The City Girl (Part Two)













Bigger post than usual today!

There were so many shots of my lovely model Tilly, that I Just couldn't decide!

As we went for a clothing change, (and as we were both tired from walking about the centre) I decided to base the second style inside Colston Hall. The updated venue is just brilliant for lighting! Plus, I'd used it briefly before in another shoot, and so knew all the best places for shots (or so I thought).

I had wanted to shoot the gorgeous Tilly against my dark-gray backdrop, but as this was at home, it wasn't possible. However, I suddenly found that the hall had a great dark wall to use instead! On top of that, there was a streak of very bright sunshine coming through from the window, which made it amazing for shots 1, 2, 3 & 4.
If that wasn't enough, we found something else. I'd never known it, but at the very top of the building was an outdoor seating area - fantastic! The light was very bright and sunny, and so this is how we got shots 7, 8 & 9.

The City Girl (Part One)









Here is the first part to 'The City Girl' with the beautiful Tilly from Gingersnap Models.

We hadn't done a shoot since May last year, when I had a different camera and a different tecnique (click HERE for the last shoot). Now though, having changed a considerable amount, I thought it was about time we do another shoot!

There's something that I love about shooting with no agenda. Because of this, we simply walked about, finding and exploring places I'd never known existed - it made for some great shots!

Keep an eye out for the second part, coming soon!

Dress is from BS8.

Writer's Block (Part 1)









I wanted to do a shoot based on a 1940/50s struggling writer. Drawing inspiration from trailers for The Broken Tower and researching 1940s writers, I quickly created an idea. Luckily, as I am a tad bit of a vintage hoarder, for the shoot I already had two typewriters, various and many antique books, hip flasks, dip pens and ink, etc. Obviously, there was no one better for the job than the lovely model from my Peaky Blinders Inspired Shoot (<< Click the link, you will not be disappointed!). He turned up on my doorstep looking more like Edward Norton from The Painted Veil than anything else, holding a bag of crisp, white shirts, trousers and roll necks. 

This is the first half of a two-part shoot - Keep an eye out for the second part!

Urban Girl










I am currently free for the next couple of months, so I've finally managed to line up some more personal shoots, as well as commission work! I had wanted to do a portrait shoot of sorts for a while, and so decided on the lovely Eva for my subject. We had set a date for the day, but unfortunately, due to me catching a charming flu-ey cold (in the summer, what else?) we had to reschedule. Ive never had to reschedule for ailments before, so that was something. It being England and summer, there had been back-to-back rain, so i didn't have much hope for the weather. Funnily enough though, the day ended up being fantastically sunny and incredibly hot. As you do! Apart from being slurred to by a very drunk guy whilst we shot, almost being run over and being told to leave a premises - it was a very successful day!

As it turns out, as well as being a lovely model, Eva is also an incredible singer! Do check out her Soundcloud: Click Here
