The Joy of Jo

It is always so nice to work with people as passionate as I am. So Jo's enthusiasm really shone through. We had the excitement of working with some beautiful dresses which we selected from "Labels of Cranleigh" All very new and different. The dresses cave us scope to try something very fashion but also fun. Jo brought some of her own outfits and had a very successful day.

The Viaduct with Sarah

We talked for weeks about the location but finding it was a nightmare. Considering the viaduct is so vast you would think it is so easy to find a map online. Searching where Google maps sent us produced nothing. Back to the drawing board a Victorian map produced the name of the road and from there the location was found. Sarah was dead keen and her sister incredibly helpful. On arrival the viaduct was more impressive than I ever imagined and the lighting just right! We started with the ladette idea with builder's boots. Just a change of tops after that followed by some just in shorts. Sarah as usual was prepared to work at anything I suggested. Images using the repetition of the structure we ventured into the adjacent corn field with the glorious low evening sunlight. The images speak for themselves............... Fantastic evening.

Having worked with Beth under difficult circumstances on location without a hint of complaint I really thought a studio shoot with Beth was very overdue. First time in studio Beth relaxed into things very quickly.... It really helps when there is a common interest and music conversation just ebbed and flowed so easily all day. Directing her was easy and she was very willing to try new ideas.. As you can see we ended up with some great images. Lovely day with fun making things so easy....

Always full of excitement when someone is as enthusiastic as me about a shoot! Marlyn just wanted to get the best out of the day. It was obvious she had been really preparing and her confidence and enjoyment of being in front of camera was clear and really snowballed as her poses and shapes changed. As a fashion model I really hope Marlyn goes all the way. Conversation flowed' funky music played and almost every shot was a winner. Plenty of diversity as you can see! Just enjoy like me.
