Colourama Drama

Colourama Drama

Last weekend I met up with Lydia, Vicky and model Twig for a studio shoot in Brighton. We originally had hoped to use an assortment of coloured backdrops for this set but as usual something goes awry. None of the studios that had them were affordable so we decided to go with lighting gels instead, and here was the second problem, they didn't arrive until the day after the shoot so it was make-do time with the two colours I was able to find in a local shop! :D

Here are a couple of behind the scenes photos!

As the aforementioned little problem thwarted our colourful dreams I had to add a subtle splash of pizzazz to the images in photoshop! Below is an edit in progress:

Keep an eye out in a future post for the final images! :)

Madeleine at Sunrise

Madeleine at Sunrise

Last weekend I made my way to to London to meet up with the beautiful Madeleine Uitz for our 2nd shoot! As we wanted to get to our locations the next day without hordes of tourists blocking our view we decided to start shooting at sunrise which as it turned out was a rather brisk experience, and I wasn't even the one wearing a dress. :P The sun eventually rose enough so that it was visible and we got some great images! 

We ended up shooting 3 looks in total around the Wesminster area in some iconic location that I've wanted to shoot at for quite a long time! Here are a couple back of camera preview of edits in progress! 

Towards the end of the shoot the figures started creeping into the background as you can see below, huzzah to photoshop I say. :D 

Madeleine was responsible for the fantastic make-up and the styling for this shoot so please be sure to follow her on Twitter/Instagram or check her out at her new agency M+P Models. Keep an eye out for the final images in a future post! :)

A couple of weeks back I made my way up to London to shoot a new set of images for Georgie of Beauxoxo for her website to promote her headband collection. I met up with Georgie and Stephanie at the Hyde Park cafe where we got set up with the make-up (and muffins) and we got to work shooting them!

Here are a couple of behind the scenes images courtesy of Georgie and a few of the finals too! Be sure to check out if you're looking for a headband of your own! :)
