Hard Times



Recent shots from tests with Gareth and Jourdana. Both brilliant models and very easy to work with. My approach to work of late has taken on a simpler, stripped back quality. I am not sure if I am subconsiously being influenced by these hard times we are facing. Working from home a lot means I get my 5-a-day dose of national news. 'Austerity' seems to be the buzz word of politicians and the press and I think it might be getting into my psyche.
Still, whatever the influence I am liking the results and there are more images to come from these recent tests. They will be up soon!

New Faces


Two shots from a test in October with selected New Face girls at Boss Models - Kate, Lucy, Ella, Cailin and Rebecca. The top image was the look we were aiming for but the image below I really like too in the way it shows more character, it was a fun and very girly afternoon and I think this image captures my memory of it. This was a very agency driven test for their promotions but I would like to do another test with a few models together in a more classic style, maybe black and white location shots. Who knows, maybe in the New Year!
Thanks to Liz Rochford for Hair & Make Up on this shoot and also to Becky Bowyer for Styling.

Kiddywinks

Well, I am finally winding down for Christmas and since I haven't been posting a lot over the last couple of months I amy as well start be explaining why!
The images above are from a job at the end of October for Real Kids. Each year they renew the kid models images and take on some new faces aswell. It was my job to photograph them all and with 5 solids days of shooting and 15 - 20 images for 200+ kids it was a huuuge job!
All done dusted and delivered now though and all the kids look lovely. Thanks to Alex Bell for Make Up, Styling and general moral support on these shoots!

The Outsider

Working non stop at the moment to the extent that I feel a bit like life is passing me by. I need a night out!

We'll Soon Be Dust


Finally managed to take some time out from work to shoot a new fashion story. For choosing locations I like to get out into the country but to make things a bit different this time I wanted to introduce some industrial elements, very much the northern country landscape that I have grown up with. Still enjoying black and white and the atmosphere it lends to simple images and mostly glad we managed to get a full story out of a day of really grim weather!
Thank you to models Tanya and Rachelle from Boss, to Hannah Flood for brilliant layered styling and to Kaye Fleming for perfect make up.xxx

Denim Denim


For tests I shoot a lot of simple 'jeans & t-shirt' looks but with Jess we tried to make it look a bit cooler which worked perfectly for her as she is so naturally pretty. Rather than being the boring basics they were actually some of my favourite images from the shoot.

Melancholy

Still shooting work for my monochrome portfolio. Want to get a good selection of really simple stripped down black and white shots so there will be lots more to come.

Pretty Ballerina

Everyone who works with me knows I shoot a hell of a lot of these soft pretty lingerie/body shots but they don't normally make it to my website or blog as they are quite commercial. However Lauren looks so pretty and delicate in these shots that they look really striking. Pretty ballerina is just a name I have given Lauren by the way... she is actually a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and could give you a serious injury. Thanks to Rebecca Anderton for Hair & Make Up here.

Back to School


Well, after my sunny week in Portugal, everything back home has that back to school feeling. It's the perfect time to post an Autumn inspired shoot styled by Cheryl Lewis who has recently joined Boss Creatives. Thank you to Rachel 'most amazing hair ever' Marston for modelling, and Bridget Taylor for amazingly perfect Hair & Make Up.
