Sisters, Engagement and The Skeleton Project Week 35


Over the past month or so I have been planning to shoot for submission to a magazine. Last Saturday the day finally came! The weather was amazing, the team was fantastic, the models beautiful, the make-up elegant, the clothes exquisite and the location magical!

We all made our way the the quiet riverside town of Lewes, the location for the shoot was the Grange, normally used for quiet picnics and wedding photos. We turned one corner of it into out very own set, studio and fitting room.

Me with my favourite thing, unfortunately it turned out the cog that winds the film on was set wrong and I didn't actually get any photos of this shoot with it. However it will be used more in the future, a box of 120 film is on it's way! A previous blog post all about this camera can be seen here if you are interested. :P

This time no police were called to stop us shooting and no one fell off a wall, it all went smoothly and I can't wait to share the photos with you all! (wasn't meant to rhyme. :P ) I can't share any more from this shoot yet unfortunately, just keep your fingers crossed it gets accepted for submission! :D

Engagement Shoot and Brighton Media Centre

Also this week I did my first ever engagement shoot! It was nice to experience another side of photography and while it isn't exactly the sort of thing I would shoot usually it was still good fun and an enjoyable experience, the couple was also lovely, congratulations to them! :D Having a nice big studio to shoot in was a definite perk too! :P

The shoot took place at Brighton Media Centre where my friend Nadia works, she did the make-up/styling for the shoot too!

While the couple was having a look through the images I got to meet a great character who works there, he told me all sorts of great stories about photographers of the 60's in London where he used to work. So nice to talk to someone about photography in real life, I don't know maybe people who are actually interested in it haha.

The Skeleton Project

Week 35 and it's another wet one! Here is our bone based chum buggering about in water again!

Shoot for Chasseur Magazine and The Skeleton Project Week 34

Shoot for Chasseur Magazine

The other week I noticed the new Chasseur Magazine looking for content and I got in touch with them and after a little chat we decided to do a shoot for their upcoming issue. Straight away I contacted the beautiful Eleanor who I had shot with just a couple of week before (you can see that shoot here). Along with Eleanor I worked with the fantastic make-up artist Courtney Scarlett Boyd who I had also previously shot with (you can see that shoot here).

We drove to the quiet town of Eastbourne in beautiful weather to shoot in a little secluded garden area that happens to be behind a pub, not a bad bonus! Although when we walked in it did feel like walking into a saloon in a western... and the people dealing drugs in the toilet wasn't that great. Was nice in the beer garden though haha.

Here are some behind the scenes photos from the day!

Here are a couple of  back of camera previews, more to come from this shoot in a future blog post! :)

Nameless Rebellion Magazine

I was featured and interviewed in the 2nd issue of the wonderful Nameless Rebellion Magazine at the beginning of the month (for which I am so very grateful to the lovely editor Karina) and my copy popped through the letter box last Saturday! Although it isn't the first time I have been in a magazine it is the first time I have been able to get a copy and I must say it is very exciting! :D

You can view the entire magazine here, which I recommend you do, it's packed with great artists! And you can also purchase a print version there too.

Be sure to like Nameless rebellion Magazine on facebook and help support them! :) 

The Skeleton Project

It's week 34! We had a nice bit of sun recently and I spent the whole day in the garden with my skeleton! Here is one of the photos I managed to get!

Shoot with Abi and Angela and The Skeleton Project Week 33

Shoot With Abi and Angela

The other week make-up artist Angela Wilkinson (who I worked with on the Boho Gypsy shoot) got in touch for a spur of the moment fashion shoot on Tuesday with the beautiful model Abi Green

Angela styled the shoot along with Abi and they did a wonderful job, we got some great colourful fashion shots around Brighton seafront. It was also the first time I had shot on the Pier which is kind of mad seeing as I live in Brighton!

Here are a few behind the scenes photo and a couple of previews too!

The Skeleton Project

Week 33 is here, another step closer to that 52 week mark! Something a bit summery for the old skeleton this week!

Eleanor and The Skeleton Project Week 32

Test With Eleanor

The other week I had a wonderful test shoot with the beautiful Eleanor Froud! Here are some of the finished photos! Some are digital and some analogue. :)

There are some different ones on my website too and also keep and eye on my Flickr as I will eventually upload all the others there too!

The Skeleton Project

Week 32 has arrived! I had been meaning to bury this skeleton in the sand for a while but finding the time to go to a sandpit without the risk of small children trampling all over it while I set up the photo was a bit of a pain. :P
