12-days of pictures – day 12

Right at the end of the year I managed to get to work with Xanthe Rose again. I cannot believe it was so long since we’d last made photos together. That was a Speedlite workshop in March 2020 just before the world was tipped upside down. Working with Xanthe Rose is a true pleasure, she’s a friendly …

12-days of pictures – day 11

Day 11 and time to share the 11th hour shoot, that appeared out of nowhere an hour before it started. I had a call from a local studio owner asking if I might be able to help out. Aa client had booked the studio and unfortunately their photographer had been “covid pinged” in the morning and could not …

12-days of pictures – day 10

I’ve been to a few social evenings meetings at Penguin Stu6ios in Thame during 2021. One fine evening I was fortunate to meet and get one or two shots of some fine gentlemen. Photographers are often used to solitary working processes, yes when there’s other people to photograph it is not solitary, but it’s not often that photographers …

12-days of pictures – day 9

I’d seen pictures of Lisa from another photographer and when she happened to be booked for a shoot in one of my local studios I took the opportunity have a swift shoot with her myself. This particular studio space is going to be looking quite familiar by now, Studio 88 in High Wycombe, but I’d rarely shot here using …

12-days of pictures – day 8

We get inspiration from other people all the time. I saw Yassy in another photographers photos and decided I wanted to work with her. Fast forward a few months and our first shoot fell in to place. Also Yassy wanted to try portrait modelling as well as photos of her special talent. I met up with …

12-days of pictures – day 7

In the middle of the year I worked with Lastolite / Manfrotto to create an article and images that demonstrated using the edge of the light. I asked fellow photographer Les to step in front of my camera for a few shots to illustrate the piece, what followed was a short fun shoot where we made some great …

12-days of pictures – day 6

I can hardly be called a photographic year if I don’t work with Emma at least a couple of times, so despite restrictions, 2021 proved to be a photographic year as I had several shoots with Emma. Similar to the first shoot after lockdown of 2020, Emma was again one of the first people I worked …

12-days of pictures – day 5

A shoot with Mystique Fay had been in discussion for months, and once we were released from lockdown we found a time slot to make it work. Faith had a really interesting look, and I wanted to try out a few lesser used lighting techniques for this shoot, including a single large umbrella with a diffuser. It …
