Gains…………

I’ve been working out.

Yup……..I joined the gym and have been trying to hammer my ass back into shape for the last 10 weeks or so. Feeling pretty good actually and slowly pulling myself back together after the whole broken knee/snapped tendon/quadriceps incident thingy.

Anyways the point of this is not to waffle on about me. What I’m driving at is that I want to shoot some athletes…….team sports people……fitness stuff……muscle.

Inspired a little by the work of the legendary Joel Grimes amongst others but with my own flavour added to it.

I have a couple of people lined up but I do have a few slots available so please do get in touch if you’re local to me and have what it takes to make a great image.

Here’s a shot of Miss Lasma from Latvia which we made here at my house with a three edge light set up (it’s great for emphasising physique and muscle tone).

Hope you like.

Hallowe’en……….

It’s my daughter’s absolute favourite!

She dressed as Pennywise this year and did her own makeup.

We had just a couple of minutes to grab a quick shot before heading out for an evening of sugar fuelled trick or treat mayhem! Luckily I had two strip boxes set up (with grids) and ready to go. I had to shoot high speed sync to go fast with the shutter speed and darken the background as all we had to shoot against was the white wall. One quick blast on the smoke machine and a few takes later we’d got our shot.

One for the family album 🙂

Quick teaser shot from this conceptual shoot.

I’ve been busy experimenting with gels and smoke lately not too easy when you are colourblind but really enjoying seeing the results all the same.

More about how we got this effect later but for now we hope you like the image.

 

 

Actress Portfolio

We shot a series of themed images and headshots to update Madison’s Starnow actress profile recently.

Needless to say it didn’t end well for the bunny!

Maddy-2309-Edit-2

We completed a series of portraits/headshots with some Peaky Blinders style thrown into the mix.

Military.

Military with Meg.

Military fashion is one of my absolute favourite styles to shoot. As it happens this was just a small part of an extensive shoot with model Lady Megara but I loved the way these images turned out. I couldn’t resist sharing them.

Megan-2002-Edit-2

The smoke effect is added in Photoshop but I’ve recently acquired a smoke machine which I’m looking forward to testing out in forthcoming shoots. Watch this space!

Megan-1997-Edit-2

I’m planning on doing some ww2 styled military work in the near future. Very much looking forward to it. So if anyone knows any re-enactors who might be interested in working with me then I’d love to hear from them. The Second World War is something I have been interested in since I was very young and I still love to hear the stories my Grandmother tells me of her wartime experiences (might make for an interesting future blog post actually)

Last one from this mini-series………

Apologies for my lack of blogging lately.

No excuses.

I have been shooting quite a lot however and scored some fantastic publications recently. This set in particular featuring the incredibly versatile and well known model Arabella has given me an appetite to shoot more with coloured gels and to push my creative boundaries.

Watch this space.
