Paige contacted us on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/jbdi_photos/ to book a model portfolio shoot to add some images to her portfolio and for some photos for her new modelling agent. We met in Manchester’s Northern Quarter and chose a few suitable urban backdrops to capture some street fashion shots. She’s the first model we’ve worked with whose done the splits during a shoot! This was also the first shoot featuring a new addition to our kit, the Fuji XT 3
Callum who is now represented by Maverick models contacted me to fix up another shoot to add some more fashion and editorial images to his portfolio. Now much more experience, Callum was able to take full advantage of the costumes and props available at the studio to pose for some striking images. I was really impressed how he is much more at ease and able to produce more interesting and creative poses.
After our Peaky Blinders style shoot over a year ago, Matthew contacted me again to arrange a portfolio booster for his male model portfolio. We covered a number of creative scenarios from 60s James Dean shots with leather jacket, 60s retro selfies with Milford Sportsman camers, through a cabaret costume with topcoat and stick to a ‘JR’ cowboy theme!
Darren contacted me to arrange a shoot to add some more dramatic images to his portfolio. We set up a ‘steam punk’ style stage set in the studio and Darren wore some outfits from his extensive leatherwear wardrobe. We ended the shoot with some moody portrait shots.
Emma, an actress, former model and Daisy’s mother had worked with us previously to provide headshots for her own portfolio and contacted us to arrange a shoot to help Daisy expand her portfolio and give her more images for her Spotlight page.
Budding actor Ross got in touch to arrange a character and costume shoot. After some discussion we settled on the idea of using the props in the studio to improvise a steam punk stage set and compliment it with a combination of way-out costume accessories. Harnessing Ross’s acting skills, some coloured gels, backlighting and stage smoke we achieved a really atmospheric set of images.
Up-and-coming model, Callum, already signed with Maverick models in Manchester, wanted more images to diversify his port, so we worked on some fashion shots, formalwear, fitness and some more casual outdoor images.
Debut male model Jonathan contacted us to start his modelling portfolio. During a concentrated shoot we covered many different looks and Jonathan soon warmed up, producing some great poses.
Having worked with male model Brenden previously, he suggested we did a duo shoot with his partner Emily to include fitness, casual and fashion shots for both of them. We managed to cover an amazing wide range of styles in a short space of time resulting in a great variety of shots for all our portfolios.
