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

Brad – Alt Fashion and Steam Punk shoot

Brad booked a shoot to add new studio images to his port, and was especially interested in the styles that we offer at JBDI-photography – alt fashion, cosplay and steam punk. We captured a great variety of amazing images during the shoot utilising many of the in-house props that are ready and waiting for clients to enhance the experience of their photoshoot – swords, retro camera. skateboards, steam punk accessories and min stage sets.

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.

Surreal apocalyptic shoot at Antwerp Mansion with actor and model Darren

Darren is a very dedicated and versatile model and actor who I have worked with on a number of occasions. He owns an extensive personal wardrobe as well as a huge variety of props that he can supply to give extra authenticity and excitement to any shoot. We booked a morning at Antwerp mansions, a dedicated run-down and urban photography space in Rusholme, Manchester. Using the grungy and dilapidated interior, we worked on several scenarios to produce some surreal, steampunk, alternative and sci-fi shots.
