Locating Elesha

It is always exciting to work with Elesha and when we looked at working on location it was something new to embark upon. The location was Victoria Country Park in Hampshire and the weather very hot. The park was very busy and trying to avoid the crowds was tricky and to an extent limiting. We started out at the former Netley Hospital Chapel using the deep orange brickwork to contrast. Elesha just adapted to each change within this and we caught up on all our news. Elesha always looks great no matter the situation and with the wind we just used it to our advantage with blowing hair. We moved on to a more ethereal look with long white dress and headband which gave an ethereal look. Amongst the trees and at the beach it worked equally well and even with the bright sunshine we created some interesting moods. Finally we got funky in contrast and used the perspective of the park to get some fashion with attitude and some great windblown portraits. Elesha goes from strength to strength and I look forward to shooting again and also see her really progress as a supermodel. ;-)

Becky Arrives

Becky is just getting started with modelling and turned up full of enthusiasm. We got into full flow quickly and conversation flowed which I find very important when working with someone. There was a calm confidence and also a desire to learn as well as being creative. It always pays with people I work with for the first time that I establish common ground. At the end of the shoot with both of us rather tired I felt that we had some images which we were both happy with. For someone just starting out Becky is hungry to learn and determined to succeed.
