Weekly Photo Challenge – Experimental

This week’s WPC theme is Experimental, as most of you are aware a lot of my photography, especially my Conceptual Portraits are quite experimental, but generally, through careful planning and sketches, mood boards and the like they come out as I have imagined them. A few months ago I did a 20-day challenge with Brooke…

In the Studio – Introducing Ruby Ravonfaere

I adore a happy coincidence, don’t you? I recently had a Steam Punk shoot all arranged with a newish model and due to circumstances beyond her control, she had to cancel, it’s OK Life happens. But, I was still very keen to do the shoot anyway, either that or Netflix binge! So I put a…

Thursday’s Textures

I know normally it is Tuesday’s Textures, but Tuesday kind of got away from me this week. This is an image I took of Amber Formosa Mort at a recent Studio Shoot, it was shot on a Green screen, something I do not normally bother with, but it was all set up, so why not?…

In the Studio…The Secret Garden

It is actually a rather long convoluted story as to how I ended up spending a very long day, with two women I have never met, working on what turned out to be quite an extraordinary and unique shoot; but I’ll try to condense it. I was asked as a favor (friend of a friend…

Share Your World – 18th July, 2017

What is your favorite cheese?Β Being lactose intolerant, cheese is NOT my friend! However, there have been major improvements in the taste of Lactose-free cheeses. They actually taste better than the packaging these days. I can tolerate a little hard cheese, parmesan for instance. And if I am feeling particularly naughty I love some Edam or…
