Variation is the key to success in my eyes! As much as I love photographing portraits it’s on rare occasions I get to really be creative and spontaneous in the studio. I absolutely love my job but there what something about this photo-shoot that I really enjoyed.
I think maybe it’s because I get to re-live my teenage years through my photography. My favourite place in Manchester was always Afflecks Palace and I remember spending my weekends there, spending my allowance on some outrageous clothes. So of course I was delighted when Elysia asked me to photograph their latest range.
The clothes were amazing, in particular the gothic pirate dress and my three models had as much fun with the shoot as I did. I highly recommend my models Jenny Carter, Kirsty Booth and John Seddon, find them on modelmayhem.com and Elysia loved the end result.
I rarely photograph black on black however it worked really well for this shoot. I’m pleased to present a few examples from the shoot above, the clothes are all available on retail in Elysia now. Please do not copy these images without permission. Thank you
