HP Behind the Scenes Blog

Do you love fashion and discovering the latest trends?! Look no further…We have teamed up with the tech gurus from HP to show you how our fashion edits come together from start to finish using the latest HP devices. Each member of our team use HP devices on shoots so why not check out their thoughts and see if the devices can make your life a little easier? To make the sneak peek even more exciting, HP are giving away the Stream x360 based on the recommendation from the stylist on the shoot – perfect for those busy days with the kids!  Simply tell us when you have been caught red handed taking a sneak peek!


Becky Shellman was the stylist on shoot, using the Stream x360. She always uses this device when on shoot because it is so portable and lightweight, but don’t use take our word for it ‘When on set I often refer to the moodbaords I have created for the shoot. That is why I love the X360 because I can constantly review the inspiration wherever I go! It is so portable it becomes my fashion accessory.’ So maybe you are not working on a photoshoot, but you are looking for a device to make your life a little easier right? Well now you have found it. This laptop is small enough to pop in your handbag and take wherever you need it, on the train, work, for the kids, it is a powerful yet a handy device! It has the style and subsistence for your busy life.

But it wasn’t just Becky loving her tech, Hannah, the gorgeous model on shoot is addicted to her Pavilion x360. Why? Well we asked her the same question.. ‘I love how this laptop is so flexible! When I am tired from a shoot, I can change the mode of the laptop so it sits upright and watch films on the sofa. It is great when I am travelling as I can Skype my boyfriend and family so they don’t forget who I am!  It also has a really long battery life, so I don’t have to worry about charging it all the time.’ Family is super important to Hannah, which is why we know this device is perfect for you. With a range of modes, it is great for the kids. They can be watching on film on the sofa one minute, they switch it to a tablet to play their favourite games. It is not only great for the kids, but the whole family. It has a great battery life, so that you can work from it all day and relax with it in the evening, the perfect companion.

Our photographer and stylist are also lovers of HP devices. Ben, the photographer cannot get enough of the HP Spectre and we have to agree, it is a stunner! The hair and make-up artist, Shell, loves her HP Envy 17 for the true screen quality. Don’t just take our word for it, meet the full team at the HP Store and see what they had to say.

Don’t forget, for your chance to win the HP Stream x360, simply tell us when you have been caught red handed trying to take sneaky peek of something…! Good luck!

    I used to work in a student union. we had a band come in who were quite famous at the time. they strictly said NO audience during warm up. a couple of us went in behind the bar. the shutters were down but there was a little gap that we could see through.

    the bar manager came in and saw us and read us the riot act.

    Got caught trying to sneak a peak at my Christmas presents from my mum and dad! They always hid them in a high-up kitchen cupboard 🙂

  14. Posted by Mary Dunlop on August 14, 2015

    I always remember taking peak at a small box hidden in my boyfriends drawer which he hid quickly when I came into the room. I waited until he was out of the room, when I took the box out of the drawer. My boyfriend came in to the room as I was just about to open the box. He whipped it from my hand, dropped down on one knee, opened the box, and pulled out a ring, and quoted those words – “Will you Marry Me?” —– We have now been married for over fifteen years!

    Making holes in Christmas presents!

  21. Posted by Hannah Whitling on August 14, 2015

    As a kid I got caught loads of times looking for the Christmas presents my parents had bought me and my brother! Other than that I haven’t, I ws taught to respect other people’s personal space so have done. Plus I believe that if someone wants me to see something then they’ll show me when they are good and ready.

    When we were going for our pregnancy scan at first my partner did not want to know and was hoping that I wasn’t going to find out too. I was so having a sneaky peak to try and find out what we were having. In the end we did find out and we had a boy 🙂 sometimes it’s good to be caught red handed!
