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 […]
Regular blog readers may have notice the link to my recently created YouTube channel. So far it contains a few photo sildeshows and now my first stab at a ‘behind the scenes’ video. I set up the YouTube channel as it gives me another ‘hook’ into the internet. Online video marketing is on the rise […]

Here are some more images of actress and model Jessica Elizabeth Swanson for you to enjoy. Here we were looking to create a sun-kissed, retro pinup fashion vibe. Hair was by Doug Hobbs at Hobbs Hairdressing, Bristol, and we used the garden at the back of his salon for much of the shoot. A brightly-painted […]

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 […]
Recently, I’ve been traveling around the Bristol area putting on photoshoots in people’s homes. All I need is at least a 12×12″ space, preferably more, and it’s possible to take real, studio quality portraits.
One concept I’ve worked with over the past couple of years in is the ‘multi-client portrait shoot’. It’s a good way to see a lot of clients on one day for family portrait photography. It’s modelled in part of the good old retro ‘tupperware party’ concept – go to a space that may be a […]
