    The original inspiration for this shoot was Subway, Luc Besson’s movie from the 1980s. It was a loose inspiration that let us play with it. I’d also acquired some RGBW LED strip lights since I knew that colour was going to play a major part in the shoot.

  • Black and White Fashion

    Black and White Fashion

    by

    Featuring a bold green and silver striped jumpsuit with such high contrast that we just had to shoot it in black and white.

  • Wedding Fine Art

    Wedding Fine Art

    by

    I’d found a vintage wedding dress and I hadn’t found a model to suit it. Then I heard that Lydia was at Zavod Studio and I thought she’d be ideal. The dress is possibly 1940s; it features pockets and a bolero. The odd thing about the pockets – or at least odd to me not…

  • Mobility

    Mobility

    Grace and me had discussed a shoot before, and then accelerated when she contacted me wanting images that featured her modern mobility aids. We’d agreed on a gothic or spooky theme for some of the images, using Lacrimosa as the musical influence. You can see a loose fence that I’d fabricated from older-style walking sticks.…

  • Medusa

    Medusa

    We’d been talking about this concept for a while and then decided to shoot very quickly. Amkmodel got in touch suggesting availability later the same week and that coincided with my own availability. One problem; we didn’t have everything ready. So I spent the evenings building and preparing the props, costume for the shoot. Fortunately,…
