Will You KILL Me Now?

Quite a morbid blog post title. Fear not I don’t want anyone to kill me, I went to London to shoot the poster for a film :)

Will You KILL Me Now (WYKMN) is an Anti-Bullying film from Brymack Productions. I’ve been lucky enough to see the full length film but here’s the trailer for you :)

We decided on two versions of the poster, one with the full main cast and one with the two integral characters. We took inspiration from movie posters like Kidulthood and Face Off and mixed them in with a concrete London feel.

Here’s the finished products!

The cast were fab and super easy to shoot, they made my job so easy!!

Thanks George and Sophie for taking a chance on me :)

Rachel & David 14.06.2014

Here’s a round up of my favourite shots from the recent wedding of Rach and Dave, I’m sure you’ll agree they are such a photogenic couple, even though they’re both incredibly modest!

These two are such a fun couple, had a genuinely awesome time shooting this wedding. I really really wanted to do this wedding justice as Rach has always been so supportive of my photography since we met all those years ago on our way to Peru. I was super chuffed to get an email from Rach asking me to be her photographer, officially I might add as she’d always joked I’d photograph her wedding whenever that may be anyway.

‘She’s got that ‘White Wall’ thing going on’

I’ve always wanted to create images a la Terry Richardson and Rankin. I love how they seem to focus on the relationship between the ‘model’ and the camera. They do a lot of work with familiar faces and show them in a way you might not have seen them before. Fashion is all well and good but my favourite images are the ones that you either hate or love.

I love the questionably appropriate poses, I love how they aren’t serious, I LOVE that even if you hate the image there is no denying that the person in the shot looks amazing.

I’ve recently worked with two girls from my area, Becky and Sophie. Even though I’ve attempted these shots before it all came together on the shoot with Becky

And so naturally when Soph was on a brief visit up north again I HAD to have her do this with me. I’ve shot so much beauty, ‘fashion’ and arty stuff with Soph I was dying to show a new side to her that I love, but have never shown before.

I call them White Wall pictures because there really is no other way to describe it!
I use one shitty light that only works when it wants to, against my ‘lace white’ (that’s what Dulux called it) wall.
We are treated to the delights of my music library (my cousins seem to hate it but Becky and Soph embraced it), eat whatever I can find in my house, last night was Yorkshire tea and red grapes, and prance around playing dress up basically! Or dress down…

Not to forget Sam who loves to lie right where you need to stand ;)

I like to think all my shoots are fun and I like to keep it as laid back and pressure free as possible. It’s just a mess around, the images aren’t for any other reason apart from FUN!
We don’t think we are amazing or superior and we certainly do not love ourselves. In fact both Becky and Soph both give me evil eyes if I try to tell them they look hot! Considering they are both so beautiful neither of them are full of it. So incredibly down to earth and goofy (you wanna see the outtakes!). I love working with people who are just as stupid and crazy as me, and people who don’t love themselves but are just making the most of what their momma gave ’em!

I’m always told it’s a confidence boost doing a shoot with me. That makes my day, helping someone feel better about themselves feels great!!!

Got some new stuff to share soon that’s completely new from me, can’t wait to show you.

✌ peace out homies :)

My Halloween Tradition.

So for the past few years I have created images especially for Halloween! I love Halloween but being 21 and antisocial there aren’t many ways for me to celebrate it. I decided one year to try something I had seen done numerous times off the back of a photoshoot I was doing in a studio. It just so happened to be the week before Halloween and thus my tradition was born. I have been unable to do the pictures I had planned this year but I’ll get round to them and delight you all when I do ;) stay tuned! But for now I’ll reminisce…

The Gorgeous Jody Lamb was my first victim!

Next up I roped the beautiful Bethan and Mel into my madness! They didn’t quite have the comforts of a studio in fact Bethan has probably had the worst conditions of my photoshoots to date!

Here’s Mel being her usual gorgeous self…

And here is Mel after I was done with her…

And now a little bedraggled and after revenge?

Safe to say by the end of these things we all want to…
