Royal Imagination: The Book

From The Creative World of Daniel Moncur-SIme and Danny Marie-Elias

This book is a personal journey that aims to deliver challenging, bold and innovative work. Inspired by fairy tales, fables and childhood memories this book merges the creative minds of the Royal Imagination pair for the first time.

Daniel Moncoeur-Sime is an award winning photographer/designer & Danny Marie Elias is an international hair and makeup artist. Both successful in their field, they have come together to create this book and have endeavoured to share their hearts and their passion through the pages.

The journey has been both challenging and rewarding, and having ridden the rollercoaster they would like to express their utmost gratitude to those who have helped and offered their support.

And not forgetting family, friends and supporters along the way.  The Royal Imagination book is dedicated to all those with a creative spark.

When Dan explained the concept behind the project and wanted to know if I would be interested in being part of it all, I immediately said yes.

Having worked with Dan and Danny on a previous shoot, I knew the few days we would be working together would not only be extremely productive and produce fantastic creative photography, it would be a lot of fun too.

I am a London based actress and very rarely do modelling, however I have to say working with Royal Imagination has made me wonder why I don’t do it more often.

They are so easy to work with and you really feel you are part of a creative space as soon as you step on to the set, and I really hope that there will always be opportunities in the future to work with this wonderful team again.



Hello 🙂 my name is Katy, originally from London and I have been working as a Model, Singer and Dancer in London since graduating from Bodywork @ Cambridge Performing Arts 3 years ago.

I am a very passionate individual and enjoy working to a high standard to set about achieving my dreams. I have worked with Danny and Daniel on various different projects and the level of creativity always leaves me feeling inspired and wanting to do more so it is always a rewarding experience. I am already excited about the next book!



I’d like to thanks the team for having me, I had alot of fun doing this project!

I started modeling when i was 11, I had been scouted at the clothes show by select model management. Now I am with Gingersnap.
I have been lucky with the opportunities i have had in modelling including many Lorial events and catwalks.

Danny and Daniel really made me feel at home on both days of the shoot. I love the way they both worked,  as soon as they got there image they went to the next look, which for a model it is nice to have a variety of themes.

The whole team were very talented at what they did and i am thankfull to be able to work with them all. I hope you enjoy the book, and I hope it show cases everyones talent..xx



Although I’ve been in lots of photoshoots, the Royal Imagination book project had drive and it’s creativity stood out.

The concepts and environment was enchanting, with all the different and surreal moments it was like stepping into another exciting world.

The professionalism astonded me. Daniel and the team made me and Jodie totally relaxed and comfortable. He wasn’t intimidating or overbearing and had an energy all day long when working.

I am full of admiration for both Daniel and Danny Marie the makeup artist. Both strived for perfection and got it without stepping on toes.

The project was really unique, off the wall, I never thought that some projects can just be a wonderful time!
