Photo Restoration

As well as taking photographs I have a photo restoration service. Prices vary according to the work needing to be done as it is very time consuming. I like to retain the original feel of the photographs.

Emma Especially

Emma is one of those people who is reserved but at the same time creates inspiration within me. We needed to get updates for her portfolio which reflected more edgy fashion. It was so noticeable how much more comfortable in front of camera Emma has become. We had plenty of fun and this really helps get the right images. Anyone looking for a fashion model would really be happy with Emma and what she brings to camera.

Musical Paint

When an idea was put to me by Opera singer Fleur I had no hesitation in being part of it! Working with a body painter (Boudcca Blue Bodyart Ltd) for the first time; was something I wanted to do. Many body painting projects contain nudity but this was different. Some four and a half hours later the shoot could begin and I was so pleased with the results. Fleur was her creative self as we Got our ideas into perspective and worked hard before the paint became spoilt! Great day! Enjoy the images.

More Katie

I don't think Katie needs much introduction in my Blog now. Working together is always full of fun, enthusiasm, creativity and honesty. Whatever we do it always has Katie's individuality stamped upon it. Rather than flood my Blog I felt it better to separate the studio from location part of the day. You have all seen the Bluebells I trust and the impact they made. Trying to produce images which give a different feel from previous shoots needs a little planning and searching for inspiration. Putting a different slant on images to give them a fresh new presentation is so much about team-work. What you see might seem straightforward but the shapes and lighting along with composition takes intuitive imagination from two people. Enjoy! Thank you.

Hiding from life escaping reality
Turns round spinning, blunting memory
Reaching but nothing to grasp
Clutching at straws which dissolve
Everyone breezes on oblivious
Hammering against a door unopening
Flashbacks all too openly vivid
Those enthusiastic dreams never emerge
The familiar, care nothing at all
There comes a time to concede
Expect that you live a different story
Knowing that break-out is a glimmer
Second chances were never an option
Primary chance destroyed completely
The past has all the answers
This holds the key to solitary status
Being kind bears a punishment
Spat out at the first minute misdemeanour
Like some ghostly devil in disguise
With all kindness and giving forgotten
Forgotten in the pursuit of selfishness
Or maybe the convincing lies of others
Torture of the Soul is complete unless…..

Essentially Sarah

If you are looking for oodles of enthusiasm then Sarah will not let you down. She is one of these people who really listens and wants everything looking it's best. She is open and receptive to new ideas and this means plenty of variety can be put into one shoot. Being able to talk easily together means that we work very well as a team and as a result get great images. Essentially Sarah is very keen to progress as a glamour model. Having said that she has a great editorial face and is fantastic with Fashion/art. Lovely shoot full of fun and improvisation.
