Concept

Concept is a series of model shots inside hidden locations or abandoned buildings. Working with designers to pull together concepts, some people love people in lost places, others hate it, somewhat like Marmite…. however, you decide.

Design and dress choice by Jade, room section and props by myself. Shot in an abandoned hotel in France last year, a real rush against time as the sun dropped in the sky.

The Midnight Glow

The Midnight Glow

Racing across to Europe last weekend we ended up inside this abandoned French Chateau late on Friday night. I lit the place up once in with LED panel lights and me and Jade proceeded to have dinner at the kitchen table a surreal experience.

The chateau was stunning, one of the best that I have ever seen, and I had a little vision that I wanted to create using speedlights with the dress Jade just so happened to have in the car. However, just as I set up my batteries died in my LED panels and then I discovered I had forgotten my AA batteries for my speedlights anyhow, so we left and returned the next morning, batteries in hand and recreated my night scene.

I've actually produced a "how to" video of this one which you can now see here, containing my new intro: https://youtu.be/Dc-k0zp9Ikg

Ever the thrill-seekers, Jade popped on a red dress to make herself “pop” from my scene whilst inside this huge former power plant in Hungary.

Magical Iceland || Sprinkles of Orange

Magical Iceland || Sprinkles of Orange

It is almost 4am and we are in Southern Iceland, and the only people awake around Skógafoss are two young girls looking on as we started setting up in front of the cold yet extremely awesome falls. 

The sun had not set at all that night yet again, but we had been stopped in our tracks by the rain earlier in the evening. So we were forced to stay local to our tent once more and decided to under take some model images in front of the now famous falls.
