I was going to say "my first non portrait pic for ages" - but then I realised there's still someone in it and it's a portait of Nicky and his obsession!

Jewellery by Jess Smith - fabulous makeup by Amna at Beautyworks and Fran just makes it effortless.

I've been working in b+w for so long that it's nice to have to really work and think about what the colours and tones should be.

It was a really bright day so had a bit of trouble exposing correctly. But i think with a little (as in not too much) photoshop it's come out great.

Another from the Rousham shoot - finally got round to completing my backlog of images for editing. Really pleased with the results.

A new lighting setup for me - i like the effect - really highlights the makeup that Amna at Beauty Works did for us.


Was able to get to the studio the night before hols - really pleased with my new Fran shots.

I think she'd just sneezed or somthing and when I looked up she was just bringing the hands down. I thought it looked so good - like a mid prayer that we tried to emmulate it again. The look off camera (something that doesn't normally do it for me) also added to the world outside the frame.

I loved this in colour as well but thought the pools of light on the dress in b+w made the whole scene melt together so well.


Not entirely convinced I managed to meter properly for the flowers in the sun and for the models face...


Another Rousham shot. That pavillion was amazing.

One of my first attempts at a "cloudy" outdoor shot. Wanted it to be similar to the lightbox shots (with the softbox behind the model).

Another from the Rousham shoot with Emmy and Katy - have run out of time and not managed to get on and edit them, but over the next few days hope to get a few more done.

This was the shot I decided on for Sonny Malhotra's ProAm project. Thought the smile was so genuine and the look out of shot so intriguing that it had to be the one really.

One of the Rousham shots - some very hard lighting made for an interesting day.

4th May Rousham Shoot

Finally managed to get together with some likeminded people and head out to Kidlington and get some shots in the sun at the Rousham estate. Great gardens with lots of little nooks and crannies to get some decent shots.

Looking forward to editing them all - it was great to have a few other photographers along as well to bounce ideas off.
