Nature's Way

This series of photographs is a floral beauty editorial I shot recently, inspired by 'Flowers in the Attic' which is part of my research for my ballet inspired project I am working on at the moment.

It was a lovely, relaxed shoot working with 2 lovely ladies: Sarah J, model & Ashley Kay, mua / hair. I experimented with a bit stronger lighting & used a backdrop I bought recently, which I am in love with!
We also had some floral headpieces from the amazing - www.louloulovesyou.com - which worked perfectly.
The other headpieces were made by me..

Male Dancer Test Shoot

Similar to the shoot I done with Ellie, Here are some photos I done with a male dancer..

These are simple test shots to experiment with shapes, movement etc, as part of my development work for my current project.

Kieran was great to work with and was a good change for me working with a guy!
