I’ll simply add a quick run down of the components of us creating the appearance of beautiful golden late summer evening light when actually shooting in the middle of the day in Early March;

4 models
3 locations
1 make up artist
14 hour day
Freezing conditions (like actually below freezing)
Summer campaign
video crew
Car convoy around Liverpool
The worlds smallest florist shop
The worlds most awesome beaten up camper van
Over use of the phrase “think warm”
Being happy because somehow we picked our shoot day in between two days of blizzards.

So a good day all in all.

Two quick teasers from a little studio work yesterday with the Nemesis Model Management team (www.nemesisagency.co.uk/)

Hair & Make-up Artist – Helen Archer – www.nemesisagency.co.uk/models/creatives/helen-archer/4300/

Model – Olivia @ Nemesis

Plus a hint at what we came up with for new girl Natalie. I love it when you see the shot and then realise where the inspiration came from for it. Avedon has been a huge factor in a lot of my work (especially my B&W) so it’s nice to create an image which I feel pays total homage to the man and his work.

Walking upon the shoulders of giants

The image from my mind that sparked the idea for this shot. It’s amazing how our minds just hold these images until the right situation calls for them. I saw what Natalie was wearing and the big ol’ white space and figured why not give it a go.

A moment of clarity and calm amidst the hustle and flow of a fashion campaign shoot.

Leica M6TTL
CV 40mm f/1.4
Kodak TMax400 X-Tol 1:1 (Film lovers don’t hate me for the TMax, It was honestly all I had left in the fridge that morning)

Yes the eagle eyed amongst you may have noticed that the model number of my Leica has lost a couple of integers . . . . .
Bye bye M8.2 hello M6, hello LeicaLove. Only problem with it is it gets really really really cold when shooting outside in minus temps (I guess an all metal body will do that though, small price to pay for the pure pleasure that comes with creating photographs with it)

I thought as I’ve not really blogged much lately that I’d throw a few teasers up from the latest shoot.
It was a long day and I managed to cover plenty of miles from setting foot outside my door and setting foot back inside late in the evening but very much worth the effort and hard work from all those involved.

More to come once I finish up the final files but for now here’s some peeks at whats to come.
