work from past projects will be displayed at the exhibition venue also, they will be for sale throughout the time it is being displayed. All revenue collected for the sale of my images will be donated to the NSPCC charity
Updated will be to come very soon…
