The morning after the Canada Day celebrations in Trafalgar Square, I had a client meeting in London’s Angel Building, so I stayed in town and checked out the Dance in Focus exhibition...
My second shoot with Tamrin, for all of the reasons that I stated last time, she’s just a great model to photograph! As the weather was so sunny, we headed out to some nearby lakes to...
Dance in Focus – Exhibit...1
Cambridge Ballerina Project ...3
I’d seen Helen dance in the CU Ballet Show last February, so I was keen to finally arrange a ballet photoshoot with her. And at a recent dance audition, I met Gabby, who was keen to join in the Cambridge Ballerina Project fun and share a shoot with Helen at the end of the academic term. Rather than postpone the shoot because of the unexpected cold weather and snow, the two...Read More
My now-regular visits to MAD Studios (now http://www.whitespacestudios.co.uk/) are simply because the studio owner keeps arranging model days with some of the best models working in the UK. Many of Monika’s portfolio pictures had found their way into my mood board of inspiring photos, so it was only natural that I’d take the opportunity to shoot with her. The RED...Read More
After the beautiful autumnal shoot with Hanna, I arranged a similar shoot with another ballet dancer, Sinead, whom I’ve known for several years through Cambridge’s dance scene. She danced with the Norwegian National Ballet for a year before coming to Cambridge, and has been involved in Cambridge Contemporary Dance throughout her degrees here. Luckily for us, the date we...Read More
It seems that Autumn suddenly caught everyone’s attention, as a spate of sunshine highlighted the stunning yellow leaves on the trees, as well as those that had started to fall. I’d been wanting to shoot with Hanna for a long while, as she assisted at Jenny & Natalie’s shoot, and has supplied me with dresses for several of my recent model photoshoots...Read More
Only one day after taking 1,200 photos with Iveta, I’d been asked for a shoot by a contemporary dancer who was going to be in the area. She had unluckily acquired lots of cuts and bruises in a location shoot a few days before, but fortunately, these didn’t really interfere with the shoot. Instead of postponing the shoot to let her wounds heal, she was happy to share the...Read More
I bumped into a good photographer friend (well, he’s an amazing photographer), James Appleton, and he mentioned that he knew a Cambridge University student who was interested in make-up, and in building a more professional portfolio of her work. Naturally, I was happy to meet her, and not long after, we arranged a shoot together. A contemporary dancer had booked me for a...Read More
Since I started shooting professional models back in February, I’ve arranged a lot of shoots through PureStorm (one of the better model-photographer networking sites, like ModelMayhem and Net-Model), and have built up a wish-list of the best models that I’d like to work with. Whenever a relatively-local studio has a model day with someone on my list, it’s hard to...Read More
I’ve shot with Ivory Flame twice before, and this time wanted to focus on strong portraits and fashion, as well as inaugurate a new project of mine, RED. The project will comprise photos of redheads, covering a range of styles – portraits, casual shots, character studies, studio shoots and location shoots. I may also create a parallel project of non-redhead models with...Read More
After a great first outdoor shoot with Emma, her agency, M&P Models, were after more photos for her portfolio. Here are my favourites from the shoot, some of which now grace her agency portfolio book. The full album can be viewed at...Read More
I wanted to take advantage of the recent fine weather while it lasted, and my old friend Jo was back in Cambridge for a day, so we arranged to shoot in her alma mater, Downing College. The full album can be viewed at...Read More
