In the studio – Vintage Boudoir

The best laid plans of mice and (wo)men…right? I had this idea for a vintage boudoir shoot ages ago. I fell in love with the backdrop and ordered it months ago, with the promise of setting up a date when it finally arrived. Well then the whole world lockdown happened and again this shoot was…

Three Muses

Recently I invited three ladies (two I had never worked with before) into the studio for two Conceptual images. Initially, I had this whole concept shot in mind, I am still working with it in Photoshop, but on a spur of the moment, I decided to lay all three women on the floor and drape…

Alice in Wonderland

Last weekend, I had a wonderful afternoon in the studio with a great bunch of people. My Photography Group (VPC) has done several of these large group shoots now and this one was so good, I think it might be my favourite so far, but then I am always partial to a little Alice in…

I was recently joined in the studio with not one but three muses. Jess, of course, but also another newcomer to the studio Anjel and Gabby. Jess met Anjel at a Vintage Car/Hot Rod show she was working at and thought we could make something very cool together, I had an idea for something and…

In the Studio – Medusa

This post has been a little while coming…a bit like the piece itself. We made so many of the props and costume for this shoot. I purchased the vivid green hair and short sword, but pretty much everything else we made. I wanted to capture a mythical and mystical Medusa but had no clear vision…
