I’m pretty sure this was the last time I shot at this particular studio. Not because of Scarlett, she’s bloody amazing. It was a combination of how far I had to travel and the owner being a bit of a git. Don’t underestimate how important it is to get on with the people who run…
I really like this shot. The pose, the framing, the light, the soft focus. I think it all comes together to create something wonderful.
Sugar and Spice and All Things Nice
This is from a shoot where I had booked the studio and the model for the day. I wanted to play around with the lights, trying different things and just try and find what worked for me and what didn’t. There’s lots of variety from this shoot but this is one of my favourites particularly…
Drifting away on a Dream
I love the very dreamy look to this image. I feel like there’s a wonderful fairy tale feeling to this shot and I couldn’t be more pleased that I was able to capture such a lovely moment.
The Swimming Side of Life
I’ve done a few since, and I’d quite like to go back and do some more, but this was my first pool shoot. Like anything that’s done for the first time there’s a learning curve and there are things I did differently in later shoots. I’m still well pleased with what I was able to…
Pretty in Pink
This was one of the few times, pre-pandemic, that I shot outside of a studio. I need a slightly different mindset when working with natural light as depending on the weather the light changes from shot to shot, meaning I have to keep a closer eye on my settings.
I’ve wanted to shoot something like this for a long while so when the opportunity came up I knew I couldn’t miss it. This was part of a group shoot and I’m pretty pleased with the results. Looking at it now I kinda wish I’d have taken a bit of time just to get the…
Foxley on the Run
Amber and I went to this location unaware that it would be flooded at the time we intended to shoot. Fortunately, it didn’t take long before the waters receded, and we were able to get some cracking images like this one.
I honestly think I might have hung up my camera were it not for finding East Coast Creatives. My local studio closed its doors for good during lockdown and it sometimes feels like I’ve had to start again from scratch. East Coast Creatives is such a wonderful group of people, and I can’t speak highly…
Just Leah Meraki looking simply fabulous in this rather casual getup. I’ve worked with a quite a few models since I first picked up a camera and I can genuinely say that I’ve enjoyed working with all of them.
