Courtney: Model Shoot

Last week I had a studio shoot with Courtney. The idea was to get some basic studio based shots (both fashion and lingerie) for her portfolio to add a bit more variety.
Having not shot lingerie before, I was a little nervous and not quite sure what to expect. I also found it quite hard to give direction, despite having researched and prepped as best as I could.


Courtney was really pleased with the images and her response was;

"There are a lot of great sots in there! They should add a little something different to my portfolio - thank you!"


Courtney had brought her boyfriend to the shoot but in reflection, I think that this was a mistake. I will ask models in the future not to bring a chaperone as I feel that it impacts upon their ability to model too much. I can quite understand why some models prefer to bring a chaperone, but when a shoot is in a public location or a University studio, I really don't think that it is necessary.
Although it doesn't always cause a problem, I felt that the shoot would have been more productive and Courtney would have been more confident and modeled much better to her ability without the distraction, as was evident when her chaperone left the room for a few minutes!

Ideas ideas, ideas...

Ok, I have been working hard on this now and finally I have some ideas - yay!

I still haven't decided exactly what I will be doing for my final uni project, but I'm hoping that a couple of shoots will give me the kick start that I need right now. I will post some more on this next week :)

Lacking Inspiration

Ok, so it has been a while since I have done many self initiated shoots, this is mainly because I feel as though I am suffering from a severe lack of inspiration.
I'm not quite sure why I am feeling like this but it is very frustrating and in turn, I am struggling to find the motivation to organize anything. Perhaps it has something to do with the time of year, its cold and despite taking a trip up to the Dales, there wasn't much greenery about yet.

I'm also not sure if I should be taking up a different direction with my photography as I'm now starting my final major project before I finish my degree - I just need to work out what I want from it...

WEDDING: Caroline & Andrew

I have been looking forward to uploading some of the photographs from Caroline & Andrew's wedding in January. It has taken longer than I would have liked, but with my dissertation deadline a little over a week after the wedding, I knew it would take some time to get them up for you all to see.

Yorkshire Dales Wedding 1

The wedding was held at the Devonshire Fell Hotel (owned by the Duchess of Devonshire) in the Yorkshire Dales. With all of the recent snow, it was very lucky that it had cleared for a few days as access to the venue would have been very difficult otherwise. There was still snow on some of the higher hillsides and despite the bitter temperature, it was a beautiful sunny day.

Yorkshire Dales Wedding 3

The venue was beautiful and the who;e day ran smoothly. I covered Caroline's preparations and right through until the start of the evening reception.

The full gallery is currently on client preview but I will post details soon.
