Indoor Photoshoot with Ellie

Indoor Photoshoot with Ellie

After two gorgeous photoshoots with Ellie, I couldn’t wait to photograph her again, and there were still some outfits we hadn’t got round to photographing, so we arranged another shoot. I’ve just upgraded to Lightroom 3, and although it still seems buggy (i.e. MUCH slower than Lightroom 2), it does have better vignetting features, and some new processing presets,...

Photoshoot with Ellie

Photoshoot with Ellie

I was so impressed with Ellie’s ballerina photoshoot last week, that I arranged an outdoor model photoshoot with her the following week. Many people ask her if she’s Lily Cole, and she also reminds me of several other celebrities (Debra Messing, Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Seyfried). Ellie suffered over 30 midge bites during the shoot (which I apologised for!), but so many of...

Cambridge Ballerina Project – Sandy

Cambridge Ballerina Project – Sandy

The fifth photoshoot of the Cambridge Ballerina Project. I’ve photographed Sandy in many contemporary dance shows over the last few years, and with her background in ballet as well as contemporary, she was always one of my top choices for a dance photoshoot, especially after one my photos of her graced the cover of a Cambridge magazine. I always prefer shooting at Magic Hour...

Model Portfolio Shoot for Emily

Model Portfolio Shoot for Emily

After the Derelict Fashion photoshoot, Emily has become interested in modelling, and was asked by an agency to put together a portfolio. As she trusted and knew me already, she asked if I could help her come up with more photos for her portfolio, in addition to the great fashion shots from the recent derelict shoot. Being short on time, clothing choices, and suitable locations,...

Cambridge Ballerina Project – Ellie & Emily

The fourth photoshoot of the Cambridge Ballerina Project, in Emmanuel College. Emily was one of the principal dancers in the recent CU Ballet Show “Sleeping Beauty”. Ellie is a friend of Jenny’s (whom I’d photographed in a previous Cambridge Ballerina Project photoshoot), and although I was apprehensive before the shoot, having no idea how photogenic or...

Murray Edwards Garden Party

Murray Edwards Garden Party

I’ve been commissioned by New Hall to take publicity photographs for their prospectus several times in the past, including last year’s garden party. They have since acquired a benefactor, and are in the process of renaming themselves to Murray Edwards College. This year’s Garden Party theme was based on Alice in Wonderland’s Mad Hatter’s Tea Party,...

Cambridge Ballerina Project – Chantelle

Cambridge Ballerina Project – Chantelle

The third photoshoot of the Cambridge Ballerina Project, in St. John’s College, and The Backs. Chantelle was one of the principal dancers in the recent CU Ballet Show “Sleeping Beauty”. She has trained professionally, and has done several ballet photoshoots in the past. I felt bad that Chantelle’s beautiful white pointe shoes got slightly damaged and dirty...

Emmanuel MCR Dinner

Emmanuel MCR Dinner

As is becoming more common, Cambridge societies and teams are turning away from the established and expensive photo studios in Cambridge (such as JET and Lafayette), and using freelance photographers to take their formal group photographs. The MCR of Emmanuel College hosted a black-tie dinner, preceded by MCR committee photographs, and a photograph of all graduate...
