Zara Abigail

Gorgeous redhead Zara Abigail had a model shoot with me recently,with a mass of red curls which came in handy on some shots. Abigail was classic fashion model size, slim and tall ,and we rattled through a two and a half hour shoot on a  high fashion theme. Later that day she came second in a national beauty contest too, so a job well done.See more shots of Zara in the fashion photography gallery

Victorian theatre shoot

Obtained permission from Leeds Grand Theatre for a model shoot  .I liked the Victorian archeitecture and wanted a mdoel to compliment this. So recruited Model Mayhem member Necromantis(Law)and managed to negotiate narrow aisles and position lighting at the same time. Stage hands were busy setting up for the night's show and came in handy for a mains extension!
The idea was to keep ambient light of the hall with some fill in flash to light Lauren. Time was limited and not all shots worked as hoped, but got some images as seen below I think came out well. Check out more model shoots on the site thanks.
Up in the"Gods" for this next shot, I was juggling lights and tripod whilst trying not to fall off the balcony!

Kick Ass

An unusual model shoot this weekend, the girl who came down for a  model fashion shoot  was a part time Thai Boxer!! Or Kick boxer in general terms, although she is a sweet and friendly girl and hard to picture her kicking hell out of someone!
 I tried some different style of shots and processing on the final shots,see what you think.

We did a few shots of Lauren wearing her Kick boxing attire too, dangerous girl! :)

Summer shoot.

A model shoot today with Louise1989 from Model Mayhem site, planned as a hot weather model shoot but the sun had other ideas so we deviated onto a fashion shoot. The location was Heaton Park and Hall on outskirts of Manchester;I had my doubts whether the location(a 1800's rotunda Temple!) would work but Louise was brilliant. Her posing and bright personality gave the shoot a lift and she looked great.
My current favourite from the shoot above, I suggested a straw hat to Lousie when we began discussing the shoot, and credit to her, she went and bought one specially!! That's dedication, it came in useful!

I was worried about shadows under the brim due to the flat light, and I had forgotten my flash gun!
So Lousie kind of half tipped the hat as a compromise, got some sexy looks as you can see.More photography on the website.
