October’s talents extend to her photography skills which have also resulted in her work being accredited and published internationally.  October attributes her natural talent behind the camera to many years working as a model on the other side of the lens along with literally thousands of hours spent working with her husband Si Brailsford, Commercial Photographer and Trainer at The Pinup Academy.
