A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to work with an amazing makeup artist, Angela Pethig, along with a lovely model Jordan. The plan was to do some Black and White portraits and we managed a variety of different looks using found material and objects. Most images were processed as monochrome but some looked good in colour as well :-)
I love old movies and the look of film noir, a few months ago I worked with the lovely Rebecca Noir and makeup up artists Khaela Scott to have a play with the genre.
I have trying to put together a series images based around time. This was my first image and it turned out much less dark than some of the others have. It is easier to be happy when you are in control of time rather than time controlling you.
A simple natural light portrait of the lovely Georgia taken on a natural light workshop run by Scott Fowler. A fun day with lovely models and lots of different options to try. This was taken with window light a 50mm lens.
This is from a great shoot at Sumner Beach with the lovely Christine Cosgrove as Wonder Woman.
This is one from a series of images I am working on with some of the amazing cosplayers in and around Christchurch.
A simple portrait of the lovely Siobhan shot with a strobe in the forest.
Another image from a recent model shoot with the lovely Yan Zhou, a great location and this is really a draft version of an image I wanted to make.
Over the last few weeks I have been working on different types of images, as a learning process and to stretch myself a bit. I have worked with some wonderful people in a variety of locations and will share a few of the results over the next few weeks. This first image is of the lovely Yan Zhou at Godley Head just outside Christchurch. I actually used a flash in a large softbox just outside the window on this occasion as it was getting a little dark.
