I often get asked in workshops where I get ideas for shoots from. Can you spot the answer to this one?

One Light and Kat

Kat came down to the studio yesterday for a little practice session to get some new ideas together for my sessions at The Societies Convention in January. We'll be joined by Kerry and will work on a load of sessions ranging from boudoir to outdoor fashion at night time to lighting demo's to talks on how models perceive us photographers.

Back from Nudes Workshop

And full of cold! Uurgh. Was suppose to be having flu jab today but had to postpone. Given me a little time to reflect on some of the times we shared in Hertfordshire. Here's delegate Andy Trickett muscling in on the action alongside Kerry our model. It's my little homage to 'Prison Break'! More to come from this workshop once I move off my bed!

Big blog post

On the Newcastle weekender we shot a series with Kerry in window light in a very cold, very dingy setting. Love the results. This set illustrates why you should shoot a series of images of your clients in order to maximise sales. Enjoy 

Street Fashion with Kerry

The sun shone on us in Newcastle this weekend. We took an Elinchrom Quadra Ranger and deep Octa onto the streets and shot Kerry in some gorgeous light. Nice to mix the sunshine with flash for a rich quality of light to sculpt her form. We're down in Hertfordshire next week. If you'd like to join us visit and book your place today.
