More Kianis! Vintage 30s shoot

Kianis returned for another shoot but this time to re-create an authentic 30s P G Woodhouse character complete with tails coat top hat monocle and many other props that we have available at our studio. We spent a lot of time perfecting Kianis’s hair and adjusting small costume details to produce a really atmospheric set of images

 

Kianis – Character and Cosplay shoot

After Kianis’s first shoot , we very promptly arranged a follow-up session to pursue themes that we did not have time to cover during our initial meeting. The first theme was a ‘

30s working class/peaky blinders costume combination, we then changed to a more outlandish steam punk alt fashion outfit and finished the shoot with some colourful male fusion images.

The Bard – Musketeer and Napoleonic Shoot

‘The Bard’, Ciaran Davis, is an actor, costumier, armourer and stuntman. Every so often he visits the studio with an authentic historical costume. Our latest shoot was no exception. Ciaran supplied a fully authentic French late 18th century Musketeers costume complete with antique Spanish sword and also a Napoleonic soldier’s costume. I set up a couple of small stage sets comprising of various props to compliment the period of the outfits. Ciaran skilfully employed his acting skills to characterise each scenario.

Celtic Warrior shoot with Ciaron

Ciaron (The Bard) is an actor, costumier and theatrical armourer. Periodically we arrange a shoot to showcase a new costume. For this shoot Cairon brought a Celtic warrior outfit complete with leather jerkin, cloak, leather arm bands and a very stylish long sword. I experimented with various dramatic lighting styles to maximise the visual impact of Ciaron’s amazing costum.e

Euan – Fashion, Formalwear and Editorial shoot

Euan is an upcoming model and Instagrammer (@euanthum) who got in touch to arrange a studio shoot, which he hadn’t experienced before, his previous experience being outdoor and travel shoots for his Instagram account. We covered black and white portraits with leather jackets using
some of the extensive wardrobe of costumes in our studio, formalwear shots, some arty fantasy shots with candelabra and decanter and ended with some spiky steam punk images!

Actor headshots for Harley

Actor and model Harley got in touch to update his port with some portraits, headshots and costume shots using the props and outfits we have in our studio. We started with some gritty black and white portraits and then progressed onto a Dickensian/cosplay theme with top hat and tuxedo and ended the shoot with a sports and casual theme.

Robin Hood shoot with Ciaron – The Bard

Ciaron booked another shoot to follow on from our previous ‘Johnny Depp’ and Medieval Knight themes. This time we chose the location of Burrs park in Bury as Sherwood Forest. Ciaron provided a full costume including bow, arrows, long sword, hooded jerkin and breaches and after a short walk beside the river Irwell, we found a wooded bank with many ancient oaks to provide an atmospheric backdrop, giving the resulting images an appropriate mythic feel.
