Project Planning

Let me start with a bit of backstory. In 2018 I had two projects running. One was Project365 which as the name might tell you, was a photo-a-day project. The other was the T-shirt Project, where I took three t-shirts to every studio shoot I did and asked the model to style them with whatever…

Bath time at Wolfe

Last weekend was my first time in a studio this year, and what a way to kick off 2020. We had a beautiful model in the form of Fay Noir, a fantastically designed set by Caroline, and the technical team of Andrew and Alan to keep things running smoothly. The workshop was split into three…

Preparation

Unlike the previous couple of weeks, I’ve not been behind the camera this week so I’ve got no experiments to share with you. What I have for you instead is a little look into what goes into my preparation for a photo-shoot. Tomorrow I will be heading to Wolfe Cottage Studio for what will be…

Playing with 'Gels' – Part Two

Last week I told you about my little experiment with a flashgun and some sweet wrapper ‘gels’. Well this week I have continued with this experiment! This time I used two constant lights so I was able to use two colours at simultaneously to see what effects I could create. My model for this experiment…

Playing with 'Gels'

This week has mostly been getting back to normality after the Christmas break. I did manage to squeeze in a bit of time to have a bit of a play with the camera and ‘gels’. Now why have I put ‘gels’ in inverted commas you may ask. Well it’s because my ‘gels’ are in actual…

A quick look back. . .

So Christmas is behind us and the end of year approaches. It’s that time when we look back upon the last twelve months and reflect upon what the year has been like. Looking back I think 2019 has been a pretty good year. It’s had its challenges though nothing insurmountable. From the photography viewpoint it’s…

The Beauty of Print

So I hadn’t update my print portfolio in quite some time and decided it was time to get some of the photographs I’ve taken over the last couple of years actually printed. Hence I spent a couple of hours going through my files and picking out my favourite shots to get printed.

A delicious slice of Kaos

Keelie Von Kaos is one of those people who is absolutely mad. In the most delightful way, because it means she is so much fun to shoot with. Whilst I’ve only had the pleasure to shoot with Keelie a few of times, each time has been thoroughly enjoyable. 

My journey so far,

I’ve been asked this question on numerous occasions, and the answer I give never feels like it tells the whole story. Mostly because it doesn’t, but it doesn’t seem polite to give a thirty minute monologue when all most people want is a quick response.

A Little Bit of Lemon

So here’s a little bit of lemon, Bernadette Lemon that is.   So I was going to wait until I had finished editing all the photos from this shoot before sharing. Instead I’m going to pick one which I’ve edited and three others that I chose not to, and try to explain to you why. A…
