Here are a few images of the lovely Charlotte Wallin I have done recently for some smart casual fashion. She really has a wonderful classical beauty and a joy to work with. I look forward to seeing her career blossom and I do hope to shoot her again before she UBER famous!!
Mei Zhang is a lovely up and coming Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist. She seems to have a knack to work very well with little guidance. Her skills were amazing when I gave her very little details about what I was looking for, and came up with the look all by herself that suited the style perfectly!

Here is a taste of some of the fashion shooting I have been doing.
Lea was a lovely young lady who needed some shots for a character she is creating. Now I must admit I forgot to ask the characters name, but I would say by the looks she has a very ‘devil may care’ attitude.
Lea was a wonderful young lady to photograph and has such a stunning look.
Jenny Nguyen was working furiously under fire with very little working in her favour for the shoot. Only small mirrors, fading light, and time pressure never seemed to faze her. A true professional and I look forward to collaboration again with her soon.

Here are some teaser shots from some work I have done recently. I will add a little more about each shoot in days to come with a few more chosen images from each shoot.
Well I do have to say a big sorry!! It has been a while since I have posted anything.
I have been MEGA busy shooting and exhibiting, and it has finally gotten a touch quite so I can collect my thoughts before the next big rush.
I have a few shoots over the next couple of weeks and I promise to keep you all updated on.
Well I hope all is going well, and your all having a bunch of fun! As for me, it’s just getting super busy with projects on the start.
I have two major ones at the moment about to commence and it will be taking up a lot of my time , so posting might be a little intermittent over the next few months.
One of the projects I can’t talk about to much at the moment, mainly because it has become a little bit of a back burner thing and I haven’t thought much about it as of late. The idea is very strong and has a wonderful meaning, but I am struggling with the way I think it is going to look, and how it might be best represented and shot. All this means I will need to test and test and test shoot there hell out of it until I come up with something.
More importantly ‘My Tribe‘ is moving ahead in leaps and bounds. If you haven’t read the proposal just click here, or find the link in my ‘Current Projects’ area. I have started a Facebook Page for everyone to join as well. This will be a continuous fed about the project and how it is progressing. It will also contain the dates and times for the studio sessions to come and have your bicycle rider portrait taken. So if your a part of ‘My Tribe‘ go like the page and keep an eye on your in box for more information!
When you can decide on an image, make two copies and see which one you like best I suppose.
I can’t decide on which one I like better. The Black and White has the Old World class of a classic image, yet the blue toned one seems to have more depth and a little more mystery about it.
I went to a lovely talk on Saturday at MGA.
Rod McNicol is currently exhibiting “Momento Mori” at MGA. It’s running till the 31st August so please pop in and take a look.
Rod McNicol’s portraiture is quite amazing. His very unique style makes for photographs that draw you very deeply into the gaze, yet the amount of information is kept to a very bare minimum. His sitters are generally sitting square to the camera in a head and shoulders frame, and stare blankly and very directly into the camera. There is a sensation in almost every image that you the viewer are peering into the eyes trying to find a connection, the sitter in the image is doing the same to you. You walk the exhibition space and start to feel a little paranoid about these people staring directly at you, not speaking and just observing. The images seem to have a ‘cruel tenderness’ about them. By that I mean there is a ‘cruel’ hardness and formalness in the image. The sitter not smiling and square to the camera having their image taken like they were to appear as a mug shot on television; then you look deeper into the image and the ‘tenderness’ of the sitter starts to come through and steals your breath just slightly as you connect to them.
Please visit the gallery and take a closer look for yourself. These images will stop you in your tracks.
