Rogan Berkeley, 34, who grew up in Little Cawthorpe and went to Monks’ Dyke school in Louth, founded Studio 8 Experience – which specialises in romantic boudoir photography and woman’s makeover portraiture – in Lincoln six years ago, following a stint in London.

Rogan told the Leader: “We have a fantastic in house make-up artist, handmade props and sets, over 90 designer dresses and evening gowns, and we dedicate ourselves to showing the world how fabulous our ladies are with every picture that we take.

“I have come into the finals for the competition every year I have entered, but this year I won and also came runner up!
