Cee at Southsea

Weather has put paid to so many location shoots this year so getting the opportunity to get out was great. Southsea is quite a sleepy part of Portsmouth and having turned up early I was rather disappointed the pier was closed off. Still there was potential very close-by. Wasteground boarding had been painted with graffiti and the ground itself lend itself to an urban backdrop. Cee had not had a location shoot before but settled into it very well. An array of bright clothes really helped.
After our rather urban theme the tide was out far enough to get down on the beach. Here there was a very different feel of windswept solitude and with muted sun and cloud it was perfect atmosphere for moody images. Cee was great and we worked really well. Ending up for a warm cup of tea at a little cafe at the pier entrance we reviewed the images feeling happy.

Gem of Jade

With so much toing and froing having booked Jade looking for a Make-up Artist; I was wondering whether the shoot would actually take place. Finally; two days before I found one and the project could go ahead. Model Jade arrived early which was great followed very shortly after by MUA Bryony. We discussed ideas and got underway with the mood very positive. Bryony was great with Make-up and hair and Jade just had this calm disposition in front of camera. We had four looks all of which really went well and created a different atmosphere each time. Results of the shoot speak for themselves. Really like it when there is good teamwork.
