Instagram







Ok, so, firstly - If your not following me on Instagram, you are clearly missing out. 

#JustSaying

Why are you missing out? Well, for one thing, I post pretty much every single day. None of this waiting around for weeks for the next photo shoot. No, no, you get a picture (or three!) every. Single. Day.

Not convinced yet? Well, how about this-

My Instagram pictures are exclusive. Therefore, you won't find them on any other website.

So, if you love clouds, sunsets, B&W shots, minimalism, architecture, abstract, raindrops, etc, etc, etc, you will love my Instagram.

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

Veil Test Shoot







So fairy recently, I had obtained a veil (actually a thin scarf) and wanted to take some test shots with it, to see how it would work on a model - my mini model was luckily around to help. I also paired it with the pipe cleaner crown I made for THIS shoot. These were only tests edited via my iPad, but I liked the results so much that I decided to post them up!

Summer Begins











So I realised recently that I hadn't done any shoots for myself since the Peaky Blinders one in February! It was about time to do something new. So, I called in my lovely model Bala Piti (used previously in THIS and THIS shoot) as we hadn't done a shoot since October 2013 - had it really been that long?! This was a very quickly put together, so I had no item of clothing, no setting, not even any general inspiration. 

However, because I had already done quite a few urban-styled shoots with the model before, I knew that I wanted to just take some very beautiful shots instead, and include the many flowers that had recently bloomed. 

Very, very luckily, through all the rain we'd been having (this is England after all), we managed to get one, absolutely stunningly warm, sunny day! We simply couldn't have asked for better weather.
