Behind The Scenes: Feathered



This week I was finally back doing personal work, photographing the lovely Sophia @ Sapphires Model Management. I've worked with her before but this time we got on board Allana Brinkmann doing make up and hair and Helen Hird doing styling. They were a brilliant team to work with and we had fun in my home studio set up, using only daylight coming through the window to capture the images.

Taxidermy Birds



Last week I organised a workshop for my second year photography students, using taxidermy birds! The birds are from my dad's collection, which he has had my whole life and I have been meaning to use them in my own photography. For this workshop we collaborated with the Hair & Beauty course, they made up models with a bird theme & then my students photographed them with the taxidermy birds. It went really well and the students got some amazing photographs.

At The Theatre

This week I had a workshop photo shoot with my 2nd year photography group at a local theatre. I arranged it for their current project in which they are taking inspiration from classical paintings for their own photography, a chance to use a brilliant location and get some great results. As the group is made up of different types of photographers, they all had their own ideas and photographed something to suit their style. Alongside teaching I managed to take these photographs myself, showing the location, my own slow shutter work and some behind the scenes.
