Stuff + The Skeleton Project - Weeks 09 and 10

Hi there everyone!

I missed posting a skeleton project photo last week so this post includes two photos! The first is a black and white from the animation I am working on (but not actually working on at the moment, other things to do lol) and the other is another shot from my 'Hanging' series.

Week 09:

Week 10:

In other semi-related news I am having a tour of the photography department of the University I am applying to next week so that should be interesting! The MA course I applied for isn't available, I am going for a BA instead so fingers crossed! :D

Also if you missed it here is a little video I put together from my shoot with the wonderful Katie Eleanor. Photos from that shoot soon too! You can see my other videos here:

I should have something new to post soonish, got some more shoots coming up so keep your eye on my Facebook page as I update it most regularly. Hope you enjoyed this and last weeks photos, see you next time! :)

Flowers in her hair + Week 8 of The Skeleton Project!

On Thursday I met up with model Alexandra Leigh Eyears, hairstylist Emma Hellier and make-up artist Rebecca Rojas for a little 'flower child' inspired shoot at Highgate wood in London. It was a bit on the cold side as you would expect for the time of year but thankfully it didn't rain!

Here is a preview:

And here are some behind the scenes photos:

And now for week 8 of the Skeleton Project! This weeks photo has a skull in a jar, naturally! :D

Meeting the wonderful mind of Katie Eleanor!

I have been following the work of Katie Eleanor for a long time now, her imagination and creativity along with her immense talent as well as her obvious pleasant nature had her straight on the list in my head of people I would love to work with some time.

Back around the middle of January I got in touch with Katie in the hopes of setting up a little shoot in the coming months. We threw a few ideas around and settled on a bit of a theme and a location in central London to meet up. Here is a quick sketch I did before the shoot of the sort of thing I was aiming to get, I think we pretty much got it too! :)

As usual with a lot shoots I arrange rain seemed to be involved and it decided to tag along with us almost all the time we were shooting. But we didn't let water spoil things so we pitched the tent made of sheets, hoisted the bunting, lit the candles (which blew out immediately) and pulled the creepy doll out of the bag!

I am still working on the photos and waiting for the film to be developed but here is a bit of a preview of what we managed to get before having to give in to the rain, cold and dark. :P

After we were done shooting we went to dry out and warm up in a nearby cafe and while enjoying a beer I got to talk to Katie about all things photography! What could be better? :D It was pleasure to work with her, and I hope we can collaborate in some way again in the future!

Be sure to follow, like and look at all the places Katie calls home on the internet: Website / Facebook / Twitter / Blog

Assisting on Lucia's shoot

Yesterday I had the pleasure of assisting photographer Lucia O'Connor-McCarthy on her photoshoot in Brighton for Ballad Of Magazine. The shoots theme was candy pop for their next issue so there was lots of colour and crazy clothes.

We met up around 9am and didn't finish until 6pm so it was a long day but it was great fun! I met a whole bunch of lovely people and from what I have seen on the back of the camera the photos are going to be fantastic! Be sure to keep an eye on Ballad Of's website for the issue.

Here are some behind the scenes photos from the day:

And on the walk back from the pier to the hotel there was a jolly good sunset to end the day!

The Skeleton Project - Week 07

Ok so for week 7 I thought I would have a go at a bit of photo-manipulation, it isn't really my thing but it's good to try new things...isn't it? :P Well you can decide on on the level of awful when scrolling down haha.

Week 07:

Thanks for looking! See you next week! :)

So August last year I had a photoshoot with the wonderful Wioleta Michas, you can see the the blog entry for that shoot here

We managed to get lots of great photos, but I also filmed a little bit of the shoot too and only now have I gotten round to putting the clips together and trying to get them into something worth watching. Unfortunately the filming was a bit of an afterthought so there wasn't much footage to work with but I think what I got was pretty good!

Here is the video:

Test with Stephanie

Here is a quick update with a few of the finished photos from my test shoot with Stephanie the other week. :)


The past few days have been really clear so I though I would try to get a few photos of the nights sky, they aren't the best photos but not too bad either. :P I you plan on trying your hand at these I recommend waiting for warmer weather, it was bloody freezing taking these lol.
