This was my sixth photoshoot with the stunning Ivory Flame. Because we’ve worked on so many ideas already, we decided to go for something a bit more creative. Holly did her own hair and make-up, with fantastic results.
I was commissioned to take some casual portraits of someone for professional use; they wanted to be photographed in a café, looking casual, yet smart. The results surprised me in how well they’d sell as commercial stock images.
I finally upgraded to an iPhone, after years of wanting one, mostly for the apps, but now the iPhone 4S has a fantastic camera. I’ve been using Instagram for a while for the filter effects and social cross-posting, so when I heard about Casetagram, I instantly knew what case to get for my new phone.
I carefully chose my very favourite Cambridge Ballerina Project photos, and positioned them on the case to avoid any similar colours or shapes appearing together. The result is just beautiful.
Suzie is a second year Theology student, and performed in the last Cambridge Ballet Club show in February. I saw her again at a ballet class that Glory was teaching, and we arranged an autumnal shoot very promptly, while the weather was warm and all the leaves were golden. The clocks had just gone back, so these sunset photos were taken at around 4pm.
Pamukkale is a fascinating natural wonder in South-Western Turkey. The sides of a large hill are covered in Travertine Terraces – calcium carbonate deposits left by thermal spring waters. I visited on an overcast day, so the photos I got don’t do the site justice. You’ll find plenty of photos online of snow-white slopes against bright blue skies…
The drizzle didn’t dampen my enjoyment of the thermal waters in Cleopatra’s Pool, replete with sunken ruins from Hierapolis.
