Back on a warm sunny July day I did my first shoot with Sophia down on the South Coast of the UK. Seeing Sophia’s skate inspired outfit I just thought that she needed a lollipop as a perfect accessory. Sure enough she knew of a traditional sweet shop that did indeed sell the perfect sweets. It was also decorated in a way that was the perfect compliment to Sophia, so with the shopkeepers permission we took a few shots using the natural light coming through the window.

We also worked with what I told a mate was the “cheapest natural light studio space” I’d shot in, just £2.60 for two hours 😉 Yes it was a car park but the light was on our side and the shot worked, its the one with Sophia sat inside a car with red/orange seats.
