It seems the blog is suffering from a lack of updates at the moment, mainly due to time pressure. Stacks of new work has been shot over the last month or so with much more in the coming months so I’ll pop things up when and where I can.

Here’re are a couple from yesterday, a hair shoot with Rick Roberts to produce his final collection for the National Hairdressing Awards. We shot earlier this year and it’s from those that he made it to the final, these are the ones that he will win or lose on. No pressure then . . . . . . .

Plus the moment in between the moments, one that won’t make the cut but I love it all the same.

Just in case you thought I may have run off, here we are back with just a subtle colour one.
This kind of image really speaks volumes about why it’s important for working fashion, beauty and commercial photographers to shoot tests. These are unpaid shoots where all those involved give up time in the hope of creating something new and different for portfolio use.
Take this image for example, the idea and concept I’d brought was a kind of black glitter beauty look. I’d spoken to Meg the MUA and we’d nailed down our inspiration images and ideas of how we planned to create it. From the start I had B&W images in my head yet the freedom of my own creative brief means that after a little post production I create this (alongside the pre-envisaged shots).

It’s only fair that someone facing the camera all day gets a triptych.

Thanks Chloe, I kinda had to pick this one with the hair.

The crazy thing is I swear I didn’t do anything in post to her eyes other than a general B&W conversion (a la Mark). Great light & Blue / green eyes given an Orthochromatic style B&W conversion makes for some captivating peepers.

Plus a little peek of the shots from the Leica which got itself a good workout alongside the Canon today –

Just the things I see and the stories they tells.

A picture can tell a great many stories, this kind of sums up many things to me, locally, nationally and globally.
