So a few weeks back, I headed down to London town to meet up with a dear friend of mine for a days shooting at Murder Mile studios.
I want to start off by saying a massive thank you to Kash for putting this shoot together and setting up an awesome day. It looked like a lot of hard work for the poor guy with people pulling out – one model even pulled out an hour after the shoot had started! Luckily though, we had some great models booked and all of the others not only showed up, but gave their all to the day. We also had a great make-up artist, Alice Bizarre Make-Up, on hand to work her magic for us.
To start you off, here are the finished images from my shoot with Krystal Johns.
My first shoot with the awesome Ella De Vine. We struggled for ages to find a location to shoot outside, so I gave up and we went into the barber shop that Scotty Watson had managed to get hold of for the day. It was extremely cramped and I was convinced the images were coming out terribly, but I was pleasantly surprised when I got home and checked the images on the computer.
A massive thanks to Scotty for finding the location and to Ella for putting up with my fumbling and moaning about my kit throughout the shoot.
If you don’t ask, you don’t get! Well, I went in to see Alan at Alzone Tattoos and whilst I was there, I thought I would be very cheeky and ask if I could come back to take some pictures of Alan and the other tattoo artists at work. To my surprise, he was completely up for it, so I bit his hand off at the chance.
Typically, I woke up on the morning of the shoot with a stinking cold and thought I’d have to cancel. I just about managed to get my act together and made it down to the studio, though I was a few minutes late! I felt like a warmed up horse manure, but I am so glad I still went along. I’m chuffed to bits with the images I got and I’m also surprised how well the images came out with all the fluorescent lighting – though I decided to change the colours in post-processing, so it’ll be hard for you to tell
A massive thanks to Alan, Lee, Nick, Jim and all the customers at Alzone who agreed to let me take their pictures. Hopefully next time Jim will let me take some pictures of him too….?
