I recently look to change one of my frequently-used softboxes, which was starting to show its age and looked rather tatty and misshapen. It was a Bowens softbox – I use Bowens for most of my studio lighting gear – so naturally hit their website looking for a like for like replacement. I was shocked […]
Recently I was lucky to work again with Bristol-based makeup artist Jo Peters, a makeup lecturer at City of Bristol college and something on an online celebrity with a hugely popular YouTube channel. Our model for the shoot was Jess who was keen to try out an idea I’d had making use of lots and […]
London-based Canadian burlesque star Marianne Cheescake has been dazzling international audiences with her fun-packed routines and it was my great pleasure to shoot with her when she was in Bristol.

At its simplest, a professional portrait shoot offers a client a collection of beautifully-rendered images to enjoy for years to come… but it’s possible to go even further. Locally, I’m well known on the burlesque and cabaret scene, which often attracts lovers of all things vintage from the golden age of Hollywood onwards. I’ve recently […]
I enjoyed a fun little shoot with fab Bristol-Based model Chantelle last week. Chantelle had been enjoying some shoots recently and had a Model Mayhem page with plenty of ‘alt’ like images. As there’d been a lot of fetish elements in recent fashion collections from the likes of Louis Vuitton I thought shooting the model […]
I recently had a small test shoot with Bristol-raised model Ozy Hussian. A Computing student and part-time model, Ozy was keen to show a bit more versatility in his portfolio, which currently contained some good sports/streetwear images. The obvious thing to do was involve a suit but dress it up in a way that wouldn’t […]
During the summer I enjoyed a small shoot with aspiring local burlesque artist, Missy Bijou, with styling and makeup work provided by Ally Katte. We made use of my ‘living room studio’ using Bowens Gemini studio lighting and a Lastolite Hilite background. Cross-processing and black and white conversions were done with Photoshop.
